Hunger Challenge: Week 2
Now for WEEK TWO:
(We are trying to live off of 1/2 the average amount that would be allotted us if we were on Food Stamps)
Boy did I get some good grocery deals for this week!!!
Pork Chops for $1.29/lb
Boneless/Skinless Chicken Breast for $1.39/lb
Cereal for $1.50/box
Eggs were 99 cents/doz
Bananas 3 lbs/$1
10 lbs potatoes---$1
And a Halloween pumpkin for $1.39 (10 cents a pound!!!)
It's a good week for great deals!!!
I bought 3 more gallons of milk at the dairy for $5.13.
I went back for some essentials and some cottage bread---in case I don't have time or inclination to bake bread this week. Also found avocados on sale 3/$1! Yummy guacamole, here we come!
That means I've spent $46.51 for this week so far. I also have $3.77 carried over from last week. So I still have $7.26 still in my pocket!
Our planned menu for the week goes like this:
Breakfasts: cereal, bread pudding, eggs, toast, oatmeal, waffles, french toast
Lunches: Sandwiches, leftovers, ramen noodles
Potatoes Au Gratin
Sweet and Sour Pork
Oven Fried Chicken
Potato and Onion Soup
Fruits and Veggies to add to meals:
Baked banana squash or mashed
I might make bread and rolls again. I still have corn tortillas in the freezer...will try to make homemade chips.
Treats: peanut butter cookies, peach ice cream, apple pie (made from windfall apples found near Lizzy's apartment), homemade chips and guacamole!
