Then this morning Jon and I headed to see his dad and my mom. We headed back home around 2 this afternoon. We picked up our quarter of our cow. I am so excited to start cooking with ground beef again.
I started to plan what we were eating for the week and planned my grocery list. I spent a little more than I thought I would this week but that is ok. I did have a gift card to lower the price as well. So that helped. I ended up spending around $74.00 this week. Not bad for a whole month we only spent $129.00 on groceries. I think that has been my best so far. I had budgeted $50.00 a week to equal $200.00 for a month. So I am under budget. YEAH!!! For once!
Orange-Chicken Rice Bowl from Kraft. It was tasty. Jon is taking the rest to work tomorrow for lunch. Tonight was the first time that I boiled a bag of rice. In the past I would have used the microwave but since ours does not work I had to buy the ones that you can boil in a bag.
Here is our weekly menu for dinners this week. You can also find the menu in my tabs at the top called "Meals this Week". I am going to try to post new recipes that I find to try out and if anyone wants to know where they are from please feel free to contact me. I will try to include a link but in case I forget just leave a comment.
Well it is almost time for Jon and my show to come on The Wild Within on the Travel Channel. I hope that everyone had a good weekend!
