While everything seems to be turning upside down this week, our food budget journey was pretty clear-cut. With a budget of $150 and a self-imposed goal of $100, I spent $91 on groceries. We missed the church meal this week due to having our Jeep towed, so we had to grab a quick meal out. We spent just under $20. That’s $111. Not bad.
F got his report card on Monday. To celebrate, he was able to choose our dinner. He picked breakfast, so we had pancakes, eggs, sausage, and honeydew. On Tuesday we had pasta with meat sauce and salad. On Wednesday, we had our meal at the mall food court while we waited for the tow truck. I had Subway. Everyone else (excluding Charlotte) chose pizza. Tonight we are having a chicken and biscuit casserole that I discovered in my new casserole cookbook (Thanks, Mom & Dad). Friday will be meat loaf, macaroni & cheese, and broccoli. Saturday is homemade fish sandwiches and mixed vegetables. Sunday will be a leftover buffet!

I’ve been meaning to share some pictures of our Easter visit with my husband’s parents. We had a wonderful time! Of course, it was sad to not be able to spend the holiday with the whole family, but what a joy to share Resurrection Day with Grandma & Papa.
Here is a look at our weekend:
