So, it's back to the $100.00 a week challenge. We will be buying some slurge items every once in a while but my goal is to make it possible to eat under $100.00 a week. I'm going to try and break it up for you all a little better this time as well at the end.
Monday – Grilled steaks, mashed potatoes, carrots
Tuesday – Cooking for City Group – GF pasta with sausage, salad
Wednesday – Hamburgers, veggie
Thursday – Chicken tacos
Friday – Chicken tenders, salad
Saturady – Chicken noodle soup
Sunday – Sloppy lentils
We buy our produce in one bulk CSA. I'm not including spices or honey because they are staples at our house.
$24.00 (CSA veggies/fruits)
+ $8.00 Monday for steaks.
+ $9.50 Tuesday for gluten free pasta and tomatoes. Sausage was given to us free!
+ $8.99 Wednesday for burger and gluten free buns.
+ $16.21 Thursday for whole chicken, cheese, and masa.
+ $4.95 Friday for chicken tenders.
+ $3.00 Saturday for gluten free pasta. Chicken and stock is from Thursday.
+ $3.65 Sunday for lentils and tomato products, use left over cheese from Thursday.
= $78.30 for 7 dinners made with organic pasturized real food!
We use left overs for lunches. We also buy eggs for $4.00, 1 gallon of raw milk for $9.00. I'll also buy a loaf of Udi's bread ($4.99) and peanut butter ($3.00) for lunches during the week. I also bought a pack of lamb bacon to try which was $10.85. A splurg for sure but we're excited to try it!
So the total was $110.14. Without the splurg of the lamb bacon it would have been $99.29. See, you can do this!
