GAH! I only have $1.38 left in my projected budget (and there are some items that I still NEED). But, it couldn’t be helped – my honey needed some healthy snack foods – he sent me a “mayday” email because the only portable snack foods he could find at the BX and chow hall were things like poptarts, sugary granola bars, sugary cereal, etc. So, I spent $20 on trail mix, mixed nuts, veggie chips, popcorn and dried fruit. It was $20 well spent! I feel so blessed to be able to take care of him!
Actually, I would be going over my projected $100 by the end of the month anyway, so I’m just going to wing it from here and see exactly how much I truly needed to spend. I didn’t know going in to this if I would be able to stick to the $100 and I am proving that it was a little low for me.
Here’s what I have on the menu for this week:
Cold cereal, oatmeal, pumpkin pancakes
Mostly leftovers, otherwise, fruit/veggie tray, cheese & crackers
Monday – Chicken tortilla soup
Tuesday – Spaghetti, steamed veggies, buttery rolls
Wednesday – Broiled or grilled steak (will grill if weather permits), roasted potatoes, buttery rolls
Thursday – Dinner out
Friday – Pizza, smoothies
Saturday – Crockpot chicken, rice, steamed veggies
Sunday – Potato soup
