What We Ate March 12 - 18


Last week I was disappointed at how much money we spent on food.  This week, I’m very pleased with how we've done with our meals.  We ate well and spent almost nothing.  I love it when that happens!  We bought only a single 4 litre jug of milk, bringing our month’s grocery spending total to $107.33

Here’s what we ate:

Monday, March 12:
  • Breakfast – Eggs, toast, dried apricots
  • Supper – Tomato soup “jazzed up” with mashed pinto beans, brown rice, corn, and chili powder served with baked tortilla chips made from leftover wheat and white flour tortillas seasoned with taco seasoning.  Tapioca cream pudding for dessert.


Tuesday, March 13:


Wednesday, March 14:


Thursday, March 15:
  • Breakfast – Leftover quiche, apples
  • Supper – Salmon loaf, coleslaw, leftover rice from Tuesday, leftover applesauce pie


Friday, March 16:
  • Breakfast – Granola, yogurt, prunes
  • Supper – Pork and bean pocket breads from the freezer, carrot, apple and raisin salad, canned cherries


Saturday, March 17:
  • Breakfast – Poached eggs and creamed spinach on toast
  • Supper – Spaghetti alla ceci, chocolate refrigerator cookies
