Pin It Ugh...My Internet has been acting up all day again...More on this tomorrow. Today I'm going to try to post but we'll see if it happens. So it's going to be a very short post.
My food waste for this week:
I was so close, so close to not having any waste this week until I found this 1/3 of a mango that kids never finished. It's just sad because it's such a small piece that could easily be avoided...Oh, well. I spent, 15c tops on it (the whole mango was on sale for 50c.).
Talking about the sales, I've never posted my shopping trips from last week but we actually spent pretty much half of our grocery budget in one week. $132.39 to be exact. But I have an excuse-we did spend about $40 on diapers alone but we should be set for a couple of months (there is going to be another promotion in Smiths for diapers in the middle of May, so I will buy more but I will not spent nearly as much). Oh, and I will get almost $50 in different beer rebates. I do love beer rebates! They save us quite a bit of money every month!
As for our menu this week, it's going to be very simple. We will be gone for 2 days, so we will mostly eat out of a fridge/pantry this week. I do need to buy some raisins and fruits. Baby has been pretty constipated in the last few days, so he needs more fiber in hid diet :)
So here's our menu:
Mon- leftover beef stir-fry (see picture above), brown rice
Tues.- borcsht (Russian beet soup, read, more fiber for the baby :)
Thurs.-chicken Caesar salad
Fr.-out of town (will take some sandwiches with us for the road)
Sat.-out of town
Sun.-pizza, carrots, dessert (Mama-is-not-cooking Day)
