Weekend Update

Here's a grocery shopping update.

At the end of the work week, I had spent $35 at Trader Joe's, $45 at Aldi, $8 on farm eggs, and $7 at the milk farm.  $95 to prepare for the coming week is not bad at all.  Though I will need to get some more produce midweek next week, and am running low on grassfed ground beef.  I will need to get some one way or another next weekend - from the local ranch, Trader Joe's frozen imported, or Costco's organic (not 100% grassed but still good). I put off a trip to Costco until next weekend, too.

Here's what we've been eating this weekend (since I didn't put it on the plan last week).

Lunches:
tuna salad (Trader Joe's canned tuna + real sour cream + seasonings)
veggie chips
grapes
bananas & almond butter

Dinners:
bean-less chili w/ cheddar, sour cream, & guacamole
meaty tomato sauce, zucchini, & mozzarella bake (my version of primal lasagna) x2

Dessert:
flour-less zucchini brownies

 


We ate these sweet carmelized onion chicken burgers in our lunches this past week.  I would grill them at home, then cool them and chop them up for the lunch containers.  Finally, a "lunchmeat" everyone in the family likes that isn't crazy expensive (only $3 something per pound)!  Yes, they contain a small amount of sugar, but at 1g per serving, I am not worried.  And there might be msg lurking in there somewhere in the "spices" or "natural flavor", but I haven't gotten any headaches, so I feel pretty OK about these so far.  While they look kind of gross, and my husband jokes "Yum, pressed chicken parts," even he admits to liking them.  I will be buying them again!  If you don't go to Costco, check out the chile lime chicken burgers in the frozen aisle at Trader Joe's. We like those, too.
