Looking in the fridge, I have a bunch of leftovers. There’s almost nothing there that makes one full dish, but if we are all willing to have a bizarre buffet tomorrow...
I just told the kids yesterday that we were going to have an "eat weird food" night soon. We have a bunch of random things that need to get used up: one last chicken tender, two breaded fish filets, a couple of veggie burgers, some quinoa/beans/corn that I made (that I suspect I'll be the only one eating), etc. I love the term "bizarre buffet" though. I think I may steal it!
OK, I've started posting a couple of times and got pulled away, but I really need some accountability, so I'm jumping in here.
We've done really well so far this month, but last night I cave to the request for pizza because the new place we've been waiting for finally opened, and I had a coupon. Except there is NO WAY those pizzas are even close to 11 inches (we measured them at a smidge over 9--the BOXES aren't even 11 inches ), so my plan for us to share wasn't going to work. And I got sucked in by the brownie pie, so between ordering an extra pizza and the brownie pie, my spending went from the planned $9 or so to $27 Needless to say, we won't be going back there, which is good because the brownie pie was incredible, and I should avoid it at all costs.
Today DH is taking DD to a class and he and DD12 will go to the science center, but that's money out of the Family Fun budget category, and tomorrow we have tickets to a musical and will need dinner out, so that will come out of the Outside Food category. Other than that, I'm staying home and working and eating quinoa, beans, and corn, so no anticipated expenses!
9: Groceries (budgeted): $47
10: Disappointing pizza: $27
11: Class fee: $50 (budgeted); Science center entry and lunch: TBD
