This weeks starts the last week of July which means the last week in the July Food Stamp Challenge. I'm both relieved and a little sad to see the month end. I feel like I did pretty well with the challenge, though it was, obviously, a challenge. I'm pre-writing and scheduling this post while I think about it, so I don't have the total of my Monday grocery shopping. As I write this, I have $49.53 left which, I believe, will definitely get me through the week, especially since this week is full of recipes with ingredients that are already in the house. Most of the grocery shopping this time will consist of fruits and vegetables, since I have leftover money. Those things are expensive!
Anyway, here's what we're eating this week:
Monday: Weigh-in and bible study, which means take-out
Tuesday: Tuna steaks (from the freezer) and corn on the cob
Wednesday: Chocolate chip pancakes (frozen from a couple weeks ago) and fruit
Thursday: Shrimp and pasta, zucchini and/or yellow squash
Friday: I'm at Petco, so Geoff's on his own. I usually get a smoothie
Saturday: Chicken thighs and some sort of veggie tbd
Sunday: Homemade pizza (which may or may not be sourdough, depending on my mood/if I activate the sourdough this week)
That's what we're eating this week...how about you?
