It has been another busy week in the kitchen and the pantry is getting fed a little more stock for winter.
Also did 10-1/2 pints of beets from the rest of the beets from my garden.
Meals are starting to come together now that I have the monthly menus posted. Makes life much easier. Thursday night it was just me and had shrimp scampi. Cost $2.
Friday night we had baked pork chops with tomato sauce, mashed potatoes and green beans. Cost for 2 less than $2. Potatoes and green beans were from the garden.
Saturday night was spaghetti with meatballs, mushrooms and sausage for 4 Cost about $5.50 However the left overs fed 2 on Monday night.
Sunday night was beef stir fry with Angel Hair. Cost for 2 around $2.50. Peppers, onion and celery came from the garden.
Tuesday night pizza burgers (sauce from Saturday night is what the burgers were cooked in) mashed potatoes from the garden. Cost for 2 $1.75.
Wednesday night was Chicken cacciatori with egg noodles. Cost for 2 $3.75. However there is enough left for another meal except for the noodles and the chicken broth will be used to make chicken noodle soup for my brother for 2 lunches this weekend absolutely free as there is left over cooked spaghetti from the week in the refrigerator.
Total spent on groceries at the store this week less than $6 and almost $3 of that went to replenish the pantry not for consumption this week.
