I'm in again
I went shopping at the grocery yesterday and went to the farmer's market today. We didn't shop at all last week and were really low on essentials. Now that ds is really eating, there's no stopping him!
Anyhoo, spent about $100, which was more than I anticipated, but not toomuch more.
My challenge for this month is to finish off what's left in the pantry from when we started this in Jan and really minimalize shopping. We're going away for 8 days toward the end of the month and I would really like to not have to do a shop before then except for milk, eggs, and fruit and veg. That's my goal.
Yesterday we had leftovers for dinner. Cleaned out the fridge from last week and had lentil soup, crispy rice noodles with ginger sauce, and mac n cheese. Also made some peanut butter cookies, not really cookies at all, but dd thinks they are delicious which is great because lately she eats like a bird. And it only used things I already had in my pantry. Would be happy to share the recipe if anyone is interested.
NuMommy - I've got a few recipes for ricotta if you're interested. Baked ricotta. Ricotta frittata. Ricotta and spinach fritters. Ricotta tart. Let me know if you want any of the recipes.
