Spicy Sausage Pasta

Spicy Sausage Pasta

I used to really love grocery shopping, but it’s become more and more of a chore. I think meal planning, compounded with cooking, compounded with cleaning, compounded with shopping, compounded with blogging, has just pushed me over the edge. Luckily, Harris Teeter offers an “Express Lane” service. You go online, select the products you wantContinue Reading

What’s Cooking – March 30 – April 5

What’s Cooking – March 30 – April 5

Five Saturdays in March hit our grocery budget hard. We’re going to get back on track in April, for sure. Since we’re eating healthier and M is bringing lunch at least twice a week, it’s become really, really hard to shop for under $80. We’re teetering around $115/week, so I’m going to try and getContinue Reading

What’s Cooking: March 9-March 15

Tonight is “Irish Night” in our house. It’s this week’s Culinary Challenge and it couldn’t have come at a better time. As I mentioned last week, M has a business trip. Well, flights finally dropped enough that I’ll be able to travel with him for the first part of the trip, but it means we’llContinue Reading

What’s Cooking – February 16-23

I hope everyone had a fantastic Valentine’s Day! M and I celebrated Austin’s second birthday (tear) by completely spoiling him. He had steak for dinner, a birthday cookie and a few treats from our local dog store. We can’t wait to let him dig into them, especially the cheese wrapped bully stick. Oh my. IContinue Reading

Working It Out and What’s Cooking – February 1-8

That’s a wrap folks. January is officially one for the books. My goal for this month was to eat more out of the pantry and to spend less then $80/week at the grocery store. Success! I went $1 over this past week, but since I had to buy olive oil and vegetable oil ($13 total),Continue Reading

STRIKE! and Grocery Spending, Week 3

First, THIS happened over the weekend. We (along with a bunch of our friends) got to go bowling at the White House! We had champagne and mimosas, because it’s the BOWLING AT THE WHITE HOUSE! The bowling alley itself is actually under the Old Executive Buildings, off in a basement and definitely feeling very ’60s…Continue Reading

Grocery Spending, Week 2

Grocery Spending, Week 2

It was another fantastic week at the grocery store. Last week, I spent a total of $64 for groceries. This week, I will spend $73 total. I spent $68.23 at Harris Teeter and I’m going to spend another $5 later in the week at Trader Joe’s. Pork tenderloin is much less expensive there, and sinceContinue Reading

Grocery Spending, Week 1

Grocery Spending, Week 1

My goal last week was to spend $80 or less at the grocery store. Since we’re doing a pantry cleanout, I’m trying to be smarter about using the items we already have and only purchasing essential ingredients or produce. I did really well, especially considering we decided to host Sibling Christmas and I hadn’t budgetedContinue Reading
