Food budget Week 2

I know I said last week was week 2, it just seemed weird since the first one was only counting 3 days, so this is week 2. Again. There will be no more week 2s! We spent $90.78. We were trying to keep it down to redeem the fact that we went way over last week. It didn’t quite work, but we tried! And we did do okay. What we bought:

We made some really yummy things this week too!  We tried the Lemon Glazed Turkey Meatballs and  they were awesome!

I also did the crispy beef, which was just ok though, I put too much lime in the marinade.  We also tried the Colombian roast chicken legs which we all liked, but would cook a bit differently if we did it again. I ended up marinating them all day and then cooking at 400 for about an hour, that was too long! They were still tasty. Last night we had some Mahi Mahi tacos that were pretty great too.

Truthfully, we are needing to go to the store! But I want to wait until tomorrow so we don’t add anymore to this week’s spending. Here’s what I’m kind of planning for next week:

Posole-ish soup with potatoes

BBQ chicken or pork to use up some bbq sauce I bought

Beefy macaroni and cheese

Black bean and sweet potato tacos

Probably more mahi mahi and some cheesy broccoli quinoa

An onion and broccoli or kale quiche

And for my birthday I am going to make this Spaghetti Bolognese!
