Every Day

August 8: Low Spend Grocery Month Challenge

Brunch today was 2 eggs and some mashed avocado. Hubby ate a turkey sandwich. 

I had bananas that had gotten overripe so I made 2 loaves of homemade banana bread this afternoon. One is for us and one is for a gift.

Dinner tonight was chicken legs. Since Hubby didn’t want anything else with it, I just sliced some cucumbers up on my plate instead of cooking the brussel sprouts. If the chicken in the picture doesn’t look done, it wasn’t. Hubby under cooked it so we put it back in the air fryer for 5 more minutes. Then it was done and tasted delicious. 

Tonight I am going to continue to work on my food inventory and the lists that I have been making so that we know exactly how much food we need to buy for the two of us for one year. If we are going to try to always eat at rock bottom prices, we need to know how much we need of each item. I know there are lists out there by the LDS and other people to guide you. But every family including ours eat differently. So my list and your list would be different.

I hope you all have a great evening.

The air fryer still confuses me, so I have not used it. I suppose I should just throw a chicken breast in and see what happens. You are right about needing lists for your own family.

I told my husband I was uninspired with food (the not kitchen thing makes menu planning a bit of a bear) & asked him to come home from Costco with a few easy meal options. He delivered! I'm so pleased. Yesterday we had delicious pre-made burger patties (fresh) & they were much better than expected. We have a few other options that should get us through the rest of the week. I can't wait to have a kitchen again!
