$60.00 a Week Challenge: November 9, 2015 Weekly Food Cost


As I mentioned in Saturday's meal plan post, we had our chickens processed this week which means we must use items from our freezer as they are chock full. 

I mentioned we would be trying some freezer meals and sharing recipes for those we really enjoyed.  So far we have had 2 recipes that turned out only ok.  I won't be sharing them.  Those were 
Cranberry Slow-Cooker Pork Loin and Ginger-Peach Slow-Cooker Chicken.  They were slightly tasteless.  We'll keep plugging away at trying them so we can find more winners.

In addition to the grocery store receipts, we didn't take the time to prep lunch for Sunday's farmers market so we treated ourselves to prepared foods from one of our favorite vendors.  That is factored into our weekly budget as well.. 


Here's what we spent this week:

Commissary:  $17.26
  • butter, soda, English muffins, cranberry juice,

Farmer's Market:  $18.00
  • milk, cream, lunch {burek & eggplant parm}, broccoli, and caramel apple

We also had our chickens processed this week at $155.00

Grand Total:  $35.26 + $155.00 = $190.26

I enjoy following your blog and just received my first order from your Apothecary store. The Coconut body butter is great and the soap will make a nice addition to a homemade gift basket I'm putting together for the holiday's (some made by me and some purchased). I don't know how well this would freeze but the recipe is really easy and tastes awesome. I serve it with stir fry veges and rice. My slower cooker is very hot (old model West Bend with the electric plate underneath), I find it's done in less time and have to be careful to not let it dry out. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/53832158022517158/
