$60.00 A Week Grocery Budget Challenge + Meal Plan - Week of August 29, 2016


Taco Meat Quesadilla
This post is a bit late.....I completely forgot to set it to go live.  Just part of the craziness of the week.  :)

Well, we now have a surplus of potatoes!!  They have been somewhat neglected in the back of the garden and I decided to stick my hand in the ground on Saturday to see what they looked like and lo and behold they are beautiful!!  The green beans are winding down - I forgot to replant, so I bought some this week.  I did not plant melons {I stink at growing them} so that was purchased at the farmer's market as well.  Meat again comes from the back-stock in the freezer.
