My $100 A Month Grocery Budget – Week 10 of 52

It was another great week in the grocery spending department. I only spent $4.69 on groceries {milk} as most of my meals were eaten on vacation in Vermont. The HH said he survived on leftovers and crackers.  

Here’s a look at most of the meals we ate last week:

The Girl and I enjoyed giant taco salads from Loco Coco’s Tacos for lunch in Kittery, Maine on our way out of town. They were so huge that we didn’t eat anything else for the rest of the day. 

The next morning we ate the “free” breakfast that was offered at the hotel. 

Then before our first day of class at King Arthur, we each had a big salad. After class we wandered through the cook shop and since they were closing in a few minutes, they unexpectedly handed us a free baguette. 

We took it back to the hotel and had bread and butter and tea for dinner. 🙂

The next morning we decided to head out early so we could visit the town of Woodstock, Vermont and stop by Farmhouse Pottery. On the way there we passed by a place called Skinny Pancake and decided to stop in and check it out. 

I ordered their spinach and chicken crepe and it was fantastic. I don’t remember what The Girl had but she liked hers as well. 

The next morning we were up bright and early {6 am} so we grabbed a little something before heading out the door. Our classes at King Arthur Flour didn’t start until noon so there was plenty of time for exploring in the mornings, which we liked. 

Our first stop was an errand and after we were done with that, we headed to the town of White River Junction for a look around.

We passed by a “pie” shop and becuase the pies in the display case {albeiet a bit on the expensive side} looked the like real deal, we decided to eat there for lunch.

A look at all the baked goods I came back from Vermont with {The Girl came home with the exact same thing}. The Bakewell tart and Victoria sponge are MIA {we gave those to the front desk staff at the hotel}. 

Our hotel room had a freezer so we were able to freeze all the baked goods we wanted to keep until it was time to go home. We them packed everything into coolers for the ride home.

Fact: Meat pies are always better served with a side of mashed potatoes and gravy. 

When I got back home after the baking class, I had the HH sample everything. The English muffins and sticky toffee pudding were his favorites {and mine too}. 

Also, it made me feel better knowing that he too agreed with me that the meat pie needed to be a bit larger/taller {too much crust to filling ratio} and that both the meat pie and the pasty needed more seasonings. 

I made butter chicken and served it with rice on Sunday. 

This morning I set out 11 jars on the kitchen counter with plans to open and use up the contents throughout the week.

Here’s a list of the jars I’m hoping to empty this week: 

The big grocery store purchase of the week: $4.69 for a gallon of milk. 

Overall it was a pretty good week. After a quick check of the sales flyers, I noticed cabbage and potatoes are on sale this week {for St. Patrick’s Day} so I’ll probably grab those if I’m out and about this week. Otherwise, the plan is to spend as little as possible this month so I can get my grocery budget back on track.

How about YOU? Have you spotted any deals lately? Curious minds want to know.
