Project Food Budget: Week 10

31 03 2011

Nothing huge to note this week, however, Mother of 2Chili did report that she quite enjoyed the Veggie Yakisoba leftovers while she was housesitting for our recent vacation. “Grams,” as our dog and cat call her, never knows what she may find in the fridge when she’s here for a visit. Luckily, this time, she found something quite tasty.

I am still not caught back up on my life from being gone for a few days, so, this week I took the easy way out and just ordered from Amazon Fresh. When you are behind in everything and working around the clock, a little extra cost for home delivery is worth it. I have been glued to my desk chair for what seems like three solid days, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Life should be back on track on time for the weekend!

Here’s this week’s damage:

In fact, it’s in the oven right now! It shifted a day due to an impromptu pancake night last night. It’s one of 2Chili’s favorite loaves, meat or otherwise…
