Day 99–Starting Week 14–Budget and Menu

What a week this has been! And the week to come looks just as slam packed as last week. My local ham is almost ready and we can’t wait to try it along with our fresh, local asparagus! In the coming week, we are veering slightly from our 70-80% local foods. Mainly because I am camping with my girl Ellie and her BFF for an all girls campout. We’ll be gone two days and two nights and should have great weather. So, our menu reflects more prepared foods than usual–I have yet to find a local source for s’more ingredients 🙂 We came in just under budget at $97.92!

Here is how our budget worked out for this week:

  • Mae Farm (ham): $15.00
  • Coon Rock Farm (sausage): $6.00
  • Ball Produce (strawberries and asparagus): $10.00
  • Trader Joes (ground turkey, turkey dogs, rolls, pineapple, blackberries, mango, bananas,oatmeal): 45.60
  • Lowes Foods (chocolate bars, graham crackers, marshmallows, pectin, lemon juice, etc): $21.32

What are we having this week? Here is our menu:

  • Sunday–Easter supper–honey mustard glazed ham, roasted asparagus, broccoli salad, biscuits, pie
  • Sunday–Campout dinner–turkey dogs w/vegetarian chili, fruit salad
  • Monday–breakfast at camp–Dutch oven breakfast–eggs, hashbrowns, sausage, cheese
  • Monday–lunch–sandwiches and fruit salad
  • Monday–dinner–turkey tacos, vegetables, fruit salad
  • Tuesday–breakfast–pancakes and bacon
  •  Tuesday–lunch–sandwiches and whatever is left!
  •  Tuesday–dinner–ham omelets (back home again)
  • Wednesday–oatmeal
  • Thursday–out with my BFF
  • Friday–tuna salad sandwiches

Now, off to pack the car, the girls and the dog for a couple of days at the lake! Have a wonderful week!
