What I spent and What We Ate (February 4-10)

goal budget is $125/week or $500/month
$76.50– FreshDirect
$6.50– produce club
$31.36 – Aldi
total – $114.36  ($10 under budget!)
I was pretty pleased with my cooking this week.  I was able to use up some produce (butternut squash, cauliflower and sweet potatoes) and use up the coconut milk that was going to expire next month!  We also stuck to our goal of eating vegetarian a few times week.  We had 2 “meal kits” that we ordered from FreshDirect, they were ok–although extremely convenient, the flavors and cooking methods aren’t our favorites.
