Total amount spent on groceries this week (including treats) is $37.65. All that we still need to buy are snow peas from Tomavo. I didn’t have any glass jars with me when I went this morning, and I was in quite a rush so I didn’t grab any. We’ll surely purchase these tomorrow and they usually cost less than $1.00. All in all, I’m very pleased with our budget for this week’s grocery. Hopefully we can keep a low budget for the following week as well to make up for going to the restaurant a couple of times this week.

Which of these meals would you to be posted as a recipe on the blog? Let us know in the comments! We’re hoping to start posting more recipes as time goes on and we’d love to get your input.
