Final recap of month at May 9-16 prices

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

I think I did pretty well, considering that hardly anything I was interested in was on sale. Here's a round-up of what I ate -

barley w/cream and butter, eggs w/butter
sausage and eggs
yogurt w/cream, sunflower seeds, cinnamon and flaxmeal
MIM/OIM w/butter, cottage cheese
Donut Muffin w/butter, cottage cheese w/sunflower seeds
Donut Muffin w/butter, eggs cooked in butter
Scrambled eggs with sour cream
Baked Tomato Eggs
eggs poached in butter and cream
Strawberries with various breakfasts as otherwise listed

Lunches -
Cabbage & Mackerel Salad, with or without devilled eggs
Salad of chicken, celery, sunflower seeds, mayo, egg
cheese omelet, with or without salad
salad of Curried Chicken Loaf, cabbage, onion, mayo, sunflower seeds
salad of tuna, celery, sunflower seeds, mayo, egg
Emerald Soup w/eggs
Cabbage Salad w/turkey franks
soup of broth, eggs, tomatoes, spinach; devilled eggs
Chicken Spinach Soup
Pumpkin, Cabbage and Chicken Stoup, with or without sour cream
Pumpkin, Cabbage and Chicken Stoup with peanut butter stuffed celery

Suppers -
chicken with tomato and dressing
Curried Chicken Loaf, sweet potato w/butter
Dump Sticky Chicken, with cauli-rice, or cabbage, or broccoli, or carrots, or green beans
Sausage and Hominy Casserole
Low Carb Taco Bake w/lettuce, ranch and tomatoes
fried cabbage with turkey franks and onion
Chicken and Cabbage LoMein
Chicken Sausage Casserole
Hamburger Barley Soup

I would guess that there's a lot more variety - including not just different names but actually different tastes, appearances, etc. - than there is in many households that aren't on this strict a budge!

So I did all this for $120.69, and got over a pound of meat (which includes eggs and cheese) and almost a pound of veggies per day. Not too bad, if I do say so myself!

Next "month" is apt to be pretty similar, as there aren't many good buys next week, either. I really lucked out the first two months, when pork was on sale for 98 cents a pound and hamburger for $1.97 a pound.
