What have I been eating this (last) week?

While I am taking part in my $50 a month spent on food grocery challenge, I will be documenting what I eat each week.  Some people have expressed concerns that I can't possible eat enough on just $50 a month.  I hope this type of documentation puts their fears to rest. 

This week, most of my food is coming from food that I already had in the house.  Next week you will start to see more items from my recent shopping trips making their way into my meals.  Assume that I drank water with my meals unless I specify otherwise.

  1. Your menu sounds yummy! I love tuna noodle casserole; it's my favorite!

  2. What's in your lasagna soup? That sounds really good! If you have time, I'd love if you could share the recipe.

  3. That is pretty good. Wow I am impressed.

  4. No need to be concerned you are obviously eating well, from all the food groups.

  5. Moriah, I got the recipe from the Thrifty Cheapskate blog (a blog I really enjoy!). Here is the link to the recipe:

  6. Does your family ever get tired of cereal and milk? My dd loves waffles, I make them ahead and freeze them for her to rotate with her cereal.

  7. Yep! I get tired of almost anything I eat. I do mix it up... sometimes it is toast and PB, sometimes a banana and PB, sometimes toast and jelly, sometimes cereal. On weekends I try to sometimes make something more substantial like eggs or pancakes.
