Our $93 grocery trip + what's for eats this week!

So far, we have spent $83. We spent $53 at Walmart and $30 at VG's. I have set aside $10 to buy a turkey and fresh green beans to go with our Thanksgiving meal we will be preparing and enjoying at home. We have not yet purchased these items (but will by end of the day Monday).


Here's what we bought from Walmart:
  • Big box of diapers
  • Grapes
  • Summer sausage
  • White rice
  • Hot dog buns
  • Granny Smith apples
  • Mushrooms
  • Yogurt
  • French fries
  • Cheese hot dogs
  • Green pepper
  • Bananas
  • Gallon of organic whole milk

Here's what we bought from VG's:
  • Three bags of cinnamon-sugar pita chips
  • Big American sub
  • Half peck of honey crisp apples
  • Wavy Lay's potato chips
Here's our menu for the week:

Hot dogs and French fries
Creamy chicken pot pie soup and biscuits
Pasta bake and garlic bread
Thanksgiving feast
Leftovers x3

Throughout the month of November, we have slowly been stocking up on items we want for our Thanksgiving feast. Here is our menu for that:

Appetizers
-Sausage with cheese ball and crackers

The Feast
-Turkey
-Mashed potatoes
-Stuffing
-Gravy
-Roasted green beans

Dessert
-Cheesecake with cherries
-Pumpkin fluff dip with cinnamon-sugar pita chips

We're keeping our feast relatively simple this year (as compared to previous years). My goal is to spend less time in the kitchen and more time playing. We'll see how that goes!
