Feeding 5 For $125 Per Week: 3rd Week of February 2017

Dorothy Lane Market: $74.68

Yesterday I had 120 minutes to get the house clean, make icing and ice a cake, print out and cut some games, make three appetizers, and go to the store. I hit the nearest (and most expensive) store, bought the basics of what we needed for the party, and iced the cake. We’ll need to hit the store for soy milk, cow’s milk, and yogurt, but are otherwise eating from the pantry.

I didn’t have 10 minutes to spare to take a picture, but I bought tomatoes, fresh veggies, some heart shaped cookies, sour cream, cheese, guac, bacon, crescent rolls, pop, whipping cream, spaghetti sauce, and refried beans.

So much for icing the cake. I had to settle for slapping the icing on as fast as I could and printing out a couple pictures. The girls didn’t care. I did make the icing myself. Canned icing is vile.
