We were quite busy last week preparing for the wedding, but still managed to do well with the Challenge. My goal was $30 a week, and I'm happy to say that I finished under the budget, mainly because I was able to stretch what I had cooked to cover several meals.
Overall, I spent $20.58 for the week on groceries and a little stockpiling, and $8.77 at ChickFilA for a missions fundraiser in which we participated. I'm very pleased that we were able to stay under the budget!
Tonight, I took frozen turkey bones from Thanksgiving and made a simple turkey and rice soup with basil, the rest of the cheap shredded carrots and an onion. It was filling enough to have with just a few crackers.
