Party and a Meal Plan for this Week

April 4th, 2016 at 12:44 am

Went to my close friend's 50th Girl Get-Together last night. I have to say it was a little bit too girly for me (pink champagne etc), but it was perfect for her and she was so happy. She moved to CA several years ago, and wanted to have a celebration with friends out here. I was so happy to see her!

It was a super late night for me (out until 10:45!) and everyone still said "why are you leaving so early?" I don't drink (honestly, it's too expensive and not fun for me!) and at 10 or so everyone was starting to get pretty tipsy.

It was potluck and I brought chili (and another close friend brought all the stuff for frito pies to go with the chili plus a pie). I took home a big slice of pie for F, who was thrilled!

Today F had a friend over, and we did "make your own pizzas." And I made a big chocolate cake.

Then F had an indoor soccer game (against boys a year older, so it was kind of rough!). Not sure how those 6th grade boys are playing in our age group. But our girls stepped up, and F was super proud to foul someone for the first time! The boys were kind of shocked at how aggressive our girls were, and I was proud!

I did all the grocery shopping for the week. Does it seem like costs are going up to you? We spent $115 for the week (and that did not include the ingredients for the chili I brought to the party which I bought mid-week).

Here's the meal plan:

S - polenta with roasted veggies (red pepper, courgettes, red onion and cauliflower)
M - something from the freezer with salad
T - risotto with peas and goat cheese and sundried tomatoes
W - quesadilla with guacamole
T - tostadas
F - salmon cakes and salad
S - goody plate! (eat up stuff that might go bad!)
S - tuna melts and peas

    I did notice that at the start of last year the cheapest shop I could get was $100per week but at the start of this year $120 was the cheapest I could get, so even in another country I have to agree.

    Yes I think costs are going up.
