Project Grocery: I Think We're Alone Now

Well, we were. Mr left Wednesday night for his annual cabin trip, which left me here with the kids until Sunday. Except not, since my mom was with me from Friday morning until Saturday night.

I cannot for the life of me imagine what I would have done without her.*

One of the things she graciously allowed me to do was go out grocery shopping so that we wouldn't have to try and squeeze it in some evening after work**, and since Mr had already stocked the house with treats for me before he left, I was able to resist the temptation of the Wavy Lays aisle and managed to come in under budget.

I spent $102.44, despite the fact that I bought three different kinds of yummy cheese for our date night on Monday, and had to buy the cursed (very generic) disposable diapers that are crouching malevolently behind the pizza. This makes me happy. (The dollars, not the malevolent diapers.)

We're eating Chana Masala, Slow Cooker Korean Tacos, Chicken Tikka Masala, and Pork Chops this week. Oh, and cheese. With crusty baguettes, and PC shrimp hors d'oeuvres. I may not be a food blogger, but this girl is pretty excited about her suppers this week.

*This is a lie. I can imagine it quite vividly, and it involves yelling, tears, and biting. And the kids would probably act up too.
