$100 Food Budget – Day 7

foodbudgetchallenge

I had a couple of Banquet Turkey Pot Pies for dinner. Pot pies always remind me of my childhood. My mom would often buy pot pies for the family and we would then carve a letter into the crust to denote the owner of each pie. For example, I would always carve an “S” in my pot pie to indicate that it was for Sam.

I imagine my mom bought pot pies so often because it’s something that most of her finicky children would agree to eat. Plus, pot pies are ridiculously cheap, which is definitely an advantage when you have eight kids to feed. Even today they’re only 64 cents a piece at Walmart. If you eat two of them in one meal it will only set you back $1.28. And while I realize they’re probably not very healthy, they do provide a small amount of vegetables.

Anyway, I didn’t buy any food today.

Total Spent: $23.30

Remaining Cash: $76.70

$100 Food Budget – Day 5

foodbudgetchallenge

The loaf of bread I bought the other day is already nearly gone. I’ve been eating a lot of sandwiches. Sometimes they’re peanut butter, turkey, or just plain cheese but at any rate I’ve been going through a lot of bread.

Today I walked into the store carrying only six one-dollar coins. It was a pretty weird feeling knowing that I could only spend a maximum of six bucks. I’m sure it’s a feeling that many Americans have grown accustomed to these days. Anyway, today I bought:

  • Sandwich Meat (Turkey)
  • Cheese
  • One 2-liter bottle of generic raspberry soda

Total Spent: $23.30

Remaining Cash: $$76.70

The bottle of soda seemed a little extravagant. Hopefully I won’t miss that 78 cents too much later.

Behold My Container Collection!

So as mentioned in a previous blog post, Hillshire Farms Honey Roasted Turkey is my favourite sandwich meat ever. Not only is it a delicious food, but it comes in a handy little reusable plastic container.

The containers are really too good to throw away. In fact, I’ve seen the same ones for sale at Shopko. The only problem is, I have an ever grow collection and I’m not quite sure what to do with it.

So if you have any ideas for my little plastic containers, feel free to let me know. In the mean time I shall continue building my collection. :P

Mr Nethead Builds A Sandwich

I arrived home from a long day of work just a short time ago. Feeling hungry, I decided it would be in my best interest to build a delicious sandwich. I started with two slices of bread.

My favourite bread is Sara Lee 100% Whole Wheat with Honey. Luckily, that’s the very bread I had on hand.

No that’s not mustard. I hate mustard. That’s genuine old fashioned Wisconsin cheese spread. Mmmm. I slathered some on both slices of bread. Then it was time to add meat.

Hillshire Farms Honey Roasted Turkey is my favourite sandwich meat ever! I also decided to throw on some Hormel turkey pepperonis. (I know, I know, that’s a lot of turkey.)

Here we see that the sandwich is nearly complete. Now all we need to do is put both sides together.

Ta da! It’s a delicious sandwich indeed. *eats sandwich* For best results, enjoy with an ice cold Sunkist Lemonade.
