I did it. I stayed within the contest grocery budget constraints while on vacation AND we even went out to eat. I am pretty darn proud of myself. We ended up taking a large amount of the basic food that I had stashed away in the previous weeks and items from the garden. I bought fresh items and a few other staples the first evening there and we ate like kings! This is a picture of our steak kabobs in the making...the only thing purchased that week was the steak (great deal BTW) and the mushrooms.
So, we are ready to enter the fourth week of the contest and it looks like I'm still trudging along! I have to say, despite always being thrifty, I am looking at every purchase even closer now. I am living proof that you can feed your family healthy, fresh nutritious meals within a tight budget. Yes, it's a little work, but oh-so worth it!
