Week 21: Project Food Budget

Week 21 of Reluctant Vegetarian's Project: Food Budget

Goal: $75
Actual: $50.93

I've been over the past two weeks and vowed to reign it in this week. Turns out that I still had lots of ingredients from last week's budget, so this week's budget went for some supplementary ingredients and staples to make
But the main part of the budget went for fresh fruit and veggies. I eat a ton of them both, and now that hot weather's here, I've been eating lots of salads. I've also been continuing to bake my own bread. And this week when I needed some pitas, I was happy to find ones in the freezer I'd frozen a while back. It pays to make your own things and freeze them for when you need them!

What this week's budget does not include is all the ingredients for a dinner party for six this weekend. I haven't bought stuff for it yet, but I'm wondering whether I should have a separate budget for food for entertaining. What does everyone else do?

  1. that's an interesting question. i tend to feel like entertaining and house guests are outside of the norm, but have a hard time deciding myself.

    i'd be interested to hear other's thoughts as well.
