30 Days of Eating In: Week Two

I went to the grocery store on Day 11 this week and spent $88, which is at least better than last week. So far I am up to $233 for the month.

Below is a list of what I cooked this week. If you decide to try the cornbread recipe (which is very good, by the way) keep in mind that gluten free baked goods spoil very quickly. If you want the leftovers, store them in the freezer. I made the mushroom stroganoff with gluten free flour and Sam Mills spaghetti, which is by far the least expensive pasta I have been able to find locally. We tried it with spaghetti sauce and the flavor combination was a little off, but it worked perfectly with the stroganoff.

Day 8 
Breakfast: Bananas and yogurt 
Lunch: Leftover fajita-ranch chicken wraps
Dinner: Chicken kabobs and rice

*Whenever possible, I double my recipes and freeze the extra. These foods were already cooked and in my freezer.
