We'll be saving the "leftover" in our budget toward our CSA this week.
We still have very full freezers plus a gallon of milk, asparagus, carrots, celery, tomatoes, a pineapple, a few apples and a pear left from last week, so we will have plenty to eat this week! I did pay full price for the kids' toothpaste since we were completely out and our children refuse to use "grown up" toothpaste - we had room in the budget and didn't want to fight them on it right now! I'll be using the ginger root in a new-to-us recipe this next week and I'm pretty excited about it - it's gotten rave reviews from several people who have tried it.
Come back on Monday to see what we're eating this week!
