Food and Money

We spend the most money on food. It’s kind of embarrassing.

So we’re out of our allotted food budget and pay day is still far away – we don’t have a fully stocked freezer of meat and I’m low on almost everything else.

Dinner tonight is kind of a mayhem mishap that smells delicious so far.


Here’s what we did:

I have a pound of breakfast sausage, onions, garlic, rice and eggs. We also have some jalepeno poppers in the fridge gifted to us by my mom – so we’ll throw those in the oven too.

I made 1 C of rice with some basil, curry and a bit of EVOO.

I’ll fry the onions in the leftover bacon grease and some extra butter, roast some of the garlic, fry the other with the onions and when they’re translucent I’ll add the sausage.

When the sausage is browned I’ll remove from heat and set aside. Fry up some eggs sunny side up and layer like …

Sausage, onions, garlic.

Roasted garlic and jalepeno poppers on the side. We can add a green salad as well if needed.


I spent $0 on dinner and we’ll have left overs for breakfast (the sausage). I incorporated garlic which I’m trying to do in every way possible right now because I’m battling a yeast overgrowth in my stomach. Which is why my eye’s aren’t getting any better and my sinuses are on strike.

Healthy for our wallets and our bellies! How do you guys do it? Last minute panic that you have dinner in an hour and nothing in the fridge? Or you’re just TIRED? Oh my word, that’s such a battle.

  1. I tend to do breakfast dinners when I feel I’m out of everything – french toast, eggs, pancakes, etc =) Quick, easy, and I LOVE breakfast. Either that OR I do spaghetti sauce and noodles, cuz I pretty much always have that in stock.

  2. I do that too!! so fun. Last night the kids had pancakes from the freezer that we had leftover from another time. I’ve been overdoing breakfast a little bit, so thats why I added rice tonight – make everyone feel like I’m trying a little harder. haha!
