If you read my August dinner menu post then you know I planned out our main course to have at dinner time for the whole month of August. You would also know that I have only spent about $124 for August so far at the grocery store.
I thought I would do a post about what else we are eating during the day. After all it is summer and I do have Kid #3 and Kid# 5 to feed on a daily bases. Then I have also had Kid #4 here for part of the summer. Plus there always seems like there are extra kids here to feed at least once or twice a week.
Anyway, Kid # 5 is the main breakfast eater. Today she had leftover pancakes that we bought home from when we went to dinner at Cracker Barrel and a glass of milk. Sunday I made Cinnamon Roll Cake which I originally found on Pinterest. We had this for breakfast 3 days this week. She has also had bagels with cream cheese.
As for lunches, we often eat leftovers. I also have chicken nuggets on hand but Kid # 5 loves then so much I had to set a limit to only having them once a week. One can of tomato soup has made 3 lunches for her. We have also had sandwich items and grilled cheese.
As I type this Kid # 5 has just come in and asked if she can have Ramen for lunch lol :) With this we will have grapes that I bought on sale.
As you can see our breakfasts and lunches usually consist of easy items and dinner is our big meal of the day. Once a week on Sunday I make what I like to call " Sunday Family Brunch" and we have a big breakfast.
We have cheese and crackers, cereal bars, peanuts and we have been eating the last of the girl scout cookies also to eat for snacks. I also have on hand all the ingredients to make brownies and cookies. We also have bananas, apples and grapes. The kids ate on a big jar of applesauce for several day this week too. My husband has also made homemade salsa a couple of times this week and I do have tortilla chips on hand to eat with it.
We are definitely not going hungry :)
