Money I spent: $19.50 at Sprouts for some things. Making crockpot butter chicken tomorrow and need garam masala and tomatoes, also picked up 2 keto snack bars for work emergencies, and 3 avocados for $1. The garam masala was a typical spice jar size for $5.99 so that was kind of expensive. That means we get to make a lot more Indian food I guess! Also spent $34.43 gassing up my car. It was down perilously close to empty, so that’s an entire tank worth of gas.
Money I avoided spending: Really wanted to peruse the shelves for “keto snacks” but I knew the pre-packaged stuff would be expensive and NOT the healthiest choice for me.
Extra money I found or made: I found out today that my paycheck for coaching volleyball at the school is ready to be picked up! I’ll go get it tomorrow. 🙂
Use-it-Up Challenge: Used up some things from the fridge/freezer (ground beef, part of an onion, a romaine lettuce heart, some cabbage that’s been in there a while, etc.) to make tacos for dinner. I had my tacos on a bed of cabbage sauteed in avocado oil instead of using taco shells, to be keto-compliant. I also used 3 very ripe avocados in our dinner — 1 was made into guacamole and 2 were sliced, rolled in egg and almond meal, and fried until crispy. Then dipped in ranch. Avocado fries!
Thoughts: Avocado fries are freaking good. A little lime makes all Mexican food even a little bit better.
