Since this is the first month we’ve kept complete records of food we’ve eaten over a month. The most important observation is that preparing your own food saves a lot of money.
A friend visiting from Australia took us out to lunch, so technically our lunch was free! My sweet and spicy seafood fried rice was $10.95 on the menu, but with tax and tip would be close to $12 a serve.
A repeat of last night’s Lemon Orzo Soup but accompanied by the ready-to-bake roast garlic bread.
- Lemon chicken orzo soup – $1.15 a serve
- Simple Truth Ready to bake garlic bread – $3.99 for the loaf (expensive for bread but delicious) or $2.00 per serve because we ended up eating the whole loaf between us.
