Here is the first post of many to come where I share some of the meals I make each month, along with some information on my grocery budget. The meals immediately below are from the month of February, during which I spent a total of $170.76 on groceries, or about $42.69 per week. The photos below are the meals I ate the most during this time. I also had many other meals that did not make the photograph cut. I found the first two recipes on Pinterest: African Sweet Potato Soup and Ethiopian Yataklete Kilkil.
The next series of recipes were my favorite meals from March. During this month I spent $92.81 on groceries, or about $30.94 for each of the three weeks I was in Milwaukee (I spent one week at home for spring break). The first is one of my meal preps for the month:
The last two meals from March have heavily influenced my meals so far in April. Later this month I'll share my adaptation of a wonderful dahl recipe! I've also been keeping track of specific food items I spend my money on so I can share how to eat an adequate but affordable diet. I've been shopping around to make sure I'm getting the biggest bang for my buck!
I didn't take enough photos last week to make a decent recap post, so I'll combine it with this week's and hopefully have it posted on Sunday. Last week was full of stress over a big exam, but I also got to see Cirque du Soleil: Corteo and start my in-patient job shadowing. More stories to come. Have a great rest of your week!
Hi my name is Emilee and these are my adventures as a young adult living in Milwaukee. Here I will share my experiences as I navigate through college. Thanks for stopping by!
