It's been two weeks since I launched my cash cook challenge. I've spent $52.41 on groceries in a two week time-frame. I've had every meal - breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks - at home. Some of those, I managed to glean from others (yay! for having Kat home and being invited over for steak dinner) and some I managed to, um, steal (sorry co-workers!) but all in all, I made it. I even lost three pounds!
So, today I am faced with a dilemma. After all this time, I'm really out of ideas for lunch. I've got basically little to nothing in my fridge and freezer. I got paid today. Can't I just order from the deli like I always do on Friday? Don't I deserve to treat myself to my favorite chicken salad sandwich on a buttery croissant?
Well, when I usually order my lunch, I pay $5.50 for a sandwich. That's 10% of what I just spent on food in the past two weeks!!!
Talk about an eye-opener. Talk about a wallet-closer.
(but damn, that chicken salad croissantwich is sooooooooo good!)
