Tonight was greek pork chops and grits. The 12 pack of grits was $2.38, the greek dressing was $1.88. The pack of four pork chops was $4.06 and the cheese probably cost about $0.75 cents, and the seasonings were about $0.50. The whole meal, which fed both of us was $9.57. Not my cheapest meal by far, but still for what we got- it was a great deal. Tomorrow I will plan the meals I need to shop for on Wednesday when I do grocery shopping.

We had Mexican food tonight. It was cheap for me because I didn't have to pay for it, but it cost someone some money. It was a huge spread. My friends and family got together and threw a birthday party for me and one of my daughters. They really showed us that we were loved. And btw, you can never go wrong cooking pork chops.
My partner and I went on a weekend trip to Phillip Islands here in Vic, Australia and we decided to stay in a hostel where we had access to a kitchen. The idea was to try not to overspend by eating out in restaurants. So we bought a meal for two, cooked us some steak and veggies which was surprisingly really good considering we only had butter, salt, and pepper as condiments. Next day we had a breakfast of eggs, bacon, and toast. All that, we spend 30 something bucks - Dinner and Breakfast. Given the prices here in Oz, that weekend getaway wasn't really splurgy at all.
