Yes, I only went shopping three times in September. We apparently haven't been eating, because I came in about $17 under budget in terms of "food actually purchased for us" and was therefore able to incorporate my dad's present into our grocery budget, which is good since we don't really have a gift budget--if we want to buy gifts we have to cut back somewhere else. (Had our loaves and fishes not been so multiplied, Dad would have gotten a smaller package of beer.)

Menu:
I honestly can't remember when we ate what. Perhaps Scott will remember for me. Anyway, at some point we had the following meals:
Leftover cheese pizza
Veggie soup and garlic cheddar biscuits
Hamburgers provided by my parents (we were visiting for my dad's birthday, naturally)
Stroganoff and peas
Spaghetti and meatballs
Chicken noodle soup
Pork roast with random leftover sides
Pork chops with random leftover sides

(WHERE is all this food coming from?)
