Paleo on $100 a month day 25 - Splurge!!!!!!

This week, I have been pretty happy with my food choices, always managing to hit a sale or two at just the right time.   Due to all the frugality, I was able to save up enough in the kitty in case something interesting came along.

Yes, yes it did!  I found a huge package of scallops and mushrooms, and I also picked up another package of Kerry Gold butter.  (Sorry to break it to you, Steve Cooksey, but I got the same slab for half the price that you did!!!)

Breakfast:  eggs, turkey sausage, fennel, tea from trader Olga.

Lunch:  coffee and turkey sausage from trader Ingrid, blueberries, beet juice, vegetable broth, tangerines from trader Humberto, scallops cooked with mushrooms and butter, then more butter.

Dinner:  Leeks, fennel, feta cheese from trader Felix, greens cooked in beef fat, scallops and mushrooms cooked in butter, then even more butter.

Evening snack:  almonds from trader Dean.  (And how about that full moon?)

There is only $14.69 left in the kitty, but there are only 5 more days left on the challenge and I still have beef in the freezer.


  1. lol -- i could probably survive the apocalypse on what's in my freezer....

  2. You can't go wrong with a menu that includes scallops, mushrooms and butter - and never be frightened to use butter. Can't stand the chemical mix of margarines and spreads. They just DO NOT appear in the house EVER !

    All the best Jan

  3. If there is an apocalypse, you'd better have it during winter. I wouldn't want to see it all go to waste when the power is out.
