Paleo on $100 a month day 7 - More tater tots

Today was a beautiful day so I spent quite a bit of time in the garden.  While cleaning up and getting ready for squash planting, I came across some potato plants that were damaged in the frost.  I pulled one up and found that there were several potatoes there, along with a dozen mini potatoes about the size of peanut M&M's.  I replanted the tiniest tubers, but took out a handful of the others.

I made another batch of bean soup for this week.

Yesterday's egg purchase didn't happen, since the store was out of eggs.  I found a sale on hamburgers, for only $2.99 a pound.  One burger set me back $1.47 along with the bag credit.  I also bought two packages of liverwurst for a dollar each.  I did not purchase any additional items today, so I have $6.87 in the kitty.

Here's the food fare for the weekend: 
Saturday lunch:  hamburger with pickles from trader Felix, a huge plate of lettuce and some strawberries.
Saturday dinner:  went out to eat (this is in the entertainment budget)
Sunday breakfast:  Jerusalem artichokes from trader Tanya, with ham and parsley.  I had some leftover coffee from trader Pablo, beet juice mixed with lime from trader Rebekah, and a mug of bone broth.
Sunday lunch:  potluck
Sunday dinner:  liverwurst, lettuce, leftover lamb, strawberries, lemon balm tea with lemon, butter


  1. Sounds like good food. I need to make myself some bone broth. Got any good recipes?

    Keep on keepin' on!


  2. I didn't really use a recipe, just put the bones in the crock pot with water and cooked them for a day on very low or warm. I took a couple of cups during the day, and then added more water. Near the end I added some veggies scraps, mostly fennel. I had cooked the ribs in some vinegar, so that made it slightly acidic.
