Food Stamp Challenge Update Six

We are coming to the end of the Food Stamp Challenge and Mrs. Roy has to admit it's been more difficult than I thought.  We are down to $5 to get us through Wednesday evening.  We have enough stock to  get us through but I have a pretty extensive grocery list, a lot of it staples like olive oil and Goya and milk and bread.  Mr. Roy drank the last of the milk last night so most of our remaining $5 will go toward a gallon of milk today. 

We made spaghetti sauce last night using some italian sausage we knew we didn't really like (Mrs. Roy had bought two packages on sale and we cooked the other package with some cabbage and onion but didn't really care for it).  It was much better in the sauce.  Without the Food Stamp Challenge, it might have languished in the freezer so thank you, Katy. 

Life is good.


  1. I worked this evening and didn't have dinner - so your spaghetti sounds great and the cabbage, onions, and italian sausage sound pretty darn good too!

  2. We are spoiled - I can usually get a gallon of milk somewhere for under $2. Thankfully, because we go through about 5 gallons a week.
