Thanksgiving Challenge…

Yes on top of the B&C POTM Challenge I am taking on another!

Remember how last year I took on Kath’s Thanksgiving Challenge?

Well the wonderful EMILY of Eatventures is hosting it again this year! A month of minimal groceries. Head over to her site to join in here.

The “challenge” is to limit our food budget to $100 for the month of November.  Here are the rules that Hubby and I are following -

  1. Track our food purchases for 1 month, spending no more than $100
  2. Non-food grocery items (toilet paper, shampoo, etc) do not count
  3. Starting with whatever we happen to have in the fridge/pantry
  4. We are not factoring in free items either.

With the Holiday’s right around the corner, Hubby and I can save every last penny for gifts. I also love a good challenge ;) I saw that Meghann made a Google Doc, I thought that was a great idea so I created one too. You can check it out here!

When I got home today I was spoiled by the Hubby! I love random and fun gifts :)

A new Oatmeal bowl, perfect for the season!!! Oh how I miss my coffee.

Hubby also picked my up my favorite organic tortilla chips! These only have three ingredients, sea salt, corn, and sunflower oil…

….and he picked some cherry tomatoes from our garden, love these. They are so much sweeter then normal tomatoes, and perfect in everything!

What a sweet heart, thanks Hubby for the gifts!

What a great hubby!

Your new oatmeal bowl is adorable. I love bowls that look/are handmade instead of the mass produced. Makes eating out of them much more fun.

Cereal for dinner=damn good. Have fun at your class!

Bosco is so cute!! I love cherry tomatoes, they're pretty much my favorite. And I also love those corn chips--we always have them in the house.

Hope you're having a great day!
