Cooking with Sam

My typical meal used to consist of going to Chipotle or I would eat super simple like an apple. We used to spend a crazy grocery bill and then have more spent on restaurants. In order to pay off our mortgage faster, however, we are trying to stick to a food budget of $200 a week. In contrast, in January my wife said we spent $1400 on groceries and $300 on dining out.

I am proud to say that for the month of February we spent $804 on groceries and didn’t go out to eat at all! Also, $4 of that was spent at Albertsons on Lottery tickets so technically we made our goal!

But a few weeks ago I had the urge to eat something amazing. The idea of filet mignon popped into my mind and I couldn’t shake it.
