**Dear Lord, it took me a long time to post this. It’s been that kind of… year.**
We’re in the first half of our first pay period of the year. Our new budget will be tight but I think we can do this. We’ve already maxed out our “household” money buying a lead test kit and a window insulation kit. Both purchases were much needed. We strongly suspect that the remaining woodwork in our house has lead paint and we would like to start pricing out how to have to removed. And we have some very drafty windows that needed attention.
As I mentioned before, our grocery budget is very tight. This month will be tighter due to a visit from Thomas’ mom for a few days and there will be a small crowd at our house for Adam’s birthday. My budget for the party food is $40.
This is what I’m thinking for Adam’s party, using up some things that I already have:
Lasagna Pinwheel Bites (estimate $7)
Caesar Salad (estimate $6)
Fruit Kabobs with Dip (estimate $15)
My mom is bringing a veggie tray and I’ll make the cake. Anyone know an easy cake recipe that would be appropriate for baby?
