Using the Stockpile, Day 19: Calzones

You guys.  As soon as this month is over, I am buying the most calorie-dense, sugary coffee creamer the world has ever seen.  Ok, not really, but some type of coffee creamer.  Today, I am drinking it plain.  It isn't terrible, but it isn't my cup of tea... err, coffee.  :)  On that note, we've got half a gallon of milk left.  If we can make it until Tuesday, I can buy 2 more gallons for $6.  I don't think those will last us for the rest of the month, but it's worth a shot.  I didn't go to the store yesterday (Friday) as I usually do weekly with my father, so that saved some money.

At dinner, I was going to make fish, but decided instead on calzones.  I found some shredded cheese in the freezer, used some Ragu from the cupboard along with chopped olives, onions and tomatoes and some deli pepperoni from the cupboard.  I used this recipe for the dough. 

I was rushing to put these bad boys together and I didn't feel like doing the braiding, so they baked up, puffed out and steamed nicely.  Pretty tasty!

My husband is down to the nitty gritty of his peanut butter.  He's a total Jif guy.  He doesn't care for the all natural kind that I have in the cupboard, but he might have to have it if he wants peanut butter and crackers for his afternoon snack.

Total spent on food outside of stockpile:
Today:  $0
This Month:  $37.77
Goal:  Spend under $100 for January, but under $50 would be awesome!  I think I'm going to be past the $50 limit, but we'll see if I can do this anyways.  Maybe $75. :)
