April is here, and that means baseball season is upon us. Here at Average Dude Food, we made our obligatory run to the store on Opening Day to get our “all-beef” franks, some baked beans, and boxes of Cracker Jack.
We even splurged a bit, going to the deli and getting a few fresh brats to compliment our not-so-fresh beef franks. Freshly-made Jalapeño Cheddar and Mango Habanero brats taste far better than the pink packaged sausages we usually subject ourselves to, although we highly recommend pacing yourself if you’d like your next 12 hours to be pleasant. Other than a few food purchases a few weeks later during our first in-person visit to the stadium this year, this was a pretty light month for us in regards to spending.
By preparing lunch and dinner on Sundays and having easy to prepare breakfast foods in the house, we rarely ordered food during the past 30 days. Having a well-stocked fridge filled with Average Dude recipes sure is easy on the wallet and on the stomach.
As we are big Minnesota Twins fans, I think it’s relevant to compare our food spending to something related to the team. For my fellow Twins supporters, the idea I’m about to present is unlikely to make you think happy thoughts, but it should keep your food spending to a minimum.
The plan? We are committed to keeping our monthly food spending under Byron Buxton’s batting average at the end of each month. Were we able to do it? Check out the stats below:
Well, 128 is lower than 147… HOORAY! WE DID IT!!!!!
Being a Twins fan is sad.
