Shopping Saturday

Went shopping last night, not this morning and spent...

Are you ready?

It might be scary...

$169.94 on food.


I did not go for two weeks, so maybe it's not so bad. I didn't buy any cold cuts (I know they're a rip off, but Chris likes sandwiches). The most expensive thing was a 5 pound bag of frozen meatballs for $8. Those will last us awhile, and with Lent coming, we have to plot out our meat meals even more, since we go meatless on Wednesdays and Fridays. I did buy chicken, since it was a good deal and shoved it in our big freezer.

I'm making an Asian coconut cabbage soup later on; recipe is from Rae at There is No Wealth But Life. I had so much cabbage leftover from making minestrone soup two weeks ago, this is the perfect way to use it up. Here's the recipe: 

It's meatless. Chris is getting a little curious about why I'm making meatless food. HELLO, it's cheaper. Usually.  I'm playing dumb and telling him "getting ready for Lent."

I'll report back on how it is. It looks delicious.

  1. I don't think $169 is that much. I can easily spend $225 at the grocery store on a weekly basis... there just doesn't seem to be a way around it. Especially with the little guy eating everything in sight these days and making sure that I'm getting all the important stuff organic. And! This doesn't even include milk anymore b/c we've started getting that delivered every week.


Speak up!
