So I hit up a few stores this week. Kroger twice.
First time on Monday for our “regular shopping”…we were all out of juice, bananas, milk…you know, the essentials!
Second time to rock the toothpaste and $4 P&G sale. And rock it, I did!
I also bopped into Whole Foods while we were in the neighborhood in Cincinnati for an appointment. I wanted to get some more quinoa, and also got some sucanat from the bulk bins as well. While I REALLY wanted to go ballistic and blow my grocery budget out of the water, I restrained myself, mustered up some self-control and walked out of there only spending $5.76!
No farmer’s market trip for me this week. The fridge is full of all sorts of fabulous produce, peppers, tomatoes, squash…from last week’s trip and from our own garden.
(I’m thinking BLT sandwiches for lunch everyday for the next 2 months. I really don’t think I’d get sick of them.)
(I love them like I love chocolate, rosemary and garlic.)
