Striving, thanks, we are enjoying them!
Glad to hear that the marathon cooking session has made meals a lot easier for you.
A certain somebody has to stay out of the grocery stores! I've spent almost all my Aug. grocery budget, and there are still 11 more days left in the month!
Friday's grocery trip at the Asian market, as I mentioned earlier = $35.80; bought snacks, baby bok choy, cauliflower, mangoes, bananas, etc.
Saturday's grocery trip at the other ethnic market = $16.54; bought pork @$1.99/lb, lettuce, red potatoes, green bell pepper, carrots, green beans, cucumber, pears, grapes, cherries, kiwi, and chocolate drink mix.
Today's grocery trip at the regular grocery store = $14.54; bought split chicken breasts @ $.79/lb; eggs @ $1.50/doz.; oil; banana chips; frozen fish (pollock), $2.49/lb; and 2 bagels @$.59
Total spent on groceries so far in Aug. = $76.49 + $35.80 + $16.54 + $14.54 = $143.37
Amt. left in the Aug. grocery budget: $147.93 - $143.37 = $4.56!!!
But it will be just fine. I have a freezer full of meat (and fish), a fridge full of veg. and fruit, and cabinets full of snacks! As far as I can tell, I won't be needing any more groceries this month. Just need to eat from what I have already bought.
And...STAY OUT OF THE GROCERY STORES!
By the way, this is the first time I've bought pollock, so, if anyone has good recipes, let me know.
