Groceries, avocado, wine
I did a major grocery shop today and managed to spend just $45! Including…
Most of the above is Josh’s, save the Larabars and huge can of pumpkin :)
I love buying fresh veggies as opposed to frozen. They just have so much more flavor and now that I re-discovered my steamer, I look forward to making them this week!
I went to three stores today: Meijer, Kroger and ValuMarket, after I studied their ads online to see who had what on sale. Josh remarked that soon we won’t have to have as tight of a budget (his car is almost paid off), but I said that would not change my “style” of shopping.
I still plan to be on a budget and shop for the best stuff for the best price, I just may be able to splurge on a high priced item every now and then ;-)
For dinner tonight, I made another strange use of an avocado :)
I cooked up a serving of coucous and stirred in some green onions (chopped) and a slice avocado, then topped it all with salsa. It looked good, sounded weird, but tasted amazing.
I had my dinner with some vino!
I got this bottle at Meijer for $4 and I had never heard of the brand before so I couldn’t wait to try it!
The color was a very dark red and it tasted a lot like Shiraz to me. Pretty light and crisp for a red. But I’m no wine expert ;-) I pretty much drink it all!
You may have noticed my blogging has been sort of random lately.
I decided that for now, I’m just going to write about the “new” stuff in my day instead of making this a really boring food journal. So sorry if you really wanted to know what I had for lunch today, ha ha.
Luckily, I’m constantly trying new foods, combinations or recipes so it should be easy to keep it going for a while. We’ll just see where it goes.
I’m sorry to see this beautiful weekend come to an end but it’s time to get back to the normal routine and I’ve got to plan out a really awesome strength routine for tomorrow!
Good night everyone :)
