We had a busy night last night so I am not blogging until this morning.
Per my normal routine, I slept until 4:30 pm. Of course I still felt tired when I woke up. I HATE that.
But I got going making dinner because I knew that we wanted to go grocery shopping later.
Dinner was mmm…mmm…good–Vegetarian Shepard’s Pie (basically a vegetarian burger, cut up and cooked with onions, then topped with corn and mashed potatoes!).
Then after dinner Kimm and I took Izzy for a longer walk for our last cool day before another warm stretch. We walked for about 40 minutes (2 miles). Izzy was TIRED at the end 🙂
Then we hit out Price Rite and Stop and Shop. Usually we only go to Stop and Shop but we wanted to stock up on a lot of produce and I knew we’d get a better deal at Price Rite…and boy did we…
Check it out…
Red delicious apples–99 cents/lb (usually $1.69/lb at S/S)
Peaches–89 cents/lb (at least over $2/lb at S/S)
Pint of blueberries–$1.99 ($2.99 at S/S)
Green and red peppers–$1.29/lb (over $2/lb at S/S)
Limes–6/$1 (2/$1 at S/S)
Zucchini–79 cents/lb ($1.29/lb at S/S)
Grapes–$1.29/lb ($2.99/lb at S/S)
Tomatoes–99 cents/lb (over $2/lb at S/S)
Bananas–49 cents/lb (69 cents/lb at S/S)
Kiwi–5/$1 (3/$1 at S/S)
….and more!!! You get the drift.
We got lots of fresh fruit and veggies as well as a few other things for only $40. That made my night.
Then we stopped at Stop and Shop and got the rest of the stuff we needed–another $80 spent.
One good thing was that I was able to get cherries at S/S for only $1.99/lb!! Me happy. Love cherries.
Half of our grocery budget is close to being gone. It will be a challenge to get through this month as our goal is to up our fruit/veggie intake. But we can do it!!!
The rest of the night was spent watching the last of Season Five of Weeds. Wow, what a season finale! It was GOOD.
