|If only I inherited my mothers bread slicing skills.|
My husband says that I do not have to count the things he bought since he didn't make this goal. :) So we also got grapes, strawberries, peanut butter, cheese and eggs. We could have done without the strawberries but I wanted to grab them while they still looked good. I felt like I had failed a little bit with this shopping trip but I had to remind myself that this wasn't a challenge I had prepared for and this is to give me an idea of the things we need the most.
Oh and I stopped by a local stand yesterday to get tomatoes and a big cantaloupe $6
I am enjoying this challenge but still have that nagging part of me that is worried about what new and delicious tasting meal I am going to make in the weeks to come. I blame my husband- I just want to please him- okay I blame my southern upbringing. Either way I need to learn to use what I have and not plan such elaborate things constantly. I am excited for the changes to come.
I hope to make it till next Saturday before I buy anything else. It may be difficult since we have no lettuce or fresh spinach but I would like to try my hardest to eat the other vegs we have and buy from the farmers market on Saturday.
