The cow that we normally get out milk from has adopted a calf, whose mother rejected him/her (I don’t know much about the calf!). So, the calf is getting most of the milk, the farmer’s family is getting the rest, and our milk came from the grocery store this week.
I spent $38.13 at Aldi and $47.45 at Weis. Unfortunately on that shopping day, I left my grocery lists at home. Surprisingly enough, I remembered almost everything on my list. Somehow, though, I completely forgot to get mozzarella cheese. I don’t know how that happened because I use it every single Friday to make pizza.
So, I made a trek to the local grocery store and bought a pound of mozzarella, 2 pounds of peaches, and a 1.75 quart package of vanilla ice cream (to make root beer floats!) for $7.20.
That makes for a $92.78 total. Yay! That’s under my $100 budget even though I stocked up on chicken breasts, which were on sale for $1.69/lb.
Here’s my produce (except for the watermelon, which inexplicably ended up in the non-produce picture again!).
The watermelon and everything else.
Breakfast: fruit, toast, bagels, and cereal
Lunch: yogurt smoothies, fruit, sandwiches, leftovers, raw carrots, cucumbers and tomatoes
