Week #32 Grocery Notes: This weeks total expense came to a whopping $54. I didn’t intend to overspend, but found some great deals on fruit, veggies and rather than taking the time to make our own yogurt, as we usually do, I picked up a couple of large containers of Vanilla yogurt for $2 each. Watermelons are DIRT cheap this week at only $2 each at various roadside stands. These are great for making sorbets or slushies mid-day for a refreshing, cooling drink.
I’m finding it increasingly more difficult to add photographs of various dishes in this heat! By the time we finally get out of work, get home and cleaned up, get dinner cooked and on the table, I just don’t have the time or desire to snap any photos. Bear with me folks, I’ve been spending these dog days of summer shingling roofs & running materials back and forth to various jobsites.

A few things I’d like to share: You’ll notice that most of the lunches this week are very light. Chances are we’ll end up skipping lunch altogether as we’re all working in triple digit heat this week. Usually on days like these we end up eating a fairly light breakfast, munch a piece of fruit mid-morning and by dinnertime, when the temperatures dip into the lower 90’s we’ll eat a larger meal.
