Week 6 Grocery Notes: Recently in our area I discovered a wonderful fruit and vegetable stand. Sometimes, the prices are dirt cheap and other times, they are considerably higher. It seems to be a hit or miss thing. This week I was able to score the fruits and veggies shown here for a total of $12. between Aldi’s and the local fruit and vegetable stand in town.
Sometimes, Items are so cheap at the store, it isn’t worth making your own, as you can see from the Cinnamon Raisin bagels I found at Aldis. I managed to find a great deal on thick pork chops at Sam’s club- and packaged those up in meal-size packages and froze for later use.

  1. We would probably enjoy having chickens but our city requires that we have to be 50 feet from a neighbors home. We live too close to our neighbors so that is out for us. But it does sound like it would be fun.
