This week we purchased the following: Cauliflower, lettuce, green peppers, carrots, celery, bleu cheese, sour cream, cucumbers, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli, pineapple, fresh mushrooms, half & half, cream cheese, grapefruit, and bananas

Although the prices of chicken are super cheap this week at just $1.49lb for boneless breast, the pork chops and chicken listed in this weeks menu were purchased in bulk and vacuum sealed this past fall when they were on sale during a meat-restocking week.

From our Backyard: Fresh Eggs

From our Windowsill: Fresh Cilantro, Fresh Scallions, Fresh Basil

Total spent this week on groceries: $49.17

Sunday, Jan 13th:Its game day here, the playoffs are in full swing, which means munchies rather than big meals.Tonight’s menu item is from a homemade “meal kit” that we previously froze when shrimp was readily available.

Various Snacks:

  • French Onion Dip & Chips (or cut veggies)
  • Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Veggie Sticks with Homemade Bleu Cheese Dip
  • Salads with various toppings – I premake several bowls at the beginning of the week and add small containers of nuts (walnut, pecan, cashew pieces, sunflower seeds), dried fruits (cranberries, bits of dried apple, raisins) to sprinkle on top just prior to serving. It’s only about a tablespoon or two, but adds crunch and different flavors. We top these with homemade dressings.
  • Grapefruit
  • Bananas, possibly banana pudding
