Today after doing day 3 of the Couch to 5k program (yay me!), I went to pick up a few things at the grocery store. I confess, I'm not the best grocery shopper in the world. I'm one of the few women who probably does better when she brings her husband with her. I just wander the aisles thinking up all the cool things that I could make. Unfortunately, I usually forget an item, or I don't have time, and I end up throwing away much more food than I'd like to admit. Being that I'm going to do the envelope system this month for groceries, I thought I'd actually carry a calculator through the store with me today just to see how I did, and to try and stay under the $40 cash that I had. And I bought all of the above for less than $33!
-Whole Wheat Bread
-Whole Wheat Tortillas
-Wheat Thins Wisconsin Cheddar
-A bag of baby spinach
-2 cans cream of Chicken soup
-Fresh Chicken Breasts
-Can of Fridge Biscuits
-2 Things of Strawberries
Tonight, I'm making Chicken and Dumplings for the Band, and then I'll use the veggies to make a side for the Pulled Pork I'm doing tomorrow, and then Enchiladas later this week--I'm pretty impressed with my results folks!
After running AND hitting up the grocery store, I was feeling ambitious and my plan was to portion out the crackers and cut up veggies and fruit tonight for easy access during the week. But instead, I fell asleep on the couch. Whoops.
On another note, yes, that's a vinyl tablecloth. Don't ask. I'm really not very happy about it.
