Ah, it finally happened! I had enough meat stockpiled in the freezer for a whole week, so I didn't have to buy any!! Of course, I needed just about everything else. That's what eating fresh really means. I need soooo much produce each week. So what do we see here? Dog food, 4 dozen eggs, 2 cartons unsweetened almond milk, crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, parmesan, salsa, a pgk of cream cheese, broccoli slaw (and behind it carrot slaw), baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, zucchini and cucumbers, jalapinos, toothpaste, hubby's body wash, cleaning sponges, chili-garlic sauce, green onions, red onions, strawberries, kiwi, red peppers, mushrooms, butter, yogurt (and behind them, out of sight is 2 kinds of apples and avocadoes, a loaf of breaad of the teens (gasp!) and a peanut butter (double gasp! so they don't kill us in our sleep!) And in the baggies on the right; raw cashews, raw cane sugar, raisins, dark chocolate chips, cocoa and cinnamon.
So, what did this week of not buying meat cost me? Not including dog food: $113.02
And what am I cooking with this stuff??
