Hmm. Could’ve sworn that cheese was on sale for 6.99. It took me a while to decide to buy it, because of the price. I love all the produce I got this week – I am so looking forward to the mango and the avocado is just perfect! I just ate a kale salad with tomato, avocado, little cheese tossed with rice vinegar and a little veg oil.

Yesterday, I made a huge batch of chili and froze some. I took a look at my freezer situation while I was in there and realized I have lunches for about 2 weeks, with all the soup I’ve frozen and some beef made in the crockpot just over a month ago. And some beans that need to be eaten soon –Stocked! That’s a good feeling.

Got some carrot muffins in the oven – to satisfy my sweet tooth and a couple breakfasts, maybe with a hard-boiled egg. Smells good in here!

My gardening skills are pretty lousy, so tomorrow I’m looking into the local CSA. I am determined to get something out of it, charm and character, is my hope, but probably not much in the way of freezing and canning. I was so looking forward to my garden curbing some of my food budget — I’ll just have to see.

The chocolate is gone…that was to be expected.
