$30 A Week for 52 Weeks

Week 23

Week 23
6/24/12

Food Co-op – Lots of good stuff!

3 large tomatoes
1 celery bunch
3 large onions
5 lbs. potatoes
1 extra potato, just hanging out
1 Romaine lettuce
33 oz. cherries
6 oz. blueberries
9 bananas
5 small mangoes
8 white nectarines
1 cantaloupe
Total 15.00
Fee 1.50

Wow, an amazing haul from the co-op!! I do have to point out that some of the items are not ripe: the bananas, mangoes, nectarines and tomatoes all need some time. In fact, last weeks bananas are still not ripe enough to eat. I literally have bananas coming out of my ears! Will definitely be freezeing some for smoothies and banana bread.

Potatoes are abundant – still have some from last week and now 5 pounds more. Potato Salad? Sounds good to me.

Market Shopping

Eggs 1.69
Ground beef 3.52
Half and half 2.39
Oats, bulk .58
Sugar 2.98
Raisin bran 3.59
Nutella 3.89
Total 18.64

Got a coconut water again in the middle of the week, 1.89 – have to add that to last week. Keeping hydrated in this weather and altitude is so important!

Cooking for the week? Hmmm, potatoes, salad, chili. I’ll keep you posted!
