Hello, friends! How do you like this pumpkin patch? Have you ever been to one? My sister and her friends go each year but it has been years (and I won't tell you how many but it's over 20) since I was at one for a hayride. Oh, how I love hayrides but it's well beyond me to climb up on that wagon these days.
It's the beginning of the month so you know I had my big food shopping trip. I took Joe with me. Even though he couldn't do a lot to help with his hand still in the splint, he was able to get me light things and reach things on shelves above my head. It's good to be married to a man taller than yourself.
So here's what I got:
Chocolate chip cookie dough, romaine lettuce and baby spinach.
Potato bread was on sale, eggs were on sale for 99 cents a dozen (so I got two!) and apple cider for Joe. My body doesn't like apple cider even though my mouth does.
Dish detergent for church, deodorant for us!, quart storage bags, napkins and paper bowls to feed the outside cats.
Organic bananas, cream cheese, bologna and ham lunchmeat, and bacon also on sale for $3.
Mushrooms, green beans, broccoli and sweet potatoes.
Frozen French fries, bagels, breaded flounder fillets, chicken tenders and chicken thighs.
Tortellini, tortilla chips, salsa and gallon storage bags.
The ever present cat food (we also got dry food but Joe had put it away before I got a chance to take a picture), and lactose free cheese. I use this cheese for everything from sauce to grilled cheese sandwiches. It melts well and you really can't tell the difference from regular American cheese.
And finally Yukon Gold potatoes. All of the potatoes were on sale. Even though these were $1 more, we both like them and haven't had them in awhile.
That's it for this week. And I was $36 under budget this time. Yes!
See you tomorrow. Have a good day!
