Brought bananas on sale for 33 cents a pound. That rounds out my fruit and vegetables for the week. I have $2.61 left from the original $29. Will save it in case I need something later on.
One thing I realized is that my dairy will not be what I want it to be this week. Not enough money to buy cheese, yogurt or sour cream and I do not drink milk. Hopefully, the vitamins and minerals will be there in other foods.
So, last night I ate part of the roasted chicken, pan-fried potatoes and a small salad. Water to drink.
Today, I had coffee and a homemade tortilla with peanut butter for breakfast; tuna salad and sliced tomatoes for lunch with water to drink; dinner will probably be the spaghetti sauce I made yesterday, with some whole wheat pasta and a small salad; water again.
No snacks today, so far, which is difficult since I am used to eating snacks. Am thinking that I will make some potato chips – bought a 10 pound bag of potatoes yesterday for 99 cents – to see if they can be used as snacks. I do have some cut up celery and carrots to last me the week in salads and snacks.
After shopping, I am feeling better about making it through the week. There will be enough food; it just may not be what I want to eat.
