I dragged my teen out with me for a while today. I got a nice surprise that my grocery allotment was already available, so instead of just a few things, I was able to do some real shopping!
I bought a lot of junk, easter candy-chocolate bunnies and such, to put in easter baskets for a couple of the kids who don't get things like that. (They are in worse budget shape than we are) and I wanted them to have enough to share with siblings. And I got my healthy stuff.
I now have lettuse and tomatoes for sandwiches, and I even bought veggies and fruit! They had ambrosia apples reasonable priced, so I bought like 10 pounds. Even I will eat those in small quantities.
And I got everything to make easter dinner. I adjusted my devilled egg recipe to use fat free miracle whip, and my cole slaw recipe to use fat free miracle whip and sugar substitute. And all my cheeses are low fat! I bought rye and raisin breads for variety and 2 kinds of diet bread.
I did awesome!and I got my market spaces paid for! I'm doing tuesdays and saturdays starting in june. Now if I can just get motivated to get enough stuff premade...
