Week 2 of May 9 - 16 Prices

Monday, May 13, 2013

I didn't do as well this week. The food is fine, but it averaged almost 50 cents a day more than last week! I'm not sure why. Part of it is because I was adding strawberries (99 cents a pound) and tomatoes (also 99 cents a pound) where it seemed reasonable. But that only accounts for about 20 cents or so of the difference. I'll have to be more careful next week. I'm also trying to make a point to finish things up, since I'm not carrying anything over to the next month. That should help at the end of the month.

I averaged 1763 calories per day, 136 grams of fat, 87 grams of protein, 51 grams of total carbs, 17 grams of fiber, and 34 net carbs per day.

  Maybe because it's sticky and you just dump everything in the crockpot? I don't know! That's what it's called on the recipe I copied.

    Why is it "dump sticky chicken"?
