This week's groceries-

Friday, December 27, 2013

I have salmon, chicken and venison in the freezer- I have tuna, onions, celery dressings and peanut butter in the pantry, eggs, cheeses and leftover roast beef from Wednesday. I need to get a few shrimp. To this I added:
1 Dole pineapple in juice (1.65)
1 Kikkoman soy sauce (4.59)
2 cans of Herdez Verde sauce (1.59 ea)
a box of Swanson broth (3.19)
a bag of Fresh Express cole slaw (2.49)
a bag of store brand frozen peas (1.76)
a bag of store brand frozen corn (1.76)
a box of Fresh Express Organic salad (4.49)
1 cauliflower (4.96)
.66 lb mushrooms (3.24)
1 iceberg (1.99)
3 colored peppers (11.96)
1 romaine (2.29)
a box of cherry tomatoes (5.99)
1 cucumber (2.49)
3 carrots (1.16)
1 sweet potato (2.05)
1 zucchini (.84)
with tax it's 63.08

I would have gotten the regular medium hot house tomatoes and no peppers had I been the one shopping but it is what it is.

With this I am making:
Dinners: Chicken tacos, veggie kabobs & shrimp kabobs (separate), fried rice (loads of veggies, eggs and a bit of chicken), peanut chicken lettuce wraps, fish & sweet potato (with salad) and Buffalo wings with a salad and celery sticks.
Lunches will be leftovers for the most part, but I will use some of the Buffalo chicken for a wrap, the roast will go on a couple of salads over the weekend and leftover kabobs will go on an Asian slaw. I'm going to make some vegetable soup as well so I have some hot, fast food in the event I can't cook for some reason.
Breakfast will be scrambled eggs with a sauteed vegetable, a tuna melt on sliced tomatoes (planned on cutting the little things in half and sticking under the broiler), and a frittata.

I should still have food leftover stuff that I can turn into something or have for breakfast. The fresh stuff was a bit higher this week than I'd wanted- again, if I were shopping, I'd have shopped for what was on sale.

Next week when the hub is home, I'll have to fill in with things like potatoes, pasta and rice to fill him up- if he went LC our bill would double. I'll also go for some ground beef, and chicken thighs for him.

This is going to be difficult!

    OMG, where do you shop? Don't tell me it's Whole Paychecks :)

    Learn how to make sauerkraut. That's what I'm doing. With that and grow some sprouts like kale and broccoli and mung. You don't need much more greens. Garlic and onions should be the foundation and they are cheap. Once you have your own kraut and mung sprout, you can cut back on the others. You'll have what I called the Four Horsemen (Garlic, Onions, Kraut, Mung Sprouts)

    I was thinking your prices are much the same as ours until I got to the three peppers - yikes! I get a pack of three at Trader Joe's for $3.99... (Making a mental note to add that to my gratitude list!)

    If you lived closer to me I'd beg you to cook for me too! It all sounds delicious!

    Lots of veggies, that's great. Maybe if you buy some more seasonal veggies the price can come down? I assume that peppers are not in season where you live and tomatoes probably not, either.
    Peas and corn are too high-sugar for me.
    You could try out some leafy greens like mustard greens, collard greens, kale, all available frozen, also leeks, mushrooms

    Sounds delish, but OUCH, some of your local prices are downright painful, especially the peppers. Whoosh!
