This Sparked Me!

The best thing to do is buy in season...

This is what $40 got me at Food Lion. It enough food for my and my hubby for 1 week.

I eat leftovers and the fresh food for my breakfast and lunch.

Re the chicken... We eat what we want and the rest is used to make chicken stock or chicken soup depending on how much is left. I will buy a whole chicken and cut it in pieces myself.. so 3 chickens yield 3 meals of 1 breast each, 2 meals of 2 thighs each (4 for hubby), and one meal of baked "wings"...

1 pint blueberries ($2)
1 quart strawberries ($2)
6 peaches ($2)
3 heads romaine lettuce ($3)
2 lbs carrots ($2)
small bunch tomatoes ($2)
1 lb mushrooms ($3)
3 bags frozen veggies ($3)
5 lb potatoes ($3)
2 boxes of rice ($2)
4 whole chickens ($16)
$40 = 1 week, 2 people
