This Week’s Receipt & Recap

We were fortunate enough to be invited to our friends’ apartment last night for Julia Child’s Potato and Leek Soup and some crusty bread and cheese. Thanks ladies! This meant that we didn’t go food shopping last night, so I went before work today. The Coop is a different beast early in the morning. It’s not full of people, all the produce is fresh from the morning delivery and there are no lines. A great shopping experience. We actually have about $60 to spend this week because of last week’s trek to our families. I think we had something like another $4 or so leftover too, but forget about it. This week, I spent $30.91. I didn’t want to blow the whole $60 and was still trying to stay completely under $30, but my plans hit a snag when I couldn’t find any tortillas for less than $3.38. Arg.

So, now we have $29.09 left. I really want to use it to buy staples since we’re just about out of sugar and various grains, but maybe it should just sit around for when we really need it. Or maybe I should throw a fondue party.

Anyways, here is this week’s receipt.
