Buying UpdatesPosted: August 13, 2009
My fruitstand guy had a helluva deal today, 6 plums for $1. They’re super ripe, so I think I’m going to make Orangette’s Plum Clafoutis. Unfortunately, he ran out of the 8 bananas for a $1!! That would have made some fine banana bread!
I also bought some tofu in Chinatown for $.50 from my tofu lady (located on Grand Street, between Bowery & Elizabeth). I love her. I didn’t want a ton of tofu, even though it’s only $1.50, because I know it wouldn’t last all up into the weekend – we’ve got plans tomorrow night. I managed to get her to only give me a block, but it took some haggling! The fresh noodles also looked great, but I find you need to use and eat them up right away.
$1.50 spent + $22.12 = $23.62 TOTAL
Made the spelt berries last night – pic to come later!
