Update on Spending & WindfallPosted: September 22, 2009
Monday night I bought 4 challah rolls at Jack’s for $1; from Key Foods, I got a can of broadbeans for $1.89, can of coconut milk for $1.50 and at the corner bodega/grocery store, I got a pound of string beans for $1. I also got 4 apples from the farmer’s market for $2. Total: $7.49
Today, we got lucky. My boss brought in some of his harvest from his upstate garden. We got cukes, a few baby eggplants, brocollini and some tomatoes. Our friends were once again out of town and asked us to pick up their CSA and we got:
- 1 lb. Fingerling Potatoes
- 2 eggplants
- 1 Head Boston Lettuce
- 1/2 lb Beans
- 1/4 Red Watermelon
- 2 peppers
- 1 lb Cherry Tomatoes
With all of the tomatoes we got, I am thinking we need to make some more tomato jam. I am psyched about the watermelon and the peppers.
Rest assured that we will be spending our entire $30/Week budget soon enough. Fall is coming and with that comes baking bread and veggie stews. My favorites!
