August 28 grocery shop

Today’s grocery shop actually took place over a couple of days.

Shop N Save, 8/26:


Food Fantasies: (organic cream, milk, eggs)


Aldi: (non-organic mozzarella, yogurt, pumpkin spice creamer, lunch meat, pepperoni, butter)



Saturday: lovely potluck dinner for Mom’s 80th birthday. We brought Greek Salad and Lemon Jello Cake. SIL Sue brought marinated flank steak, summer squash casserole, fresh green bean and a couple of bottles of really good wine. Younger brother and SIL to be (as of 10/15/11) cleaned the house and put out appetizers: garlic humus and crackers, crudities and dip, they also brought some yummy mediterranean liquor–it tasted like a very sophisticated version of NyQuil. A dear friend of mom brought some homemade toffee and caramels. Mom shared the toffee, but would not share the caramels. 🙂 The evening would have been perfect if I had not left my purse behind. Figured it out when we were 30 minutes away, returned to get it and got home just barely before midnight.

Sunday: Turkey sausages, summer squash casserole, sliced Kiwi.

Monday: Cheese Ravioli, Orange Sunshine (or Orange glop as my kids call it–“sunshine” refers to the flavor, “glop” refers to the texture.)

Tuesday: sautéed Tilapia in garlic and lemon juice, buttermilk biscuits, steamed mixed vegetables.

Wednesday: Just me–leftovers.

Thursday: Homemade Pepperoni Pizza.

Be sure and watch this site September 11-17th. We are following the San Francisco Food Pantry Challenge of living on less that the food stamp allowance of $4.72/day per person or $132.16 for the week for all four of us. Our blog will be linked to their website, and we will post daily photos of what we have spent and what we have cooked and are eating.

Should be great fun. Please follow along.
