Grocery trip

March 3rd, 2012 at 06:51 am

I stopped for groceries last night on the way home from work. It was snowing and I didn't know what might greet me in the morning.

I spent $20.05 on groceries and $10 on cat food; $2.50 on maxi pads.

For $20 I got: 3 lbs. ground beef, 8 oz. fresh sliced mushrooms, a box of granola, a green pepper, a dozen eggs, a Caesar salad bag (with dressing & toppings included). The cat food, mushrooms, granola and salad were all on sale. I thought the ground beef was, too, but it didn't show up that way on the receipt.

I made a cheeseburger last night and set aside another patty for today. The rest of the ground beef I cooked for later use. This morning I simmered about a half-pound with Rotel and Mexican seasonings for tacos later in the week. The rest I may freeze.

Yesterday at noon my only option for lunch was oatmeal, and I just didn't want that, so I went to the cafeteria and got a flank steak salad. It was $6.50, but I came up short -- I forgot how low I was on cash -- and they don't take credit cards. Oy. The cashier very nicely only charged me $6. I'll be sure and get the extra to her next week.

Today I'm heading to the body shop to get an estimate on my car repair. It's old damage -- I just decided to fix it after all, since I'll probably keep this car until it won't go anymore. It seems to be going and going, so I'll fix the dents and make it look nice again.
