Yesterday I bought 16.50 dollars worth of groceries- two oranges, three apples, celery, three can of kidney beans, three cans of beets, three cans of tuna fish, 12 english muffins, 1 very large bag of frozen corn and one very large bag of frozen brocolli.
This brings me to a spent amount of 58.50 for two weeks. With the cheese and the sour cream that Mary donated to me, I have right now more than enough food to last me through the end of this week. Probably through the end of the month, actually.
Basically my meals look like this:
Breakfast: cereal or cream of wheat, with milk and fruit.
Lunch: Tuna fish or peanut butter and banana, fruit.
Dinner: Spaghetti or lentils and rice. If it's spaghetti, it has sauce, some cheese, corn and brocolli mixed in. If it's lentils and rice, I might add canned tomatoes, brocolli, cheese or sour cream.
For snacks, I pretty much eat english muffins or celery with peanut butter.
I miss coffee, juice, and salad. I miss eating out, but not as much as I thought that I would. I do really look forward to not having the ability and freedom to just eat whenever I want, wherever I want. So much planning involved!
Like Cait, I'm enjoying the discipline of this, and also hating the redundancy of food (so many different forms of butter) in our kitchen.
