Happy Presidents’ Day! Hope that like me, you’re one of the lucky ones enjoying the day off.
I have decided to tackle our grocery budget. I haven’t decided how to do it most efficiently. It might start out with a spreadsheet. It’ll take some time before I figure out what works for us. Right now, we buy grains and and other items that last awhile in bulk, and then we make weekly trips to pick up our fruits, vegetables, and anything else we want to have fresh. In addition to that spreadsheet, I’ll post my progress up here too.
This weekend, we braved the rain and hit up the farmers’ market.
Large brown eggs (16)
Cara Cara oranges (2)
Blood oranges (3)
Oranges for juicing (10-lb)
Yellow onions (4)
Carrots (a bunch)
Total Spent: $12.75
The onions and carrots are for a recipe I’m hoping to try this evening, but we didn’t pick up anything else since we’re not planning on cooking much this week. Our bags were a bit citrus-heavy since it’s the season!
Blood (Moro) oranges and Cara Cara oranges! It was our first time buying either of these, but it certainly won’t be the last. The pomelo that we picked up became part of breakfast this morning. This is only HALF of the pomelo:
The main reason we shop at the farmers’ market – the farm fresh eggs! We opted for the large browns this time, which RV promptly used to make this:
Fried eggs over fried oysters over an English muffin. Look at the amount of egg white on these! Poach is my favorite way of having eggs, but fried comes in a very close second.
What’s your favorite way to have your eggs?
