Week 3 Shopping

Today was shopping day again, and none too soon. My fridge and cupboards were almost empty. As I had to go to the market and the health food shop, and I feared my Spazmobile might run out of energy before I got back home, the hubby agreed to drive me to the market and the shop. Thankfully I managed all the walking involved without being in too much pain.

The market was great! There were several large fruit and vegs stalls, so I was spoilt for choice.

I bought a cauliflower, leeks, snaps, pak choi, mushrooms, aubergines, red and green peppers, apples, bananas and grapes.

At the cheese stall I bought a nice piece of organic cheese.

Next we went to the health food shop, where I bought onions, milk, butter, eggs, rice crackers, peanut butter and chocolate spread. All of this organic, of course.

Since cars are way faster than my Spazmobile, this shopping trip took me just a little over one hour. And I spent the grand sum of… €35.15. Now we are talking!

Even though I’ll still have to make a short trip to the farmers shop to (hopefully) get me a bottle of olive oil and dried or (preferably) fresh chives, I doubt that I’ll spend more than €50.00 on groceries this week.

After the shopping trip I spent all afternoon in the kitchen, cleaning and cutting my veggies. I’ve now got pak choi, leek, and oven roasted aubergines and peppers in my freezer, and home made baba ganoush in my fridge. As I was bone tired after a supper of cauliflower and mashed potatoes, I left the mushrooms in the fridge for now. Tomorrow is another day.
