The wine was my impulse buy!

Today was grocery shopping day. I did pretty good sticking to my list if you don't count the banana chips, cheese, ice cream sandwiches, sushi and the wine. But that's okay I suppose.

We spent $183.22 at the store today. All organic. This food will last us for the next 2 weeks...mostly. I also SAVED $19.00 for coupons and buying things on sale!!!

I blogged before about Mrs F and her rotisserie chicken! I bought one today. A $6.99 rotisserie chicken that is. I cut the white meat off and put it in a container in the fridge for later use in chicken salad, for sandwich meat or just to eat with rice(which is cooking in the rice cooker as I type this.). I used the rest of the rotisserie chicken to make stock. I then used the stock to make chicken noodle soup. TA DA!!!! When I was cutting up the carrots and celery to make the soup I went ahead and cut up extra for veggie stick snacks. TA DA!

While I was at it I went ahead and washed all the spinach to throw in a bag for this weeks use.

I already made the bars last night with Lil O but they are almost gone already!! So, tomorrow I will have to make another batch for the kids snacks. I am also going to make two kinds of muffins to munch on for the week. Blueberry Muffins and Carrot Cake Muffins. YUMMY!!!!!

I am on a roll.

However, I was not on a roll when Superdad beat me at Super Scrabble earlier today!! I will get a rematch TONIGHT!!!!!

I leave you with an odd question and something to think about. ~giggle~ Don't get me Superdad!!!

Superdad: "Why does God make men wake up every morning saluting?" (Not his words but you get the idea.)

Supermom: "To teach you patience and that it's not ALL about YOU!"

All that shopping, cooking, and preparedness impresses me! I need to get more organized. Good luck staying on the roll!

I don't know if you know about this site, but since you like to purchase organic I thought I'd share.

(found you on the Sound off South blog list...I like following others in my general area)
