Yesterday Superdad took me to Earth Fare for my shopping. Which was totally awesome because he took the babies with him and I had my own cart!!! Ahh, it is the little things in life.
I spent $195.34 for TWO weeks of groceries. All organic.
Dairy ~ 25.13
Fresh Fruit & Veggies ~ 36.34
Meat ~ 38.52
Random Groceries ~ 69.71 It was a bit more than usual because I was refurbishing things like ketchup and salad dressing. To name a few.
IMPULSE ~ Yes, we had some this trip. 27.14 WORTH! Cookies (mine, on sale), juice, sushi, breakfast burrito and yellow squash (SALE).
I SAVED $21.59 buying things on SALE and using COUPONS!!! WOOHOO!!! Seriously, if you want to eat organic you can do this also! It takes some leg work but well worth it. I was tickled to save 21.59! That's less than 100.00 a week for all organic for a family of 6!! Awesome work if I do say so myself.
Mrs F really inspired me to DO better! Thank you Mrs F!
I came home and cut of the beautiful organic strawberries to use this week. Washed my spinach to use for salads this week. Then I made some chicken and wild rice soup for lunch this week.
I felt pretty crummy after all of the above so I grabbed up Baby M and took a nap. After taking my meds of course.
Easter is all set. Everyone chipping in is really making it a true family gathering!
Me ~ Pineapple Casserole, Sweet Potatoes w/Pecans and Sweet Tea.
My Mamaw ~ She is buying a Heavenly Ham for the occasion, making deviled eggs and rolls.
My Great Aunt ~ Corn and peas.
My Stepmom ~ Potato Salad and slaw.
YUMMY!!!! I am still working out the details for having 12 people at my dining room table. I am guessing we are going to have to set the kids up at a "kiddie" table so the adults can all be at the table.
Instead of wasting eggs this year by dying them I am going to start a new tradition with my babies. This is a tradition my mamaw had with me at Easter. We are going to make special Easter cupcakes. ~ ahhh, memories ~
You know where you dye the coconut green to be grass? Add jellybeans as eggs. Make a basket handle with pipe cleaner. Tie a pretty ribbon on the handle. Pretty Easter cupcakes.
I've invited a friend over to help with the festivities! Should be fun!!!
The hard part will be NOT EATING the cupcakes. They are for Sunday after all! LOL
Of course I'll post pictures. I always do.
