First off, thanks to everyone who helped me get my food-brain straight (er) yesterday. I have a better idea what to do for meals this week (give or take) now.
So, yesterday was kinda busy (for me, anyway) with an appointment, and a freak-out, and the whole driving around town doing errands thing. Bad for eating, good for pricing stuff.
So I found low cost apple juice (though probably low-quality too, I don't care right now), apple sauce that probably fits my budget (didn't get either of them), and thought about the whole food thing.
Wandered into Save-a-lot for flour and oil, picked up a 3lb bag of rice and checked prices on loose apples while I was there. $5.11 and I shouldn't need any more of those three for at least a couple weeks (I hope). I'll update the spreadsheet-deally after I finish shopping.
One of my errands brought me to Target (somehow not as bad as Walmart, tho I'm not sure why...), and I resisted the call of the really cheap pasta sauce and over priced house brand swedish fish. Also did not bring home cheap spiral mac and cheese, pasta shapes, nutella, or chocolate.
Bad news is, I was running late on the way to my appointment, and bought a (grab bag-sized) bag of chips, which I'm not counting, and some soda. So I'm back on caffeine after almost two weeks. The first bottle tastes foul, I think I might try to stick to water again after this. It gets old and boring, but at least it doesn't throw off my tastebuds. Pleh
On the subject of other food yesterday? Not so much. Was going to do (admittedly lazy) bread rolls and red sauce, but after all my running around the idea of kitchen time was... less than inspiring. Overall not the best day for food. I'll try to make up for it today. The rolls sound good, and I have *got* to eat before I go shopping. Shopping hungry is like an auto-fail. I should hunt down my iPod, it seems to help.
