Mondays With Mavis…
Two weeks without doublers? What’s a girl like Mavis to do? Ha Ha Ha. I think I could get used to a schedule like this. Hmmm. I wonder if there will be any doublers this week? Have you heard anything yet? My scissors are feeling a little neglected. 😉
I stopped by my local produce stand and stocked up on fruit & veggies, plus made a few quick trips into Fred Meyer and Winco. Lately I haven’t been doing much grocery shopping because I am trying to empty my freezer to make room for this years expected garden harvest. Dinner time meals around my house are starting to get a little interesting.
For instance, I found a tube of frozen chorizo circa 2010. What the heck is it? Where did it come from? And how am I suppose to use it? Does anyone know?
I’m actually really starting to get excited about eating our way to the bottom of the freezer. Why? Because I know if I put a lot of time into my garden this spring and summer, it will pay off later in the year when my freezer is full of homegrown goodness and I only need to stock up on basic pantry items like milk, butter, rice and pasta and spices.
Wahoo! Are you planning on growing any of your food this summer?
Here is a re-cap of my two “big” shopping trips I made this week:
Total Spent This Week $27.86
Total Spent This Year $331.85
Total Spent This Year on Garden Seeds & Supplies $339.38
