This week my grocery shopping was accomplished at three different places: the OSU-OKC Farmer’s Market, Whole Foods, and Target. I like to get all that we can at the farmer’s market, especially meat, and then fill in the gaps at Whole Foods. Sometimes Whole Foods isn’t the best place to buy household items, so Target gets thrown into the loop too. This week, I went to Target to buy some household items, and stocked up on canned foods and spices.
First Stop: Farmer’s Market
Decorative pumpkin and gourd, onions, sweet potatoes, jar of honey, ground beef, ground pork, beef stew meat, chicken tenders, one whole chicken, beef jerky, zucchini, bell pepper, poblano pepper, spaghetti squash, apples.
Total – $100.00
(Stocked up on meat that should last us several weeks)
Second Stop: Target
Total – $45.00
Third Stop: Whole Foods
Milk, coconut milk, dark chocolate, salmon, Kombucha, bacon, sausage links, cabbage, oranges, lemons, garlic bulb, pears, spinach, plantain, guacamole, cilantro, avocados, mushrooms, asparagus, celery, green onions, bananas.
Total – $90.00
Total for all three stores – $235. Whew, big spending week. With all the extra canned items, and extra meat bought this week, the upcoming weeks should be pretty cheap. I’d rather buy a bigger quantity and have items stocked up a little at home, to make preparing dinners easier.
On the Menu
Breakfast – Apricot Power Bars, green smoothies, boiled eggs, pumpkin smoothie
Lunch – leftovers, sausage and veggies
Dinner – Chicken, Bacon and Avocado Chopped Salad, Mediterranean Burgers, Ginger Garlic Salmon with Cabbage Salad, Spaghetti Squash Bolognese, Buffalo Chicken Tenders
Stay tuned to see how this menu plays out!
