This week we did WalMart grocery pick up and I have to say the convenience wins most every time.
Birds eye pepper stir fry vegetables – $1.96
We used these to put in some homemade hot pockets and on some homemade pizza, my fiancé was very happy with how they turned out.
For vegetables this week we have 2 sweet potatoes – $1.53, a head of iceberg lettuce – $.98, matchstix carrots – $1.57, baby cut carrots – $2.44, green beans -$.83, broccoli – $.78, 10 lbs of russet potatoes – $5.44, celery – $1.48, cauliflower – $2.77, 12 ears of corn – $2.40.
I intended to mix the iceberg lettuce, matchstix carrots and romaine lettuce to make some salads, but the romaine was weirdly out of stock.
I shucked the corn, broke it in half and froze it.
For fruits this week we bought a watermelon – $2.97, a cantelope – $1.75, 1 lb. of green grapes – $3.37, 1 lb. of red grapes – $1.92, 2 lbs. of strawberries – $3.84.
To make it through 2 weeks we bought 2 gallons of whole milk – $1.96, a gallon of chocolate milk – $.98, parkay sqeez butter – $2.08, country crock – $3.46, and 2 dozen eggs – $1.16.
The parkay was specially mentioned for a rib recipe Alex wants to try and if I can get him excited to contribute meal ideas and get him to cook dinner, I’m willing to spend a little extra to get what he’s asking.
I intend to make some breakfast burritos and maybe even homemade muffins for the freezer sometime soon so we purchased great value sausage – $2.98 (substituted for Jimmy Dean) and great value original bacon – $4.98.
In this last picture we have both instant and active yeast – $4.58 each, self rising corn meal – $1.68, pepperocini peppers – $1.38, great value onion soup & dip mix – $1.00, 2 packages of red hots – $1.96, 2 jars of prego pizza sauce – $3.16, and molasses – $3.24.
This was a rather large haul for us, but like I started previously, I’m hoping things will last us 2 weeks. I’m actually nearing the end of the first week as I write this and we still have more than enough left to last us until the end of next week.
