Went shopping again.  Almost the end of day 1 only, and we have almost spent our limit 🙂  Also found out just now that Aidan doesn’t actually know how to open a can.  Where have I gone wrong?  Learning all kinds of things in this hunger challenge.

  • 2 lbs beef for stew – 8.10 (but couldn’t buy the super lean beef)
  • 2 turnips – 1.22 (I had to ask what they looked like)
  • 5 lbs potatoes – 2.99
  • 1 onion – .58
  • 1 pint half n half – 1.69

    Making Baked Potato Soup

  • 2 cans chicken broth – 1.98
  • small portion of bacon – 1.99
  • flour – 2.49

Total is $21.04.  Kids also are packing lunches, peanut butter and banana sandwhiches, so we can save enough money to make baked pears when gramma comes over on Wednesday!  Yum, and will share the recipe of course!

2.09 lbs bosc pears – 3.11
