Stopped in at Dollar Tree for the following: ginger snaps, a back brush for the shower, caramels, trail mix to keep at work (I refuse to use the vending machines so I keep a stash at work), more 10 ct bonus boxes of oatmeal packets. Additional items (not pictured): 1 bottle Pepsi, 2 each B Crocker au gratin and cheesy scalloped potato mixes (bonus 6 serving sizes), 2 20 oz bafs faz tater tots and 2 24 oz fzn hash browns, Spent $21.05.
From the butcher's: 1/2 lb Boar's Head deli turkey breast, grnd beef
georgeous, apple stuffed pork chops (Sunday supper this week)
huge short ribs (Mon supper). The quality I've been buying makes e very happy.
Aldi's for some topping up and I grabbed these microwave safe, lidded bowls w/ handles for toting l/o to work. One for me, one for DD. I've been tossing quite a bit of worn out tubs that I had been using for this purpose. Like that these are deemed "safe."
A real treat for Sunday: fresh, homemade style donuts from a new, family run donut shop in town. Pricey, but the quality surpasses even Dunkin Donuts.
