I had a quick errand down town, to drop of expired RXs at the police station for safe disposal. Was an opportunity to view some of the fairly new facility, meet a few more of the city officers. I have met a few at the farmer's market, held not far away. Today was the last day of the farmer's market this year. I wish that they had more venders, but 2 of them offer great produce, there is a nice selection, if one arrives early. I plan on returning next year. Since I continue to also buy produce directly from farmer friends, I didn't need to frequent the city's farmer's market every week. Since I was close by, I swung over to Price Rite. I needed some ingredients for supper as well as the upcoming week, and wanted to take advantage of a great deal they have. I bought: 1 mayo, 1 pkg gallon storage bags, 4 cans evap milk, Jewish Rie, New England hot dog buns, Kaiser rolls, grapes, Bosc pears, 2 cukes, celery, scallions, FL navels, milk, yogurt, 2 blocks Colby-Jack, buttermilk, sandwich buns. I needed to spend over $25 in order to get this:
a frozen turkey at 58/lb. Switching menus around, I will be roasting this tomorrow. Effective Monday, I will be attending classes 4 nights a week, the crunch time is on for a few weeks, getting stuff done ahead is a win-win, as would be having stock at the ready, meat for sandwiches. I spent $45.31.
