On my way home today, I had to stop and buy our week’s groceries. I have been dying to go to Earth Fare, a local grocery store that carries lots of natural, organic, and local foods. There are several in the Southeast, but coming from Boston and then Togo, I had yet to try one. I had a great time looking around and picking out our groceries. It was super clean and very well-organized. I didn’t see a lot of local food, but I did notice they sell bison 😉 Maybe Greenlife Grocery is the way to go for local foods?! I really wanted local eggs and milk and was sad to find none. But compared to Greenlife, it did seem much more organized and grocery-cart friendly (big aisles!). I guess I’ll just have to keep going to both grocery stores to further reasearch the BEST 😉
So here are the majority of our week’s groceries:
I actually saved $12 today with coupons! I picked out a few on my own from the local paper but I also picked up a coupon book at the front of the store. I glanced through it and tore out a bunch to use. Plus they had tons of coupons around the store so I grabbed some of those as well. I love saving money!
So I have a chicken pot pie recipe planned for tonight’s dinner. But after the drive home, I needed a little nourishment to get through the afternoon. I used a $1 off coupon for this pizza:
And Nathan and I dug right in! It had plantains and mangoes on it…Just like Togo!
So lots of fun recipes to come this week. I bought two jars of crunchy peanut butter and am entering this contest to win some more. Maybe I can find a recipe for chocolate peanut butter cups?!
