Our new shopping/cooking regimen is working very well. Adam's becoming adept at cooking just the right amount -- no overeating and no leftovers. The other day at the little grocery, he spotted these fun potatoes. Lots of neat colors and and some so small they are bite-size!
The entire meal cost a total of $2.30 for all of us. I kid you not. It helps to buy items on sale, each day. It's time-consuming to go to the store that often (although the total time at the store is probably about the same as when we did one weekly, big run). But when you're rather poor, you have lots of time and not much money, so it works out perfectly! And we're still eating much better than most Americans. We're not rushing around town in the van, eating junk food in the back seat and not around the table together. I'm so glad!
Okay, here's the scene from the farmer's market, 7:30 AM. These are a few of Mr. Bob's faithful customers. Mr. Bob is the egg man -- he sells his own pastured eggs. The Pastured Egg Faithful are a very devoted group. Mr. Bob wasn't able to come to the market that morning, and they were all disappointed!
