Wow…its week 40 already! That means only 12 more official weeks for P:FB! <–that’s insane!
This is going to be a quickie check in, not only because I haven’t been keeping close track of everything but also because today marks my first day of classes!
Given the events of the past few weeks (moving, losing power, etc), my budget has been a bit up and down. The week I moved in…well I can’t even tell you how much I spent. I was constantly running to the closest store (which happened to be Shoppers…not the cheapest IMO) to grab lemon juice or flour or something else mid-cooking/baking that I believed I had…but didn’t. Try not to do this folks…its gets expensive and annoying!
I promise more food porn posts coming soon. And by food porn I mean mediocre pictures of outstanding, drool-worthy food that looks good despite the fact that my photography skills are far from good. <–not saying this to self-patronizing but rather to let you know that photography just isn’t a top priority of mine.
Now about that budget…
Week 39: $30.50 (savings ???)
Week 40: $69.90 (savings: >$30)
So if you are wondering what happened this week, its called stocking up on overpriced non-perishables so I can eat semi-healthy without access to a fridge. Then of course, I did have access to a fridge but not an affordable grocery store so…I paid the Giant prices (double entendre fully intended) Luckily, the beau paid for half of those since he was worried about me eating. And I have enough larabars + raw sprouted trail mix to last me for months. <–seriously.
Wegmans just recently debuted its Food You Feel Good About (FYFGA) gluten-free line. FYFGA products are made without artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. As part of the debut, they sent us
obsessed loyal customers coupons for some goodies. Since I don’t really need the products, I thought I would do the nice thing and share the love with you all!
Up for grabs…
Sugar Cookie Mix (only 70 cal/cookie)
Fusili corn pasta (only 2 ingredients: corn + water!)
Though I haven’t had either of these products, I have sampled and purchased many private-label products from Wegmans and have been impressed with them all. The sugar cookie mix also has a 5 Star rating on the Wegmans site. just sayin’. 😉
