Besides the turkey that I purchased for Thanksgiving, I bought a few other items that we needed.
Almost every time I go grocery shopping, I pick up a pound of butter. In past years, I have always purchased 30-35 pounds of butter to last us a year or so at a great sale price at Aldi. I am not counting on that happening this year and I am getting low on it. The butter was $ 3.79. The ones I purchased in November of 2021 I think were $ 1.97? So butter has really gone up.
I always like to have fresh mushrooms in the house because we usually have steak or hamburgers once a week. These were $ 1.29.
My last purchase was 7 blocks of different cheeses. I had run out of them. We shred the mozzarella for our homemade pizza. I have the grater attachment for my Kitchen Aid mixer and it does a beautiful job. The cheddar we slice for snacks. The others we either slice or shred depending on what recipe we are using them for. They were all $ 1.99 each which is the cheapest price in my area.
So I spent $ 45.98 including the cost of the turkey at $ 26.97. These will be my only food purchases this week.
To save on gasoline, I also stopped at the drugstore for a prescription. We are staying at home most of the time and getting a lot more done here.
We started our day off today by making homemade “egg McMuffins”. Ours taste much better, have more bacon and egg and cost less than 1/2 the price at McDonalds. Plus I didn’t have to waste gas and time to go get them.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
