The weather has warmed up again so it looks like fruit smoothies will make up the bulk of my breakfast this week. I can also mix things up with avocados and eggs for breakfast or as part of dinner. I wanted to focus on getting more veggies this week, and use my stores of quinoa, farro, and rice. Miso glazed egg plant, stir fried zucchini, etc.
But then I saw that Trader Joe’s starting stocking canned coconut milk again which means Thai curry noodle soup!
Unfortunately, I forgot to buy the cilantro so I’ll need to stop at a grocery store later this week. The total this week was $25.30, though the cilantro may bump me up another dollar or two.
So that’s it. A few squash and eggplants for veggies, and about a pound of fruit. There’s frozen berries, bananas, and almond milk in the fridge. I also bought a huge bag of chilies for a dollar fifty. The man wouldn’t sell me a handful, but he promised that I could pop them in my freezer and pull them out when I need it. This got me thinking of my lemongrass that always goes bad. It turns out you can pop that into the freezer as well.
I didn’t intend to buy any meat this week, but I was hoping to squeeze in some cheese. Maybe next week? We’ll see if I sink or swim.
