Budget Food Haul 2
I'm just gonna throw this out there but if Trader Joe's wants to sponsor me, I would 100% let their ads be anywhere on my site. If the just had the bulk food section of a whole foods I would sincerely never shop anywhere else.
This week's haul was a bit smaller coming in at a total of $34.60. Also, I had used some of the soy sauce when I took this picture. They didn't sell me one with a quarter cup missing. I know I wrote on my last post about food shipping that I have to have some kind of game plan, and I did this time too. Again, endless roving for food could paralyze me if I don't have a plan. Here's my food shop items and the plan for them:
- Baby Carrots
- Coconut milk
- Sweet onion
- Soy sauce
- Artichoke hearts
- Chopped spinach
- Riced broccoli
- Spring mix
- 2 Kombuchas (there's no plan for these other than to drink them and look down my nose at other people)
I have a love hate relationship with curries where I either want them all the time for every meal, or I want anything else that isn't curry for weeks. Yesterday I remembered I had bought some Massaman curry paste awhile ago and boom. Back in the mood for currry.
My plans for this grocery haul are:
- Massaman curry (recipe to follow)
- Caesar salad with the spring mix
- Zucchini noodles with a TBD sauce
I also used the soy sauce to make two more batches of that General Tso's sauce to finish up the seitan I made and I cannot emphasize enough how damn good that turned out. SO WORTH trying and learning about some new ingredients you might not have known about before. Happy eating!
