June Food Stamp Challenge — Day 13

by Katy on June 13, 2010 · 4 comments

Today is day thirteen of the June Food Stamp Challenge, and I’m at work today. This means that I am not really able to write an in-depth column.

I did do some food shopping today, as my perishables were in short supply. I bought apples, eggs, lettuce, ice cream and milk. Saturday is always dessert night for my family, and tonight was no different. We were invited to a friend’s dessert potluck and I brought the ice cream, which was a nice local brand. It didn’t actually get served and I brought it home again. (At the host’s insistence.)

I also used a Kettelman’s gift card to buy three loaves of day-old challah for $1 apiece.

I would write down how much I spent, but I’m dead-dog tired, and that would involve getting off my tuchus. I’ll add that information to the Money Spent So Far link tomorrow.

P.S. If you are participating in the Food Stamp Challenge, and haven’t added your name to the blog link yet, please do. It’s been interesting to read other people’s blogs on the subject. Some of them are getting lots of hits!

Today I chopped up some leftover chicken breasts that I had baked a couple of days ago, added a lot of frozen broccoli and cheese for lunch. Delicious! Even our old cat Harley demanded a serving (and yes, he eats broccoli!)

This morning around 6 AM we went to scope out our blackberry picking spot. Most still weren’t ripe, but we did get a few. We’ve been foraging plums from my old Aunt’s trees. We use the fruits we gather to make wine and jelly. I use very low tech methods but have great results.

Really like idea of dessert night — we eat too many sweets round my place. Do you or your guys eat any cookies, cakes, or other sweet treats any other days — for dinner, after school, breakfast…? — or only ever on Saturday nights?

Thanks for adding the “money spent so far” link 🙂
