Grocery challenge update

August 27th, 2008 at 08:30 pm

So far, the grocery challenge is going well. Of course, it's only been a week! but hey, baby steps, right?

Today I went to the grocery store. I bought ONLY what was on my list. And the list was basics. My total was $28.16.

Much better than the $60-70 I usually drop at the grocery.

Today I am making vegetarian chili so we have something quick, healthy, and easy to eat.

Removing that shelf from the fridge is also working. Now that we can see the food, it's actually getting eaten.

I never would have guessed taking away storage in the fridge would actually work out better. I guess it was the more is always better American attitude that was holding me back.

Also, I checked out a bunch of cookbooks from the library. I plan to photocopy the recipes I really like and put them in a plastic sleeve in a new binder. It will become my unofficial cookbook.

I have found an interesting recipe for veggie burgers that will solve two problems. First, using all of the darn zucchini from the garden and giving me a cheaper option than store-bought veggie burgers. They are about $5 a pack, which is way too much for 4 patties!
