So far, our total expenditures for this week come to $30.59 (details here). We made some extra purchases today that I need to add to our tally, as follows:
- Organic Raisins, 7.79
Tacoma Farmer’s Market, 09/01/2011
- String of Chili Peppers, 7 (These are very pretty, plus I’ll use them in chilli recipes.)
- Sungold Cherry Tomatoes, 2.5
WEEKLY TOTAL: $47.88
Money Left: $2.12
I hadn’t planned on going to the Tacoma Farmer’s Market, but ended up spending the day with a friend. Typically I buy my produce from the CSA, so it was very pleasant walking around and seeing the produce from all the vendors. There is definitely something much more fun about shopping at an open air market than under the fluorescent lights of a grocery store. Food becomes romantic and imaginative. You get ideas and inspiration for exciting foods you want to try. Hence: the string of chili peppers. Which I will use, but which I purchased primarily because they were gorgeous.
