On the one hand, it could have been lower since I didn’t shop much or at all some weeks. On the other hand, we’ve been home more (with more people in the house) so more eating is getting done. I also did some restocking of things that had gotten low. And, I bought a few things I’d far prefer to buy on sale not on sale because I haven’t been as tuned to them as usual over the past two months and we were running low. Hopefully that aspect will straighten itself out over the next month or so.

I think this was a pretty normal shopping week. I still haven’t gotten back to reliable meal planning, so that will have to wait another week. But, I have managed to keep up with the grocery pictures despite everything else going on.
I went to the farm stand and Stop & Shop on Monday. With the now three year old in tow I did buy a few things (berries, specifically) that I wouldn’t have otherwise. But, they all got eaten.
Cheese, pasta, Oreos, and soda were on sale at Stop & Shop. The ground beef was for shepard’s pie that night so I didn’t mind buying the marked down package.
On Wednesday I went to Wegman’s. I bought the jicama on a whim. We’ve been reading Eating the Alphabet a bunch lately (its the example “j” with jalapeno). Also, last week we had lunch out and ended up with a salad with jicama in it. Turns out my four year-old is a big fan! I may buy it again.
