I bought a strip of bus tickets and finished my shopping for Spend Nothing Work Week Ok, so for those interested in how we decided to spend our $60. Now I love to see what people buy at the store. It is more revealing than watching them do their laundry. That said, I will put down what was bought this weekend. And leave my laundry out of this. Among the fooditems: Vanilla soy milk Fresh lo mein broccoli 2 red peppers 2 sweet potatoes green onions 1 can chickpeas onions bread veggie burgers a bunch of carrots tortillas tofu 2 zucchinis russet potatoes scallions apples yogurt milk coffee peanut butter A bunch of bananas pasta can of tomatoes watercress brussel sprouts
2 extravagances: mango chutney and an avocado. Extravagances that did not fit: Goat cheese, lawash bread.
We spent $25 in Kensington market, and through careful calculations at dominion, came to just over $35 (Kiff insisted on the avocado). Total=Really close to $60
We had a dinner party last night and made 2 roasted organic chickens. We have boiled the bones for stock and made chicken salad(with apple, nuts, yogurt, mustard and green onion). The excellent broth is cooling (to be a soup later this week). Tomorrow for lunch: chicken salad and roasted veg. Other ideas for this week: A traditional chicken noodle soup vegetable stir fry with tofu and lomein veggie burgers and brussel sprouts pasta with tomato sauce tortillas with curried chick peas and sweet potatoes with mango chutney breakfast: toast with pb and banana, oatmeal with apple and vanilla soy
