May Madness- Groceries & Meals

I’ve been taking pictures of most of meals and groceries but haven’t been able to do the weekly pots. As my title suggest its been a maddening month. I now work a full time job, one part time job, and a weekly volunteer program. Sometimes you gotta do what you have to do, Illinois cuts way too many taxes for my paycheck to be adequate. Sign.

During May I made four trips for groceries. Three trips to a big box store and one to the local farmers market on the first they opened. Plus my month Nature box subscription.

I experimented with my foods this month and they turned out pretty dang spectacular if I do say so myself. I’ve been making large portions of either dinner or lunch and using them for a day or two.

Breakfast has usually been the usual affair of either a fruit such as apples with peanut butter or oatmeal with fruits.
