This week’s grocery bill:
In my defense, this is still a lot less than I have spent in the past for a week of groceries. Yes, I could have swapped the steaks and lamb for more chicken or cheaper cuts because we’re-on-a-budget-because weddings-are-expensive-and-so-are-holiday-plane-tickets-and-we-have-a-2-hour-commute-and-a-mortgage-and-I could-go-on-and-on-and-on-and-bless-his-heart-The Man-hears-me-give-this-spiel-every-day-and-hasn’t-left-me-yet…but gosh-darn-it, it’s a long weekend and I wanted a steak and some lamb to celebrate because we work hard and we deserve it!!
On the menu tonight: I’m slow-roasting some pork carnitas, which I plan on smothering in salsa ans sour cream. Clearly, we’re not making any effort to carb load for the race tomorrow
