Went to the Grocery Store - Now Depressed
It has been a whirlwind kind of week. Four performances of Alice in Wonderland. So glad we took Spring Break this week. Now we are preparing for our church's annual B-que and yard sale. Lots to do. I will be working on the serving line tomorrow for the b-que and hubby heads up the yard sale. Plus tomorrow is hubby's birthday. Taking him out for a birthday dinner tonight. Went to the grocery store today and was so depressed over food prices. I was only able to buy two packages of ground round and two of chicken. The beef roasts were outrageous. The cheapest roast found was 19.00. Unbelievable! Also our local gas station is sitting at 3.68 a gallon. When I got home and told the husband about meat prices he said maybe it is time to start thinking about raising our own poultry to eat. Not sure if I am at that point yet. Also our grocery store sells a rotisserie chicken for 4.99. Can't even buy a chicken for that cheap and cook it yourself. That might actually turn me into a non meat eater. We do so much better as a family if I do a menu plan and I haven't in a couple of weeks. Also because of all the performances and practices alot of fast food has been bought and eaten over the past couple of weeks. Need to nip that in the bud right here and now. So I am now about to make out a menu plan for the next two weeks. Time to tighten the belt again on spending and such.
