Today has been a really lazy day, except for my weekly grocery shopping trip. I kept the entire week's meals under $50, including snacks. There's even some pantry stock-up items I had coupons for. The only things not show are the millet and dried apricots I plan to buy tomorrow from the bulk bins.
Today's haul included chicken broth, Stonyfield yogurt (including the pumpkin pie!), apples, heavy cream and whole milk for ice cream, mixed greens, generic WW giant fudge bars (a guilty pleasure), stuffing mix, carrots, fresh cranberries, cauliflower, eggs, 93/7 ground beef, pork tenderloin, green peppers, fresh tortellini, parsnips, zucchini and garlic.
Other than shopping I did some laundry and that's about it. Just what I needed -- a relaxing day.
I started off with overeasy eggs, a slice of toast with TJ's pumpkin butter and french press coffee:
After shopping I warmed up with some mac and cheese and broccoli and a cup of herbal tea:
I sat down on the couch to catch up some of my DVR'd TV shows while the laundry was going, but I ended up falling asleep with Bella on the couch, waking up just in time to make a big pot of Tortellini Soup for dinner with a side of homemade garlic bread. Yum. I love this soup.. even if it takes a long time to make.
And now I think I'll put in a movie :)
