Project Grocery: Gold Plated Pecans

Saturday's grocery shop was the quickest one I've ever done with the kids (and - let's face it - Mr) in tow. We left at ten, my Mom was due at eleven to take me out for a little tea break, and we were back in time to put away the groceries before I left.

Nice. If only every shop was like that, I wouldn't long to get up at five - by myself - and get everything done with a coffee in my hand.

Shut up. I still would.

And - despite the mad dash through the two stores - we managed to spend only $100.99 AND we finally have enough Club Sobeys points to get $10 off next week.

This week, we're eating things like Jane's Curried Chicken Pie, Jane's Meatball Subs (see a theme here?), pork chops, roasted cauliflower soup, Kevin's Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich, and leftovers. Lots and lots of leftovers.

Which might make up for the fact that Sunday morning, in a run out to the Bulk Barn to get basil, cardamom and pecans, I spent $30.18. Even after using my favourite coupon.

And twenty-seven dollars of that total? Pecans.

Look at them sitting there so innocently. Jerks.

There's my new t-shirt: "I spent $27 dollars on pecans". I'll make myself wear it every day until I want to burn it ceremoniously.

Stupid gold-plated pecans.
