For this week I bought:
1 head of garlic
1 bag of carrots
2 lbs of raw dried chickpeas
1 litre of Spanish olive oil
1 package of 6 small sesame pita loaves
1 quart of milk
1 dozen eggs
Met Foods (my local):
2 24 oz jars of Classico spaghetti sauce
Fort Greene Farmer's Market:
About that Classico spaghetti sauce. I was so tired and frustrated on Friday night, and as I wondering what I could make for dinner all I could think of was penne rigate with Classico spaghetti sauce, one of my former favorite quick comfort foods. I do have a can of tomatoes, and I thought I should make an arrabiata sauce that's relatively quick and easy. When I got home I realized that my cats needed new litter STAT, so I went off to Met. Wouldn't you know they were having a sale on Classico 2/$5? It put me $5 over budget but I was an easy mark.
This should last me a couple of months, but I've been so busy lately I may use up in the next couple of weeks.
At least it will ease me back into cooking more.
Anyway it was probably a good thing I didn't attempt to cook anything real because I absent mindedly put the penne in the cold water to boil...
