GCC Shopping Round Up

First, I have to apologize. My laptop isn't working...which holds my camera software, so I wasn't able to download my shopping photos. They are sitting there all nice and pretty and helpless, trapped on my camera until payday comes round and I can get my laptop fixed. In the meantime I'm feeling really guilty that I've been making my kids use this old crumbly S-L-O-W computer for the past several years. On the bright side I STILL have Internet access. Yahoo!

This week I had a fridge still full of fruits and veggies and plenty of root vegetables left in their storage areas. I even had the hamburger and turkey on hand so I had no need to purchase meat this week. And as for bread purchases, all they've had lately is the 100% whole wheat which only a few of us like so I still have lots of bread left. The kids prefer a lighter bread (dang their pickiness) but I refuse to buy more until the rest is used up. We just don't waste anything around here whether ya like it or not!

I've wanted to leave this info for a long time, but with the New Year, now is the time to share my "secret" to designer coffee. I purchase green coffee beans at significant savings and roast them myself. This way, otherwise expensive coffee beans, such as those from Ethiopia, are affordable. I found an older coffee roaster on ebay years ago, and have used it with no problems. There are several sources of green coffee beans, so it is not difficult to find what you want. I hope this helps some of your readers. Happy New Year one and all!
