GCC Shopping Round Up

I noticed that yesterday I forgot to post the link to the recipe for Chicken Alfredo so I remedied that today. AND I wanted to let you know that it was crazy delicious. I added mushrooms to the sauce and then served mine over steamed broccoli while the kids ate theirs over pasta. Absolutely decadent.

Also, if you're a local I have a little bargain tip for you. The Franz outlet now has bread on sale 2 for $1 on Saturdays. That's incredible so you might want to adjust your shopping day so you can get bread, bagels, English muffins and rolls at those low prices.

So here's how the shopping went today.


2 loves of bread, 2 bags of bagels, 1 bag of hoagie rolls $4.25

S & S

dishsoap $.79
Kotex $3.99
Reynolds Foil $.99

Grocery Outlet

Tortilla chips $1.69
Pork rinds $.99
diced tomatoes $.79
Pantene conditioner $4.99 (one of few brands I'm loyal to for my curly hair)
Tater tots $.99


Hamburger buns $.93
Sour cream $1.08
Milk $2.33
Yogurt $1.68
whipping cream $2.78
ranch dressing $.43
italian dressing $1.44
3 lbs Ground beef $5.23
2 lbs mozzarella $5.27
fels naptha $1.12 (time for a new batch of laundry soap)
2 cream cheese $1.96
Parsley $.58
mushrooms $1.78
sugar free syrup $2.65
Bananas $1.12
bulk minced onion $1.15
onion $.39
green onions $.48
5 dozen eggs $6.88

Grand Total $58.75

The great new is that I stayed under my budget. The bad news is I depleted nearly all my stored up meat so I could be hurting next week. We'll just have to wait and see.

I did the no carb diet for about 2 years...and I have to say I was truly at my lightest EVER. Stay strong! :)

Thanks for the tip about the bread store. I will be sure to try it if I am in town on a Saturday.

I show that your total should be 58.75. I think you forgot to add in you bread totals. Sorry i am an accountant and it just didn't look right.

Thanks! I'll fix that. I love that I have a secret accountant. ; ) Kind of like a secret admirer.
