Little did I know, last weekend was a holiday. I’m showing a pattern now of being swept away in my life and too busy to blog as I’ve planned. Last week went by so fast, I didn’t even know it was Monday. I didn’t shop very well at the market that weekend. I went to get my veggies separate from my fruit and when I went to pay for my veggies the market’s card machine didn’t work. They told me just to pay next week. So I got free produce, but I didn’t get any fruit!
When I got home Grandma called to invite us to a party so I had to get ready, which is always panic mode for me. How would I feed us at a party? Luckily, DH went to the grocery store and got us “munchies”. He decided not to go so I went with the two girls. I got back Sunday afternoon and we all took a nice nap and just lounged, forgetting completely that it was Monday.
That week was a low-fruit week. I think I ate a melon, some nectarines, strawberries and grapes, but mostly rice. Anyway this week I did good on Saturday, but took Sunday off from everything. I didn’t even step outside at all. I spent less than $60 and that included my tab from last week. I also got free tomatoes, cucumbers and pears.
My food list right now is: pears, nectarines, plums, apples, rice, polenta, oatmeal, limes, bananas, lettuce, herbs, 1 juan canary melon, 2 huge watermelons, dates, cucumber, squash, tomatillos, cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, acai smoothie packets. I’ll go need to go shopping on between today and Wednesday for grapes and/or berries, melons, more bananas, more dates and frozen fruit. I’m sure DH will go for a box of bananas in the next few days. I called Trader Joe’s and reserved a box days ago. I’m not talking quantities for this list, I’m still in moving mode… (I’ll post on that this week too.)
This is my third week doing <a href=”http://orgjunkie.com/2011/08/menu-plan-monday-aug-2211.html” title=”Menu Plan Monday”></a>

Starting next week, I’m (really) going to post what I actually ate throughout the week. This is my guideline but I’ll certainly leave the possibility for spontaneous eating and deviations from the plan. Also, I’m not writing out snacks ’cause I think that should happen as I please.
