Week's Groceries (January Grocery Challenge)

No photos this week, you'll have to use your imagination.

Last weekend we spent about $60.

Mr. Fixit went out grocery shopping with Grandpa Squirrel a few nights ago, and brought back about $100 worth of freezer meat, milk, bananas and a few other things.

Today we went to the discount supermarket and spent $107.88. If you wonder how we spent that much, it's not that hard...sigh. And they were having a sale, too.

This is what we brought home. Some of it's frugal. Some of it's not. That's what you get when everybody goes shopping.

You will have some good dinners this week!

Do you have a good recipe for hot chocolate mix? I have some powdered non-dairy creamer (I think that is the same thing as coffee whitener) and cocoa that I want to use up.
