What $40 Buys

… at least in San Diego.

  • 10 lbs of potatoes
  • 10 lbs of bananas
  • 4 lbs frozen strawberries
  • 1 watermelon
  • 2 heads of lettuce
  • 3 cucumbers
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1 head of celery
  • 1 red cabbage
  • 2 green peppers
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • 2 yellow onions
  • 1 bag of carrots

Ten pounds of bananas is about twice as many bananas as I usually eat in a week, so I froze about half for smoothies next week. Four pounds of strawberries is a few pounds less than I like per week, but I had some left over from last week’s excursion. The lettuce, tomatoes, cabbage, peppers, carrots, celery and some of the cucumbers will become this week’s salads, and other meals will include potatoes, rice and beans (already purchased–except I forgot I was out of black beans! Fortunately there are so many stores available). Cukes and potatoes will be come snacks, as will the watermelon.
