This past week was a rough week — we said goodbye to Champ on Monday and he went back to his mom full-time after 8 1/2 months of being in our home. We are both parts thrilled and heartbroken by this — thrilled for him and his mom, heartbroken for the great loss of his daily presence and smiles and joy in our home. I’ll share more about this tomorrow.
Suffice it to say, there were a lot of tears and sadness in our home and not a whole lot of productivity. Friends were so kind to surround us and pour into us — and they sent food for multiple meals this past week. So I didn’t do much cooking or shopping.
But I did make it to Kroger once this week and here’s what I bought:
Kroger Shopping Trip:
- Kroger Cinnamon Cereal – $1.49
- Kroger Honey Nut Cereal – $1.49
- Kroger Toasted Oats – $1.49
- 2 bags All Purpose Flour – $2.49 each, used $0.50/1 Kroger ecoupon = $1.99 each
- Kroger Canola Oil – $1.99
- Taylor Farms Salad Kit – marked down to $1.99
- Produce – $0.99
- 2 bunches Bananas marked down – $0.97, $1.01
- Cacique Queso Cheese – marked down to $1.69
- Spinach Greens – marked down to $2.79
- 2 jars of Kroger Peanut Butter – marked down to $1.25 each
- 3 Whole Chickens – on sale for 4.27, $4.54, and $4.46
- Milk – $2.99
- 2 bags of Sugar – $1.99 each
- Total with tax $46.83
I didn’t have an appetite at all for a few days (grieving does weird things to you!), but I made myself eat and tried to eat nourishing foods — especially since I’m nursing. I put the marked down cheese on the marked down salad I got to make a quick and easy and nutritious salad.
My uncle gave us honey from his bee hives! I can’t wait to use it!
She is loving experimenting with eating different foods and is slowly getting her pincer grasp! (Also, see her face here?? This is her pretty much most all day long. She just loves life and has the sweetest personality!)
I made smoothies a few days using the marked down spinach, marked down bananas, milk, and peanut butter.
On Saturday night, I was feeling the itch to bake some kind of comfort food, so Kierstyn and I made Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls to have while we decorated the Christmas tree as a family.
All ready to go into the oven!
