My Daily Shop



Here's another installment of "What did Amy buy with her $13 volunteer voucher today?"
  • 4 hefty celery bunches
  • 8 green bell peppers
  • An enormous bag of baby carrots
  • 3 yellow zucchini
  • A box of hummus
  • A package of sfogliatine, a tasty Italian puff pastry
  • A loaf of raisin-cinnamon swirl bread
  • A loaf of Irish soda bread
  • A bottle of ranch dressing

To note, all of these items actually fell a bit short of $13. My rabbits will be pleased with all of the vegetables I was able to secure for them, but since I also discovered some ranch dressing, I figure they won't mind if I borrow some celery, carrots, and green bell peppers for some healthy snacking this week. The hummus would definitely go well with the above, too.

Other items in-store today which I could have easily picked up instead included some nutrient-rich fennel, lots of honey mandarin oranges and baby Brussels sprouts, bags of bread flour, bananas, many packages of medium-smooth tofu, huge bags of spinach and iceberg lettuce, and a delicious-looking trifle dessert (which I did my best to stay away from, hence, the sfogliatine).

Don't know what to do with some of the produce you can find in-store? Here are a few recipe ideas:
