Grocery Shopping Trip May 10

I tried again to keep my shopping to a minimum since we have a bulk order coming up soon and I want to not do too bad on the budget goals. Since I already spent a chunk at IGA on our Mother's Day tapas supper, I had to be more frugal at the store. The easiest way to do that is look for recipes that fit what we have at home in the pantry or freezer and round out the rest of the week with fresh produce on sale. Of course I am stuck in the egg and milk department, but that is, what it is.

  1. Bug bite? Do I really want to know what that is?
