Several things led my grocery bill this week to be higher than normal: First, my girlfriend Kelly introduced me to The Martha Stewart Everyday Food app for my IPhone and I swear, I have spent hours, flipping through all her recipes and even picked out two to make this week; however, that meant I needed a few extra items from the store that I otherwise would not have needed to purchase.  Second, I was out of pantry staples like onion powder, Sherry, and breadcrumbs so, I had to do a bit of stocking up.  And third, Safeway was offering nearly $1.00 off a lot of the items we use on a regular basis PLUS another $0.50 off each item if you buy eight or more qualifying items.

Current Inventory:
7 portions ground turkey
6 portions ground beef
5 portions boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 portions shrimp

Spent: Safeway $205.52
