This Week’s Groceries: Candler Park Market

Within the past week I moved to Atlanta on quite a small budget (hopefully until I get a job). Therefore, I can still keep with this theme of Cooking on a Budget! Though I guess cooking on a budget is always good, regardless of what economic situation you’re in. So to return to my old routine, here’s a list of my groceries and the total cost. This isn’t the original list I created, but I really wanted to do all my shopping at the local Candler Park Market, so I adjusted and figured I’d do something nifty this week:

milk
onion
potato
dry Italian sausage
tomato
elbow pasta
olive oil
oyster sauce (I didn’t have to go to the Asian market!)
sponge
Dogfish Head Punkin Ale 4pk

Total cost: $32.38

Once I get a job, I’ll show you my budget. That’s all for now!

This Week’s Groceries

I feel super awesome about myself. Why? Because I just did my grocery shopping at the Union Square greenmarket! I’m really excited to cook now that I’m (almost) done with classes. Check out the list (items not from U.O. in italics):

green beans
green chard
celery
romaine lettuce
carrots
russet potatoes
mineola tangerines
valencia oranges
bananas
d’anjou pears
red grapefruit
red delicious apples
strawberry apple juice
eggs
spare ribs

I haven’t been keeping track of my budget, but I think the total is: Urban Organic (26.98) + other groceries (14) = $40.98

Not too shabby.

This Past Week’s Groceries

I haven’t been making any new recipes because I haven’t had the time to cook a lot! I’ve been making really simple meals, or meals I already know. It’s unfortunate. But anyway, here’s the list (items not from U.O. in italics):

green cabbage
mushrooms
red chard
green leaf lettuce
onions
carrots
yukon gold potatoes
kiwi
mineola tangerines (yuuuum)
bananas
bartlett pears
red grapefruit
milk
eggs
mini apple pie
dates
cheddar cheese
chicken wings
sugar
green tea
rice

Urban Organic (26.98) + other groceries (26.91) = $53.89
total left in $60 budget = $6.11

This Week’s Groceries

Sorry I’m posting the grocery list so late. Also, I don’t know if I’ll be posting a recipe this week. I made beef stroganoff from a McCormick packet as my main exciting dish this week. I don’t normally make dinners based around a seasoning packet, but I was quite pleased with it. Oh, I guess I did make pear butter. I can post that recipe later. Anyway, here’s the list (items not from U.O. in italics):

spinach
collards
broccoli
carrots
russet potatoes
kiwi
royal mandarin oranges
bosc pears
bananas
navel oranges
braeburn apples
milk
eggs
onion
apple cider
beef
rice
mini pumpkin pie
black beans
sour cream
vanilla extract

Urban Organic ($26.98) + other groceries ($25.95) = $52.93
total left in budget = $27.07

This Week’s Groceries

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m making borscht tomorrow! Also, I just realized I never posted the recipe I used for sarma! So although I’ll be making my mom’s borscht this week, I’ll try to remember to post the sarma recipe later. I also plan on baking a red velvet cake this week for Valentine’s day, so…I’ll be pretty busy, in addition to getting ready for my Thesis Exhibition!!! Anyway, here’s the grocery list for this week (items not from Urban Organic are in italics):

eggplant
bunch beets (I ordered an extra portion)
red leaf lettuce
carrots
roma tomatoes
russet potatoes
kiwi
bosc pears
bananas
valencia oranges
granny smith apples
**I was supposed to receive a red grapefruit as well, but I’m guessing they ran out?
eggs
milk
cream cheese
chicken broth
powdered sugar
white vinegar
red cabbage
parsnips
short ribs

Urban Organic ($29.47) + other groceries ($20.28) = $49.75
total left in budget: $30.25

This Week’s Groceries

In 14 days my BFA Thesis exhibition opens, and I’ve been running around NYC like a mad woman. My diet has been totally off and I’m not cooking as often as I’d like to be. I am, however, doing my best! Like I mentioned on Twitter, I think tonight I’ll make the stuffed acorn squash I made a couple weeks ago, since Urban Organic gave me another acorn squash and I don’t feel like making soup. So here’s the list for the week (items not from U.O. in italics):

acorn squash
yams
green leaf lettuce
carrots
yellow onions
russet potatoes
kiwi
mango
d’anjou pears
bananas
celery
red delicious apples
milk
eggs
clementines
rice pilaf
sour cream
ramen

Urban Organic ($26.98) + other groceries ($17.04) = $44.02
amount left in budget: $35.98

This Week’s Groceries

I’m really excited to tell you about the recipe I baked this week, but first I should do the groceries. School started this week, which means the budget is back. I’m glad because now I have structure and feel I can control my spending. So here it is (items not from U.O. in italics):

green cabbage (wtf?)
garnet yams
romaine lettuce
mushrooms
carrots
russet potatoes
kiwi
bosc pears
bananas
valencia oranges
spinach
granny smith apples
asparagus
milk
eggs
hoisin sauce
chicken thighs
chopped walnuts

Urban Organic ($26.98) + other groceries ($22.07) = $49.05
amount left in budget = $20.90 (I also bought bread and coffee at Le Pain Quotidien! Fantastic!)
