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!)

This Week’s Groceries

OK, so it’s been quite a week since the new year started. Yesterday Urban Organic seemed to have forgotten me, but they called today to confirm my box hadn’t been delivered, and they brought me one this evening. And keeping with my new year’s somewhat resolution, here is my grocery list (items not from U.O. in italics):

green chard (they forgot to include/ran out)
green beans (they ALSO forgot to include!/ran out)
green leaf lettuce
eggplant
carrots
russet potatoes
kiwi
dan jou pears
bananas
valencia oranges
spinach
braeburn apples
eggs
milk
onions
tomatoes
garam masala (supposed to get chaat, but they didn’t have any)
plain yogurt
tofu
chickpeas
canned, premade jaipur karhi (sounded like an easy meal)
annie’s mac and cheese

Urban Organic ($26.98) + other groceries ($30.50) = $57.48
total left in budget = ??? (I’ve spent a lot while people were visiting. Plus, school hasn’t started, so my budget/routine is all wack.)

This Week’s Groceries

This will be an interesting week – may or may not be like yours. Since Thanksgiving is this Thursday, that usually means college students aren’t cooking for themselves. Either we go home, we spend the holiday with family friends, we go out with friends, or we just don’t do anything. My room mate’s parents are staying with us, which means they not only are supplying us with a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner from Whole Foods, but they are also cleaning and rearranging our apartment. Cool? I think so.

I did, however, still go grocery shopping. I’ll be making my bacon quiche Thanksgiving morning for breakfast, and then I’ll attempt to bake this fantastic blueberry crumb bar recipe I found on Smitten Kitchen. Also, I still need groceries for meals in case there aren’t enough leftovers. So here’s the list (items not from U.O. in italics):

spinach
green beans
green leaf lettuce
kale
baby carrots
garnet yams
russet potatoes
yellow onions
kiwi
bananas
hamlin oranges
red delicious apple
milk
eggs
black bean sauce
chick peas
corn starch
pasta
lemon
tofu
cream of mushroom soup
butter
ground beef
blueberries

Urban Organic ($26.98) + other groceries ($42.96) = $69.94
total left in budget = $0.49 (bought dinner on Monday)

This Week’s Groceries

Wow. So I’ve been slacking a lot. I’m trying a really cool recipe this week, and I’ll try to find time to post last week’s recipe! So crazy! Urban Organic was supposed to include Florida corn this week, but due to “inferior quality,” I received an extra portion of zucchini instead. I also asked for an avocado, which wasn’t included in the little box. I also plan on baking cookies for a friend who’s coming into town this weekend.

Life is hectic, to say the least. Here’s this week’s groceries (groceries not from U.O. in italics):

zucchini
green leaf lettuce
local kale
carrots
garnet yams
russet potato
avocado
kiwi
bananas
hamlin oranges
bartlett pears
gala apples
oj
eggs
chicken broth (2 cans)
frosted donuts (I was under the influence while grocery shopping…)
capellini
flour
rice
chocolate ships
lamb
butter
canned crushed tomatoes
chick peas

Urban Organic ($27.98) + other groceries ($38.31) = $66.29
total left in budget = $5.79 (bought dinner on Monday)
