I didn't do my full budget shop yesterday, but I did go to Fred Myers hoping to find a few bulk grains, but other than quinoa they didn't have anything. I was hoping to find bulgur wheat for tabouli salad. Quinoa even in bulk is not a grain for such a tight budget. It wasn't a wasted trip though, because they had a few awesome sales in the produce section, which made me really happy, because I thought I wouldn't be able to have much in the way of fresh.

Since I'm going to be eating a budget this week, I decided to treat myself last night and try the garlic fries I found at Trader Joe's. These things are AHMAZING, and seriously these need to be in every potato and garlic lovers life! I was surprised at first, because it's just plain fries, but they have a sauce packet that you defrost while the fries are cooking! The sauce is basically garlic, parsley and oil. So, these aren't healthy fries, but they are sooooooooo worth the calories! Like I'll work out an extra two hours to eat these! After the fries are done cooking, you mix them with the sauce and serve. The sauce soaks into the hot fries and it is just pure magic.
Tomorrow I will have everything I ate today on a budget, what else I found, and how I'm going to do this challenge, because I've added a second part to it.
