ON THE BACK BURNER

Nov. 2

Just for fun, I saved all of my grocery receipts and eating out receipts for the month of October. . My receipts from the grocery seemed so out of wack that I just wanted a reality check about how I was spending my food dollar. I eat pretty low on the food chain and especially this month when my grandson brought me all of the produce anyone would want or need and I declared that ai was going to eat from my freezer for the month. When I tallied up my food bill, it actually wasn't as much as I suspected. I checked with the USDA amounts for a single person and I was at the high end , but not out of their scale. Unlike their figures which is just food products, I have cleaning supplies and dog food. So I am still in range.. I cook for Dixie, so maybe I should say that my household is 1 1/2 eaters. It was an interesting project for the month and maybe at a latter time I will do this when I don't get all of my veggies hand picked and delivered  and my freezer isn't full.
