happy eating

for once in my life my winco bill wasn’t over $100.  i was wondering if it had anything to the fact that there were only four things on my list that weren’t produce, bulk (i.e. nuts, coconut, dates, etc.), or dairy.  like, what the heck are the rest of the aisles for anyways?  in the end, i was very much pleased to have a fun, healthy menu and it wasn’t terribly expensive.  strawberries were on sale even.  ($1.50 for two pounds, i bought 8.)  let’s cook this.
