Friday Night Munchies

example

Christine and I forewent the art show in favor of grocery shopping. A sad Friday night choice, we realized, but we both were starting to feel a little like Old Mother Hubbard!
This list looks enormous, but note I saved $22.14 between coupons, member specials, and a bag refund! Go me!
In other news, I'm trying to cut back a little bit on soy, and was excited to find a rice-soy blend milk in the soymilk aisle. I'll let you know how it tastes! I'm also trying a little bit to explore new grains, thus, the spelt bread.
Happy Friday!

Wow, that list! It *is* enormous, but what a list it is!!!

Love all the Seventh Generation goodies, Catherine.

Curious how the Eden organic Rice-Soy blend beverage is...

I like the Rice/Soy blend--I usually get that or just rice milk, because I don't want to over do the soy either. Let us know what you think!

Just curiosity-- Why cutting back on Soy? I have a vague recollection of hearing/reading reasons for this, but as a non-veg, very-moderate-soy-eater I didn't listen to closely....

I've been making my own soy/rice milk and I like it a lot. I used to do all soy, but the rice tastes better homemade.
There is so much negative stuff about soy, but I don't buy it. well, I do with the processed stuff, but not the whole bean.
