food for 2, for 2

Continuing our attempt to shop for the two of us, for two weeks at a time, I had one major haul to walk home from the co-op tonight! (Dan's busy recording with one of the bands, and has the car.) Forgive me for not laying everything out pretty-like, but I was mighty tired by the time I arrived home!

I am super-proud of this grocery shop! We came in WAY under budget, still managed to buy mostly organic, got everything on the list except maple syrup (I'll pick some up at the FM tomorrow, since it's much cheaper,) and saved a TON of money on sale items! Woo! Oh yeah, and we managed 46% local, even though our growing season is definitely over.
