Tuesday was grocery day and time do the prep for the coming 2 weeks. The cost came in at $215. So, I went a little over my $200 goal. However, I bought sesame oil and frozen raspberries and it turns out I already had those. I also splurged on the organic cane sugar instead the basic from Domino. The most expensive items were Olive Oil at $14 and a herbal tea at $11. Also, I bought bread, sprouted 7 grains and a rice/millet, instead of making my own. There are some pumpkin seed rolls in the freezer that I will be using with my veggie burger of the week.
I seem to make hummus every grocery period. This one came from the Gourmet Every Day cookbook. It was listed as a low fat version because it uses tofu instead of tahini and less olive oil. It has toasted cumin seeds to give it a nice spice. It works well for me because I get extra protein from my hummus.
I will be making Gazpacho later in the week and the recipe calls for roasted red peppers. Here the peppers are fresh out of the oven and placed in a paper bag to steam. Once they cool down, the skins are easy to remove.
