I went to Trader Joe’s today and for those unfamiliar with the chain store – it started out as a quirky yet more-or-less healthy food store easy on the pocketbook. Lots of hard-to-find at-such-good prices non-artisinal yet wholesome foods. One cannot leave the store without buying more than he or she came in for thus negating the low-cost teaser.
My shopping list consisted of:
Frozen brown rice and decaffeinated Irish tea.
What I came away with:
A spray of Eucalyptus
13 Stems of yellow African rosebuds
1 Bag of 3 Organic romaine hearts
2 Tins of peppermint hot chocolate
2 Organic Jasmine rice – frozen
3 Organic brown rice – frozen
1 Bag of sweet Meyers lemons (4)
1 Bag organic lemons (4)
3 Organic bananas
1 large shell of blackberries
Total outlay = $55.56
All I needed was some rice and tea.
with a hint of peppermint –
my sixtieth birthday
