I stopped by the health food store after a lunch date with my husband yesterday. I needed to get some more turbinado and just decided to buy it at the health food store, even though it’s more expensive, since a trip to the bulk foods store was not in the schedule this week.
I was excited to find some produce markdowns while I was there! And I also picked up a few cups of steel cut oats. Well, they said “Steel Cut Oat Groats”. Is that what I’m looking for, or did I get the totally wrong thing? (Yes, I’m clueless about steel cut oats, can you tell?!)
Here’s a price breakdown:
2 bags of grapefruit — marked down to $0.99 each
2 bags of organic pears — marked down to $0.99 each
1 tub of yogurt — marked down to $1.99
Organic Steel Cut Oat Groats ($1.29/lb.) — $0.88
Organic Turbinado — $5.19
Total spent: $12.90
The pears were getting pretty close to past their prime, but I couldn’t pass them up at $0.99 per bag for organic pears. I’m making pear sauce in crockpot with them today. Yum!
