Day 23 - Off to The Farmers' Market - Wee Hee!

8am, after scraping the ice off the car, I headed up the road to EPIC and new supplies for the week. I'm getting good at this frugal stuff as I even remembered to take my empty egg carton from two weeks ago and return it to the egg lady for reuse!

On the list this week:

* Locally produced olive oil
* Half a dozen eggs
* 250g mushrooms
* 1 red pepper
* 1 head of brocolli
* 1 kilo apples
* 1/2 a cabbage
* 1 eggplant

Total cost: $27.10

Total spent since June 1: $137.18

Nothing quite as nice as a basket of fresh produce from the markets!

There's info on the pantry moth here, if you're interested.

You can get gorgeous macadamia oil at the markets too.

Jejune - thatnks for the info but I checked and all my containers look like they're only containing what they should and nothing more.

Seepi - I saw it there but couldn't justify it nor work out exactly what you use it for. I'm afraid my Kiwi roots are showing. Besides, I'd already spent $12 on olive oil...

Taph - I'm glad because you'll be eating some of it! I'm think ratatouille?
