I just got back from grocery shopping!!! Ok, not a big deal for most people, but for us, this was a big deal today. We finally got re-approved for food stamps, and they came in this morning!!! I have fresh fruit! and veggies! and bread! Things that are not in a can! For those food-lovers who are interested in what I got, keep reading...

Tuna (4 cans), hamburger dill pickles, potato chips, tortilla chips, apple juice (2), and chocolate covered donuts!

All of this was from Aldi, and it was a grand total of $107.33. I love Aldi. I love them even more since they have so much GF stuff now! I am, however, very sad that meat has gotten so damn expensive. Pork is cheapest, then chicken, and beef is... well, I’m not going to be getting any for awhile :/

I am SOOOOO happy I finally got to go shopping. It’s been nearly 3 weeks since I could pick up more than a couple of things. And I just realized I forgot eggs. Argh.
