Saturday Spending

This was a huge grocery week for me. I knew I was needing to replace a couple staples, such as the chick peas, but I didn't think I was going to lose my mind halfway when I went to Phoenicia. I ought to've seen that coming, since I haven't set foot in that store in nearly two months. Plus, with Rosh Hashana needing to be purchased for, I really should not have been terribly surprised by the amount of food I bought this week. So here'll be the surprise for you too. :)

Phoenicia:

$5.69 - ground lamb
$5.43 - lamb shank
$2.49 - wasa rye crisps
$1.50 - pita; 9 loaves (which is weird I bought this since I'd just made pita two days before and intended to make more the next day)
$2.39 - apricot paste (kamruddin)
$1.99 - arabic cucumber pickles
$6.89 - olives
$1.99 - dried basil
$3.63 - gouda

$3.49 - cucumbers
$0.78 - parsley (2 bunches)
$1.99 - leeks

$2.54 - bulgarian feta
$2.29 - garlic
$1.49 - mint
$1.23 - white onions
$1.31 - sweet onions
$9.80 - quince (yeah, I know. But I make all my quince paste for the year in one shot)
