99 Cent Store

99 Cent Store

So my grocery shopping routine has changed now that I am making less money than I used to. I go to the 99 Cent store first, Trader Joe’s second, and then Safeway or where ever…I’ll probably start checking Grocery Outlet soon too.

The 99 Cent Store has some awesome finds…you just have to keep checking. My favorite find so far has been a big bag of organic US grown Romaine lettuce! UGH! IT MAKES ME SO HAPPY! It was FRESH and stayed a long time – the bag had three stalks and it took time to eat up. The sell by dates my be close, but that doesn’t mean the product is bad. They seem to always have good carrots too. I’ve also picked up a big bag of fresh mint, a big box of sweet strawberries, and some celery. I’m so impressed.

I don’t know about y’all, but I’m so here for eating healthy and not paying through the nose.

 

 

 

I also tried a new recipe! Broccoli, Cheddar, Quinoa Cups!

They’re easy, tasty, and portable! I saw the recipe on Facebook and couldn’t resist. The original calls for mini muffin trays, but I don’t have one so instead of “bites” I made “cups”.

Mine seemed a tad under seasoned, but that could be from my lack of onion powder…I grabbed a second garlic powder when I meant to buy onion! I felt silly. Also! I buy my spices at the 99 Cent Store!

If you give these a go let me know how they turn out or if you tweaked anything!
