This is How Much I Suck at Food Shopping

 
This is what I got for $43.12 at Balducci’s: A container of stuff from the salad bar, a mozzarella sandwich, potato ships, Half & Half, blackberries, two macoun apples, goat cheese ravioli, puttanesca sauce, and walnuts. That is good for three meals I think, plus the walnuts will be my snack for the next week. Oh, and the Half & Half will last me a few weeks.

Maybe I’m wrong and this is not a bad haul for $43.12.  

I eat well in any case. There’s that. The potato chips are my indulgence food. They weren’t selling pumpkin pie by the slice though, so I’m suffering from a food deficit.  I won’t be at peace until I have pumpkin pie.
