Weekly Shopping Trip

 Dorothy Lane trip: $61. I bought my weekly meat for the big salad with grilled chicken or beef I have for lunch every day, plus dried cranberries and specialty blue cheese dressing.

Also went to Kroger and spent $60. A little higher this week, but will hopefully even out next week.
