On Shopping

Another thing to love about living in Houston (aside from the abundance of great restaurants): the highly-affordable cost of living.

I just bought all of the groceries needed for the next three nights’ dinners, and I paid $36.12.  I figure that works out to about $12.04 per meal, or $6.02 per person, for the following dinners:

  • Porkchops with caramelized onion sauce, with a side of creamed spinach
  • Homemade, peasant-style (that is, extra veggies, yay!) spaghetti bolognese
  • Hearty tomato and white bean soup, with a side of cheddar cheese & chives beer bread

Gotta love high-quality, low-cost groceries!
