This is not the call you want from your brother: "I've been diagnosed with pertussis (whooping cough), and since we spent Thanksgiving together, your family has been exposed and needs to get put on antibiotics."
Whoo-eee. Fun times. So, off to CVS I went to collect four rounds of antibiotics. Right next to CVS is a new Natural Market. And then, it was amazing, I found myself INSIDE the store. How did that happen?
But it was okay, because you know what? I found the makings of the Day Four lunch for the kiddos.
- Organic Valley cheese, $0.56
- Organic Golden Delicious Apple, $0.66
- Grape Tomatoes, $0.11
- 2 Slices of Whole Wheat Bread, $0.40
- Peanut Butter, $0.06
- Organic Fruit Spread, $0.22
Total, $2.01 for my daughter's and $1.90 for my son's (no grape tomatoes).
This is what called out my name from the shelves (okay, okay, so I had some mommy guilt from the junk jelly from yesterday):
The bread is made locally, and guess what? Look at the ingredients:
The cashier told me it was amazing bread. I ate a slice in the car on the way home. He was right. It rocks.
