What’s in my Grocery Basket?

I went to four grocery stores today. FOUR.

To be fair, for the past couple weeks, we’ve had a good reserve of staple foods in the house so I haven’t had to do a “big shop” for us in a while. We finally worked our way through most of our fresh produce and meat (except for the salami log from last week).

All that being said, brace yourself for a LONG post.

Steve’s Ice Cream, Mint Cacao Chip. I’ve been wanting to try this ice cream for a LOOOOONG time. But I’ve had a hard time justifying the expense and sugar load.

This dairy-free and is made with fresh mint and chocolate-covered cacao nibs.
