Grocery shopping results:
budget: $40
actually spent: $39.02
over/under: + $.98

1 head of celery
1 lb carrots
2 lbs cranberries
5 lbs oranges
1 gallon milk
1/2 pint half and half
10 lbs flour
5 lbs cornmeal
1 (pint? The large container) jam
1 (small containter) honey
1 (large, but not "family sized) peanut butter
1 pkg Italian sausage (6 sausages)
3 cans beans (chickpeas, black beans, kidney beans)
1 bag mixed frozen veg.
1 lb dried split peas
2 lbs black lentils
2 lbs red lentils
1.5 lbs steel cut oats

Good outcome overall, considering I bought a couple of items that weren't on the list.
I also went to the library, returned books, and picked up two novels (It's been a while since I've read professionally published fiction). I'll possibly write about those another day.

Dinner tonight is spinach and meatballs over rice. Also need to make yogurt and a pot of porridge, and dishes absolutely have to get done at some point. I'm going to go get on all that right now :)
