@ellabella It IS in the second actually. I have been soaking that thing up. So many good recipes.
@ellabella Ooo I just tried doing this! I used oats, dried currants, walnuts, toasted coconut, orange zest and then some butter and maple syrup per a Heidi Swanson recipe I have. So many better than what I had been buying in the store too. I will have to try throwing some millet in there.
I just died at the Biz Sweets part. This is my ghost.
@OllyOlly And apparently this thread will be where I feel crazy about how much I spend on groceries since everyone else seems to spend significantly less than me...
Looks like I have spent on average $175 a week on groceries in 2013 so far. This is for two people and usually includes wine and beer. We also cook almost every meal, I always eat leftovers for lunch, and we choose to buy almost 100% organic. We have been trying lately to see if we can spend less money, hopefully it goes well! (Last week I was closer to $130)

@stuffisthings Also the Baltimore Museum of Art has some cool stuff and it is FREE. Another museum (although I haven't been) is Geppi's Entertainment museum, it is by Camden Yards and I think comic book themed.

@stuffisthings Yes Hamden! I would check out the Golden West there for eats, and there are a lot of vintage shops near by to peruse if there is a wait. Also the Visionary Arts Museum is great, and different. You can walk up Federal Hill (right out back of the museum) afterwards for some great views of the harbor. Down in Fells Point I always have a place in my heart for the Sound Garden, which is one of those few music/used movies stores still in existence. I also LOVE Joe's Squared pizza, it is thin cooked cooked on a screen, kind of different. They often have live music. Near there is the wind-up space, which has stuff at night if you will be there late, DJs, Bands ect.
Well first I want to say that I love how Mike is just this casual baby shopping expert, kind of how I imagine him to have just casual expert experience in everything. I am hoping to spend close to $0 this weekend. I am sick and probably won't be going out for drinks/food. And most of Saturday will be spent at my firm's shareholders' meeting that I organized. And it is my boyfriend's week to buy groceries. I think I will estimate $30 for various stuffy nose supplies and probably an 'emergency' dessert.
So I just got back from my lunch break that I spent sitting in my car listening to Waxahatchee and wondering about the "idea that I might just be, like, built for loneliness." So god, I don't even know what to say right now.
@swirrlygrrl Yes I would love someone to sit down and tell me if I should be running up miles instead of $, but I figure it all must be pretty close to the same right?
