    Meghann-thank you SO so much for posting the prices!!! I was literally going to ask you how much some of the stuff was and then I saw them. That is so great-there’s a whole foods like 20 min from my house but I’m never sure if it’s worth it so now I can compare!:)Oh…Yay for a full fridge!

    thanks for sharing your healthy fridge. And $84 is a great deal for all that food. I will probably spend more than that on 2 meals out this week. But I am going to try and commit to bringing lunch to work more!

    Thanks for sharing your groceries. I went way over budget this week on groceries, but I plan on eating 3 meals from home almost all week. I bring lunch most days to work. Groceries are costly! Especially when you eat fresh, healthy foods!

    Restocking weeks are always more expensive, esp. for health-conscious foodies like us who make all our meals! :) And YES totally hit up the blackberries, I couldn’t believe how cheap they were!

    I’ll let you know on the Disney Half volunteering. It’d be SO much fun. Ross’ 25th bday is the week before, so I have to see what we’re doing (I may swing something for him the weekend before). And hey, who wouldn’t want free Disney tickets? oo, I’m thinking free bday present for Ross! 😉

    Sweet grocery shop…I can just see you with your receipt, diligently typing that all out!! I totally have a choc stash, it’s in a vase thing in my cupboard…nice to know it’s there for a dire chocolate emergency.

    oh man! I have a stash of peanut M&Ms too. I think i do pretty good with it too, one of those bags will last me about two weeks, because ill just eat a couple here and there! haha.

    LOL! You’re “before” fridge shot is a total bachelor fridge! All that’s missing is a case of Bud Light. The “after” is definitely more bachlorette-y. Great looking lasagna!

    WHITE CHOCOLATE MACADAMIA CLIF?! Is this a new flavor? As you can tell I am so jeal and want to try! Please let us know how it tastes. Thanks

    great idea for the lasagna!! i am also impatient when foods come out of the oven, which leads to lots of tongue burns. even though your lasagna fell apart, it still looks pretty in the bowl :)

    Love that you posted your groceries and price list. I also live alone, and sometimes wonder if its normal to spend as much as I do (especially when most college kids do NOT do this!). I rarely eat out, and really only spend money. outside of groceries, on starbucks. Thanks for sharing! My bill is about the same. Single gals rock!

    I had no idea the golden globes was on!

    LOVE publix! the 10 for 10 sale is awesome. I might go back tomorrow because they only had banana and apple when I showed up Friday.

    The lasagna looks great. Love extra veggies!

    Have a good one

    Love the peek into your fridge and pantry. I didn’t know there was a white chocolate macadamia nut clif bar!

    Ooh, I wonder if my Publix is having that sale. I need to check it out.

    I think it is UNFAIR that I cannot find flat out wraps. I like the price list. I think I am going to go back and add mine in now. 😀 Copy cat Heather. 😀

    Love the pre-show, but I totally spaced it was on. I’ll just have to watch the Fashion Police recap tomorrow night. Major guilty pleasure. :)

    Yay for a stocked fridge. I think you did great – $85 for all that food? Not bad at all!

    Your squash lasagna…freaking brilliant. I gotta try that!

    Love the grocery-shop rundown! I say it’s definitely worth that $84.39 for fresh, healthy foods all week (and restocking on some items)! It’s probably much cheaper than eating out!
    My boyfriend and I usually spend about that amount each week on the two of us…and maybe a quick, cheap trip to the store if we forgot a thing or two, but that includes all of our meals for the week except for one night out.

    Thank you for posting your prices! Sometimes I feel like spending $50/$60 on groceries in a week is way to expensive but it’s good to see that I’m in the ballpark of someone else.

    I definitely got the blackberries and Larabars on sale at Publix today too! Have a great night!

    Great shop! Thanks for posting everything. I just bought that new macadamia Clif bar, too. I can’t wait to try it!

    The marathon sounded like a lot of fun :) I’m glad you got to take a nap this afternoon, too.

    Soooooooooo relieved you did not throw away the butterfinger!! I wholeheartedly approve of the hidden fridge chocolate stash 😉

    I have been following for a little while and I have enjoyed your posts. I am so jealous of your grocery trip! Here in eastern NC I have to drive an hour to hit up a Harris Teeter, 3 for Whole Foods and Trader Joes! I do have the basics, but not the fun uber healthy stuff!

    I have to thank you for ideas eating for one, my husband just deployed and I have never lived alone before…I had no idea where to start! I enjoy your energy.

    I also have to just say how jealous I am that you have a white chocolate macademia nut clif bar!!!!!! I’ve never seen those!

    i totally hide my chox in the butter cubby as well, lol. happy to see the volunteering was so fun! what a great place to marathon, eh?
    and i’m happy to have some comparison as to what others spend on groceries. makes me feel a lot better when i check out those receipts.

    love the globes and red carpet, yay! and so happy heath ledger just won…though we all probably figured it. he was sooo great in that film, however. as for other wins, i always pick MY faves, which dont tend to get it. tina fey, alec baldwin, and 30 rock will be takin home some tv stuff i bet.

    That is quite a take home for groceries.

    Your lasagna looks really good, I think I may use your recipe really soon!

    That lasagna looks awesome! The chocolate stash is impressive, I think I might finally be at the point where I could have that kind of stash around!

    What size is that whole wheat flour for only $2.99?! I don’t think I can even get a small bag of whole wheat flour for less than $5.00 here. I think I would be scared to list out what I spend on each item like that, it would look like alot of money!

    dude, that was the greatest grocery post ever! i love how you listed the prices!

    and the chocolate stash in the butter spot: GENIUS!

    I too love Publix! I saw they had a sale on Lararbars and am going to stock up tomorrow! Working on my shopping list right now…;)

    Love love love your healthy version of lasagna!! That would really hit the spot.

    I also loved reading your post about the marathon, my friend ran it and I am wondering if I will see her tomorrow morning at preschool drop off to hear about it. I can’t even imagine…that is awesome you volunteered!

    Awesome recipe – I just might even be able to get Charlie to eat ground turkey with this one.

    the lasagna recipe looks sooo good, funny thing is that I actually have some zucchini and squash that I wasn’t sure what to do with… thanks so much for the recipe!

    crafty lasag work! i LOVED reading about your marathon cheering yesterday, too…that must have been SO fun. it really sounds like everyone appreciated your support, too, and that free pass to disneyworld alone was worth it. i can def see how all that cheering could be a work out!!

    I think I stalk you too much on here. lol so I made lasagna tonight and it was amazing. I copied your recipe but made it my own and added a few things and took away a few things. You should try putting some rutabaga slices in there….sooo good. :)
