Food News:

Aldi's had a great sale on fruits and veggies. Took advantage of that an now I'm stocked up for the week. Kind of bored with my morning smoothies so I bought a different vanilla flavored protein powder from Walmart. And I've been checking out vegan food blogs for quick budget-friendly meals for the week. Going to be a great OP week. :^:
