I live in LaLaLand. I enjoy good fresh food.
strawberries -- $1/pound in season
blueberries -- $3/pound in season
olive oil -- I haven't the exact price, but I pay about $20 for 6 liters in Costco.
you cant keep vegetables -- DUH!!! I buy fresh vegetables depending on what I make.
(I buy at the "ethic" supermarkets, about 1/3 the cost of the National Chains.)
chicken breasts -- Fosters, $2.99/pound at Costco.
shrimp -- 100/200 count, shelled, raw, 12 ounces for $6. I make Jambalaya, about 12 servings.
steak -- USDA Choice Rib Eye steaks, on sale for under $5/pound.
cheese and milk ... expires -- Whole Milk, $2.79/gallon, stays fresh in my refrigerator for 10-12 days.
My dinners cost $2 to $6 per person. A LOT cheaper than crap in a restaurant.
