food log: Saturday, March 6

PB toasts, milk
PB toasts, milk
I went to Mickey D's and to a movie with my brother but didn't take any pictures ($7.70)

I stopped at the grocery store and at the liquor store for party supplies - $92

I ate lunch at 3pm so I was not nearly hungry enough to eat dinner. Since I had a lot of stuff to prepare  for tomorrow's Oscar party, I nibbled as I cooked. The frozen shrimps I bought in Chinatown are really, really good and they were already deveined, saving me a bunch of time. They cost $12 for 2 pounds. I boiled them for 5 minutes in a cup of rice vinegar, a cup of water and 8 tablespoons of Old Bay spice. I will serve them cold with a garlic dipping sauce.

I mixed goat cheese, chives salt, pepper and the zest of a lemon together and filled hollowed out cherry tomatoes with it. Then I ate the leftovers on crackers.

Money spent on food today: $99.70
