if I have extra money-
nuts for a trail mix

I know I am a little over budget again this week, but my doctor says I need more iron in my diet. I tried an iron supplement, and had an allergic reaction to it, so I am going to have to get my iron the old fashioned way!

Also, the bread flour is pretty pricey. However, I was looking back in my post, and the last time I bought bread flour was 3/4/08! 10 MONTHS AGO!!! So theoretically, this 25 lb bag will actually cost me .69 cents this month, or .17 cents this WEEK! At that cost it is worth it for me to buy it in bulk once a year. With that figured in, one could argue that my actual total this week is 19.05 instead of 25.87
