My wife and son were great to agree to share this SNAP Experience. Our daughter away at college couldn't join in. We've kept to our three-person food spending limit for the week and have just enough dollars left to cover a second gallon of milk and some lunch meat or more breakfast cereal. The teenager gets to make that decision. He opted for five days of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, knowing that his favorite sliced turkey and ham from the supermarket deli would have shot the budget. We're enjoying five crisp, sweet Macoun apples, and would have gone back for more, but not at $1.59 per pound. Only bought one fresh vegetable, asparagus. Best buy of the week was frozen veggies on sale for a buck a bag. We bought two of the Birds Eye classic blend of peas, corn, green beans and carrots. A dozen eggs are good for at least one breakfast and a dinner with Rice-a-Roni.
