We were returning from a quick trip to L.A. on Saturday.  We got food for lunch in the car, but then traffic was so bad between L.A. and San Diego, that our return time was pushed back three hours!

We didn’t make it home for dinner as planned, so we stopped by the store and got more food for dinner in the car.  We didn’t have a lot of variety in food that day, but we also didn’t spend a fortune going out to eat due to unforeseen circumstances.

(To see the groceries we bought for this week’s meals, go here.)
