Because I still have leftovers from a wedding reception, I was able to buy some different things to make some new recipes.  It's fun to try some new things here and there, but it gets expensive if you are buying spices and ingredients that you don't normally use.  It's worth it when they turn out well, though! 

How was your shopping trip?  Did you stay in your budget or get any good deals?  Link up and share!
