I made a fair number of grocery stops last week – hitting all of the major grocery chains.

Early in the week I was at Wegman’s, primarily for milk.  Their price is comparable to BJs, and they’re much closer.  I also was low on baby carrots and bottled water (I haven’t bought that in years as for a while Stop & Shop was giving it out free in the summer.  But, we finally ran out and we do use it sometimes, so I hope this will last a while.).  While there I picked up a few other things.  The bag contains dried strawberries and pineapple, which were free with the weekly coupon set.


The next day I made a quick stop at Shaw’s for pizza dough (still haven’t found a recipe we actually like).  Bread & oatmeal were on sale so I got quite a few of each, and I picked up a pack of tortillas to have with our tacos for dinner.  I didn’t notice until checkout how 100% carb-loaded this trip was!


Finally, over the weekend I made it to Stop & Shop.  Just about all of this was on sale.  The exceptions being the bananas, parsley (green stuff in bag), and oregano (black lid).


Spring baseball ran into summer baseball (with a brief respite for our vacation trip) so its been a long time since I’ve posted a menu.  But, now that our evenings are more back to normal, I’m going to try to get back to it.  So, here’s this week.
