I’m not quite back in the swing of things. I’ve been feeling like I’ve been grocery shopping every day for a while now – mostly for lack of planning. At the beginning of the week, I thought I had gotten past this phase. But, then we ran out of milk, so a forth trip was required.
On Monday I went to BJs. The baby is phasing from Puffs to Cherrios. The two round containers are banana chips (left) and shrimp (right). It’s a bit odd that they look so much alike. The paper wrapper is cod, which went into last week’s fish stew with the shrimp. The dark chocolate chips were to make a peanut butter pie. It came out well, and tastes exactly like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. But, that’s a bit much in a pie. I also got 8 gallons of milk and two 24-packs of Gatorade that didn’t make the picture.
Tuesday I went to Stop & Shop. Most of this was on sale. Though, the trip was driven by the yogurt which I had forgotten that I needed to make banana bread with my seconds bananas purchased last week.
Friday I went back to Stop & Shop to prep for the weekend. Ground turkey was on sale. Soup was on sale for 50¢ each if you bought 12.
I also went to the farm stand. The raspberries and tomatoes are local. The others not so much.
Then, despite buying 8 gallons of milk on Monday, we were out. So, I went back to Wegman’s on Saturday and picked up a few other items as well. This time I took a picture of the milk before I took it out of the car.
This is our first week with a full slate of fall activities. So, its a bit of a trial run.
I’m going out so they’ll have take-out pizza.
Kids: ???, but it will be fast
Adults: ???, we’ll see how the week goes
Adults: Homemade pizza
