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.
