successful grocery trip! actually bought things i can make meals with. i’m going to make this tomorrow for everyone, http://www.kraftcanada.com/en/recipes/foil-pack-chicken-broccoli-dinner-88768.aspx minus the bacon bits and ranch dressing.
does anyone else do that though? completely “forget” to buy meal things and buy random things that do not go together at all? haha. i always buy too much snack things and too few supper and lunch things. today i made sure to get things though.
it was crazy busy in the grocery store. everybody is stocking up for thanksgiving (in a few weeks, can’t believe it’s so soon!) because they’re having good sales on turkeys, stuffing, etc. glad we went in the morning though rather than waiting until later because i bet it’ll get even more busier.
going grocery shopping tomorrow morning (finally, we have nothing!)
making a list at the moment but i’d like to try to find some new things. so what’s your favourite fruit/veg, packaged thing, whatever that you always like to have available/something you always buy!?
so i just went and bought groceries for myself because apparently my dad has no intentions in buying them anytime soon. it’s been two weeks once again since we’ve gone. he’s the one suppose to be buying them but whatever then.
- romaine lettuce
- red potatoes
- sweet potato
- a pineapple
- green beans
- life multigrain cereal
- a few halo honey graham bars
- whole wheat flour
- kashi chocolate peanut butter bars
- ground turkey
- low sodium chicken broth
- whole grain taco kit to make turkey tacos!
- oikos honey greek yogurt
- dark chocolate chips (plan on making banana bread)
- 1% milk
all that for $40 so not too bad!
yup finally got to go grocery shopping!
pretty big list because we haven’t gone in a while
(or what seems like a while).
just went on the biggest grocery trip of lifeeee! seriously haha.
posting a list of everything i got soon. just currently eating a very late super (9:00pm opps but just got home), just a sandwich lol.
“do you want some money to go get a few groceries with your mom?”
UM YES PLEASE. while there i saw my manager who gave me my number to do some survey thing online (i can’t remember what it’s called) and she said i’d be starting work either sometime this week or next so yay that’s good.
i ended up buying :
- FRESH pineapple (my mom brought home the god awful canned pineapple the other day and i cannot stand the taste of it haha)
- sweet potato
- a few peaches
- donut peach YES IDK WHAT THIS IS but it’s called a donut peach apparently.. well on the sticker it said flyer saucer peach but it was marked as donut. it looks like those mini donuts figured i need to try it.
- oikos strawberry greek yogurt
- egg roll wrappers (i want to attempt baked “pizza pockets”)
- original shreddies cereal (i know not the healthiest really but i’ve been craving it for a while now! and hey it’s not the worst)
yup not a very big shopping trip at all but any grocery trip is the best.
ah just got back from grocery shopping. just went by myself. i don’t know why but i love grocery shopping alone haha. ended up buying :
- baby carrots
- PC individual honey greek yogurts
- activia mochaccino (not the healthiest but it was on sale cheap…)
- skim milk
- cinnamon puffins (so excited to try!)
- hazelnut instant coffee (just so i don’t always have to go to tims)
- chicken breasts
not a very big haul at all really but didn’t need much. thank you for the suggestions though i’ve written some of them down. oh and i found quinoa there cheap! they now have it in bulk or theres a box of it for like $2.50 that definitely wasn’t there before. i’m going to try it tomorrow to see if i like it before buying more though.
and now i’m going grocery shopping yay!
i’ll post anything interesting i buy when i get back :)
why does grocery shopping always have to be a big argument?!
i wish we would just set a day and then go. i feel like i’m always bothering my dad or mom when i ask to go but hello i need food. does anyone else go through this? like they’re supportive but when it comes to me needing groceries it’s like “lol no”… -.- he thinks we go grocery shopping everyday apparently. like we’ll grab a few things but i haven’t gone “proper” grocery shopping in a while. i’m out of like every food. thankfully i persuaded him into going in a bit haha.
ah bought some new things today grocery shopping! :)
so much produce yayyy and not one unhealthy thing woo~
*read more for the list since it’s kind of long*
mini grocery haul from tonight :
broccoli, strawberries, organic spinach, arthur’s smoothies - strawberry banana & strawberry rainforest kinds (honestly soooo good! and it doesn’t have anything in it besides fruits. they’re expensive though $4.50 each on sale for $2.99 so i got a couple), bananas, red pepper, 2 mandora tangerines, pink grapefruit, walnuts, 2 blood oranges and a cucumber!
aw yay dad gave me some money to go to the grocery store.
off to go grab some things!
