Grocery run

Tylenol Cold & Flu meds got me on my feet long enough to get to the grocery store (Rob’s away, else he would have gone). Figured I’d pick up enough food for the better part of 2 weeks. Unsurprisingly, it’s cheaper to eat like this. Froze the bacon we already had on hand, which was hard. Oh bacon, I’m gonna miss you the most.

Here’s a list of what I bought because I’m bored and cranked on cold meds.


  • Bananas (7)
  • Clementines (2 lbs)
  • Flat of cubed melons + pineapple (on sale)
  • Blueberries, 1 pint

Fresh vegetables

  • Baby spinach (1 lb)
  • Celery (1 bunch)
  • Carrots (organic, 2lb)
  • Leeks (3)
  • Anise (1)
  • Zucchini (3 small)
  • Ginger
  • Garlic (5)
  • Cabbage (1 large)
  • Butternut squash (1 med)
  • Spaghetti squash (1 med)
  • Potatoes (3 lb, small)
  • Eggplant (1 large)

Dairy (and whatnot)

  • Goat cheese (plain)
  • Feta cheese
  • Butter (cultured, 2lb)
  • Milk (2%)
  • Yogurt (1 ltr, plain, 6% mf)
  • Tofu (extra-firm, 2 blocks)
  • Eggs (2 doz)

Everything else

  • Tortillas (whole grain, flax)
  • Bread (whole grain, flax)
  • Crispy flatbread (honey & flax)
  • President’s Choice “Ancient Grains” cereal (2 boxes)
  • Sundried tomatoes (3oz, dry)
  • White kidney beans (3 tins)
  • Red kidney beans (3 tins)
  • Black beans (3 tins)
  • Chickpeas (3 tins)
  • Vegetable stock (Campbell’s organic, 3 tetrapaks)
  • Short grain organic brown rice (best rice ever)

Already on hand…

  • Basically everything else including onions, sweet potatoes, various rices, barley (hulled & pearl), quinoa, dried beans, a plethora of dried herbs & spices, various oils & vinegars, a somewhat alarming array of hotsauces, a big ol’ chunk of 2 year old cheddar, parmigiana cheese, peanut butter, tahini, olives, dried mushrooms, egg noodles, rice noodles, pasta, tomato soup, etc etc etc.

This is gonna be awesome.
