Happy snow day!!
At least for those of you on the east coast!
The best part of this snow day so far? It hasn’t even actually started snowing yet! So it’s kind of like just another free day. Which is totally a-OK in my book.
So far, my day has consisted of sleeping in, hanging out in my PJs, eating pancakes, and watching TV. That is totally my kind of snow day! I guess I’ll have to do a few productive things later, but this is at least a good way to start.
Anyone else experiencing a snow day today? Do you actually have snow? They say it’s supposed to hit here at any time, and they are talking a few inches (which for VA is a lot), but I’ll believe it when I see it!
What’s in my Grocery Cart
So I thought I’d do something I haven’t done in FOREVER around here – talk about a grocery haul!
Now I don’t know about you, but I actually really love reading about what other people are buying. Mostly it’s because I’m nosy, but I also enjoy them because they always give me new ideas on things to buy or make for myself! So hopefully you find this enjoyable too.
I do want to mention that while we have plenty of staple pantry items in our house right now (beans, pastas, sauces, spices, etc), we were definitely lacking some of the staples or veggies to bring things together. I would say that this is a pretty basic haul for us in terms of things that we eat on a daily/weekly basis.
Also, all of this shopping was done at Wegmans. The only thing not pictured is some beer that Chris wanted, and considering that he’s probably going to end up drinking it while watching hockey with his friends, I didn’t feel as though it needed to be in the picture.
So here we go: Grocery Haul for January 20th, 2014!
– Individually wrapped chicken breasts (10)
– Individually wrapped pork chops (2)
– Quick cook oats
– Almond/Coconut Milk
– Unsweetened applesauce
– Frosted shredded wheat cereal
– Plain greek yogurt
– Frozen broccoli cuts (2)
– Smart Balance Olive Oil butter
– Mixed peppers (3)
– Cherry tomatoes
– Frozen green beans
– Chocolate Hazelnut decaf coffee grounds
– Romaine Hears
As for what I’m going to DO with these things this week, here is generally what I’m thinking:
Tuesday: Salmon with veggies and brown rice
Wednesday: Gnocchi with veggies and a tomato cream sauce
Thursday: Grilled marinated pork chops with veggies and couscous
Friday: Work event – so I’ll have to pick up something for dinner after the event
I hope that you guys find these hauls as interesting as I do. Maybe I’m just super nosy, but I’d love to see or hear about what your grocery trips look like! I’m always up for new ideas!
So tell me: What do your grocery hauls usually look like? What stores do you typically shop at? What is on your meal plan for the week?
