A little bit of the everyday

May 26, 2009

Are y’all tired of clothing posts, yet? How about we change gears to something even more mundane? Groceries!!

That’s right. Groceries are wonderfully life-sustaining and delicious. I’m happy anyway.

The Target run was ostensibly only to get *ahem* stockings, otherwise known as thigh-highs, for my skirt suit. I’m gonna need to be demure and professional-like sometime this week. As you may know.

In the checkout lane, I remembered that last week I promised myself one bag of candy. (What? I never buy candy.) I’ve been suffering from Snickers mini/Kit Kat deficiency. This could turn into a serious problem, and prevention is the best defense! Or something like that. Non-spending fail, but that won’t be what I think when I reach into the candy pocket of the purse and find Transformer Snicker Minis! It remains to be seen if the yellow nougat freaks me out.

As usual, giving this mouse one goody meant that it almost turned into a major case of impulse buying: the baked sea salt and vinegar chips were irresistible, Colby Jack string cheese sounded perfect …. luckily, friend was on the phone with me and told me to Leave Now. I even managed to put the goodies back, as well.

The trip to the local grocery went a little better, nutritionally speaking. Fresh corn on the cob was on sale, 4/$1. Corn = summer, and good deals on corn are even better. That’s what the green beans (1/2 lb), oranges (2), bananas (3), whole wheat bagels (6), and eggs (12) are for. My grocery shopping can be a bit haphazard, if you can’t see a meal in there, not to worry. Neither can I.

    Hahahaha. I love those trips to the grocery store where I buy random things, and realize none of them can make a meal. Like this past weekend. Managed to spend $70 at Whole Foods and when I got home, I realized I didn’t have any grains or carbs to make dinner. I got milk but no cereal. Peanut butter but no bread. Bunch of fruits and veggies, but no meat. I’m so out of it! And all that crap cost me $70! Smack me now.

    LOL, that’s what my grocery shopping looks like, too. Helter skelter!

    My suggestion? Eat breakfast for dinner!

    L.A. Daze: Hah, I’m glad I’m not the only one. Seems like everyone shops so purposefully around me! I food shop like I clothes shop: randomly and without any direction/outfits to wear with the item in question.

    Ginger: And a darn good suggestion that is, too. Omelettes are good all the time.
