Sunday Shopping Wins

October 25, 2009

It was with great regret I forwent sushi last night.  I will eventually, I don’t have FB + her BF’s fantastic sushi skills, but I didn’t feel right dining out just to satisfy a craving.  (Ok, I shouldn’t have linked that, the sushi cravings are back!!

Anyway, in lieu of spending $20 on sushi or some such, I went grocery shopping instead:

Vons (aka Safeway) 
7 pounds of chicken drumsticks on 50% clearance
6.5 pounds of center cut boneless pork loin
1 (8-ct) pkg turkey hot dogs on clearance 
1 loaf whole wheat (Orowheat, my favorite!)
1 (6-ct) pkg English muffins
4 ripe bananas

Total: $25.61 

Walgreens [The assistant manager was a little perturbed because I pointed out that I’d stupidly printed over my coupon – it was mostly legible but I was prepared for rejection – but he took it anyway.  Nice guy.]

1 (24-tab) Zantac [w/$5 coupon]
Total: $4.68 + $9 Register Rewards printed up.  

That’s going to be enough protein to last well over a month and enough carbs for a week.  Now, at last!  I can try some of those delectable pork chop recipes I’ve been reading.  The freshly baked French bread loaves were tantalizing, but tearing myself away was worth the effort – I might never have made it to the meat aisle if it was in my cart.  Come to think of it, this is probably the 5th time potato chips were promised and forgotten.  Ah well.  Next time.

    Hard to resist those sushi cravings. My sympathies…

    And nice new logo. Either it’s new or it’s been there a while and I’m going blind. 🙂

    RC: I know, either I feed it or get over it. Eventually.

    But thanks! You’re not blind, the logo’s brand new, I changed the template before I got the new design set up.
