It was looking desperate.
No milk. No eggs. No fruit of any kind. The peanut butter was dangerously low, as was the bread and orange juice.
Trying to find something for breakfast was like an episode of “Chopped” – oats made with water, sunflower seed butter and reduced sugar grape jelly with a side of pre-cooked turkey sausage that I found in the depths of the freezer. Thank God, I had some half-caff coffee or I might have been marching to Burger King for a Croissan’wich and cup of joe.
Instead, I bundled up Miles and marched down to Kroger.
I guess that’s the perk of a workday that starts at 10 a.m.
We blazed down the aisles, tossing in bananas and clementines, spinach and broccoli (for Spinnocoli Pizza), flour and marshmallows (for holiday treats) and frozen meals and Kroger’s Private Selection ice cream (for Mark).
An hour and $93 later, Miles and I had everything on the list … and then some. What can I say? I really wanted grapes … and Diet Coke.
What are your grocery staples?
Mark has to have for the week: bananas, orange juice, milk, beer, cereal bars, frozen breakfast items (i.e. Jimmy Dean sandwiches or waffles), frozen meals for lunch and a frozen pizza.
Me? I need at least two kinds of fruit, baby carrots, fat-free hot chocolate, peppermint tea, Progresso light soups (vegetable barley is my fave), eggs for breakfast and wheat bread.
