Dave and I hit up the grocery store on Monday. Originally I thought I would make Indian curry for dinner, but then post-marathon exhaustion caught up to me, in the middle of the grocery store, and I almost started crying just thinking about making dinner. Ridiculous, yes? Dave jumped in with a brilliant idea: gnocchi! Lifesaving. Dinner was gnocchi (boil 3 minutes), spaghetti sauce (leftover jar in the fridge), and broccoli (frozen). Dinner in less than 15 minutes, and my sanity intact.
Here are the other groceries for the week. We rounded out at $53.21. I’d still like to make curry later this week, but might need to pick up one or two things for it.
- giant bag of Eight O’Clock coffee beans
- 2lbs. white rice
- 1can diced tomatoes
- 1can tomato paste
- whole wheat macaroni
- 1 box gnocchi
- apple juice
- whole wheat flour
- 2 packages smoked turkey lunchmeat
- 2 packages cheddar cheese slices
- 1 small container greek yogurt
- 1 gallon milk
- 1 bag frozen green beans
- animal crackers
- 1 bottle mexican pineapple juice (Dave’s impulse buy)
- 3.5 pounds bananas
- 18 count eggs
Let’s talk eggs for a minute. Originally Dave and I just bought Walmart brand eggs, but recently I’ve just been kind of disgusted by them – the yolks are so dull. Shouldn’t yolks be yellow and vibrant? So we bought Eggland’s Best this month, hoping we might get some more brightly colored eggs. The verdict is still out if they’re any better.
Anyone else absolutely despise the feel of egg on their hands? I hate cracking eggs and getting slimy stuff on my fingers. Makes me want to gag.
By the way, last week we went over by $1.50. I just couldn’t say no to those Reese’s Halloween pumpkins!!! Holiday Reese’s are Dave and I’s kryptonite.
What’s something fun you picked up at the grocery store this week?
