Grocery Shops in Review

It's been a few weeks, I know!  I haven't been shopping a whole lot which is probably why I felt the urgent need to hit up Costco last week ....

And then I came down with something late Thursday ... not sure if it's a cold or what not. All I know is that I have been self medicating very heavily to kick it out of my system as fast as possible ... that could be why I have a foggy brain? Whatever ... Hubby comes home Sunday night, the Boy and his girl have gone to her parents house and I'm looking forward to sitting on the couch and watching yet another Christmas movie this evening!  I like being alone!


Ok, ok, let's get on with what I bought this week, shall we?

Luckys Market - December 20, 2017

And then there was the Saturday morning rush shop while I felt like crap ...

Aldi - December 23, 2017
