Grocery Trips in Review

The Boy and I hit up Costco on Tuesday ... only because Hubby took a road trip to Ocala to see his sister. We originally planned to go on Monday but the Boy opted to spend time with some friends so we went on Tuesday instead. I went to Trader Joe's on Monday, which, in hindsight, was pretty dumb on my part.

Oh well.

I love Trader Joe's ... my wallet, not so much!

But I can justify it the majority of the time, just as long as I stay under $50 ... and I can't tell you the last time I did that.

However, there are some things that we just can't buy anywhere else that's acceptable.

A few of those things:

frozen macaroni and cheese

frozen cooked shrimp

decent, inexpensive wine

onion salt (!!)

and, of course, that riced cauliflower

Of course, I didn't buy all that stuff but a bunch of other things ...

Grocery Shopping Week in Review

It's been a while since I've shared a grocery trip ... mostly because I haven't been shopping a whole lot! Hubby has been going more often than me and he just doesn't buy a lot ...

We've also not been meal planning OR prepping a whole lot. This cancer stuff has really gotten us all tangled up in our life. Ugh. NOT to mention, I'm also posting more on the new site so make sure you come check that out as well! The Mark and Jan Show!

So, what the heck! I went to see my dad Friday after work, and as always, stopped at Walmart to pick up a few things for him and grabbed a few things for us ...

Quite an understatement.
