In the Cart


It has been a DECADENT week. Since Bestie’s wedding last weekend, I’ve had a gorgeous, relaxing week of not cooking, eating out every meal and enjoying delicious cocktails. But alas my body has been feeling the indulgences and I’m happy to be back cooking more at home this week!

I thought you all might want to see my groceries for the week. My fridge was bare except for an eggplant and a Larabar, so I needed everything!

During my week of decadence, I especially enjoyed the fruits de la mer! If it swam in the ocean, crawled on its floor, or washed up on its shore; I ate it this past week.  Typically, when grocery shopping,  I would buy shrimp or salmon, but not wanting to pull a Piven; I skipped all things with gills.

    1) What market is this?
    2) Are those tortilla’s whole wheat?
    3) What do you use the veggie soup mix for?

    1. Salad:
      1) What market is this? Stop n Shop in the ‘burb
      2) Are those tortilla’s whole wheat? YES, and low-carb and AMAZING (only 50 cals each!)
      3) What do you use the veggie soup mix for? (usually as a dip mix for greek yogurt dips or an addition to baking chicken or fish. Spring Vegetable is my favorite flavor!)

    Please do my grocery shopping for me. Please. You are so organized. And yet-the combination of items you made with this bounty-not appetizing to me. I think I definitely have become your TROLL!

    1. Seriously. If I had more than 2 readers; I’d hope that someone would come to my defense and love my weird-ass food combinations; but since its you, Mom and my friend Bean reading; looks like I’m out here twisting in the strange-food-combination wind.
