My (very small) grocery list [Sep. 20th, 2006|05:22 pm]
Grocery Lists

[Current Mood |hungryhungry]
[Current Music |Blindspot- Lull]

We've been cooking on a budget lately, and haven't bought ANY groceries for the past fortnight. We had quite a store of frozen meat, bread and vegetables (we have a large chest freezer, and two fridge freezers), so we hadn't needed to buy any food at all while the man of the house was off work.
We needed a few things this week, and this is what I picked up;

1 bottle of pepsi
1 refill pack of detergent
1 block of butter
about 650gms of hoki (a firm white fish, it was reduced to clear, and that much fish for $3.40 is definitely a great buy!)
1 can of black V (an energy drink, similiar to red bull)
1kgs of frozen mixed vegetables
1 kingsize block of chocolate (for making brownies, heh)
1 tin of pineapple slices
4 rolls of toilet paper
5kg bag of high grade flour

I think we have a serious hoarding problem, they're always stocking up on stuff, so we're going through our reserves slowly, coming up with some interesting meal ideas! Lots of condensed soup based casseroles and pies, and making lots of muffins.

CSA list and Whole Foods list [Aug. 20th, 2006|11:05 am]
Grocery Lists

This is what I got at the CSA:

10 ears sweet corn
4 small green peppers
small bag green and red okra (well, it was a purpley red colour)
about 2 big and 6 smaller tomatoes
1 pint yellow pear shaped tomatoes
red kale (? it's a green, maybe chard)
4 little pumpkiny looking squashes
we were allowed to pick 12 peaches, but with the absence of rain, there were no ripe ones and many of them were teeny and didn't look very good. So we ended up skipping the peaches. We didnt get any fruit this week. Blackberries ended last week and, though we got 2 musk melons last week, we got none this week. The tomatoes more than made up for the lack of fruit.
We also bought 4 lbs burgers (12 burgers) free range, organic local beef.

At Whole Foods:

Wellshire Farms bacon (was disappointed they are still out of Niman Ranch)
two packages smoked salmon trim (cheaper than regular smoked salmon and great for bagels)
organic whole wheat sesame hamburger buns
organic sourdough bread
organic peanut butter
12 pack sesame bagels
1 package Organic Valley cream cheese
1 pkg 365 brand butter (for baking)
1 pkg organic butter (for eating)
1 pint organic valley heavy cream
bulk organic baby mixed greens
3 pack organic garlic
regular peaches sale
Earth bananas
regular honeydew sale
regular watermelon
sheeps milk feta
365 brand tricolour pasta
365 brand speghetti pasta
bulk organic long grain brown rice
bulk organic rolled oats
365 brand pinenuts
organic sucanat
vanilla extract
organic grade B maple syrup
5lb bag regular whole wheat flour
5lb bag regular unbleached flour
365 brand chocolate chips
Fantastic foods boxed tabouli mix
Westbrae Naturals yellow mustard
Kashi TLC wheat crackers
Organic Evening Primrose oil capsules
kids dino shaped vitamins
2 bars 365 brand soap (unscented and lavender)
bag popcorn (and when I got home I found where I had stashed the last batch I bought. I have TONS of popcorn now)

I think that's it! We have plenty of meat so we should be fine in that dept. Whole Foods is mainly for basic produce when the CSA doesn't give me something and for my grain products (like rice and pasta).

Meal plan for Aug 6-11 [Aug. 11th, 2006|08:16 pm]
Grocery Lists

Last week's meal plan got lost to the filial visit, so this week I was determined to get back on the ball. I had an idea to try having a selection of cold salads for flexible, pre-made dinners. We've needed a solution to the "I want to bike every night and eat home-cooked food, too" problem we've been having this summer. There has also been the "Kevin reacting in horror to the idea of making any more heat in the house," another problem solved by having cold salads.

MY mom came down to visit and when she looked in shock at the state of my food supply she took my grocery shopping.

2L skim milk
orange juice
diet pepsi
whole wheat pita bread
lots of cans of soup
ramen noodle bowls
red leaf lettuce

I must admit that I feel ashamed that everyone has these awesome lists and the awesome stuff they make. Sooo jealous. I'm a 21 year old Canadian university student with no cooking skills. I go to the grocery store like once every 3 months lol

Meal plan and grocery list, July 22-29 [Jul. 29th, 2006|08:37 pm]
Grocery Lists

This week went to hell, so far as meal planning went. I can try blaming this on my son visiting, but it's just as much about the other factors that are inhibiting our cooking: this heat wave, and our sudden biking passion. We're living on restaurant food this week and next, until we can recover our momentum.

July 9-14 Meal Plan and Grocery List [Jul. 17th, 2006|01:47 pm]
Grocery Lists

We made a trip to the Costco recently, where among other things we stocked up on lamb. You can get a nice New Zealand leg there for a lot cheaper than at Whole Foods. Kevin butchers the leg down to a couple of "roastlets" and some cuts suitable for stew or curry. On Sunday he roasted on the the roastlets and I just enjoyed the last portion of that meal from the freezer today for lunch. Mmm.
