What wonderful foods did you bring home from the grocery store?

Midweek Munchies: What RIFT is contributing for the week

I had a relatively short list for Safeway yesterday, but still managed to bring home 80$ worth of food! And today after sharing a late lunch with my Significant Other at the Mongolian Grill (yum: veggies!) we went to the Thursday Farmers Market! (yum: more veggies!)

Some coke, and my usual lunch fixings, granola bars, hummus and chips. Some oranges and an apple for Tegan the guinea pig. And a bag of dried mixed fruit for both of us.

After that, almost everything I vaguely wanted was on sale, so I tried to stock up.

From the frozen isle, I got some green beans, broccoli tops, tater tots, Morning Star crumbles and "steak" strips. My SO had bought a few bags of the strips, and I accidently opened one the other day, thinking it was crumbles. I don't remember being terribly impressed the first time I tried the strips, but this time I've apparently been addicted. haha. Too bad they're so expensive: on sale they were 3$/bag. sheesh.

Filling the pantry with the staples: whole wheat pasta, rice, a bunch of dry vege soup mixes, and some couscous of the pine nut flavor, yum. Also got a new kind of vege bouillon, the Better Than Bouillon brand... I read that it's vegan, and I tried it out with some pasta as soon as I got home from the store. It tastes good, a bit on the strong side, I'll have to use less next time. (tho I may have misread the directions. that would be completely typical of me.)

And some odds and ends. Karo because corn syrup on corn bread is just crazy, but I like it. Dry lemonaide mix because I am sick of drinking plain water, and some cran-raspberry juice because it just sounded good.

When I was searching in vain for my soy nut butter (curse them for dropping yet another of my regular products), I happened upon a can of Amy's No Chicken Soup. hum, it says vegan so I'll give it a go. Expensive at 2.30$ humph.

The quick run to the farmers market cost 13$. We got more golden potatoes, zucchini, a huge cucumber, and a good bunch of basil leaves.

SO's mission for tomorrow is to bring home some pine nuts... I can't wait to make some pesto sauce!!
