Grocery Run
Tues 19 Aug 2008

I have been meaning to start the blog back up... I've been terribly lazy about it this summer. So here I am! I went to the grocery today and figured I'd revive a defunct meme.

The Midweek Munchies was a veg*n (vegetarian and vegan) meme for women that was pretty stong back in 2006. Then the owner, Harmonia, had to step back from the Internet so she handed the meme over to me. And I did absolutely nothing with it! haha.

But now that I'm looking at it again, I think I'll change it to vegan (instead of veg*n), update the homepage and clear out the guestlist. Start fresh, you know.

Midweek Munchies, a vegan meme!

What yummy vegan foods did you bring home today?

Midweek Munchies: What RIFT is contributing for the week

Today, I shopped at the local Fred Meyer, and this was a pretty typical grocery run for me. 71$

Top of the List: 24-pack of Coke, toilet paper (7th Generation), ramen (Top Ramen, oriental), coffee (Seattle's Best, bright) and peppermint tea (good for calming the upset tummy).

Produce: Oranges for the guinea pigs, organic USA apples, organic grapes, organic raisins.

Frozen: Peas, tater tots, Morning Star crumbles, Amy's California burgers.

Also: Soy milk, Powdered sugar, Italian Dressing (Newman's Own) and bulk couscous.

Usually I get the ordinary apples, just making sure they say "Washington" or "USA" on them... but today, I looked at all the Shiny-ness, all of a sudden, I am grossed out by that coating they put on. I walked right past the shiny, to the little organic section. Nice, normal looking apples!

Also I took the time to study the bulk section. Usually I search for the wheat glutten, and ignore everything else. I noticed the pearl barley was cheaper than the bags, good to know since I use that in my soups.

I'm also excited about dried chickpeas, millet, wheat berries, brown rice, a couple different lentils. These will be crock pot creations, eventually.

Okay, now I'm gonna go work on the Midweek Munchies homepage...
