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.
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
Also: Soy milk, Powdered sugar, Italian Dressing (Newman's Own) and
Usually I get the ordinary apples, just making sure they say
"Washington" or "USA" on them... but today, I looked at all the
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
I'm also excited about dried chickpeas, millet, wheat berries,
brown rice, a couple different lentils. These will be crock pot
Okay, now I'm gonna go work on the Midweek Munchies homepage...
