For the first time in longer than I can remember, I went food shopping last night. Alone.
And I was hungry. But I was smart.
I made a list. And because I usually dislike grocery shopping, I stuck to the list and got only what was listed to be purchased. Well, almost. I did stop by the deli and get some small containers of salad to go with the Vienna all beef franks with natural casing we were going to have for dinner. A nice deviled egg potato salad and a sun dried tomato and pasta salad. Yummy. And I didn't overeat. And I rode my bike for a quick three miles after I ate. To work some of it off.
Anyway, I got plenty of cereal so that the sons have plenty to breakfast on - especially after #3 Son comes home from college, a graduate, and hungry. And plenty of Mac & Cheese and Spaghetti Os - because that's mostly his diet. What can I say?
Fruit. I got fruit. Big juicy Navel Oranges and apples and seedless red grapes which even now sit chilled in the refrigerator, waiting to be snacked upon by whomever should need a snack. Little better on a warm Spring day than a handful of cold grapes.
And orange juice. With pulp. Because orange juice from concentrate sucks, if you ask me.
And ground beef. I plan to make my spaghetti sauce this weekend for Sunday dinner, which I haven't done in twenty years. Spaghetti sauce, that is. I haven't made my sauce in that long. But I DO remember how. And anyone who ever eats my sauce (especially on Barilla Pasta) will NEVER forget it.
It was a successful shopping trip. I think I may have enjoyed it, a bit. I may have to do this again.
