TJ and I went to do some "supplementary" grocery shopping tonight, to get some steaks to grill for dinner. We went to Larry's Market (your neighborhood snooty grocery store) and I had a total of 4 things on my list - Kraft 2% sliced cheese, steak, eggs, and dishwasher detergent. We walked out of the store $124 poorer. (And this is after TJ did the weekly shopping yesterday!) There was just so much random yumminess out and about at the store. Local frozen blackberries (so I can attempt protein shakes for breakfast), Rainier cherries, and cucumber sushi to name a few of those tempting items.
I guess I know where I'll be eating for the next week!
Today I made mashed potatoes with chives and sesame cucumber salad from the latest issue of Cooking Light. And I have leftovers, so YUM. The exciting thing is that I busted out the mandoline slicer for the julienne cucumbers. That thing rocks, though it is *so* dangerous. But given my even poorer knife skills, the mandoline may be safer. Boy is that blade scary and sharp! Thanks West and Mel for the very cool wedding present!
Maybe this eating at home thing isn't so bad after all - I just need to go to the right grocery store... No more crappy Safeway for me!
