Thread Starter 
I need to go get groceries tonight. I think we're out of just about everything! So i was wondering what was on everyones grocery lists for this week! Maybe i'll pick up some yummy new ideas for a new recipe Here's what's on mine so far:

Boneless Skinless chicken breasts (you know those big frozen bags of um)
Crutons
Baby Spinach
Salad Dressing
Thin Spaghetti Noodles
Chips
Smart Heart (that healthy butter- it's good!)
Pudding (sugar free)
Yogurt
Fruit (not sure what yet!)
Bread from the bakery
Deli lunch meat
Vitamin D milk (for Colin
Lactaid Fat Free milk (for me)
Freschetta Frozen Pizzas
Minced black olives
Fat Free Refried Beans
Ortega taco sauce
Healthy Snacks (i like those sugar free / 100 calorie packs their yummy!)
Whole wheat hamburger buns
Condensed Milk (for colin's vietnamese ice coffee)
Ground Turkey and Ground Beef
Deoderant (haha guess that's not a food but i should pick some up anyways!)
Tissues
Cat food
Ziti (i'm going to make baked ziti this week i think)
Shredded Monzerella


ohhh i'm sure i'll add some stuff in a little bit too i'm looking around online for some yummy recipes to try

humm we still have a good bit of stuff for spaghetti sauce/etc and things like that so i don't need any.

I need some pop. And fruits & veggies. Chicken because my stomach's still touchy. Saltines. Campbell's Chicken & Dumpling soup. Ummm....mom needs her flax cereal. Dad needs lunch fixins'. And, believe it or not....mom just got groceries earlier this week!

I am the same way with fruit as you are it seems I won't decide what I want till I'm there, then I pick from what looks the best. It's hard to find a grocery store that has good fruit.. I go to a grocery store that is high priced for my fruit, and a low priced store for everything else.

Those bags of chicken are great

I don't eat as healthy as you, but I've always loved unthawing those chicken breasts, and following the recipe on the back of a Campbell's Cream of Mushroom can.. rice, chicken and that cream of mushroom in a dish.. super simple and always good.

Hmmm, good question..

Juice
Laundry detergent
draino
cat litter
milk
bread
english muffins
hair creme
raspberries
red peppers
salsa
strawberries
sunfower seeds
tomatoes
yogurt
pasta sauce

Notice there's nothing really to make dinners with I suck at making dinner.

that's exactly what i do with my fruit. i try to get fruit that's in season and man....i swear sometimes i could live off of fruit!!! i love it there's always a fridge full here- i love making fresh fruit smoothies too / oh and my baked ziti recipe i want to try is off of the back of a can for Hunt's 4 Cheese Spaghetti Sauce- i hope it turns out well!!! I'm also getting some stuff to make my sister's famous tortilla bake and some chicken parmigino i think maybe oatmeal rasin cookies too! i love to cook!

Well i'm about to head off to the grocery store- i'm taking my nephews along with me (they can help carry groceries) i've already added more to my list. geesh we'll see what i come hope with
post #11 of 27
Good question... I had a list in my head of stuff I needed to pick up tomorrow, but I seem to have forgot most of it.

some stuff was...
pop - Dr. Pepper and Pepsi
shasta soda
juice
fresh spinach
fresh mushrooms
onions

..maybe some lunch meat from the store deli, depends on their prices. And whatever mysteriously jumps in the cart while I have my back turned. (I make DH go grocery shopping with me because he's picky.)

I just bought groceries the week before last, so aside from stuff to drink and fresh veggies, we're good here.

Perfect for the hot humid summer: (unless you hate these fruits)

Watermelon juice: 2 cups watermelon, 1/2-1 cup water, 1 tray ice cubes, then blend. Works with milk, too.

Papaya shake: same but use papaya & milk instead, add 1 tablespoon condensed milk, blend.

Just made asparagus at home for the first time ever. It was sooo good: drizzle in olive oil, salt, pepper, roast in oven 10 min.

We're headed out on vacation so no cooking for me! We did pick up some frozen pizza and things for our house sitter, but I don't have to cook that!

Well..I got back from the grocery store around 10 (my niece went with me and we just made a night of it we're soo lame) i definitely wound up with more than was on my origional list (when i got to my sisters house i looked though some of her lit & fit cooking magazines and found a few recipes i wanted to try so i added more.)

Uhhh fast foward to a few minutes ago- i made some sort of Chinese Pork n' Noodles out of that magazine and wow....umm interesting i can't decide if it's good or bad.I should really stop attempting to cook Asian food. I can do Vietnamese food faily well (Colin's 1/2 Vietnamese so every time we visit his parents i LOVE to cook with his mom and learn) Chinese food...well that's another story! I should really stick to Russian and Italian foods

Lot and lots! I decided to do some bulk cooking and freezing this weekend so I bought stuff to make my favourite meals:

8 chicken breasts
whole tomatoes
diced tomatoes
tomato sauce
artichoke hearts
bamboo shoots
water chestnuts
canned salmon
canola oil
bunch of cat food
couple bags of cat litter
shampoo
benadryl
spare ribs
stirfry beef
ground turkey
bacon
ground beef
capers
worchestershire sauce
marjoram
decaf coffee
milk
eggs
egg whites
cottage cheese
yogurt
parmasean cheese
fozen berries
frozen veggies
rice
oatmeal
3 gallons distilled water (for my CPAP machine)
lettuce
tomatoes
cherry tomatoes
oranges
apples
bananas
pears
mushrooms
green pepper
green onion
white onion
potatoes
carrots
red wine
white wine
orange juice concentrate
pearl onions
shallots
bread
spiral pasta
egg noodles
alcan aluminum foil

The shame of it all is that while my cupboard and fridge are full right now, both will be pretty much empty by tomorrow or Sunday because I'll have used it all up to make my frozen meals.

But once I have my meals made and frozen, future shoppings for the next couple of months will be really cheap.... fresh produce, milk/dairy and cat related stuff.

Things I forgot to buy:
dinner rolls
turkey lunch meat
alfalfa sprouts
soy ice cream
jam
lamb chops
smoked salmon
cucumber
raddish
sugar snap peas
trash bags

Romaine & red leaf lettuce, baby carrots, walnuts, parmesan, fresh croutons from Whole Foods Market, Briana's red wine vinaigrette dressing, fresh corn if it smells just right... and for dessert, whatever berries look good.

Have to do this in two trips as the basket on the electric cart is smaller and so there is less to carry. Beginning of the month so had to get toilet paper and we are almost out of paper plates. (Large size lasts 3-4 months.) What else - ice cream and sherbet, apple sauce, chocolate (seems to be on every list ), personal hygiene products, items from the bakery clearance rack (ice sugar cookies!), juice, and grapes. Tomorrow I get the rest of the items we need (frozen entrees and other things).

that's what we did- you will really save money that way too!!! we recently got an upright freezer (frost free- so we don't have to defrost it an all that garbage- we got ours at best buy- colin had some gift certificates for there(his brother works there) so he saved those up and got one a few weeks ago.) We LOVE it- we can buy things in bulk at Costco or the grocery when they're on sale and save that way. Also- if you don't already get the Sunday paper with cupons- get it!!! It takes maybe 10 minutes once a week to go through them -and the money you save at the grocery store really adds up!
