Grocery List

This week has been somewhat of a bust in the food department. I'm just back from a month in Utah with a totally empty kitchen, a husband who is still away on business, a bunch of doctor appointments for Charlie, family visiting and its been an average of 102 degrees every day this week. Oye! My usual coping mechanisms are not in place and I've been caught off guard. Pizza happened, cheesecake happened, ice cream cone and gelato happened and wine - two bottles - happened.




Tomorrow is Sunday - the first of the month. Its a golden opportunity to prepare for the month ahead. I usually have a well stocked kitchen geared towards raw and vegetarian food prep. This month is different because I'll be buying almost everything I usually have on hand.  So here it is - the comprehensive Smaller Sarah grocery list. I've been working off of this list for the past 9 months for my food shopping.

This is pretty much our list, too, minus the animal products, of course. I *cannot* seem to keep fresh veg in the house. No matter how much I buy on Monday, it's gone by Thursday. The fruit is also sometimes a problem, but I cannot keep up with the veg. I suspect we are all pigs and will just eat until it's gone! I'm going to buy a bushel of kale next Monday and see. LOL! j/k.
