I took a quick peek at the upcoming weather forecast and it’s looking good. Just two days of temps in the 30s and we’re onto the 40s! No looking back here. 🙂
Alex – ever the local celebrity, was asked to show up at the annual pet expo as a tie-in to their “K9 Olympics” theme. So he talked all things golden retriever and Olympics.
He ended up being quite the draw – and their booth won first place!
When Alex wasn’t hamming it up for his adoring public, he was investigating all the other displays
EEK I say this with no shame, give me a snake with zero venom that blows bubbles and chocolate and I’m STILL not going to touch the thing. Snakes creep me out bigtime.
He was on the news, again, because the TV crew came back the second day of the expo specifically to get footage of Alex. His celebrity is hot I tell you. I should go into business being his agent. Any sponsors, please contact me.
I’ve gotten a couple emails from people asking to show what I pick up in a typical week at the grocery store. Since we tend to eat a lot of the same things, I snapped a picture from this weekend’s haul.
We buy a fairly large amount of organic food except when it’s either a low pesticide fruit/veggie (like bananas) or is ridiculously expensive and out of season ($7 for a small head of wilted looking broccoli? No thanks).
We have more quinoa/corn pasta, spaghetti sauce, grapeseed oil, milk, greek yogurt, rice, pecans, eggs, coconut, snap peas, half n half, smoked string cheese, polish sausages, peppers, broccoli, bananas, onions, and limes. Grocery bill: $70.
And I finally grabbed an up-close picture of the sausages for those interested:
I definitely prefer these plain unflavored ones over all their other ones. They’ve become a weekly menu item because they are so easy to make.
I’m still catching up on sleep. Yesterday I felt dead most of the day. I have to admit, I actually am prefering this semester’s school schedule. It seems easier to have classes later in the week. Before I was always rushing since I had classes usually Mon/Tues or Mon/Wed but now it’s spread out a bit more. Of course, it’ll get even better in a few weeks when the semester is over. So excited for the Summer break!!
What are your weekly grocery staples? Anything I should loo for next week grocery shopping?
