Hubby and I went grocery shopping yesterday. Usually we go every week, but this time it had been almost two weeks since our last trip. (We were stocking up because we had a coupon for 10% off our entire order.)

Sometimes our bill can be super-high, especially since Hubby eats meat and I eat a lot of meat substitutes--so we have to buy two main dish-type foods for each meal!

Anyway, I won't bore you with the lame-o details of everything we bought (like toilet paper and hand soap), but here's a quick list of some of the food items:

Produce: bananas, red grapefruit, red delicious apples, red leaf lettuce, onions, russet potatoes, cucumber, cilantro, garlic, asparagus, lemon, lime

Canned/Boxed Goods: kidney beans, black beans, chickpeas, spaghetti sauce, tuna, saltines

Seafood Section: shrimp, scallops

Refrigerator Section: Earth Balance vegan margarine, soy sausage patties, tofu, pre-mixed protein drinks, eggs, refrigerator biscuits

Freezer Section: frozen corn, chocolate torte dessert

Bread aisle: loaf of whole wheat bread, crispbread

That's most of it, though there were probably a few items I missed. Some of them (like the chocolate and the eggs) belong exclusively to Hubby. Others (like the tofu and soy sausage patties) are just for me. And some things (like the onions and asparagus) we share together.

It seemed like an awful lot of food at the time! Of course, I did really stock up on things that will last (like beans) because of that coupon.

Seems like you got some nice things from the store. I want to taste the soy sausages, but I am scared that I won't like them.

Have a Happy Easter

Hey girl, you did a GREAT job at the market! I'm just doing a big of blogsurfing before I head to the market myself. Lots of fruits and veggies are on the list for me!! Just a quick question - how do you eat your tofu? I'm always curious to see how other people prepare it. I grew up eating it (plain with oyster sauce, added to stir-frys, fried, and lately pureed into soups and protein drinks), but am always looking for new ways to prepare it. Have a good day!!
