It’s squash week at my house. I’m sure you already figured that out by this week’s peek in my cart.
All kinds of squash in different shapes and sizes. Ready to be cooked up into some fabulous new recipe that I’m sure I’ll share with you once I figure out exactly what that recipe will be. The possibilities are endless.
Besides squash, I stocked up on all kinds of produce for various meals I’ve planned for the week. Market Basket is pretty reliable for fair produce prices. Green beans, Romaine lettuce, Gala apples, and the broccoli were all on sale and I needed them anyway. Don’t you love when the foods you need go on sale?
The mushrooms were a little pricey at $2.99, but I needed them for our supper this evening. I guess if I had bought them whole and took the time to slice them, they would’ve been cheaper. I was feeling a little lazy today. Pre-sliced mushrooms it was.
Stop & Shop didn’t do much for me this week as far as gas points goes. A major bummer. Gas is outrageous right now and any way I can save some money at the pump is a good thing.
I did grab some shrimp rings that ended up costing about $2.33 each after you figure in the value of the gas points I earned for purchasing them.
I figure if I have to pay for overpriced gas, I might as well get some cheap shrimp out of the deal. It makes the whole thing less painful. Especially when enjoyed with a glass of wine.
Besides the shrimp, I bought a ridiculously overpriced ($3.99) box of frosted corn flakes with a picture of Patriots player Gronkowski on the box. Per Jeff”s request of course.
We’re not supposed to eat the cereal, mind you. The box shall remain untouched in its original form for all of eternity. Per Jeff’s request, again. Sigh.
Besides shrimp and overpriced cereal that we will never eat, I grabbed some sale orange juice, grapes, Oreos ($1.88 woot!), Yoplait yogurt, and some Pennsylvania Dutch noodles for tonight’s supper.
Nothing too earth shattering this week. Just the basics. How about you? Find anything great in your grocery stores this week? Are you cooking up any amazing squash recipes you care to share?
