This and that

May 4th, 2013 at 03:47 am

DH and I have been grocery shopping for the past two nights. We do Aldi one night and County Market the next. I usually look at the grocery fliers from both places, plan a menu, and then make a grocery list. I think we spend a lot on groceries, but we eat a lot at home and most of our meals usually have leftovers for either another meal or for a lunch or two.

A lady I know doesn't go shopping until they are totally out of everything. It's kind of odd -- she seems proud of that fact, but then admits they go to fast food places to tide them over.

She thinks I'm rigid because we have a schedule for shopping. But, I like to know we have food in the house and plan a menu.

She has admitted they are having money problems. I wonder if her pell mell attitude to shopping and cooking is also her attitude in saving and investing.

Meals for this week include:

roasted chicken tenders
scrambled eggs and grits
sloppy chicks (sloppy joes made with ground chicken)
baked turkey breast
tuna cakes
turkey (left over) and couscous

The next item has nothing to do with money, but I was highly amused. A lady I work with has a small farm and horses. One horse leans on the fence and has loosened the wire to the extent he can put his head under it, stretch it out, put a leg through, then another and another and gets out of the fence without tearing up the fence or hurting itself. And you ask, where does this traveling horse wander to? The front yard because the grass is longer and hasn't been grazed. Guess he thinks the grass is truly greener (and longer) on the other side of the fence!

    That is a funny horse story...they seem to have their own personalities. That one seems pretty smart and clearly determined.

    See, it's creatures like this who make it impossible to believe that animals don't think. That horse has clearly spent a lot of time thinking things over to get what he wants to get.

    Scottish girl, grits are ground corn you cook with water. The southern part of the United States are famous for them. I cook them with water and then add Half and Half and some cheese for breakfast or brunch. For supper sometimes I saute' some green onions or scallions to add to them. They are a very reasonably priced side dish.

    Creditcardfree and LuckyRobin...I just thought the horse story was too cute not to share. They are smart and do have personalities.

    I love grits with butter for a breakfast side dish!
