So the grocery ads are an abysmal flop this week. I mean there is a possibility that there is a good sale on Ribeye steaks at Freddy's this week, as it is 50% off, but they don't tell you off of what price. I hate it when stores do that. They just want you to go there and find out. Especially when there is no other reason to go there. It is on DH's way home from work, so he will stop in and check for me tomorrow. If it is a good price we will buy a value pack, because we do a like a good steak once 3 to 4 weeks, but I'm not willing to jump through hoops to get them. If they are what I consider a decent price then I will give him some grocery money and he can pick them up on Friday.
So, with the bad ads in mind, I went back and looked through the fridge and the backup fridge and realized I don't need as much as I thought I did. I just need some green onions, lettuce, tomatoes, fresh cilantro and parsley, 5 or 6 carrots, and 2 turnips. Maybe some zucchini or yellow squash if they look good and aren't dinky and fresh green beans if they look good, frozen if they don't. I still have plenty, and I mean plenty, of onions, garlic, and potatoes that I grew myself, as well as cucumbers, radishes, a giant parsnip, a puple cabbage, 3 carrots, a bunch of celery, a jalapeño, a fennel bulb, and 9 bell peppers (6 for stuffing, 2 for fajitas, 1 for pizza).
As for fruit, we have 9 lemons, but I plan on making lemonade with 8 of them, 1 lime, 6 pears, but 1 is questionable, 2 avocados, and 2 Pink Lady apples. I plan to buy some sweet apples since those are tart for making curries, and a case of oranges since these will probably be the last oranges of the season before they start being not very good again. Maybe some bananas or possibly something else if anything has a good price and depending on where it is from.
For staples, I need yellow cornmeal and unbleached pure cane sugar. For seasonings I need sweet paprika, smoked paprika, and Hungarian paprika. I'll only get one this week. Spices have skyrocketed. Maybe I'll just get the sweet. I'll probably have to order the Hungarian anyway, but I am on an Amazon freeze this month. I also need a big container of Italian seasoning. I need a big container of fine grain pink Himalayan sea salt, but that will probably have to be ordered, too, and it can wait until next month as I just filled the large shaker up with the last of my old container.
We are good on cheeses and yogurt and peanut butter. Well, I might need an 8 oz brick of extra sharp cheddar. I forgot to check for that.
I have a vague idea of what I'll be planning for suppers this week, but I'll sit down and flesh it out tomorrow morning. It's late and I need to get to bed.
