I came home from Wal-Mart with a bunch of canned goods, which is really the only thing I think it’s worth the trip for. I did spot Kashi crackers for $2.50 but they didn’t have Honey Sesame flavor and I decided I don’t like the 7 Grain nearly as much due to the presence of onion powder. I got a bunch of beans, and some pumpkin (they didn’t have the jumbo cans 😥 ) and a few kinds of produce and other items like shredded cheese and frozen brussels sprouts and okra. Pomegranates were $1.50 and green peppers only $.75! Everything on my receipt was under $3.
I am excited to try this “new” find – collard greens in a can. Considering what a pain they are to wash, chop and cook (and that they are 3x at least more expensive than this can fresh), I thought it would be handy to try them this way, especially when the ingredients list is just collards and water and since we have horrible trouble with freezer burn (and I did check our freezer and it’s on the coldest setting)
For lunch I knew I wanted a chicken melt. I topped some High Five bread with the leftover white meat, some mustard and some of that spicy gouda and put it under the broiler.
Plus I had an orange. I was totally craving fruit today – perhaps because I didn’t have any yesterday?
Despite it being 1:30, I wasn’t terribly hungry – just moderate – so I stopped prep with just those two…
…..but 20 minutes later I felt hungrier than before I sat down! That happens to me sometimes.. So I finished off lunch with a pumpkin, pumpkin butter + Kashi Good Friends Oikos.
Now I am perfectly full 🙂
I’m going to crank up the Xmas music and clean the floors. Karen will be here at 3 for our Costco trip. Not sure what else is in store today. I am so thankful to have this week of downtime to catch up on the simple things in live.
