I think most people are naturally snoopy.
Why else would reality TV be such a hit? Everyone else wants to know what everyone else is really doing. Well, sometimes. Does anyone care about the Kardashians anymore? Are they in syndication yet? Am I really old, referencing pop culture from 5 years ago? Who’s hot now? Boo Boo somebody? Unless it starts with El and ends with Mo, I’m clueless…
Here’s my reality: Grocery shopping on Sunday morning.
Stylin’ wardrobe choices: jammies, dollar store necklace and pink cowboy boots. Classy, no? Honey Boo Boo’s got nothing on us…
And the loot…
Bananas, carrots, basil, broccoli, yellow pepper
Mini vege corn dogs and regular vege corn dogs, WW bread, raw cashews, grapes, apple juice, green beans, egg beaters (for the kids)
Milk (organic whole for Miss Rae, almond for the boys and coconut for me), Foccacia bread, 2 Kashi cereals, 2 Mom’s best cereals (the only golden graham-ish, cinnamon toast crunchish cereals I’ll buy), frozen peas, zucchini
Unpictured: WW pastry flour, yogurt for kids, baby shampoo, and flour tortillas
Total? $104, which is pretty average for us to spend each week.
What will I use said groceries for?
Sunday night: homemade Mac ‘n cheese with roasted broccoli
Monday night: corn dogs for Matty B and the kids (I have board meeting, so won’t be home)
Tuesday night: panini sandwiches
Wednesday night: fajitas
Thursday night: spaghetti, meatballs and salad
Friday night: burritos (always…:)
Saturday night: peanut noodles and roasted green beans
We don’t always stick to the meal plan. Sometimes what’s on the schedule just doesn’t sound good. Sometimes I really want Baja Fresh. Sometimes Miss Rae demands cornbread and chili to go along with her pink cowboy boots.
And that’s reality.
