Grocery list obsession

I printed off this 'ultimate grocery list' thinking it would help me remember what I need to buy and keep things in order. No. I give it a fail. Although it GENERALIZES things it doesn't give you much room to write specifics, besides I like shopping for deals and writing prices down. That's how I make my grocery budget. Now that hunting season is here, budget is even more important, something that Corey forgets.

Thursday is my favorite day because of all the new flyers that come out with all the deals for the next week. It's awesome. I like making my list and getting my recipes and cooking them.

WHOA! What? Who the hell took over my freakin'  blog.

Just kidding. It's still me.

I have made a point of bringing my lunch to work and so far so good. Brilliant right? It also means that I have to make supper the night before in order to have dinner the next day. Corey makes food that is lame, except for when he makes fish. That's it. Oh and Chicken breast. YUM! Also. There is a trick to this. If you make something awesome you have to make LOTS otherwise there are no leftovers and that's pointless. I did that on Monday and had no leftovers and had to eat Pizza Pops. (shrug)

So now, I'm compiling a grocery list, since Friday will be grocery day and I must have awesome lunches. That's the way it has to be.

Sigh. I got completely sidetracked while writing this blog and now I forget what the point of this post was.

On another note, I have two ginormous zucchinis that I plan on turning into muffins later, maybe, hopefully. Oh wait, I just remembered I can't since I don't have all the ingredients. - adds to grocery list.

I totally know what you mean....we just spent close to $800 on food when Ryan got back home cause we had eaten our house almost dry when he was gone.

Also, I have a GREAT recipe for homemade pizza pops.. here it is (cause if I don't do it now, I will forget again lol)

Dough: (I use my bun recipe, I think you have it already)

Filling: Whatever meat, cheese and veggies you like and then put sauce on it to make a paste.

Take handful of dough and flatten. Put filling in the middle, but keep away from edges (if edges are wet they won't stick together). Fold over and push edges together. Bake at 350 for 10-15 min until golden brown. They freeze great!

I usually make pizza pops with bannock :) I'll try your recipe too though, it sounds yummy too!

I suppose those groceries will last you a while though :)
