Grocery Day Part 2

Saturday, October 11, 2008


Well shopping is over and groceries put up.I got extra tomatoes and made 2 quarts up for soup etc. Put some in freezer and rest in fridge to make my weekly soup tomorrow.Reminded me of my days as a young woman in North Carolina where I spent days canning what we grew.Often those days that was all we had to eat.Whatever I had canned. This was a little easier in that I wasn't putting up hundreds of jars.
I am always amazed at how much we spend at grocery store.I am thankful we can afford it but things are so expensive.Especially the healthy stuff like fresh veggies and fruit. I feel for the young people with families and others on tight budget.
i bought a few more cans of the new light healthy request soups for emergencies.
I had to explain to my husband brother why I an't go out for lunch with them tomorrow.Bill bowls with him every sunday and Karl and some others go to Cody's afterward to eat.Poor Bill has been making excuses for me.Which were true but not whole story. I have not gone out to eat anywhere like that in 8 weeks.I don't want to as I am afraid it will get me started and I want to get weight off first.That is my prime goal right now. At first he sounded a little hurt but was ok after I explained that later on but not now. No matter how good my intentions are I can not do well in restaurants. And I do miss it as we went out to eat often or Bill would bring home takeout when I didn't feel well.
We have been eating lunch out before we go to grocery store but I am very careful. I have 1/2 turkey sandwich with side of fresh tomatoes.
Well it is about time to fix supper.Tonight is every man for himself. I fix me something my hubby doesn't like.Like oysters for me tonight.And he is on his own. emoticon

    Kudos to you for doing so well on meeting your goals. It's really difficult to give up the fun and companionship of eating out.

Love those tomatoes put up for sauces, etc. Sometimes I like to make marinara and freeze some for my Italian menus. It's really a good way to take care of the tomato finds. They've been expensive here, so I am enjoying a reasonable price on them now.

Grocery Day

Saturday, October 11, 2008


Today is starting out good.Scales are down and that always puts us all in a good frame of mind.
I got a very nice call from a friend from the Tops group I left.Someone had told her I was losing weight and she called to say congrats.That was a nice surprise.
I was curious if I had lost enough weight to wear any of the things I haven't in a long time. It was a pleasant surprise to see I could.I found a pair of pants I haven't worn in a long time and they fit perfect. Can you see me smiling.
I attached my 5 ornaments to my Christmas tree for Christmas challenge. Will take a picture and put it on my spark page.In fact I will do that right now.
Ok Picture taken and will put it on page when I finish here.Hope the ornaments show
I have started reading some of the book "Lady in White" from web site that was posted on my BookWorms team. I will check and see about buying book.I read enough to see it might be interesting. Or I might let hubby buy it when I lose 9 more pounds.
I will blog more later.Nothing interesting right now.But then I am pretty much boring any day. And to think my buddy Debbie wants me to write a book.
I changed tree and ornaments don't show as well as I wished in photo but they are there
