Food for thought

Don't get too excited about this, its more about food than thought I think.  The dreaded day has come.  The day that I need to go grocery shopping.  *dun dun duuuuuunnnn* For some reason that is just not my favorite task in the world.  I don't even have a good reason for dis-liking it, I don't think i'm scarred by my mom leaving me at the grocery store or anything as a child. I think it's just making the (accurate) list, the going to however many stores to get the things on the list, and then unpacking it at home.  I was spoiled at the old house because there was a h-u-g-e pantry, so I didn't have to be as careful with my list and "oopsie I already had one of those" ordeals was not so bad.  Now, I have to be very conscious of what I've got, cause I have such limited space! Anyways. I was doing this hot mama's hair last week (LOVE how it came out btdubs. excuse me as I toot my own horn.)and we were talking about grocery shopping.  I was thinking about how people's lists probably vary so much.  Like their "must haves" in the fridge.  So I thought it'd be fun to compare alittle.  Lets pretend we are "fridge swapping" for a day...pantries too. You would be pretty garenteed to find:

- coffee creamer
- celery, green peppers, onions & banana peppers (these make everything awesomer than it was to begin with!)
- condiments.  (so interesting to think that some people wouldn't have 5 dressing choices, 2 types of mustard, soy sauce, hot sauce, lemon juice, bbq sauce, the whole nine taking over their fridge doors. hmm.)
- sweet bologna
- salsa

My pantry usually always has

- granola bars
- tortilla chips
- canned chicken
- crackers
- nesquik
- cream of chicken/mushroom soup

you most likely WONT find

- spaghetti noodles
- mushrooms
- hamburger rolls (at least when we need them)
- ricotta cheese (see parenthesis above)
- soda

Boring post? Maybe. But it was something that was swirling around in my head. :)  Wonder what I'd find in your fridge....

Here I go to the grocery store.  If you see me, give me a giant hug and tell me it's almost over.  


  1. (Do I get a donut if I comment?) Your pantry/fridge sounds like mine, as per our convo. Except I'll add in there some sour cream, lettuce (always), apples, bananas, and the baby's bottle of juice (coming soon to your fridge as well ;) ) may toot your own horn as loud as you want, because you are amazeballs with hair and I am just loving my 'do. Total awesomesauce. (and that will end the weird bloggy slang)

  2. This is a fun post! It's always interesting to see what are other's people staples and must have's. We always have feta cheese, hummus, cucumbers, yogurt, and mustard (must never run out of mustard!!!) in our fridge. And actually for me, grocery shopping is one of my favorite things...maybe I should do your's for you. ;)
