Day 1 Begins with a shopping list

Tonight I’ll be ordering groceries, and I want to be able to prepare meals for the next two weeks. Christmas is included in those weeks, and that menu is already set. At a Christmas/Chocolate expo at the NY State Museum a couple weeks ago I bought myself a delicious bottle of salted caramel port, and home made pasta and pasta sauce. Definitely on my shopping list will be some ground beef to cook up and add to the sauce. Pictures will be forthcoming! :)

I always hesitate to buy fresh fruits and veggies because I’m afraid they’ll go bad. As a result I have exactly.. nothing in my house right now. I’ll definitely be adding some avocado to the list because life is better when you’re green. The problem, of course, is that they go bad so quickly. I’ll add three because I’m pretty addicted and just have an avocado heavy weekend.

Since moving I haven’t restocked many of my staples. As a result, I’ll be adding basics like peanut butter and jelly to this list.

Side note- this blog is going to be fun. It was a little depressing doing a search for crockpot recipes for a small pot. Many of the recipes may as well be subtitled “For those of you who are in the process of dying alone, here is a meal to enjoy before you die and have your face eaten by your many cats.” This single lady is enjoying life… she just wants to do it in a more budget-friendly fashion.

Over the next two weeks I’m going to make a tomato bisque soup, a rice pudding, bbq pulled pork, pot roast, mashed potatoes, a twist on shepherds pie, and spaghetti with meat sauce. This will be in addition to my usual sandwiches, and occasional eating out. :)
