Not a bad list for a week's worth of groceries.

  • Half-pound of good prosciutto. in this case, Whole Foods "American Prosciutto"
  • Thing of good smoked mozzarella
  • $4 chunk of really good Gouda
  • Best bread you can find, couple small loaves instead of one biggie
  • OJ and Coke Zeroes
  • A breakfast yogurt for each day of the week; I already have some wheat germ
  • Honey roasted fresh in-store-grind peanut butter
  • Store brand of all-fruit raspberry jam
  • A few apples
  • Tortilla chips and a small container of Mango/pineapple fresh salsa

With this list, I ate breakfast and dinner really well (still bought food at work for lunch, mostly for convenience), and enjoyed everything I ate. It's light on fruits and v's but it's honest. None of the food went bad, or even flirted with going bad, before I ate it, and it was all entertaining to eat. It's not cheap, but it's also not generating rotten food in my fridge.

Well done, groceries.

(Edit: to be clear, there's plenty left over too, and I don't even think it'll rot while I'm away next week.)

  1. This entry just sparked an intense desire for brie and apples on ciabatta. And Trader Joe's doesn't open for another 11 hours and 45 minutes.
