Once-A-Week Shopping

Does anyone really do this?

I'm not one of those people who only shops
for groceries once a week.  I understand the convenience
factor but it's just not something that appeals to me.
Probably because I don't see grocery shopping
as a chore.  I actually really enjoy it!

Besides, I don't want to plan Thursday night's dinner on Monday.
I make multiple trips to the store every week.  Along with
whatever we need for the kids, the house, the cat, etc., I also
pick up the ingredients needed to prepare meals for the next
day or two.  I can sometimes stretch it to three if I'm
really planning ahead.

Today I will be shopping for dinner ingredients for tonight
and tomorrow.  This is the planned menu:


Egg Drop Soup
Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry
White Rice or Udon Noodles

and Chewy Coconut Cookies for dessert!


Spinach Enchiladas
Fried Mexican Corn
Black Bean and Salsa Soup

I'll be back for more shopping on Thursday.


  1. We shop once a week! LOL. But I am a vegetarian
    and a really picky eater. I have agoraphobia, so I don't like to go out much.

    Hubby is a control freak and makes a list and only buys whats on the list. I am undeceive and never know what I'd like/want anyway. ROFLOL

  2. You probably actually save alot of money that way! I make a list but it's only to define the absolute minimum I need to buy. :D
