Produce Haul

Minus the torrential downpour/straight line winds/sirens that were ear-numbing, my trip to the grocery store this afternoon wasn't too bad.

You'd be surprised how many shoppers took off when the storm came rolling in. Me? No, I wasn't about to leave a full cart of goodies. You have to have priorities. Some people save their purse, their children, I save my produce.


Pretty good haul. Does having fresh produce stockpiled just "make" you want to eat better? It does for me.

Today's stash consisted of:
apples
bananas
grape tomatoes
blueberries
sweet potatoes
baby red potatoes
carrots
kiwi
spinach
iceberg lettuce
broccoli

I think we are set for awhile. Some of this produce will be used in some new recipes this coming week. Think - spicy shrimp, tomato and sausage kabobs, chicken florentine pasta, and sweet potato fries.

My stomach is rumbling just thinking about it.

  2. Produce is my favorite thing to shop for! When I get low, I run to the grocery store immediately. At least in the summertime...for some reason it's not as tempting for me to inhale the produce in the winter.

  3. I need to get a pretty big loot of fresh produce in order to gear up my excitement to eat it. But when I have great produce on hand I crave it and try to incorporate it in every meal! Num!
