If you bumped into our family at the grocery store, you'd probably see us with one of those humungous car-shaped grocery carts that are impossible to push. Tim can't stand them, but I usually convince him because the girls love it in there - laughing all the way.
Here is what you would find in our cart:
PRODUCE - We like fruits & vegetables. We eat bananas, berries, melons, tomatoes, avocados, broccoli, peas, carrots, asparagus, corn, sweet potatoes, and pineapple. All 4 of us. We would eat produce all day long if we could. Unfortunately, good produce is expensive and hard to find. Whenever we can, we buy organic. If the price differential is too much, we buy regular.
BAKERY - We make homemade bread in our bread machine several times a week. Today, I made it twice - one loaf for lunch, one for a bedtime snack. That said, we don't make all our bread from scratch. We buy rolls, bagels, french bread, sandwich bread, buns, and more. We don't, however, buy cookies, muffins, cupcakes, cake or cake mix, pies, pancake mix, or waffle mix. I make all of those things from scratch - healthier, more affordable, and tastier.
If we could, we'd buy all of our produce and dairy products from local farms...and all of our bread products from a real bakery. We're on the road so we do the best we can - grocery stores can be hit or miss.
Do you buy your bread or make it? What kind of milk do you drink and why? What brands of cheese and ice cream do you prefer?
