I was just thinking about this today!

 

This week's groceries:

eggs

tortillas, corn and wheat

Greek yogurt

lettuce

rice cakes

crackers

cheese but I couldn't find any for the right price and skipped it

coffee

fruit, in season

green vegetables

 

Everything else is in the pantry/freezer, or I'm waiting for it to come into season in the garden!

 

 


Happy and in love with my family!

I wanted to post a thread similar to this one called "Share your unique grocery list items!"

I tend to buy the same basic items every trip (oranges, cucumber, spinach, onions, potatoes, chicken, fish, cottage cheese, milk, crackers, mac and cheese, rice)....

and I've been getting burnt out on the tastes. There is not any room in the budget for extra stuff, so any unique suggestions to swap something for something more interesting are highly appreciated.

It depends on how you cook with this stuff, but some swaps that I came up with off the top of my head -

 

oranges > pineapple, mango

spinach > kale, swiss chard

onions > get a different variety than you normally buy; they have different flavors, shallots

potatoes > get a different variety; if you always buy russets, try fingerlings or yellow wax

chicken > turkey or pork

fish > shrimp or crawfish, shellfish

crackers > pretzel chips

mac and cheese > buy plain macaroni and make your own sauce

rice > couscous
