I now realize the only day I can't ever go to the Trader Joe's on 14th Street unless I go exactly when it opens on a Sat or Sun. There were at least 60 people lined up outside at about 8:45 this morning.
I went to Whole Foods first - since it opened at 8.
Here's a rundown of my yummy loot. I always try to bring my own bags - especially when I'm not going to a store just around the corner like I usually do. This is my little sassy (old lady) cart. It folds down so I can store it and it really holds a lot.
I spent almost the exact same amount at both stores. It was expensive (around $100 total) but I did get a lot of stuff.
From Whole Foods:
Roasted Garlic hummus
Flat leaf parsley
Also hidden under the broccoli a hunk of parmigianno regiano and Emmenthaler (which was on sale)
Organic ground beef (dinner tonight!)
Boneless skinless chicken breast
Frozen crinkle cut fries (dinner tonight!)
some pre-sliced peppers for salad this week
From TJ's - all sorts of goodies!
Sea Salt pita chips
Dark Chocolate Covered Edamame
Dark Chocolate pretzels
2 Luna Bars (to take with me on my trip later this week)
Whole wheat English Muffins (so much cheaper than Thomas' - even though I love them)
Frozen Uncooked Jumbo Shrimp
Extra Sharp Cheddar
Whole wheat pizza dough
Light Sour Cream
Plum Tomatoes w/basil
TJ's has a good selection of fresh flowers. This one was on sale for $3.99 and it was called "Rosy Outlook". I couldn't resist. I love having fresh flowers in the apartment.
I had myself a little snack. A serving size of the pita chips and some hummus.
I'm heading out again a little later to go buy myself some running shoes. I've never bought sneakers for a specific purpose so I'm interested to see what it's like to have the right footwear. I'm not sure but I think it'll make a significant difference to have a new pair of shoes.
You know what? That tends to be my basic philosophy in life. :)
