Yup. I know. I’ve done the unforgiven. I’ve jumped the shark. I’ve stayed too long at the party. Er. Well…the fact of the matter is…my notebook with my shopping list was underneath a ton of stuff in the front seat of the car (to be distinguished from the ton of stuff in the back end of the car). So, I didn’t quite have it handy when I wrote my gushing CSS post about the Frozen soundtrack. Oopsie.
And…while watching one of my gift card purchases from iTunes (Gigi with Leslie Caron…one of my faves)…I remembered that I had finally unearthed my notebook…my lifeline for this holiday season with recipes and lists and reminders and more lists…and more reminders. Seriously. When I’ve…umm…misplaced it a few times in the last few weeks…there was some cause for SERIOUS panic. It also has the deals for the week, which luckily (for us), seem to have a vaguely Tex-Mex theme at the end of December. Yay! No paying $3 for one avocado when I need three to make guacamole.
So, without further ado…here is la list (Items needed for the partay are denoted with an *):
Avocados 88 cents (and they promise large ones)*
Buns (of the hot dog and hamburger variety) 10/$10* (for the boys if they don’t want fajitas)
Coke/Pepsi 2 L $1 each wyb 6
Skirt Steak (the proper steak for fajitas) $4.99/pound*
Milk/orange juice…gallon $3.49
Sour cream, 16 ounce, 4/$5*
Kroger cream cheese 10/$10
Cheese, 8 ounces $1.99*
Wolf brand chili 88 cents each (limit 4) (Friday-Sunday)
Cantaloupe 99 cents each
Half pork loin $1.99/pound (for the meat factory bee-sheen)
Niagara water, 24 pack, $1.99
Boneless, skinless chicken breasts $1.68/pound*
Green cabbage 4 pounds/$1
John Morell smoked sausage 97 cents
Bar-S meat franks 89 cents* (see above about the buns)
Frank’s Hot Sauce 5 ounces 89 cents (We had to get a rain check on the first day of the sale–Friday–for this)
Mission 20 count flour tortillas 2/$4*
In addition, I have to manage to procure 3 red onions, balsamic vinegar, oranges, 4 green peppers, possibly stewed tomatoes (I need two cans and think I only have one), waffle ice cream bowls, vanilla ice cream, limes from Brookshire’s (huge and 33 cents each), diced tomatoes, and cilantro.
I may cut out the waffle bowls and the vanilla ice cream if I can’t find ones I want to procure. We have other ice cream flavors already.
