WEDNESDAY

Oh, Wednesday, you were good to me. I had projects strewn about the apartment, probably one in every room. I managed to finish hemming a pair of jeans, complete the meal planning and grocery shopping for the next week, make raw tacos for lunch, prep strata for this morning (currently in the oven), and make apple enchiladas. The enchiladas need some work, but they are still pretty tasty. I still have yet to finish a knitting project I hope to share with you and type up some of our favorite recipes. When I’ve used a recipe multiple times and know we love it, I type it up and keep it in a separate book full of my go-to recipes. Hopefully I’ll finish updating that today.

I try to do our meal planning and grocery shopping on Wednesdays because you get 10% off all of the “Health Market” food at our local HyVee so why would you pay more any other day? Right now most of our groceries come from there, a local place where I buy eggs and meats (or anything I need in a pinch because its merely blocks from our home), a very occasional trip to Walmart for toiletries, etc., and an even more¬†occasional¬†trip to Trader Joes (because I consider it “far away”). Is this normal? On a day that I have to go to all four, oy, I can barely get myself out of the house. To avoid going to Walmart yesterday, I bought toilet paper at HyVee knowing full well it was more expensive. If this were Twitter, you might see #firstworldproblems somewhere following that sentence.

What does everyone else do? Are you shopping around for the best deals/quality or do you just scoop it up all in one place?

And it’s strata time! I can smell it; oh the glory!
