How do you shop for groceries? Do you go once a week, every day, somewhere in-between? Same store all the time or multiple stops?
If you are like us, you frequent three different stores for groceries. In our case, Stew Leonard's is the "big shop" for the week, then every few weeks I hit Trader Joe's, and then peppered in amongst those visits are pit-stops at our local DeCicco's. If you are paying attention, you can deduce we appreciate fresh food and like to cook.
(Which is why, again, we had to redo our kitchen and give us a place to cook we could both fit in without bumping into each other. Yes, yes, I know...I swear I will post the renovation soon. The kitchen is not done yet, though.)
We don't create a weekly menu when we shop, or go to the store with a list (unless we're out of some staples). Whatever is in season or on sale or we're inspired by, we buy. Then we just figure out what to make with what as the week goes by.
Tonight's Dinner Surprise ingredients:
- chicken breast from Stew's
- green and yellow squash
- salt & pepper
- chicken broth
- fresh chopped basil (a little)
- fresh chopped parsley (more)
Verdict: Thumbs up from both C and O, barely any leftovers. I think I should have added more lemon juice just before serving.
