Grocery Geek, March 22nd

Yesterday was such an amazing day.  I will write more about it in my next post, but one of the things we did was go by the Farmer’s Market in our “big town” yesterday.

I met someone in person that I am friends with on Facebook that lives near our little town.  She knew who I was right away. We talked for a long time and she told me that I can buy grass fed beef from her anytime!  I can just go to her ranch and get some!  It’s so awesome to have a local rancher to buy from!

Also, I met a family that are pig farmers.  I talked with them for a long time and I became friends with the mama on Facebook.  She and I school similarly and we just seemed to have a lot in common.  I’m thinking about joining their pork CSA.  We’ll see!  Either way, I will plan to buy from them in the future.

I bought a couple pounds of grass fed ground beef (2 for $13) and a pork roast.  Now that I know what they have there, I will probably buy more in the future. I had just already bought groceries!

These are the groceries I bought at HEB (via curbside):

  • Seventh Generation toilet paper
  • Batteries
  • 12pk Topo Chico

  • HEB organic sprouted bread
  • HEB natural reamer
  • 2 blocks HEB cream cheese
  • 2lbs HEB butter
  • 2 blocks Kerrygold butter
  • 1lb Tillamook medium cheddar
  • 2 packages Hormel natural salami
  • 15oz HEB ricotta cheese
  • Annie’s pizza pockets
  • Frozen pie crust (I was going to make my own but decided to buy it this time)
  • 1 dozen Farmhouse eggs

  • 1/2 gallon Silk Coconut milk
  • 1/2 gallon HEB organic Almond milk
  • 2 gallons HEB organic whole milk
  • 2 HEB uncured ham steaks
  • 16oz HEB sharp cheddar

  • Annie’s snacks (36 pack)
  • 2 packages mini graham cracker pie crusts (for dessert for Bible study)
  • 2 bottles Central market organic Italian soda
  • Duke’s mayo
  • 2 packages True Lime mixes
  • 1 can HEB organic corn
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk (Bible study dessert)
  • 1 bottle organic lemon juice
  • 10oz plantain chips
  • 4 boxes Annie’s mac n cheese
  • HEB toasted sesame oil
  • Bragg’s liquid aminos
  • 2 boxes stone ground coarse corn meal

  • Organic baby spinach
  • Organic Italian salad
  • Mushrooms
  • Pink lady apples
  • 2 packages sweet potato fries
  • Organic strawberries
  • 6 bell peppers
  • Bag of broccoli florets
  • Organic celery
  • Bananas
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 zucchinis
  • 1 bulb of ginger

I spent $200 at HEB for 2 weeks (also, I have a lot of food here already, so I really bought more than I needed to!).  I spent $25 at the farmer’s market.  Quality meat isn’t cheap.  Luckily we don’t need a ton of meat because we still have a lot of venison and I have some chicken here as well.

I love grocery shopping.  Haha.
