Today was awesome. Era and I went shopping for our Thanksgiving menu. First, we went to Target to replace the food processor that he broke. Take all my appliances away and I could get by with the food processor. I felt so lonely without one!
Next, we went to Winco because I love their bulk section and the prices are okay. Today's discovery: bulk corn chips with flax seed in them. REPEAT: they frickin have Fritos with flax seed in them! So good. I was dreaming of making frito pie with them. Maybe next time.
Next was Fresh and Easy where they have the inexpensive olive oil. They also had boxes of cereal on sell for 15 cents! Era only wanted two. I would've gotten at least twice that much. Oh well.
We ended the trip by driving up to Clark's Nutrition, where I bought 2 containers of silk nog, 1 container of rice nog, and West Soy's chocolate peppermint stick (never tried it before). The holidays are lonely without Holly Nog because that stuff tasted insanely good with some booze. I also discovered that the place now sells Dandies! YES! Now, I just have to figure what to do with them because last time I just ended up eating them out the bag.
This store is getting to be seriously awesome. They got Teese recently, now Dandies, and looky what I found today:
Yeah, it's a crappy cell phone pic, but that is 1 gallon's worth of Vegenaise! Seriously. I contemplated getting it, then realized I don't have an army living with me. But it's awesome to know I could purchase the stuff if I ever had to make a lot of pea salad!
So, I've finalized the Thanksgiving menu. It's not mini because I have a lot of stuff to make and it would take way long. Plus, we're entertaining, yo!
