If there is one thing I don’t like doing, it’s grocery shopping. It’s the arduous task of picking up the essentials for breakfast, lunch and dinner in order to make it through the week. It’s not exciting, I often don’t stray from the norm, because when I do it results in a trip down the chip aisle. Plus, I have to go first thing in the morning to avoid the crowds, because Crowds + Kelly = bad news.
My weekly trip to the Loblaws at South Keys includes a stroll down the produce aisles; a stop at the deli counter for low-fat turkey or ham; a stop at fish counter for the “freshest” catch; rye bread, yogourt, skim milk, low-fat cheese, canned tuna, frozen pizza (I love the PC Blue Menu Roasted Vegetable and Goat Cheese), and some household items.
Boring right? So how do we make it more exciting? It requires research, planning, foresight. Not easy when you’re both working 60+ hours/week, but we’ve made it a priority. We’ve made it something we’re both interested in and passionate about.
So while I often don’t look forward to grocery shopping, it’s a lot easier when I have a new recipe in hand, and when I know I’ll be going home to cook it with my husband later that week. ~kM
