My List

I'm making out a grocery list....believe it or not, just about everything I had for the Reunion is now gone. We did eat good....didn't we!?!? ;-)

Anyway - I noticed I always start out with the same things on the top of the list....I buy them every time I go to the store, whether I need to or not.

1) Toilet paper - This is one woman that will NEVER run out of that paper gold!!

2) Coffee - I have a 1lb bag of beans on the counter......gonna buy 2 more, just in case.

3) Cheese - that is the one item we have left from the weekend, I don't care. I want more. I love cheese. Especially MELTED cheese. It makes me happy. I can never have too much of that.

4) Flowers - I love fresh cut flowers. Love Love Love. Last week was so hectic I didn't pick any up. That NEVER happens in this house. I have a vase I keep full in the foyer. I have a small table that usually has a large bouguet of roses - yellow are my favorite. I noticed last night - none, not one fresh flower in this house. That will change this evening. And yes, I do buy a new bunch everytime I walk past the floral department of the grocery. I have many vases.

5) OJ - I love orange juice. I have at least one glass a day. Usually two. And yes, I only buy one brand....Tropicana. If it's just me I get the Low Acid so it doesn't hurt my tummy. One time I was cleaning out the fridge and realized I had 2 full gallons in there. Good thing there's a 6 week shelf life! But can't help it....I push the cart past that section and automatically pick up a gallon.

So what are some of the items you HAVE to have on your list? What do you always make sure you have plenty of? /keep it clean folks...I know exactly where this crowd could go!/

1) Dieat Mountain Dew - I need my caffeine and that is my prefered format for it. in 24 oz bottles.

2) Cheese - I love cheese, really good cheese. And this close to Wisconsin you get really good fresh cheese. Not that funky California crap. Happy cows my ass, if they didn't keep stoned I don't know how anyone would be happy in California.

3)Pepperoni - Stapble meat product. This stuff goes with everything Pizza, Salads, Eggs, Sandwiches or just to snack on... with Cheese!

4) Water - I drink about a gallon of water a day and our tap water is damn nasty.

5) Absolute Mandrin Vodka - it mixes with the Diet Mountain Dew rather well.

CHOCOLATE - WE ALWAYS HAVE MORE CHOCOLATE THAN AN ARMY COULD FINISH IN A WEEK. Although right now this is killing me, with the lent no chocolate thing until Easter.

Cookies, specifically Keebler Chocolate Lovers. Recently I have taken a liking to the Keebler Elf Sandwich Cookies, double stuffed Fudge.

Cheese - I love cheese. Sharp Cheddar, yum

Chips and Salsa, somewhat healthy snack.

Flowers. I love fresh flowers. The trouble is, I only notice them when they're blooming, and forget to throw them out. My neighbours are often treated to the sight of pot-pourri in a vase...

3.Skim milk(2 gal) - got two growing flower buds at home.
4.Bread - the Earl of Sandwich must be a relative
Closely followed by
tortillas for making quesadillas

1. Toilet paper. I've got at least 16 rolls in the closet. But, ya just never know....

2. Coffee Mate. Plain. None of the flavored junk.
And, it's gotta be the liquid not the powder. ACK!

3. Coffee. We drink a LOT of coffee. To go with the Coffee Mate. heh

4. Mushrooms. Fresh or canned. Or both. I put mushrooms in almost everything.

5. Onions and fresh garlic. You'd think we were Italian. We go through garlic like...well..like toilet paper. heh

Diet Cherry/Vanilla Dr Pepper - New drink on the market and already my favorite, must have it in the house at all times.
Eggs - Usually buy them 3 dozen at a time as they are used alone and in recipes A LOT!
Juice - for the youngest boy
Milk - for the youngest boy (mama, moh milk?)
Parmesan and garlic Cheez-Its - They are addictive.

I buy my toilet paper at Sams club because I can get 94754837346 rolls for like $10 bucks.
