I mentioned that I was okay with beets but liked the greens more, and he responded that he REALLY LIKES beets, although he eats the greens too.

My family always had vegetables and fruit when I was growing up, and I ate/liked them, but the first time I had actual fresh beets (rather than canned ones) was when my neighbor bought a share in a community-supported agriculture program and were getting more vegetables than they could use, so I bought some of theirs. I still haven't made up my mind about them. But in a root vegetable mix (like the root vegetable stew someone made at the ThanksLiving potluck I went to last week), they sure add really nice, vibrant color.

Anyhow. I probably bought whole wheat flour and fruit at my last trip to the grocery store, but I bought 3 different kinds of apples and some fresh collard greens at the Farmer's Market.

I rode in a truck helping my ex boyfriend haul sugar beets for six hours once in the Red River Valley of Minnesota/North Dakota. That was in 1996. We would drive this huge truck with an enclosed open bed in the back and follow alongside a tractor as it pulled the beets out of the ground in the fields. An arm on the tractor would drop the beets into the truckbed and we'd follow along til it was filled to capacity, then drive to a huge operation where there were these weigh stations. After weighing in, we'd dump the beets into an enormous pile, then repeat the whole process. It was grueling to ride that truck in a rough field and listen to the deafeningly loud thumps of huge sugar beets going into the back of the truck. Even more fun was listening to all the guys talking on their CBs to pass the time. The language was...colorful lol. I once broke in and said "hey, there's a woman present" which shut them all up at first. They were shocked to hear a woman's voice. Once they learned who I was, they carried on. lol

Just got back from buying three vegan Earth Balance Mac and Cheese boxes for my partner for a Christmas present. He likes those better than his dairy ones. he won't eat my nutritional yeast/sweet potato/tofu mac and cheese, but at least he'll eat the boxed vegan stuff lol.

In the end, only kindness matters. - Jewel

I'm curious if you made it home with just the tomatoes, or if anything else seemed to "jump" into your cart like what always happens to me...

@Blue Gingham --can describe spicy pickled okra? I mean like, do you get the slimey-ness? Is it sweet like gerkins, or sour? Is it crispy? Is it a particular brand?
I love those kind of relish-tray things!

Now I want pickled watermelon rind and crabapples! I already have an assortment of olives

It's not at all slimy. It's crisp/firm and only semi sour, like a firmer cucumber pickle might be. I got hooked on them after my local grocery store started putting them on the salad bar. The brand I got today was Tabasco, but don't let that scare you, it is really a very mild spice.

I'm with you...I love little nibbly things. I'm currently cooking a recipe with black and green olives and while I was chopping I ate...well, let's just call it more than a few.

I tried Vlasics spicy pickle slices on sale. they were good but could have used more heat. A nice bit of sweetness.

I love sweet gerkhins, but they can give me a weird cough reflex. Not like swelling or anything bad, just have to kinda watch how I swallow if that makes any sense.
Anyone else get that reaction?

*Lemons and Limes
*Tomatoes
*Romaine
*Hearts of celery
*Yellow and Green zucchini
*Portobellos
*Button 'shrooms
*Garlic
*Tofu
*Ginger root
*Horse radish root
*Split peas
*Dried white beans
*canned Water Chestnuts
*Frozen Asian Veggies Mix
*Almond Milk
*Milk
*Boca Burgers (the grilled kind)

I've got a mean trick to get the tofu very crispy, and it's not just a tofu press.
We get our eggs from a local farmer, so that's never on a 'grocery list'. I order a lot of burger mixes online so I can try their takes on meatless burgers, but so far I'm still liking the Grilled Boca burgers or a grilled portobello best.
Tonight we're going to go with zucchini put through a spiralizer to use as 'noodles.' with an Alfredo sauce. Hoping to try my hand at a raw chocolate dessert, just don't know which one yet, there are so many.

If you like spicy the Tabasco pickles are pretty mild. They were very good but kind of a letdown in the spice department.

I think I might know what you mean about the cough. If I inhale while I'm eating something vinegary it's like the vinegar gets inhaled and I cough. Is that the same thing that happens to you?

I miss grapefruit. I take medication that the grapefruit interferes with, so it's been a long time. And what a crazy good price on the mushrooms!

@Ladyjay -- I'd love to know how your tamales come out! I love tamales, but never thought to make them.
The grapefruits were disappointing. They actually tasted watered down, texturally good, just didn't have that grapefruit flavor. Watery

They came out wonderful. I liked my zucchini tamales better than the black beans one. It was very time consuming. I will have to work on my masa skills though for next time.

As for the grapefruits sorry to hear that. I hate when I get disappointed with fruit. Have you ever had a pomelo?

From Aldi:

yeast
sweet pickle relish
mixed mediterranean olives
marinated artichoke hearts
canned black olives
2 cucumbers
2 lbs carrots
5 lbs yukon gold potatoes
2 lbs lemons
2 red, 2 yellow, 2 orange bell peppers
3 zucchini
garlic hummus and roasted red pepper hummus (yes, the hummus I bought on Thursday is gone...)
1 jar dried oregano
refried beans
soda water
small oval porcelain serving dishes

from HyVee:

phyllo sheets
frozen spinach
fresh dill
fresh mint
red onion
grape tomatoes
sun dried tomatoes
Just Mayo
pastry brush

Christmas dinner:

hummus and baba ganoush with baby carrots, cucumbers, celery, grape tomatoes, and homemade pita bread
black and green olives, artichoke hearts, sun dried tomatoes, homemade tofu feta cheese
stuffed grape leaves
spanakopita
fried zucchini squash
greek bell pepper salad
lemon roasted potatoes

One nice thing about being vegetarian for a major holiday is it's so economical. Even with buying the hummus, baba ganoush, and stuffed grape leaves, the whole meal is still costing less than the meat entree I had last year.
