What did you last bring home from the grocery store??
My latest shopping trip yielded:
A big bag of various onions
Tri-color bell peppers
Rainbow baby carrots
No-salt garbonzos & black beans
Sager Creek Hummus (in a can!)
No-salt diced/crushed tomatoes & sauce
Flatout Multigrain w/ flax wraps
Mrs. Dash Table Blend
Meijer no-salt kettle potato chips
I feel so replenished & excited! LOL :D:bobo::D
Just got back :)
25 lbs rolled oats
10 lbs whole wheat flour
10 lbs potatoes
1 lb red pepper powder
3 big yellow onions
1 gallon vinegar
I rarely use vinegar in cooking, I only needed a new gallon this year because I just finished making a batch of antibiotics. My kitchen makes more than food, lol
A short list- toilet paper and coffee.
tranquility trail mix
veggie burgers (impulse purchase, first vegan burgers I've found there...and they're even labeled "vegan"--it was my duty as a citizen of the world to purchase them)
yeast (have to use up my flour!)
roasted red pepper hummus
pre-crisped tostada shells (impulse purchase, but I already had 2 cans of refried beans)
18 oz stoneware soup mug with lid (what can I say, I eat a lot of soup!)
3-pak of romaine hearts
acorn squash (sadly, too small to stuff)
Total including totally unnecessary purchases: $33.17
Next will look quite the same but instead of oats and flour it'll be 50 lbs of dog food and 25 lbs of brown rice.
Luckily my local market (WinCo) lets me buy things in reasonable quantities rather than tiny 1 lb packets.
20 pounds basmati rice
package of 16 vegan masala burgers
package of frozen potato and pea samosas
2 boxes of TVP
vegan ginger cookies
a spice mix the guy at the store recommended when he saw us buying TVP
From an Indian market.
BTW, the masala burgers were $8 for the box of 16. Ethnic markets have so much better prices than regular grocery stores.
A pack of vegan sausages and a frozen burrito. We haven't gone actual grocery shopping since before the baby. 😑
Original Source mint & tea tree shower gel
Low fat oven chips
Spring greens (collards)
Little gem lettuces
Rich roast ground coffee
Granose vegetable pate
Smokey chilli and garlic paste
Black bean sauce
Le Conserva Della Nonna free-from Pesto
Pataks Madras spice paste
Tiger Tiger Worcester sauce
Grape and peach squash
Alpro dark chocolate soya dessert
And I keep a stocked wholefoods cupboard that I get in bulk a few times a year.
I now have a mission: find frozen potato and pea samosas somewhere near me.
I just called and not only do they have them, but it's only 3 dollars for 8! Thank you!

Brown onions x 1 kilo
Celery (finely diced is always a part of my stew and soup bases along with carrots and onions. Also good in salads)

Fair trade ground coffee

I already have tons of grains and spices stocked up at home, and I STILL have a regular supply of collard greens from my garden going strong. I also still have some tempeh, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds at home already. And tons of vinegars, lemon juice, lime juice, tamari...
My mother has a costco membership, today I went with her to see if they had any worthwhile food.
It was mostly junk food but they did have real food, all of which cost more than at my regular supermarket.
So my grand costco shopping spree haul was....
A big box of dog bones :laugh:
@Naturebound , What's the dish you're making for your husband's birthday? I love tater tots! We don't have them in the UK. :'(
My shop from today:
spiralised courgette and butternut squash
a bag of cut broccoli, cabbage, and leek
a tray of assorted roasting vegetables
piri piri hummus
coconut, chili, and lemongrass rice
pizza-flavoured tofu fillet (!!!)
tater tot hot dish,
and I thought it would be nice to veganize the down home rich, fattening, classic tator tot hot dish for him, sans meat. Some tater tots are not vegan due to all the crap put in them, but I found some organic ones: http://www.cascadianfarm.com/product...s/spud-puppies
and used those. I first made a roux with white flour and Earth balance butter I had on hand and slowly added almond milk to make a thick gravy. I added onion powder and salt/pepper, then stirred in canned green beans, onions, and mushrooms. When we were out and about today I decided to stop and get some Tofutti vegan sour cream so I added that too. Then I scooped it all into a 9x13" pan and added the tator tots on top. finally I sprinkled the Daiya shredded chedder over it all and baked it for 45 minutes. My husband really loved this dish! He ate a ton of it tonight. I am practically doubled over in pain from just the little bit I ate lol. It was that rich.
Edit to add, when I was grocery shopping yesterday I saw that the grocery store I frequent now has Daiya vegan frozen pizzas, the large ones! I actually swore at the store when I saw it, because it was just so tempting. How dare they start having all these vegan goodies so readily available there! :whip:
The bag-boy. ;)
I'm kidding!! C'mon, no one even thought of that?? Mmmm, I sure did.... LOL! Ok, I'll stop.
Seriously, this is really cool.... give people ideas for their next shopping trip! Got a recipe in mind?? Make a list! Whatcha buyin', folks??
Tater tot hot dish? I'd like some! Although I'd use diced potatoes, green peppers and mushroomsl and tempeh. In other words, I'd really like some of the gravy!
I did wonder why naturebound would buy canned green beans!:laugh:
I had the most interesting, unexpected stop at a store yesterday. I went to get my free dvd rental from Redbox, with my son, in front of a Giant Eagle, a store I really despise. I've been craving a grilled cheese so I figured why not go in and see if they have Daiya. We went all around the store with their awful smells and sights- seemed like the dead bodies were everywhere- till we found the cheese part. No Daiya, Tofuffi slices, which I didn't even know were vegan. well I didn't want to pay almost $5 for something I didn't know I liked, but then I heard my son say "hey, theres Daiya here for $1.00." WHAT? They had bags of Daiya and packs of Daiya provolone for $1.00 on a discounted shelf. AND the expire date was 1/2016! I didn't know how many to buy. I wanted them all. I ended up buying 4 mozzerella shreds, the only 2 cheddar shreds and 4 packs of provolone! >:D Ten dollars in my freezer for a long time! :eek:
I was both happy and sad, because I want all vegan things to become parts of omnivores diets (and then make them all vegan).
I had some provolone melted over tortilla chips with salsa. Man was that satisfying!
As with everything else, you just have to know what is a good deal where, and shop accordingly.
I'll list my Trader Joes stuff, I keep the master list of the few stores I shop at so I don't forget the store-specific things:
check the fruit
inquire about soy yogurt
vegan cream cheese
edaname, peas, corn
sag Thai pad curry (or something)
semi-sweet chocolate chips (vegan)
extra firm tofu, sprouted tofu
Tofurky italian sausage
ginger almond soap
Trader Joes extra dry moisturizing lotion--love that stuff!
Eggless, milkless, butterless grandmother bread:
3 cups warm water
1 packet yeast
4 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
6.5 cups of flour (recipe called for 7 but I had the consistency I wanted after 6 and a half.
I like this thread. It's fun to see what everyone shops for, so I'm shamelessly replying to my own post and bumping it up.
Today's final shopping list before I move:
bell peppers: 2 red, a yellow, and an orange
1 red onion
1 head romaine
8 oz sliced baby portabellas
1 jar marinara sauce
1 can garbanzo beans
1 carton soy milk
2 small almond yogurts: plain
- 10 cents for bringing my own bags:
I decided to use my leftover bread dough to make a cheeseless pizza topped with marinara, red onions, mushrooms, bell peppers, tomatoes, and olives.
