So, we decided to go to Sam's on Sunday where we have been able to get our low carb bread for about $3.50 a loaf. Listen when you buy a loaf of bread for $3.50 a loaf, you eat the heel. Anyway the shelf was empty. Second Sam's and still no bread for us.
It wasn't a wasted trip though, we went ahead and bought everything else we needed though while we were there. Like their roasted chicken and they had a good price on the strawberries. That's where I ran into him, the produce department. The older gentlemen (older than me) in a motorized wheelchair as I was picking out my strawberries. He blocked my path and said why did they move the produce dept. (like I worked there). I hadn't even paid attention to that, but that made me look and I realized that they had temporally moved it across the aisle. His wife and him seemed really upset by that. Some people can't handle change I guess, even temporary.
Before I could move away, he looked in my cart and said, I wouldn't buy that chicken at all, what a waste of money (a $5 chicken already cooked). I said really, and he explained how there was hardly any chicken left after you deboned it. I said oh, ok. I thought to myself he doesn't know, I could have have a family of 8 at home and we could all debone that chicken in one meal! LOL
Then he started talked about my strawberries I had in my hand and said they would have no taste because they were so big. Well.
I left him after that, just smiled, and went on my merry way. I don't remember, but I think I said two words in the whole conversation. Sometimes that's the best.
I don't judge other people's cart. I'm not sure about their situation and usually I'm in my own little world, looking for my deal. I've heard so many people talk about well she was on food stamps and bought this or look at all that pop they bought, you know that's not good for them. It's none of my business really. They are getting what they need for that moment.
As I was in line telling my husband the story, the lady behind us heard it and said she was buying 2 chickens for her two dogs. She said it was cheaper than dog food. I know nothing about dog nutrition but this sounds so smart.
My advice: don't go to Sam's on Sunday.
FYI: I found the bread at Meijer, it's not as cheap though. I'm going back for the pop I found on sale by the way.
Menu for this Week:
Monday Breakfast for dinner, sausage, hash browns, eggs, and toast
Tuesday The chicken we bought at Sam's, mashed potatoes, and green beans
Wednesday Work done on house so we will just grab something out
Thursday Chicken and Dumplings
Friday Chicken salad
Saturday Grilling out (no rain in the forecast) hamburgers. hotdogs, and whatever else we can find.
Sunday Some of the grilled out food!
Breakfast: there were 3 sausage patties left from dinner yesterday so I made three breakfast burritos this morning with 2 and I will warm up the other sausage for me in the morning. We will also have oats and fried bologna the rest of the week.
