What’s in my cart?

I haven’t done “What’s in my cart?” lately, and don’t have an actual picture of my shopping carts, but here’s the lowdown on what this no-grains-allowed household bought on our Saturday morning grocery shopping extravaganza:

From Uwajimaya*:

  • Three bunches curly kale
  • One bunch collard greens
  • Two heads lettuce
  • One bunch cilantro
  • One bunch curly parsley
  • One bunch beets
  • Two heads broccoli
  • Celery
  • Several small sweet potatoes
  • A few yellow potatoes
  • Several skinny eggplant
  • Mixed summer squash
  • Two bunches green onions
  • Small piece smoked salmon

From Madison Market:

  • A 64-ounce tub of plain yogurt
  • Organic milk
  • Chia seeds
  • Cocoa nibs
  • Pectin (so we can make low-sugar blackberry jam)

From Trader Joe’s:

  • Two pint containers nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • Canned beans (one pinto, three cannellini)
  • Tiny wheel of goat’s milk Brie
  • Small block of raw milk Gruyère
  • Two bottles of red wine 

From Costco:

  • Peaches
  • Spinach
  • Bananas
  • Bell peppers
  • Two tubs of baby Bella mushrooms
  • Salad mix
  • Avocados
  • Garlic
  • Pineapple
  • Goat cheese
  • Flax seed
  • Tomato sauce

I also had Jeff pick up two bags of braising greens, two cucumbers and a bunch of basil (for pesto) from the farmer’s market by his office late last week. We have a freezer full of small-farm-raised beef and pork, plus salmon filets, chicken breasts, chicken thighs and ground turkey (from Costco), so flesh is on the menu this week, despite its absence from our shopping list.

Once again, we open the refrigerator door at our own risk. Sigh.

* I continue to be amazed at what one can buy at this store. We were browsing the meat (and meat-related) section, for fun, and marveled that it is possible to buy such esoteric offerings as sheep’s brain, beef bile, sheep and beef blood, and really, just about every single part of the pig. Cool. Not that we’re “going there,” but I like knowing that it is possible.
