Grocery store trip-- goal accomplished! Hooray! Armed with a list that correlated to an actual menu for the week, I enjoyed the lovely Spring-like weather and headed to my neighborhood Safeway. The trip included a first; I bought rice vinegar to use in a recipe which I've never used. I am going to use it this week in a pasta dish. Not sure yet what else I will use it for but there's a website I heard about where you can type in the ingredient and they'll pull up recipes that use it.
My walk from the grocery store to my bus stop. Lovely day!
I bought celery for the first time too. My Gma uses it in tuna and I think it sounds like a good idea. The green thing above the bananas in this picture is my reusable bag that Lau gave me for my birthday. I remember when I first moved here, I went shopping and asked for my groceries to be double bagged paper inside of plastic. Everyone in line gasped. The clerk said "where you been lady? That's illegal." Who knew! No plastic bags in major grocery stores. Took me a while to bring my reusable bags on the regular but now I like it. It's a habit I wish I had started a long time ago.
That's the Golden Gate bridge! It's lovely!
I'll keep you updated on my progress this week in terms of actually using the food for my lunches!
