I think of the local Safeway as a 7-11 with a better selection and similar prices.  But there are ways to shop there without spending much.

I didn't know you could find deals in Cali. The cost of living out there is legendary. How much is hyperbole I wouldn't know.

Produce is cheap at local markets and you can always have a garden as the mild climate permits a long growing season.

I thought all they grew in Cali was marijuana? 

On a serious note; if we don't get a week of no rain, our farmers will be growing rice. I hope you like rice.

They do grow marijuana here as it's legal and a growing industry.

I am not so keen on it.  It just makes me tired and I'm not so happy to have the compulsive eating that goes with it.  Not my cup of tea, so to speak.

We buy 20 lb of basmati rice each year from a local Indian grocer.  We manage to consume it in that time.  It stores well in jars.

Had my last visit with the orthopedic surgeon this morning. I am clear for whatever. Just a pain issue now. Still can't quite climb up into the cab (tried to on Monday; nope). Gettin close. 99% sure, well, 90% sure I'll be back to work next month. I'm starting back up in the gym tomorrow. I stopped at the grocery store on my way home, got lots more stuff for salads. I'm +18 lbs. bless'ed cowpoo!  >:(

Glad to hear you are healing.  Sorry about the continued pain.  I'm sure not being able to work isn't helping in the weight dept.

I hurt my heel and now am limping around instead of walking 4 mi/day which was my usual means of getting exercise.  I don't really know that going to a doctor is going to change anything.

I just finished SunMaid Raisin toast.  It's delicious and on sale for a change so we are indulging.  I have a mountain of work to get to so I'll do that now.

Oh my, how I love rason bread (toast) & coffee. Treats like these will have to go back to being less frequent. I believe my biggest problem has been me feeling sorry for myself; 'I can eat whatever I want'. Yeah, WTG dumbass.  >:(
Anyway, just thoroughly enjoyed a loaded salad. Loaded with all good stuffies including a light sprinkling of Kroger's Fat Free Italian Dressing. If you haven't tried this dressing, give it a try. It's WAY better for you (trust me, I've compared them all) and tastes really good. I will also save you some time; stay away from the 'creamy' type salad dressings.  ;)

Eh, as long as you pay it off, why not eat what you want? Mom made Enchiladas, and didn't mix up a single step, I am very proud of her.

Her mom is such a bad cook she microwaves fish and once made mashed potatoes that could (and did) remove fillings. So mom does NOT have a joy of cooking.

She managed this by A) making them in the morning. and B) Long nap after.

She has trouble shredding chicken with the fork method, so she just cooked the chicken then went shreddy with her hands. I usually do the fork thing, but whatever works, works.

Anymore, I prefer using chicken rather than beef for my Mexican dishes.
I cooked up a bunch of chicken and sliced it up into small pieces to put on my salads. I spiced it up with this Cajun spice I have. Is good. I normally just get the frozen, boneless, skinless breasts for this. Just finished a salad and had a handful of blueberries for dessert.

Frozen chicken patty microwaved.

It was better than the Bonus Jack I had last night.

I mean I liked the Bonus Jack, but once again, my local Jbox serving up the underwhelming.

Did learn the box is el cajon though, that was funny. And their main seller is the tacos, not the burgers. The tacos are super gross.
