K was gone over the weekend, and I spent some time at home with my mom for Mother’s Day, so I missed out on Saturday’s farmers market.
Luckily for us, Green City Market also runs on Wednesdays and since I work from home, I can easily pick some produce up during the week.
Fortunately, we also have other options besides the farmers market. There is Local Foods, which is not far away, and our nearby Mariano’s does carry numerous local options.
For the past week so far, we have basically been cleaning out the fridge and our cabinets, eating whatever random stuff we have left. I have basically been eating steel cut oats every single day because that is all we have left. I am not complaining about that though.
Since K is going to be gone again over the weekend and I will be pretty busy, we did not need to load up on groceries this week.
I accompanied my cousin and her toddler to Mariano’s and picked up a few things:
- Oberweis milk from family farms around IL and WI
- Greenridge Farm lunchmeat from Elk Grove Village, IL
- Today’s Temptation Bread from Chicago
- G.H. Cretor’s cheese popcorn from Waukegan, IL
After that, I skipped over to Local Foods to get the rest of this week’s necessities:
- Hot dog buns
- A container of walnuts
- Tortilla chips to compliment the rest of the salsa we have left
We are going to be gone again over Memorial Day weekend, so hopefully, this won’t be so sporadic once we are actually home for a weekend!
