That's a shame on your shortages. Especially when they are items needs to maintain weight, etc.
My freezer has space in it that I am going to fill today by ordering from S's. They Deliver in Fri. So time enough to get organized.
I have only 2 Rib Eyes left... and 5 thin pork chops. But a number of drumsticks I will cook and put in fridge for picnic type lunches. Also a Chicken Breast or two I will fix with herbs and breading.
I had my cod with a baked potato and applesauce for lunch yesterday. For dinner cheese & chips as
not hungry. Haven't walked as much this week.
I still have that Xmas turkey breast but will remove the breading on it. I prefer plain. It's good size and will make good leftovers and sandwiches. I just couldn't get in the mood for the holidays last year. Any of them.
I eat too much cheese... since I went to the market I am not having Boy buy anything at the store. Imperfect Foods has Tillamook cheddar - small but enough. Also other white cheese more often so that's fine. I have grated Moz... but am out of provolone. Need to order that today. I would love to have some smoked Gouda... they have plain but I love smoked with the really hard to find "Carlson?" Wheat crackers. Oh well.
I received my AZ foods yesterday Betty Crocker Blueberry Muffin mix x 4. Also Jiffy banana cornbread mix x 3. I like to toast the jiffy but today I need to buy a bread pan and some more small alum ones as well.
The toaster arrived. Yeah. I have lots of bread on hand. Cinnamon Raisin bread, multi grain, White for my few BLT sandwiches. A large loaf of Sourdough that I need to bake. Some real Corn tortillas from IPFs lol. I have taken a dislike to Pita bread. They fall apart and I can't stuff them. Hummm. I still have some of Dave's burger buns - They are seeded and whole grain. Am buying another loaf from IPFs - I have begun using my rolling pin on them to flatten to toast - works great for avocado toast. 8-)
I can't wait to try the blackberry preserves I got at the Veggie stand. I also can't wait to buy berries from IPFs. I am hoping I am really getting back to cooking. I do have lots of berries in the freezer: Red, black, blue. With Spring here I want to buy more and lots of fresh herbs and put them in water in the fridge to root and - with all the pots I have ---or even --- hopefully buy that bale of hay and start a tiny garden. My compost is doing great but I do need to add a bag of good potting soil to it and put up a better wall - maybe even move it to a better place.
I live on some sand but mostly fossils. SIGH!
The only things with deep roots are trees and some bushes.
Speaking of trees I am thrilled to say my Umbrella tree has shoots growing from a number of places on the trunks. HURRAH! Unfortunately one of the Red Tips by the front porch doesn't seem to be coming back. Oh well.
I have a large ripe Pineapple SUPER LARGE and GOLDEN - tht I need to slice and freeze for when I cook pork chops. Love pineapple & pork chops.
I am still waking at 4am... yes it's the critters but sometimes just me.
Plus Charlie has been gnawing on my arm and now I have those old lady bruise spots. ARRRGH!!!
But I seem to be in one of those period where I get scratch, tear my skin, cut myself - all by accident or from working in the yard. I had to cut back one of the flowering bushes that has red berries during the winter and lovely white flowers summer.
Did I mention that the bush with new red leaves only - not Red Tips - lost all the berries the three of them had since I moved in. The "storm" blew them or froze them so they fell off. There is now four new stalks with tiny white flower buds... I should cut the dead flower stalks off - they are very fragile.
Oh goodie my toilet paper is arriving today. ROFLOL!

I really like them. Maybe you and DH & DS could eat them. Which is why I copied all their info.
I hope to order some more avocados but they are tiny and not all are good. Part of buying from Imperfect foods. Even got bad strawberries from the Local veggie stand. Oh well.
Your meals always sound good. Oh lucky DH and "thawing pies" I am not big on Lime but Lemon meringue - Ah I would love to be COOKING again but not stove is a pain. Maybe in a year or two then a scratch N dent stove.
Luckily I had some $ from this month. But had to ay for the trash service and the vet and, and, and. ARRRGH!! Still I can buy a few more pet foods... am down to 2 Dry Charlie. I prefer to have 3 on hand - Need another bag of wild bird and 2 more for Chance.
Kitty no longer throws up since off canned food. I have both of them on sensitive stomach dry food. Unfortunately I need to cut back as both are gaining weight and no S has not gotten her PG. Thank goodness.
Received Charlie 1st autoship Bravecto so he is good till July 12th. I made sure the next pill arrives at end of month prior so it is on hand in plenty of time.
Heart guard should arrive before end of APril as I give him his monthly pill on the 1st. I am so glad that he has no problem with HeartGuard like RR's dog had.
The one pasta I am buying from AZ is not so good -
Though in stores it is - I think they are sending AZ odd mistake batches. The Rontoni is all spinach where I like the tri combo spinach, carrot and white. Their angel hair is ok.
I do like the DeCecco Penne Rigate which cooks up great.
So I need to see if IPF has pasta available. They are expanding like mad. But I especially want fresh herbs.
I am really sorry about the pasta contamination. I love bowties but haven't found any online that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
Oh arm no longer aches and swelling gone down. But I still need to see Dr K eventually. Sorry but Dr visits seems to fit with food in my case. MY D is doing very well. Every time I think my BP is weird it is normal. I also need a way to gain weight I am under 130 gain.
I haven't been walking as much - Charlie has slowed down as well on humid days. Usually he runs only first thing in AM. If cloudy or before sun rises. The deer haven't been around at all. The G hens are noisy but not visible either.
Oh well. I am trying to eat more - in fact am eating ice cream once or twice a week.
Plus once a week BLT. And lunch big meal of the day. Which keeps my BS down unless I forget to eat then it is high until I eat something. ARRRGH!!!
I have a big bowl of strawberries for this morning. No whipped cream just some powdered sugar to cut bitterness. No bananas either (sigh)
Well have to feed Charlie his Peanut butter/ training treats Kong then his dental chew but only after he and Chance get their apple or carrot but before I feed the wildbirds out back and Squirrels of course. I made a bunch of Nectar yesterday... but go through it like mad.
I did make three pots of coffee with fully loaded Folgers Dark roast. Yeah I know. Anyway I bought 3 large containers of Folgers decaf and will be mixing the two together to cut back on caffeine.
Thank goodness I save spagetti sauce jars. The bottom shelf on my fridge door has 2/3s coffee and 1/3 nectar. I need to mix nectar every other day and coffee every three if I am being a good girl LOLOL
Oh I bought some Pepsi Mini diet soda. Small cans so they will cut back on my recycling. If only boy would help me get it GONE!
Well Have a good rest of the week. It was suppose to rain last night - it didn't. Now we are waiting for rain today... so far NADA!
Take care of each other.
