One huge benefit I get from you folks sharing your shopping lists with me, is I find out more about you, and where you live.
Today’s list is from Lisa, aka arlingwoman and I thank her heartily for sharing it for us to enjoy, analyse, etc. Please drop in to her blog (link in previous sentence) and say “Hi”.
This is what Wiki-you-know-what says about her home city:
“Arlington is home to the Pentagon and Arlington National Cemetery, both of which are popular tourist attractions and attract defense and military personnel to the area.Arlington is a county in northern Virginia, and as of May 19, 2018, Arlington is known to have the healthiest citizens in all of the United States.” Lisa, are you one of those healthy ones? What contributes to that positive state of affairs in your city?
And, here’s what Lisa had to say about her shopping du jour, as well as a recipe for a fish dish:
Hmmm…I live in Arlington, Virginia, USA. I shop at the Whole Foods near where I live. It’s colloquially known here as Whole Paycheck, but I don’t think the prices are bad if you’re not buying prepared foods or deli foods. I decided not to get the cod there, though, as it was more costly and a bigger package than Safeway, where I also intend to get the decaf coffee. Probably this weekend for that, though. It’s not a very big list as I have vegetables from the garden and don’t eat much meat.
I make my list in the order I go through the store—and now I know I’m not alone in that as your Finnish list maker said she did the same!
I discovered a nice way to fix the cod (normally I bake it with lemon, olive oil, capers and feta cheese, but it’s too hot for that) with some Moroccan spices mixed with bread crumbs. Dip the fish in egg, roll in the seasoned bread crumbs and fry. Yum. It has to be drained, though … hence the paper towels. (Editor’s note: I think that paper towel with the oil can safely go in the compost bin.)
I had a tad of bother getting the image onto the site, so I had better do some transcribing for you.
fruit? Tom’s Green beans Avocado Lettuce deodorant Toothpaste ???? Tonic (I think) Seltzer Cod Chicken? Creamer ???? Paper towels Wine decaf eggs
So, who can decipher the mystery items? What else do you need to comment on? Thank you again, Lisa.
Remember, I am always looking for contributions for this topic!
