a massive list

I have plans to head to the store tomorrow night . . . big plans. Why such a lengthy list? Holiday baking and gift-giving for starters, and I also have a sub-goal of not having to go grocery shopping again until after Christmas. It's going to be a busy couple of weeks.

Imagine me walking back from the co-op in snowy, sub-zero conditions tomorrow night -- maybe you'll laugh a little? I'll need those laughs on the walk. :)

Here's the list:

fruit
3 lemons
eggplant
loads of fresh spinach
3 red bell peppers
2 green peppers
carrots
2 poblano chiles
salad greens
swiss chard or kale
mushrooms
ginger
garlic
onions
fresh rosemary
fresh oregano
cilantro
green onions
coleslaw mix
hazelnuts
eggs
Earth Balance
butter
1% milk
tofu
sour cream
AP flour
long-grain brown rice
Basmati rice
pistachios
cashews
dried apricots
dried cherries
golden raisins
sugar
chocolate chips
maple syrup
powdered sugar
dish soap
toilet paper
tomato paste
tomato sauce
crushed tomatoes
salsa
coconut milk
dried chiles
soba noodles
dried shiitakes
konbu
cherry jam
bittersweet chocolate
coffee
coriander seeds
stick cinnamon
whole cloves
ground cardamom
Monterey jack cheese
tortillas
sandwich rolls
apple juice concentrate
orange juice concentrate
frozen corn
frozen edamame

Wow Catherine, that is a LOT of food. I am sitting here trying to imagine how you are going to get all that home in one trip! Is the store at least close to your home? Do you have a buddy that can help you carry all that stuff? Wowsa!

I wish I could do that though - not go shopping again until Christmas, but alas, freshly baked bread wouldn't last that long, so at the very least, I would have to make a weekly run for that.

Aw Oliver is so cute. I love that look on his face.

Wow that is a lot of stuff to walk home. Does it all fit in your little pull cart? I take the bus so I have a few canvas totes to bring things home, but usually end up taking a cab.
