A food buying group a bit north of here let me join them in ordering from United Natural Foods. Their products probably aren’t any less expensive than the grocery stores but I mostly ordered things I can’t get here. And, I love buying in bulk.
We’ve been using McCann’s Irish Oats but decided to try Bob’s and see if we can tell any difference. We love steel cut oats and I don’t think there’s anywhere we can buy them locally. There were four bags of oats.
The big bag in the middle front is tabouli salad mix. I love that stuff and we’re having some for dinner tonight. There were three bags and you only use 1 cup of the mix. I think we can have tabouli salad for quite a while!
I got six loaves of Sprouted Rye Seed Bread. I’ve made sprouted seed bread a few times and we like it a lot.
Also, got a dozen Lemongrass Basil frozen dinners. That’s one of our favorite Thai dishes so I hope it’s good.
And, Pine Nut Couscous. I can get regular couscous here but don’t usually find the Pine Nut variation.
Eggplant Parmesan Bites should be good for a little snack every now and then and in the big bag – five pounds of quinoa. Certainly can’t get that unless I go to Whole Foods. Chad loves Quinoa Salad with Chicken, Grapes & Almonds so we’ll have that this weekend. He’ll be thrilled that we have quinoa in the house!
We won’t be going hungry for a while but we also aren’t making much progress with cleaning out the freezer.
