Grocery shopping

| No TrackBacks

I went to the grocery store(s) today. I started off with a quick run into Sam's to get some stuff for the Engineer. I would've picked up some Balance Bars but I have a pretty large stockpile right now. I did notice that they carry big packs of fruit cups that I might go back for sometime. After Sam's, I went next door to the Wal-Mart Super Center to pick up cereal. The Engineer has started eating my cereal (Kashi Go Lean Crunch) instead of Cheerios, so we now go through a ton of cereal in a short period of time. I picked up 4 boxes. While there, I checked the dairy section for my milk. I just opened the container, but I like to have my 2nd container before I run out. My milk (Lactaid with Soy Protein) was not there. I hadn't seen it at HyVee on Monday either, so I got a little worried that maybe the stores here aren't going to carry it anymore. I drink this milk because it has 14 grams of protein per cup (I used to drink soy milk before I started upping my protein; I hate regular milk). Regular milk has 8 grams, and soy milk has 6-7. I don't want to switch milks, so I was kind of worried/nervous about the possible discontinuation.

So I finished grabbing stuff from Wal-Mart, and headed over to a different HyVee. They had my milk! I went ahead and bought 4 containers of it. Yes, 4. I don't want to worry about the stores being out, and now I'm good for almost a month. One of the beautiful things about buying this kind of Lactaid (and most soy milks) is that because of the pasteurization method, the expiration date isn't until April 7. (Once opened, it should be consumed within 7 days, however). So I should probably just go ahead and start buying 3-4 cartons at a time, because it is something that will definitely get used and it has such a long shelf life.

I think tomorrow will be the day that I register for the marathon. It would've been today, but the grocery store trips interfered.
