I'm still having hard time taking good photos of my groceries. There's apparently not enough light in the kitchen with the light turned off. They're a little better without the light on but they won't be as good as they used to be anymore. There is probably a setting I could change on my camera but I have no idea what to do. I just set it to "point and shoot" and never bother with the settings.

I stocked up on some staples at Kroger today so that I could get the buy one/get one free deal on the Private Selection ice cream. You had to spend at least $10.00 and I didn't need enough stuff this week to make $10.00 without buying a few extra items. So, I stocked up on some frozen veggies, the sambal oelek, plastic wrap and napkins.

HEB was out of the quarts of heavy cream once again but I went ahead and bought a pint. I'm not eating yogurt for breakfast at the moment so I don't really need that much cream on hand. I also use cream to make quiches for my husband but I decided to save some money and use half & half instead. I've got enough heavy cream on hand to make whipped cream for the strawberry shortcake.

As I mentioned on Tuesday, Kroger was out of the .69lb bone-in chicken thighs so I bought a small pork loin roast that was on sale instead.

Although I'm no longer posting my weekly menus, I thought I'd mention a few things that I'm planning to make over the next week. Tomorrow I will make a low carb pound cake and will use it to make strawberry shortcake for the 4th of July. I had a bag of frozen strawberries which I will add to the fresh ones that I bought today. That was a super price on them at Aldi. They were advertised as $1.19 this week but there was a "manager's special" at my store.


I'll also be making pizza, Italian Meatball Burgers, Houston Chicken and Cauliflower & Ham Salad.


I will only make the cauliflower salad if they have a good price on cauliflower at Food Town next week.


  1. Yum! All of these recipes look great, Linda! I wrote down a few I hope to try soon! Thanks so much!

  2. Do you think the houston chicken would be good with havarti cheese instead of cheddar? I love cheddar but seem to always use it so was looking for a change. ;)

    1. Yes, I think that would taste great. You could use any cheese that would go well with bacon and BBQ sauce.

      I just made a big bowl of that Cauliflower & Ham Salad a couple days ago. Yummy. I'm also planning to make Houston Chicken again very soon.
