The topic: Just got back from Sprout’s

----------------------------------------------

A small healthy food type of store.  A lot of the fruit and veggies come from local growers, the prices are lower than the big grocery stores. 

I’m making lasagna tonight (even if Brian’s not home when it’s cooked, lasagnas keep well….great for leftovers) and I thought it would be nice to have garlic bread with it. Yesterday, I hit Alberton’s and got ricotta and mozarella cheese.  CostCo carries mozarella, but it’s this big assed block; I’ve tried the splitting and freezing, but I forget it’s there and end up tossing the frozen cheese out years later. I thought it might be fun to make my own sourdough bread and my own garlic spread and do my own toast.  I’ve been in one of those kinds of moods lately.  To make the bread, I use a recipe that was in my very first breadmaker manual.  I needed some plain yogurt, which is why I went to the store.

While I was there, I bought some fresh broccoli, carrots, celery, dried split peas (I’ve not made pea soup in ages), cornmeal (yay! I’ve never had plain cornmeal, usually use the mixes, but the boxes are all so small and spendy, I think I’ll make my own cornbread), sunflower seeds and some Santa Fe trail mix (spicy…yum!).  I also picked up some shredded romano cheese and sliced turkey. 

I was very proud of myself for passing by the bulk candy. I looked, but the past couple of weeks, sweets really upset my tummy (and that sucks), so that made it easier to keep going.

Oh, I got a refurbed Cuisinart Soft Serve ice cream machine on deals.woot.com a couple of weeks ago, it got here yesterday.  I think I’ll be making lime sorbet this week, we’ve for sure got the fresh limes.  More yummy!
