WIAW: Grocery Haul

by Jillian on June 13, 2012 · 6 comments

I’m back with another What I Ate Wednesday grocery style post.


Every week, I pretty much buy the same staples plus whatever I need to cook for the week. This week was a little different. Because of my work schedule and knowing that I was going out to eat one day, I wasn’t going to prepare anything big. I had a few things already on hand and decided to keep it cheap and only get what I needed to use them up.

The haul:



Smoothie necessities:

  • spinach
  • blackberries and blueberries


  • coconut milk
  • soy creamer (love)
  • sprinkles and whip (duh)
  • Luna bars were still on sale
  • bananas – all are not pictured, obviously. They would take up the entire photo.
  • fresh mutz


  • eggs
  • green beans
  • soap (on sale)
  • makeup cleansers

What I already had on hand:


  • pasta sauce
  • chicken
  • whole wheat angel hair

What came of it:


Chicken parm! It was super simple. I cooked the chicken in a pan covered in the sauce to keep it moist. When it was just about done cooking, I topped it with thin slices of mozzarella cheese. I served it over the angel hair with a side of green beans and an arugula salad. Everything was topped with parmesan cheese because it’s a necessity.


Delicious dinner…


We didn’t finish a bottle of wine on Sunday so I had a glass with my meal. It paired perfectly.


I have enough left overs for two more meals which is just what I needed to get me through the week.

  • What do you have in your cabinets or refrigerator that you need to use up?

Love chicken parm! There are way too many leftovers in my fridge for me to keep cooking…it’s a good problem to have mid-week :)

Now I am hungry for chicken parm!! Your shopping lists have inspired me to shop for more healthy options at the grocery store.

I’ve actually never had chicken parm before! It looks good though. Yay for berries, so happy they are finally in season!
