Living in Arkansas (home of the infamous Walmart for those of you who may not know) comes with it's own set of difficulties. Foremost among those is the inability to escape Walmart stores. They're literally everywhere and have pretty much driven most
of the other grocery stores out of business ........
I relocated to Arkansas from So Cal several years ago and - quite frankly - I'm sick to death of Walmart (no offense - - - it simply seems as though I'm gleefully trotting off to my local center every other day or so). So I'm giving it a break - - - a thirty
day break to be exact.
I've always prided myself on keeping six months to a years worth of food here at home for emergencies - so let's see how this goes. With the exception of milk, butter, and sour cream (ye gods but I love that stuff), I think I've pretty well got it under control
(watch me eat my words in a week or so)
Day 1 begins tomorrow - I know I'm low on bread so I imagine that'll be my first priority - but I'm well stocked on wheat & bread flour so fingers crossed. Hubby is also recovering from a heart attack so we're on a strict low sodium / low chol diet (ahhhhh
the good ole days of eat whatcha want and the torpedos...........)
PREP & KITCHEN SURVEY:
*Beginning starter for Benoit's Ciabatta bread
*Have several ears of cooked corn on the cob I need to use up - soup & sandwiches sound good for tomorrow nite
