There are three grocery stores within a 3 mile radius of the house I normally shop at.  I don’t favor one over the others as each store has its pros and cons.  Shopping the sales is a favorite pastime of mine.  There are many occasions when the evening meal is not determined until I find what looks good at the store.  And if it’s on sale I am in Heaven.  The problem I have had recently is buying too much of what’s on sale.  Who can resist the family pack of chicken tenders at $1.99 a pound?  This is the crux of my affliction.  What do you do with 10 pounds of chicken tenders and just two mouths to feed?

I admit I am getting better at not buying everything I see simply because the price is irresistible.   The worst transgression recently turned out to be 10 pounds of boneless chicken thighs.  I love boneless chicken thighs but I had a hard time figuring out what to cook with those flavorful pieces of the bird.  So I ended up freezing most of the meat.  And you end up making meals with chicken thighs for a long, long time.

For the past couple of months, I’ve been disciplining myself to buy less.  The only other solution I can think of is to find more people to cook for.  This is the hand I’ve been dealt.

Wish me well this morning.  I’m going shopping.

P.S. – I have 5 pounds of organic carrots I bought a few days ago.  Anyone have any good carrot recipes?
