Yesterday was the first time since our move, which was four months ago, that I've taken all the kids grocery shopping with me. In the past, I've done one of my monthly trips with them and the other alone. I hadn't realized, until yesterday, that they haven't come in so long. Tim's home in the summer, so it's just made more sense to let them play at home than to bring them along.
I boot kids out of the shopping cart by three years old, but Naomi, thanks to a four month break from WinCo trips, is out of practice on walking in the store for the length of time a WinCo trip takes. So, she got to ride for part of it. Another couple trips and I'll have the seat of my cart empty. Yeah!
Anyway, Granny (she comes along and does her shopping at the same time), the kids, and I hit WinCo yesterday morning and the kitchen is stocked for the following meals.
Tam's granola (crockpot)
sausage balls (freezer)
pumpkin bread (freezer)
