QFC Grocery Basket 12/10
My son, the plumber, has our family photos and every so often he will post one of them on Facebook. They always bring back old memories of when we were all young and definitely having a good time. I've mentioned before that my favorite ex-husband used to race stock cars and here is the proof. Look at all that beautiful hair on my son!! It makes me sad that at least three of these guys are dead, including my favorite ex-husband. He always said to live hard and die fast. He knew what he was talking about because that is just what he did.
This is when we hiked two miles into Surprise Lake to do a little spring fishing. It was just us and the bear who took a brand new two pound brick of Tillamook cheese from our camp site. We decided to leave then.
The only reason that we ended up on the Olympic Peninsula was because of the fishing. My son is holding his much loved old cat, Dee Dee, when we lived in Port Angeles. Look at the size of that salmon or maybe it is a steelhead. I can tell by the long underwear and the waders that this fish was caught in the winter. Probably on the Hoh or Bogachiel out on the West End.
My son and his friend Allen in front of our car repair business. They are still good friends to this day. I have no idea what they have been up to. Maybe one of their famous camping trips which were really just excuses to drink beer out in the woods.
Okay - enough tripping down memory lane. Let's talk grocery shopping. QFC has boneless chuck roast on sale this week for $3.99 a pound which is a pretty good price, so if your family likes meat, stock up. Once you get it home cut some of it up for stew before you put it in the freezer. Also, they are running their Buy 4/Save $4 promo, so if you need packaged goods check it out.

Now you know how Miss MoneyPenny is all about getting a flu shot and I still think that. But there is a little problem this year with the virus. It took a left turn and mutated or something scientific so our vaccines are not as effective. From what I understand it is only about 60 percent effective but will still offer some protection if you do get the flu. In other words, you won't get as sick as if you hadn't had the shot. So I'm still recommending that you get your flu shot because getting less sick is a good thing. Don't you agree??
