QFC Grocery Basket 6/3
Now you know that Miss MoneyPenny is not a world traveller. I'm a real homebody except for a few forays down to Oregon or fun day trips. I also love to go RVing and used to go all the time with my favorite ex husband but none of the current men in my life have an RV. But my dear friend Miss Jeannie loves to get on airplanes and go all over the world.
At lunch one day, she announced that she and her cute husband, Dan, were headed to Turkey to visit his daughter who is in the Air Force. OMG!! I asked her if she couldn't go someplace a little further away from all that violence over there....like Paris or Venice. But she is a dare devil and went anyway. The above picture was taken from her hotel in Ankara, which is the capital of Turkey, and the place looks just beautiful. She says the only scary thing there is that pedestrians do not have the right of way and you have to be a fast runner, which she is. I will be glad to see her safely back home.
Okay - let's look at the ad for this week. Copper River salmon is at QFC (weather permitting) and it is going for $8.99 a pound. Sounds wonderful, doesn't it?? The only drawback, and for me it is a biggie, the damned fish is whole which means that somebody has to cut it up. I'm terrible at this because my favorite ex husband always did this and he did it with an electric knife with absolutely no waste. He was a master at this and could even fillet fish after a half rack of beer with no problem.
Here are my suggestions for this week:
Tully's Coffee - $5.99/12oz
Best Foods Mayonnaise - $3.49/30oz
McCormick Grill Mates Seasoning - $1.50/ea
Fage Greek Yogurt - $3/17.6oz
Kroger Sour Cream - $1/16oz
Draper Valley Chicken Breasts - BOGO
Laura's Lean Ground Beef - $5.99/lb
Whole Fresh Wild Copper River Salmon - $8.99/lb
Asparagus - $1.99/lb
Mangoes - $1/ea
Red or Green Seedless Grapes - $1.99/lb
Washington Red Cherries - $2.99/lb
This picture is a big pot of dwarfish sweet peas. I saw these in Territorial Seed's spring catalog and just had to try them. My plan is that they will be a big pot of lovely smelling wonderfulness on my deck. I was a little worried because they took forever to sprout but here they are...finally!!
This is what the pack looks like and supposedly they are for pots and don't need a trellis. I'll keep you posted on this.
