Day Away (Also: Journal Entry 9000) [Sep. 24th, 2020|03:16 am]
While the shopping trip was not great, it was decent, and I got several items I wasn't expecting, including two servings of Michelangelo's vegetarian lasagna, one of my favorite frozen entrees. A better deal is when Raley's has the family size package on its Monday sale for five bucks, which gives me three servings for a dollar less than I paid for two today, but when will I get to Raley's on a Monday again? A lasagna in the freezer is worth two in the store.

Because I forgot to buy donuts (one of the main things I was after) at Save Mart, I stopped by Grocery Outlet to get them. As usual when I go there I ended up buying other stuff I hadn't intended to get. I picked up a bottle of orange juice there, for a little over half what I'd paid for each of two bottles at Save Mart. Had I known I would end up at Grocery Outlet and they would have the juice (they don't always) I could have bought the first two there instead and saved over three bucks. That could have been another package of lasagna! But then I also got six dark chocolate Kit Kat bars. I didn't know they existed, and given that Grocery Outlet is clearing them out at 49 cents each, they probably won't exist much longer. I munched one when I got home and it's quite good.

So I'm stocked up on donuts, orange juice, milk, ramen, bread, frozen vegetables, and a number of other things, and can just not concern myself with foods for a couple of weeks. Sadly, I also forgot avocados, which were on sale, and they're usually pretty good at Save Mart (Safeway's are crap.) I was looking forward to having an avocado sandwich tonight, but I turned out to be too stupid.

As usual, going out left me tired, and I've had a couple of naps and have still nodded off in my chair a few times. As I don't want to fallout of it I'm going to go to bed. Without washing my dishes: Neither the ramen bowl, nor the spoon and fork. Maybe having a donut when I wake up will make Thursday a better day.

And, yes, this is my 9,000th journal entry at LJ. Not much of a prize, is it?

Congrats on the nine thousand. Do you have a lifetime account?

And, I was wondering what you put on an avocado sandwich besides the obvious. I rarely did avocados until I moved to CA and I love them, especially when they're low cost.

Thanks. Yes I do have a permanent account, which I bought in 2003, I think, for $150.00. Had I bought it the previous year, which was the first time they sold them, it would have been only $100.00.

I usually make my avocado sandwiches very plain, with just avocado on white bread toast with a bit of mayonnaise, but the Mexican restaurant where I first encountered them about 57 years ago put some very thinly sliced tomato, lettuce, and a bit of sweet onion on them. They're good that way too, but I'm very bad at both slicing tomatoes and sweet onions and at remembering to buy them and the lettuce.
