I have not been married long, just these 2 years . We have a ( almost 2 year old) and I'm due on the 24th.

I know this sounds crazy ,I was on another post which made me think of this. What do you buy regularly when you grocery shop?



Like I don't know what to buy , I go to the store and I come home and we eat the same things weekly. My husband says I make pasta like very other night.



I don't mind cooking at all, but when I look up recipes & then try to buy the stuff in them . It's so expensive . So I'm going to start maybe getting more of a variety of stuff then look up recipes .



We have pasta, pork chops , and pizza at least once a week.



Thanks !!

I cant really cook, like I only know how to make basic stuff. Everytime I try a new recipe, my dh usually wont even try a bite, so i dont even bother anymore. We eat almost every meal out.

I regularly buy eggs, milk, yogurt, juice, fruit, and pretzle/cracker type snacks.

Then I plan a menu for the week and buy the stuff to make our dinners. For lunch we usually just eat dinner leftovers or simple stuff like grilled cheese.

I buy what is on sale and then figure out what to cook later. I buy the basics like beans, milk, cheese, bread, rice, flour, etc..

Kroger usually has some meats on sale. Depending on what is there, I'll make what I can with what I can afford. It's kind of like Chopped. You have a few items and have to figure out what the hell to make out of it. lol

 I buy meat, produce, dairy, oils, spices and other condiments, pasta, rice, beans, for the most part.

Meat I buy chicken, all kinds, beef, ground and chunks, pork ribs and chops, whole chickens, turkeys and hams and the occasional London Broil.
