Grocery Lists

Another post got me thinking about groceries, what's on your grocery (can include cleaning supplies) lists? Can be whatever, this is also your ideal/regular grocery lists (not like special for special occasions thanksgiving or christmas). Also what's one of your favorite recipes?

Tide (love tide, i'm allergic to like..everything else lol), Cascade, Dawn, Spaghetti Sauce (usually Hunts or Prego), Milk (usually 2%, SO likes soy, but i can't have soy), Corn, Peas, Onions, Apples, Oranges, Bananas, Tuna, Hamburger meat (the 80/20 5lb rolls), Bread (I like the soft Sunbread), Ketchup, Turkey, Sugar, sirloin, margarine, miracle whip, pickle relish, Paper Towels, TP, trash bags, Doritos, Cheerios/Toasted Oats, potatoes, noodles (spaghetti and lasagna), cheese, macaroni and cheese, hot dogs, canned pears, chicken, grapes.

Will probably think of other things to add later.

I'm a picky eater, plus i have allergies, and am insulin resistant, any suggestions for more foods? I'm (foodwise) allergic to cherries, strawberries, and peaches (and air lol).

My favorite dish is lasagna, though i don't get to make it much.

note: this is NOT a bash post at all, just a curiousity everyone has different food tastes and different dietary needs/situations, the first bash, i will delete.

I only grocery shop 2 times a month so my list is quite lenghty.

I buy whatever is on my menu plan for the 2 weeks, paper products, dog food, pet food, cleaning supplies, diapers (if needed)...

Really just the normal stuff I guess

ETA: MY favorite dish is Grilled Chicken with a boursin sauce, side of sauteed green beans, and stuffed mushrooms (now I do not have that often but its my favorite)

That's something I need to do, is make a menu plan every week, as I never know what to make from day to day, whats on your menu?

We make a dinner list a month in advance.  We go shopping every Monday morning and get the items needed for that weeks' dinners plus cereal, milk, drinks, snacks for our girls after school, lunch stuff for my hubby and I that week and whatever household essentials we need.

 I don't have a grocery list - I buy what I feel like. I always load up on absurd amounts of veggies and fruits - then I just make sure that I always have the staples in my kitchen so that I can cook from scratch. For the most part I don't allow processed foods in my house like chips and soda and such. My momma always told me to shop by the rainbow, make sure you have fruits and veggies that are yellow, red, orange, green, blue and purple.

* I do however, eat junk food now and then. I still let my family have a break from healthy food!
