Does your grocery list overwhelm you?

Recommended Posts

we're having family in town for the next week or so and i'm totally AR about the house being perfect and there being plenty of snack food around and having all the meals planned...i love having people over, but i totally stress myself out.

 

anyway, i just did all my food planning and made my grocery list and i'm totally freaked out...i have TWO pages of legal pad paper full of groceries that i need to go pick up, its just ridiculous and the thought of actually getting in the car and going to the store and probably needing two carts for it all is too much for me right now so i'm just sitting on the porch screwing around on BDW and chain smoking until i can summon the energy and courage to tackle this shopping trip.

 

anyway, just hoping i'm not the only one who feels this way sometimes...!

Holy Moly, that sounds like too many groceries! I would def split it into 2 trips. Or make FI do it. I hate food shopping, so I only go if Matt makes me.

I'm just like you i love entertaining but stress myself out about it. I want everything to be perfect and everyone to have things they like. I go nuts!!!

 

Can your fi go to the grocery store with you? so he can at least help cross things off the list or push the cart.

hahaha...the grocery store is like FI's own personal hell, he can't even come in with me when i just have a few things to pick. if its not people stopping suddenly in the aisles so he almost crashes into him its getting lost wandering around or feeling pressured when its his turn at the deli meat counter...its actually pretty freaking hilarious to see, but i love him too much to put him through it with this trip.

 

i'm just glad i'm not the only one who freaks out a bit about entertaining.

I'm probably the odd-ball that loves to grocery shop. It's probably because I'm a chef. THe funny thing is that I have no good food in my house! If I cook all day it's cereal or pizza.

 

DH and I cannot go shopping together. We ALWAYS end up getting into some stupid fight over the tiniest thing.

 

I agree, go when it is later so you can avoid the crowds. I'm sure everyone will be appreciative of anything you have to offer. Did you consider a make your own night so you don't have to do as much cooking? Maybe tacos or paninis or pasta? Just get the raw ingredients and cook it right then.
