Shaw's Supermarket Chat Thread

This thread is being created for the OT chat that goes into the Shaw's Deals thread. We are a chatty bunch and have become an extended family. I heart the OT chat, but agree that sometimes we just want to read about the deals. So hopefully this thread will help decrease the OT in the deals thread and we all have a place to chat with each other.

So, I have been collecting a few different types of gortons fish fillets to try. Have about 5 boxes in the freezer, kept seeing them cheaper at the next store. Pulled one out tonight to try, garlic butter, open the box and I find a coupon, woohoo right, not so fast, the coupon is expired as of 12/2011... Find that strange so I check the box out and can't find a best by date, which I remember not being able tho find when I bought them... So I put that one back in the freezer and pull out another, finally found the best by date on the second box, its not stamped on like other things, it kind of flows with the writing on the box, so I found it difficult to see. I pull out the first box and check in the same spot, this box of frozen fish that I bought exactly one week ago from the market basket in Portsmouth on Woodbury ave expired in OCTOBER 2010!!! So nasty. I called the store to let them know they need to check the other boxes.

I ate the Italian herb Pollock, it was pretty tasty, and only 1 net carb per serving.

Hmm Ive been searching pinterest I swear all night. Trying to think of stuff I want to cook this weekend. Im so sick of the same stuff.

I hate trying new things incase they are a bust LOL.. Damn some stuff on there just looks so tasty if only I didnt have to make it hehe..

Im gonna try a crockpot recipe for pork loin i think since its on sale at S&S i thinking sunday though so I can be lazy haha. Maybe Lasanga roll ups friday night they look tasty but the kids wont eat them. I will have to make regular pasta for them as well.
Saturday i was thinking to go out to dinner (we got some GC for xmas) even better if I can get a sitter for a few hours and go kid free. Hubby works out of town all week so I was thinking it might be nice to catch up a little wo the kiddos and the craziness of a restaurant w them. We shall see though.

Anyone doing anything fun this weekend?
Why not just search for recipes rather than pinterest? I have good luck just googling 'recipe followed by a few ingredients I have on hand or plan to get'

As for something fun to do, tomorrow is my birthday. So, tonight I am having dinner with my brother and his wife and my dh. My SIL birthday was Tuesday. Then tomorrow I am going out to brunch with dh and both sons. Then dh and I are going to a play which sounded good to me (and reasonably priced) back in December but I can't remember the name of it now. So it's a 'surprise', lol!

Manners-gluten free cooking...google celiac teen. Great blog, awesome recipes. Not sure I'd pay for a class unless I was unsure of my baking skills. Lots of blogs have plenty if good info and recipes.

Liz- I know plenty of organic milk has dha varieties, which is for brain development...I think. My guess is there may be some debate on whole versus skim and it depends on what your particular doctor believes in.

You guys inspired me to weigh myself the other night. Back to about ten pounds less than before the move. Only forty mire to go, lol.

Bought a Canon Rebel at work with holiday money. We try to actually spend it on frivolous thing every couple years...and its not completely frivolous. I will be trying to walk more to take pics at the beach, plus blog more with better pics. Plus maybe taking pics of inventory at the sewing shop.
Thanks Ang...it is not something I would go to on my own....and knowing her she wouldnt go alone either but thought maybe she would if we went toghether. It is part of the community ed program. Will definitely google that

Here this weekend is football and umm...football. It is yuck out so nothing outside. Got some canning to do...marmalade yum

Have had quite a few problems with MB w/ expired product in my area which is one of the reasons I don't shop them often anymore. I think they just assume that they get so much volume that they don't need to rotate product, and I have gotten some rude service trying to take expired product back to MB. I had brown hamburger that looked fresh on the top and have seen expired mouthwash from them. Plus, a few years back, a deli employee dropped a block of cheese (I understand it was a honest accident) and still tried to slice and then sell it to me. I can see a product expired by a month or so that doesn't move much which is the extent of the problems I see at Hannaford and S&S though. Fresh food is more understandable and is something to scrutinize more but there is no excuse for frozen food and nonperishables. But 2 years old on a box of gortons is enough for me to gag. It's a reason why I shop TJ's the most; with non redundancy in the selection = product moves fast so usually the shelves are almost clear before they stock it again.

Though, I should say I've dropped a good amount of money at Shaw's in recent weeks thanks to the GC cat deals and coupons they've been running, and the milk was 5 days to expiration, and yogurt was expired by 3 days. Makes me think twice to spend much more there. A lot of cereal only 2 months to expiration too.

Gorton fish isn't bad, I don't mind eating expired stuff. laugh out loud I probably had a box in my freezer since who knows when and I made it a few months back and it was pretty tasty...I think it was lemon and black pepper or something was 3g carb from what I can remember...

Props to you; try to stay in cycles 1 and 2. Decided to go to Shaw's again with all the coupons out on their website. When you combine the $4 off $25 w/ the 4 gotta love great deal coupons, it's quite good. Ended up walking out with a very healthy basket of groceries for $37 mainly using store coupons with a PSP of $75. Finding Tribe hummus for $1.50 was great after bogo savings; I know there's probably a coupon out for it but I usually buy TJ's brand.

MMo3, when I do the swap alot between going low carb to eating carbs I feel very bloated like a balloon. laugh out loud I'm still sick so hopefully by next week I'll be able to start.

I do try to stay low carb at work. laugh out loud

Coffee, 2 splendas, 1 half & half individual
Some bacon

Baked sweet potato, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper
mixed greens, creamy caesar dressing, shredded italian cheese, boiled egg

dinner, not so well, after going shopping got really hungry and bought wendy's Facepalm
Yup, that's how I felt! I had a really good week this week, feel good Smilie
Sounds like a good menu for work!
Lol to Wendy's, we're all human!!! Smilie

I so agree when I work out sometimes I'm so sore for like 3 days that the stairs kill me!!! I can't imagine the work out they do or the hrs they do and being able to move. Never mind that they are in way worse shape than me.
Agreed!

I don't mind eating expired stuff either, but it was 2 years expired when I purchased it... I do have limits!!!! laugh out loud if it was in my own freezer, I don't know that I would have eaten it after 2 years though, maybe one...

Thanks Smilie
I hear ya, you have to make the decision for your self, which cycle are you most comfortable in? I would imagine cycle 1 would be tough to maintain for a long time. 2 and 3 sound more like life time cycles. Good luck and let us know how you do!!

Weighed in this morning, down exactly 4 more lbs. Either I had a lot of water weight to lose this week or the exercise is working! 16.6 total now.

How's everyone else doing?
