Feel like you’re fine dining in a fancy restaurant when you dish up this Italian Skillet Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Artichokes.
I just got back from the grocery store, so I’m feeling a little bit of anxiety. Okay, kind of a lot of anxiety. Grocery shopping is not fun for me.
Every time I walk into a grocery store, it’s like entering a war zone or a mine field where no matter what isle I turn down, there is potential for disaster. Grocery shopping combines two of my greatest panic catalysts: spending money and wasting food.
You would think that being a food blogger, I would enjoy the creativity that comes from perusing a market, gathering a medley of ingredients that I can use to assemble fresh, flavorful food.
Quite the opposite.
I freeze in the store, racking my brain over unit prices and how I can utilize EVERYTHING that goes into my cart. I stare at fruits and veggies that I would like to buy, but unfortunately do not qualify under my “cheap enough” category. Let’s just say we end up eating a lot of apples, bananas, and oranges. Berries are kind of a novelty around here. I wish I didn’t care so much. But, I do.
Our veggie variety is most often comprised of carrots, celery, and lettuce. Radishes, beets, leeks, asparagus??? Sorry Charlie, there ain’t no room for you in my psycho budget. You’ll have to wait for another day; a day where you are the manager’s special….
