Here I am, with summer sales, and happy grocery thoughts. Corn, tomatoes, watermelon are the basis of at least half my summer meals, being cheap and requiring very little in the way of cooking. Are you wondering how Cheepie feels about all those watermelon salads that started turning up all over the place a few summers back? The ones with the feta and mint, and what-all? No? Too bad. I’m here to tell you watermelon doesn’t go with cheese. It can go with mint. That’s fine. Please don’t mess up your watermelon and feta by mixing them together.
This week is kind of a mixed bag, with HEB’s listings thin on the ground, and Randalls/Sprouts with too many, and certain days. This week I’ll be getting corn and strawberries at HEB, frozen fruit, butter, milk and tuna at Randalls, and berries, grapes, watermelon and cheese (under $2/lb for the first time in a while!) at Sprouts.
Fiesta has some great meat prices, but I’m still trying to cycle out my freezer so I can defrost it. Because wire shelves shouldn’t be 6 inches thick and require a power tool to release a brisket. So I’m told.
