We finally got our long awaited grocery delivery yesterday and it was quite the workout. Our gloved and masked delivery lady piled it all up in the back of the pickup for us so we could take our time sorting it out. We could see right away it was a lot more stuff than had showed up last time.
The Mister and I worked as a team. He's the clean person and I'm the dirty one. I haul and wash and then he dries and puts it away. Everything gets a bath. Everything.
I was over the moon to have scored three gallons of water. I've been rationing them to a third of a gallon a day so this should keep me alive for another nine days at least.
The Mister was overjoyed to find meat in the bags. We had a rather sketchy roast-which was better than nothing and......
.....two packages of decent hamburger. I hate dealing with frozen raw meat so it was all cooked and then frozen. I don't eat meat but I have to admit that the house smelled wonderful.
There were eggs......
....and milk. They even had some soy milk. I usually get a shipment of soy from Amazon each month but they just informed me it was now unavailable.
Even better than milk......we got ice cream! We couldn't get any last time and were very happy to have it even if it was just plain vanilla.
....and a giant green pepper. I had to look up how to freeze it because I don't want to waste it. In fact, all that produce is making me nervous. I need to use it up before it goes bad. I am thinking I'll be making a big pot of minestrone tomorrow since I've still got a few of last week's carrots and celery to use up.
I had seven (!) Chewy orders show up over the weekend. I get a monthly delivery but that didn't show up on time so I panic ordered even more. Now I have a lot. We take it all out of the packaging outside and then put it in clean boxes all over the living room.
A couple of my old kitchen wall cabinets that we took down have been put to good use to store even more pet food. I think the critters are set for a while.
Pup doesn't think so. She remembers how panicked I was when I couldn't get any dry food delivered. Now she's standing guard on what did arrive. We took the new food out of their bags and poured it into the old bags that I use for feeding the foxes and other outdoor critters. They sadly are on their own for the duration. I'm sorry but the food that is now in those bags cost me an arm and a leg-and a whole lot of worry.
