Lisa and I did our March grocery shopping trip Tuesday so we are all stocked up for awhile. We hadn’t done one since February 7th so we were behind schedule. I did a smaller grocery haul at Aldi’s just before my 1950s menu week and have just been filling in as needed.
As always, we enjoyed our day together. We started by dropping off our glass recycling and then had lunch at Scratch, our favorite restaurant in Norman. This trip we decided to limit our shopping to Norman rather than going to Oklahoma City. There were storms predicted for early evening so we kept our trip short and were back in Ada around 5 p.m.

These sliders are amazing. We split them and get an extra order of fries. Oh, my goodness. So delicious!

- frozen french fries
- salted caramel ice cream
- one bunch fresh flowers (lilies – they made the car smell so good on the way home!)
Note: I used to specify which items were organic but I’m not doing that anymore. The vast majority is organic and it just got tedious typing that so often. If you are curious about a specific item leave me a comment and I’ll tell you whether or not it was organic.
This is a pretty odd assortment of items, I’ll admit.
- Mrs. Meyer’s lilac scented dish soap
- Pepperidge Farms salted caramel Milano cookies (Milano’s are the only store-bought cookie I like and I’d never seen this flavor – yum!)
- almond cookies (the kind we used to get in Chinese restaurants – bought them for my mom)
- Chicken in a Biskit crackers (We always had these around when I was a kid. I can’t remember the last time I bought them.)
- teeny, tiny star shaped pasta (So cute! Expect a recipe using this pretty soon.)
- organic chicken breasts
- mineral-based concealer (ridiculously expensive but Lisa said it was good – it is!)
- Pyrex lidded food storage container (I’m gradually replacing most of my plastic with glass.)
- glass pitcher (it’s iced tea season!)
- 1/2 gallon milk
Grand Total: $188.81
I had bought cheese and a few other items from the co-op last week. I also bought baby back ribs and a round steak at Aldi’s last week which I put in the freezer. I’m still trying to work my way through my freezer and pantry so that is why I didn’t buy much this time. Pretty soon the farmers market will open and I want to have room in my freezer to put up some local produce. I may do some canning, too.

I’m loving my Instant Pot. If you decide to purchase one, I’d be forever grateful if you’d use my affiliate link. It doesn’t cost you a penny more but I receive a small portion of the purchase price from Amazon. Thank you for supporting Life With Dee!
Love this limited edition lilac scent:
