Shirley, it DOES make the best chicken salad ever. I just got me a mini food processor a while back and I am going to make me some smooth chicken salad. I love it that way just never had the means to make it.
As for Publix being high priced, well, some things are higher, but just think about it this way....many of their things are higher in QUALITY. AND, I prefer PUBLIX brands over name brand stuff too. It's very high quality stuff. Their spaghetti sauce is da bomb and their milk is better than any other milk around. It doesn't have added hormones, preservatives, ect.... and it's cheaper than the milk at WM. YOU also have to shop their "specials" or "ads". Their BOGO items are half price if you only want one item instead of two, not like other stores where you have to buy both items to get them for half the price. I hate going to Winn Dixie and won't buy their BOGO items most of the time if I only need one thing. The only think I like about Winn Dixie are their MEAL DEALS. LOL Like when you buy 2 pizza for $10.99 and get a 2 liter, some kind of appetizer, ice cream or dessert and usally 1 more item (I can't think this early in the morning to remember). Kyle works late some nights and it's just so easy to pop in a frozen pizza for him for a late night snack. An geez, does that man like icecream. I think this is why he's putting on so much weight, cause he's eating late at night before coming to bed. Most nights I'm already in bed when he gets in so I can't be the FOOD POLICE then. Bless his heart, if he keeps his up, he will need WLS. Most of you that know my husband will remember him as being TALL AND LANKY. Well, that is NOT the case anymore. I remember those days when he had to drink BOOST and ENSURE to keep his weight UP. Now the doctor is telling him it's time to to loose some weight. Ya'll, in the last 3 years he's gone from a 34/34 to a 44/34. That's a lot of weight and he wonders why he hurts all the time....I keep telling him it's the weight causing his problems.
So, well, there ya have it. I view on shopping for groceries AND weight gain. LOL
Everyone have a blessed day.
Noel, I'm sorry, I've been away from the board for quite some time. What's going on with you? Why can't you eat? Take it easy girl and get your protein in, okay? I don't know what happened to my dumpling's the other night but the dough disintegrated and wound up with very little dumpling's. :( It tasted good, but my Daddy complained about the actual lack of dumpling's.
