Grocery Shopping Anyone?

I was talking to one of my friends (who will remain nameless!) about her eating habits at home.  She told me that she never cooks and that her and her significant other eat out EVERY day!  AND she said that she doesn't have groceries in her house either.  Oh AND he prefers to eat out everyday!!!  WTH?  Boogie has a heart attack if we eat out more than twice a week.  BOO TO HIM!  Anyway, she says she doesn't have milk, eggs or bread!  They are a young couple and have no kids so this will change eventually I think.  But who doesn't have milk???? do you eat cereal on Saturday mornings?  Oh and she said she doesn't have cereal either! That is a sin...seriously.

My situation is different so I shouldn't judge.  Not only do I live with two adult children (one is 32 and the other is 20) but hello....have I mentioned that I like to eat too??  I always have snacks, milk, cereal, bread, potatoes, tortillas and weinees in my house at any given time.  Sometimes eggs and weinees for dinner hits the spot!!

How often do you go grocery shopping?  Is your fridge empty???  Do you cook every night???  I'm guessing this is what her fridge looks like.

Oh, and she also doesn't wash his clothes! HOW THE HECK DID SHE MANAGE THAT ONE???  Boogie wouldn't even know how to turn on the washing machine! And if he did figure it out he would totally ruin all of our clothes. But I still love him....promise! 

So to my friend I say...I think you need to marry this one. ;)  He's self sufficient so that means he's a keeper!


  1. OK. I shop multiple times a week, always with a list in hand. We always have lots of healthy and fresh food in the house! With regard to laundry, John does most of it! I am so lucky!

  2. I totally don't get the eating out all the time thing. I love me some home cooking!!! I cook every night, with the rare exception of Friday night and possibly Saturday if we have plans. And Randy usually grills on Sundays. But we rarely ever eat out. As far as grocery shopping goes, believe it or not - Randy does the grocery shopping. I think he just uses that as an excuse to get out of the house for a couple of hours. LOL Oh, and he knows I won't buy all of the junk food that he buys. Ask any of our friends that come over to our house - they always open our pantry and marvel at how fully stocked it is. HAHA! I do most of the laundry, but Randy will help out on that. I have to say I am pretty lucky because Randy does help me out a lot with stuff around the house!

  3. Where the hell did you ladies find these men?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

  4. Blanca, I've been married for over 15 years. Let's just say it has taken a LOT of training and it is a continual work in progress. LOL

  5. It occurred to me last night that maybe the reason we eat out every night is because maybe Jose doesn’t like my cooking that much. He would rather pay for us to eat out than eat food I've cooked? Well he's stuck with me now!
