Grocery Pick Up is the best
Last week I ordered groceries online for pick up on Saturday morning. This week I’m going to order on Friday for pick up on Sunday afternoon. We’ve got an out of town soccer tournament and will be gone Friday afternoon through late Saturday. That leaves Sunday for groceries, but I don’t want to spend the afternoon in the store. I love being able to order and not even have to go in! And this week I’m determined to remember the toilet paper in the order. Ha!
I’ve tried both Walmart and Kroger pick up. Both are great. Kroger gives more options for leaving notes about things in their online ordering system. However, last week I called Walmart after placing my order because I wanted to have the deli ham shaved very thin. They made a note of it and it was exactly as I requested when I picked it up the next day.
Kroger gives you three free pickups, plus sends other free pick up or free item offers. Walmart doesn’t charge for pickup. In fact, you can use this code to get $10 off your order. That’s my affiliate code. They’ll give you one too, so you can share with friends. I will say, I never could get the code from my friend to work. I tried several times, so maybe it will work for you and maybe not. Ten bucks is worth a try though.
2. Individual Naan Pizzas
I wish I had pictures for you, but I didn’t think about it the other night. I’d been painting Mia’s room (good bye little-girl purple paint and hello white walls!) and making an elaborate dinner wasn’t something I was interested in. Of course, I very rarely make an elaborate dinner anyway!
We’ve been using naan to make pizza for a while now. I browned Italian sausage and sliced red onion for the toppings. We raided the garden for basil. Everyone made their own pizza the way they liked. Minimal work and a wonderful dinner!
3. Podcast listening
Do you listen to podcasts while you cook or do dishes? I do if I’m alone, which is rare around dinner time. I usually listen in the car and while I walk. But I have some good ones I wanted to share with you.
If you love books and reading, you’ll love What Should I Read Next from Anne Bogel of Modern Mrs. Darcy. I got to be a guest on the latest WSIRN podcast! Anne and I talk about comfort reading, books with great food scenes and more. I shared three books I love and one I hate, then Anne recommended three books for me to read.
Sorta Awesome is my favorite way to start every Friday morning. Megan and her co-hosts are fun, informative and make you feel like you’re having coffee with a friend.
The Healthy Moving Podcast from Jen Hoffman is short and always thought provoking and helpful. You can hear me as a guest on episode 41. I talk about my favorite Healthy Moving exercise for headaches. I also really appreciated episode 38 on how to talk about body image with kids.
This week a new podcast launched called The Smartest Person in the Room with Laura Tremaine. The first episode is an interview with Phil Johnston, who is one of the creators of Zootopia and Wreck It Ralph.
Another short podcast I’ve been enjoying lately is That’s the Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe (of Dirty Jobs fame). His podcast reminds me a lot of the old Paul Harvey radio shows that my mom used to listen to. The storytelling is very similar to those Rest of the Story shows.
