What I Don’t Eat at Walgreens

20 Sep

The past few times I mentioned this project to any male person, the response I’ve  received is “you must be eating a lot of frozen pizza.”  I’ve actually yet to have any frozen pizza since this began. The DiGirono frozen pizza costs six bucks. Domino’s has been running a $5.99 for a carryout order of a two-topping, medium pizza most of the summer.  Why would I eat frozen pizza if I can get a hot pizza that was baked in an oven that probably gets to 600 degrees or better?  Yeah, the frozen pizza is probably bigger for the same price, but I live alone.  I don’t want to eat 2-day old frozen pizza, so I don’t need a pizza that big.

I also haven’t eaten any frozen Stouffer’s or Marie Callender’s dinners either.  And I certainly haven’t had any of the P.F. Chang’s frozen dinners.  Why pay $8 bucks for a P.F. Chang’s frozen dinner when I can get a cooked dinner at Pei Wei for $7.50?  And it’s the same company.  Also no frozen burritos, shrimp bowls, Hot Pockets, Lean Pockets, White Castle Burgers, pot pies, or Lean Cuisine meals. Surprisingly, I also don’t really eat that much tuna.

I’ve been loving making sandwiches using an English muffin as the bread.  Like a breakfast sandwich with an egg and bacon and cheese.  It’s kinda like an Egg McMuffin but more delicious.  And I made this fantastic BLT the other day.  SO good.

I was pretty proud of myself for that sandwich.

    I’m currently addicted to English muffins. Except I am going to Satellite constantly for them. Bad idea. Which brand of English muffins does Walgreen’s carry?

      They carry Bay’s English muffins. They’re pretty ok.

    Funny you mention the BLT since I’ve been craving one the last couple of days! I don’t usually buy bacon since I so rarely eat it but I may just have to stop at Walgreen’s for the fixin’s… you inspired me 🙂

      Yeah, i didn’t actually get the tomatoes or lettuce from walgreens. The lettuce came from my landlord who was going out of town, and the tomatoes I grew. But the bacon at walgreens is good. Just some old school oscar mayer bacon.

    Ha, I had no idea that Walgreens carries bacon! I’ve been obsessed with this mini bagels (100 calories each) that I got from the grocery store the other day. I’ve made mini sandwiches, mini pizzas, mini cream cheese and strawberry jam bagels … yum!! You’ve now inspired me to make bagel BLTs 🙂
