I did it.
Seriously, I did something today that may put me forever in the “gay” category.
Well, maybe not gay as in sex in the butt, but definitely gay as in I shouldn’t have a penis any more.
Let me explain.
As I wrote a few days ago, I found an amazing supermarket where things are dirt cheap.
It’s called Vallarta Supermarkets and I am obsessed with it.
Not only can I get some good cheap food, but I can also eat healthy for not a lot of money and have lost some weight because of it.
Anyway, I needed some chicken today and was going to take a road trip to the “good” Vallarta’s, when I remembered that my friend Paul had never been to this one.
I called him up and was like, “hey, I’m headed to Vallarta’s want to come?”
Paul was like, “Well, I’m working right now, but sure I can take a break!”
We got into the beast, (what I call my convertible) and drove to the market.
So, now I have been relegated to going to the supermarket with my guy friends to get food that’s on sale.
You know what?
Tomatoes were 33 cents a pound.
Cilantro was 4 bunches for a buck.
Pickling cucumbers were 99 cents a pound.
Chicken was 59 cents a pound.
Peppers were 33 cents a pound.
Parsley was a quarter.
Radishes were 4 bunches for a dollar.
Finally, I got a box of ice pops that was 5 bucks.
Yup, I spent 16 dollars and now have enough food for the week.
And, when I say enough food, I mean enough good, healthy food.
By the way, in this hard economic times, cooking your own food can actually save you money as well.
See, this weekend I went to Bed Bath and Beyond and got myself a Chop Wizard and a 8 inch J.A. Henckels Chef knife.
What happened to me?
I used to be a man.
Now I’m shopping with Paul for cheap produce.
Maybe I’m just Metro.
