My ashke wanted to know what i bought at Costco. I told her some of it over the phone, but couldn't remember all of it without checking.

Non-food stuff:

Big 12 roll thing of paper towels
Box of garbage sacks

Was out of both those, so decided to take the chance to restock


Big 3 in 1 box of Raisin Bran
Box of Easy Mac packets
6 can pack of pineapple chunks
12 can pack of Monster energy drink
Big box of nutri-grain bars
Two loaf pack of seven grain bread
12 pack of hot dog buns
28 pack of hot dogs
2 pound block of Tillamook chedder cheese
Box of Kozy Shack rice pudding packs
12 pack of yogurt
One of the boxes with two 1 gallon containers of milk (non0fat)
2 bottle pack of A1 sauce
2 bottle pack of ketchup
Box of airheads

Think that's it.

They did have two jar packs of the natural peanut butter i like, but they only had smooth, so i decided not to get any.

All that, and no real food. Oy.

I don't see how you can possibly claim that a 2-lb block of Tilamook Cheddar isn't real food. ;)

Thanks for the support, though i'd claim that some of the other stuff (milk, bread) is pretty clearly food as well :)

Yeah! What about the cheese?

And most people would consider Raisin Bran to be real food, it's not like i'm getting Lucky Charms or something.

Hot dogs are debateable, but _bread_ is certainly real food, especially wheat bread.

And what's wrong with milk and yogurt?!?

And last i heard you were supposed to eat a certain number of servings a day of fruit, how is pineapple any worse than apples or oranges or whatever?

Nutrigrain bars are fairly healthy, but you're right, they're not real food, nor is mac and cheese or airheads, or ketchup and A1 sauce (aren't i allowed to put stuff on the real food though? =P) or rice pudding or energy drinks.

So what in your mind is "real" food?

I make broad lines for breakfast (and periodically lunch) food, but dinner (or whichever is the main meal of the day) should be more than "pour contents of box into boiling water." [This isn't England, you know ;) ]

If you grated the cheese, then mixed it with macaroni noodles and added some milk and butter on top so the cheese doesn't burn, then baked it for about half an hour at 350, that would be real food. Still macaroni and cheese, but without the artificial processed powdered cheese product.

Pineapple's fine; canned fruit keeps longer than fresh. But you live in Califonia! Fresh fruit should be plentiful and cheap! I got 5 kiwis for a dollar at Berkeley Bowl in June. (Mmm, kiwis.) Also, I recall no vegetables.

Milk doesn't count as food, because it's either something you drink or something you mix with other things (cereal, artificial processed cheese powder product, etc.) And yogurt is food, but it's not something I'd call dinner. Condiments don't count.

I guess it boils down to real food being a) not ridiculously processed and b) something I'd eat for my main meal. I guess I'm turning into a food snob.

At least you didn't get any of those lunchables abominations. Yuck.

Um, for me breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all kind of interchangeable. It's only now that i have anything even remotely breakfast-like.

My main meal is whatever i have for lunch half the time :)

The real question of course is, is the above food (plus tofu, which i don't want to buy in large quantities, and peanut butter which they didn't have) better than cup of noodles every night for dinner, which is the alternative? :)
