I really dislike shopping of almost any sort, except grocery shopping. And as someone with some unusual food allergies, I read ingredient labels for everything, all the time. I can rarely find any prepared soups that do not have canola oil or coconut oil in them, for example. But tonight, I had a coupon for a Dole brand "garden soups" package - and the Sweet Corn Soup is safe! I was inordinately excited, it get like a major victory! I have not even tried it yet, but am just happy it is a possibility for some day when I feel like having soup, but do not have the time or ingredients to make some from scratch - which usually ends up being the case, that and most recipes make a far bigger quantity than I need. And I even got a cat aline for another coupon, in case it actually tastes good!
And Paul had a shopping victory on my behalf today, too! I love adding, and as long as I shop carefully, it is safe for me to have. Good and good for ya, even. And by shopping at a particular supermarket, he got me 4 packages of pudding cups, all Karen-safe, for less than 50¢ per 4-pack! My fridge is well stocked, and I had given him a list of the kinds without coconut i or canola, and he got 3 different kinds!
What shopping victories have you had lately?
