Because of Fluther I’m having a double decker tuna sandwich and canned asparagus. And vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup. Maybe a mini candy bar too.
I’M TRYING!!

Piece of toast, blueberry tea and Cadbury’s chocolate. I had a big lunch!

Dutchess_III's avatar

I didn’t do the asparagus. I had fried mushrooms instead. Too full for ice cream now.

Oooh, I’ll take your ice cream!!!

Meatballs, zucchini and corn. Small piece of chocolate cookie for dessert.

I ordered some stuff from a fresh market near me today. I don’t usually do instacart from there but I wanted some blueberry syrup for my pancakes so I got some other stuff too so delivery would be free. So I had a lovely chicken salad on toast sandwich for dinner, one of these types of cookies that I bought from that store that were just wonderful, and a few malted milk balls.

I helped the Girl Scouts with the annual Cookie Booth at the local mall from 6 to 8. My daughter is a Girl Scout. It’s kind of fun doing the cookie booth and there’s only one more year of it until she graduates. Anyway, I decided I was going to get Chinese food take out after, since I knew it would be about 9 o’clock by the time we got home. I called and ordered shrimp with string beans and a shrimp roll (egg roll). I went to McD’s and got us Diet Cokes and I got my daughter French fries. The Chinese food was about 24 dollars which, had I known it would be so much, I wouldn’t have chosen that for dinner. I added on 3 dollars tip. When I got home, I ate the egg roll and then I was kind of full. I had a few bites of the shrimp with string beans and I was full. My daughter probably finished it.

Had I known I would be full after the egg roll, I would have bought only the egg roll for about 3 dollars total and saved myself 20-something dollars.

I made Beef Stroganoff with a side of peas. It got a bit salty and I’m not entirely sure how. Not inedible, just saltier than I wanted it.

@seawulf575 Have you ever heard that putting a piece of peeled potato in a cooking sauce or soup will draw out some of the salt? I have heard it many times but never tried it. Just thought I’d pass that along. We love stroganoff around here too.

seawulf575's avatar

@SnipSnip Yes, I’ve heard of it. But usually I don’t need it for something like stroganoff. It wasn’t horrible, just saltier than what I expected since I didn’t go overboard with salt. Mrs. Wulf said it tasted good, but I’m my own worst food critic sometimes. And this is just a mystery to me and I hate not understanding why it was salty. I’m destined to make it salty again if I just let it go. Maybe it was the cream of mushroom soup? I dunno.

Cheese quesadillas

For appetizers I had egg rolls stuffed with with onion, cabbage, celery, and carrots. They came with two dipping sauces. The apricot(?) sauce was good but the spicy mustard was too hot: even though I had only about 0.1% of a teaspoon occasionally with a bite, it made me cough when I inhaled.

For the main course I had chicken breast with potatoes, onions, bell peppers, and carrots in a yellow curry sauce.

After that I had some blackberries.

I need to figure out the Instacart thing…

RocketGuy's avatar

I’m too stingy to order from Instacart.

jca2's avatar

Me too, @RocketGuy. Anything involving fees I try to avoid when possible. Then add a tip onto that – forget it.

jca2's avatar

I just googled Instacart fees out of curiosity. They have more fees than I realized. Granted, this is not from their site but from elsewhere.

Walmart curbside pick-up has no additional fees if you order more than $35. I am pretty sure their delivery fee is just that, only a delivery fee and not an increase on the price of the food. Instacart charges more for the food plus a delivery fee.

RocketGuy's avatar

@JLeslie – I forgot about that. They increase the item cost, add delivery fee, then expect a good tip. I used to order takeout from our favorite Korean place thru Yelp, but Yelp went thru GrubHub. GrubHub increased the item price, then took a percentage. The restaurant made less $ that way. They pointed me to their website where they had regular pricing and got to keep all of it.

Actually, if you have a rewards card or whatever the store calls it, you can enter it in and get the sale prices. I also have a plus membership which means I don’t have fees. And with a heart problem and back issues, it’s well worth it for me to tip somebody to shop for me, and then lug it up to my second floor apartment.

I remember one time, it was snowing lightly and I didn’t want to go out but I wanted dinner. I looked at the online menu for a restaurant that’s about a mile from my house. They had a 25 dollar minimum for delivery, plus a delivery fee of $5. When I thought about it, and what I wanted to order, I was thinking 25 dollars plus tax, plus the 5 dollar delivery fee, plus a tip, we’re looking at about 40 dollars. I decided to find something to eat in the house instead. I wouldn’t pay 40 dollars for dinner in the house by myself – it’s not that critical.
