This is Not A HOAX

18 Jan

“You ‘say’ that you don’t buy anything.  You ‘say’ that you’re cleaning the pantry and freezer out.  But, you also share your grocery bill.  There are a whole bunch of meals being eaten that you aren’t telling us about. This must be a ‘hoax’.”

Since this is essentially the week of coming clean, I guess I should too.

The Great Purge is NOT A HOAX.

Does it have rules?  Yes.

Have I shared them all?  Probably not.

Here goes:

Rules:

The Great Purge involves purchasing no proteins (to be used for the supper meal);

The Great Purge does not allow for purchasing of any starches (pasta, potato, rice, etc);

The Great Purge is the main way we are eating all supper meals;

All types (fresh, frozen and canned) of fruits and vegetables are allowable purchases;

Proteins are purchased for breakfast (sausage, bacon, eggs and milk) and for kids’ school lunches (string cheese, sliced cheese and lunch meat, peanut butter);

Starches are purchased for non-supper meals (potato chips for kid lunches, bread for sandwiches, flour and sugar for baking purposes);

The Great Purge does not prevent us from eating out.

——————————————————————-

That’s the whole list.

If you are following #ByTheNumbers, my next blog post will focus on what I’m buying at the grocery store.
