Can you spot what’s wrong with my grocery pics?

I didn’t buy this meat…

fly on steak

…but when I passed by the meat section at the grocery store down the street, this slab of dead cow stuck out to me. The package say it’s “Good” and “Freshness Guaranteed”, but with that dead fly chillin’ by the package, I beg to differ. Is it gross, or what? Definitely something wrong here. Where’s a food inspector when ya need him?

And next???

Shoppin’ at Trader Joe’s ya’ll. $42 worth of cereal. 16 boxes in all. You don’t even wanna know how much almond milk I have to buy to accommodate all this cereal.

I trek the 20 miles to TJ’s because they carry Envirokidz non-GMO cereal. I feel good about giving that to my child spawns instead of the chemically, GMO-enhanced Froot Loops ‘n such.

As you can see, I stock up big time. But what’s wrong with the situation and what’s downright disturbing? All that cereal won’t even last two weeks. The greedy mouths in my household are a perplexing mystery beyond explanation. It’s like the X-Files up in here.

Please commence to feeling sorry for me now. Dealing with dead flies and paying $42 for cereal is causing me to need your emotional support. Prop me up, ya’ll. Share in my pain.

    I had no idea about non GMO cereal, but I don’t let the kids have the sugar stuff. I wonder if Cheerios and Chex are GMO? Will have to check this out.

    I was talking to a friend the other day and she was lamenting about how she had to go out and get more milk. I told her I could imagine how much milk they did drink with 10 kids [yes, she has 10!] and she laughed and said “Do you ever wish you could limit the amount of milk they drink? I mean, I know I can’t, it’s milk, but….sometimes….” I laughed and agreed with her because boy-o even with two kids left at home [at least on holidays] we go through some serious milk. It’s all good.

    And I ain’t even commenting on the fly. ICK.

    PS – sorry I am not around so much but my sketch internet does not like to load your blog for me. I don’t know why – but today I got lucky and got this post loaded. So don’t go thinking I don’t love ya’ anymore, cause I do. It’s my internet that doesn’t. giggle

      Hi Momma! So glad you were allowed out of Interwebs jail to visit me today. Yes, General Mills and Kellogg’s cereals contain GMOs. It’s been a painful, sad process weaning the kids off of their “happy” cereals. But it had to be done. A quick Google search for “GMO cereals” will bring up a ton of results for you to read through and get pissed off about.
      LOVE YOU!

  13. Hope says:

    yeah, the fly IS pretty gross. I can’t believe your family goes through all that cereal in 2 weeks. Yikes! I can’t empathize with you about the cereal, but big up to you that you’re buying the good stuff.

  14. mimi says:

    Have you tried hiding some of the cereal and telling them they have to make it last? It works here, although i do have to keep changing my hiding places.

    You do have my sympathy, though, i’ve got such greedy mouths here, too.

  15. UGH on that meat!!!! I would stay away from that place period based on that! TJ love period! :)
