so, today was food pantry day. for a quick review: we go the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month. there are 8 people in my family, 2 of whom have gluten and dairy allergies.

it was raining/sleeting, cold, and miserable when we went, and we made it just before they closed.

(please forgive weird typing or phrasing. i have a muscle spasm between my shoulder blades, and i took a muscle relaxer and a vicodin because even breathing is intensely painful. no, i didn't drive!)

here is what we received today:

1 medium size turkey, maybe 10 pounds or so

1 pound of beef stew meat

1 package of 4 links chicken and apple sausage

6 red skinned potatoes

1 box Stove Top stuffing

2 1 pound bags of white rice

1 bag plain breadsticks

1 bag kaiser rolls

4 pumpkin chocolate chip muffins

5 packs assorted flavours of gum

5 fruit roll-ups

1 30 oz can pumpkin pie filling

1 12 oz can of tuna in water

2 cans corn

2 cans sliced potatoes

2 boxes cheddar shells and cheese

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 can sliced pears

1 can sliced peaches

1 roll of paper towels

1 box of Puffs tissues

1 15 count bag of dishwasher detergent packets

so there you have it. today's food pantry box. i'm particularly glad for the turkey and potatoes. i've got the beef stew meat in the fridge for tomorrow.
