This is what ‘not going grocery shopping’ looks like during a pandemic!

Grocery shopping: that mundane task we all must do to feed our bodies. Even though I’m ordering groceries primarily online, I just never know if I’ll get all the groceries I ordered, and it still feels like such a chore.

I don’t know about you, but there are days that I’m not feeling it! Recently, I had one of those days.

Since I decided not to do my grocery shopping, I had to get creative and whip up something for my husband and 2 sons (all over 6 feet — help!). But, having learned from my late mother how to make a meal out of practically nothing, I didn’t sweat it.

I took an inventory of what I had on hand:

  • 6 chicken tenders
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 1/2 bag of yellow rice
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1/2 bag of frozen, southwestern corn
  • 1 pack of flour tortillas
  • 1 pack of fajita seasoning
  • 1 jar of mango salsa

Immediately I went into stealth mode and decided to cook chicken fajitas with yellow rice, black beans/corn, and a side salad. The next time you decide not to do your grocery shopping—don’t panic, just get creative!
