The cheese, tuna, bread, milk, Half and Half, and popcorn is for me. The cheese and milk are for use in a recipe I picked up for savory zucchini bread. Half and Half is for my coffee. Tuna was to replace my stockpile. Popcorn was on sale, and it keeps forever, so I picked some up. The bread is to give me something to put the tuna on.
The papaya, pineapple, cranberries, carrots, and lettuce are for the bunnies.
The sunflower seeds, apples, and grapes will be shared between bunnies and parrots.
The cat food is for the stupid feral cat, who is eating me out of house and home at SIXTEEN BUCKS A BAG!!!
I wanted to buy pine nuts for the parrots, and usually fight my gag reflex at $17/lb, because the parrots love their pine nuts, but the price had gone up to $23/lb!!!! So the parrots are just going to have to wait and eat their pistachio nuts, and pine nuts will become a "special" treat.
