The Wife wants to make crab soup this weekend, so I went out and bought a big crab, some crab stock, whipping cream, sherry, and a few other ingredients for the soup.

The stores here are crazy. Walmart and Giant Eagle are no longer operating 24 hours, in hopes to help have time to have shelves properly stocked. Marc's is limiting the quantities of what people can buy, so there is plenty of everything.

I panicked shopped yesterday...a box of 42 K-cups, and 2 large bottles of Peppermint Mocha Creamer. I'm all set for a quarantine now. :lol:

^^ What happened?

Today I went to CVS, mainly to pick up my medicine, but I also got some deodorant and vitamin pills. I wanted to get Fitbit batteries, but they were all out-- I did finally remember to get batteries for my metal detector, though. Their shelves were fully stocked, and a couple of their refrigerated display cases (or whatever you call them) seemed a little sparse, but not so much that I would have noticed if I hadn't been looking.

Things were very different than usual at Stop & Shop, though, but not disastrous. The shelves were noticeably depleted, but everything was organized and stacked in front. There were store employees all over the place, restocking as fast as they could. They didn't seem to be out of anything, although the paper goods aisle was the emptiest. But I saw lots of paper towels, and lots of customers were carrying toilet paper. And there were lots more customers than is typical for Sunday morning.

I got everything I intended to, easily enough, although there were only two bags of BBQ chips left. I also got shampoo, a chicken pot pie, cinnamon breakfast pastries, and Arizona Iced Tea.

I might go the store first thing in the morning when they open, just to pick up a few things before all the germs arrive.

I bought bread, eggs, a lovely cabbage, milk and some Roquefort cheese (perfect with the pears I bought the previous day) on Saturday.
Today, I got a tube of tomato concentrate, a bunch of tulips and some maracuja juice. And 3 books :book:
Tomorrow I'll be out in the country and shall try to get toilet paper since I have only enough left for a week. And I might perhaps get some of the bread baking mix my sister uses. It's pretty good.

That's a great idea. We should do the same thing.

Went into our local market and got...

A gallon of water (a limit to 1 per customer though)
A Marie Calendars Kansas Style Pulled pork and Mac & Cheese meal.
2 cans of cat food.

It wasn't as crazy as before and some shelves were restocked but things were still rather picked over.

That reminds me, my other prescription is ready. Maybe I should grab some food at CVS, just to be on the safe side.
