I Better Go Shopping

Green Apple, Granny SmithImage via Wikipedia
We've got a teenage boy in the house again, and he seems to think there's nothing to eat around here.  He might have complained about the food on campus, but he really appreciated the convenience of always being able to grab something if he wanted it.  Here, I don't have much in the way of convenience foods - and he's already getting tired of his all-time favorite, Ramen.

So, I need to go shopping and pick up some pizzas, frozen burritos, fish sticks, etc.  And I need to be sure I'm fixing some good things for dinner, so he'll get some real food, too - with vegetables.  I need to be sure we have salad and lettuce at all times, because he loves that, and it's healthy.  And plenty of Granny Smith apples.

Thankfully pizzas are on sale this next week, and salad too.  I just need to decide what else to put on the list.  I don't want him eating all convenience foods - he'll get plenty of that when he goes back to school in the Fall - so I need to think of as many easy-to-fix, easy-to-grab foods that are also healthy.  He made it through his first year of college without gaining that dreaded 'Freshman 15' and definitely doesn't need to worry about weight-loss suplements like myoripped, so I don't want it to be worse being home.  I also don't want to hear him complaining that there's nothing to eat.
