    They're using those for the french toast, pancakes, and waffles, I guess.

    I was able to get a couple of heads of cabbage, some onions and some cauliflower yesterday as well as apples. Canned goods, paper goods and cleaning supplies are totally non-existent in Tucson.

    Re: Grocery Store Update:

    Have you all found a good delivery service? I was looking at instacart but then read a ton of horrible reviews. Are you ordering online at supermarkets and then picking up? I did this at sprouts once but had some tweaker looking lady bring me my stuff to the car. She blew my phone up texting me each time something wasn't in stock which was a lot. It was a creepy experience.

    I live in the Phoenix area.

    I'm wondering if going to a 24 hour Walgreens in the middle of the night is the way to do it to avoid crowds. Obviously they don't have everything.

    I did instacart & aldi yesterday, it wasn't bad, except that they were out of some of the stuff I wanted (chicken and paper towels)

    Re: Grocery Store Update:

    whats all this 'pancake mix' talk about?


    1 cup all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
    2 tablespoons sugar
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup milk
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, or vegetable oil
    1 large egg
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil

    If you are using powdered milk you can just add more water. You can also add in extracts. If you are really industrious you can pop open one of your cans of wheat that has been in your food storage forever and grind your own flour. Fresh ground wheat...even older wheat...makes for sweeter bread and cakes.

    Re: Grocery Store Update:

    i was able to get most of the stuff we need for a while yesterday. like others have said, there were no paper towels and no TP of any kind. also, much of the baking stuff was gone. i do find it interesting that the TP manufacturers aren't really cashing in here, but whatever. i was able to get the stuff i need for my kid, cans of food for my dog, and dinners for us. almost no one was wearing PPE. i'm not even sure that you can still get it around here. that's a shame. i wore a mask and gloves. i hope that it helped.

    Re: Grocery Store Update:

    No shortage of anything but TP in my AO.
    I have a bidet plus 60 rolls, don’t care.

    Wife always kept a good stockpile of TP, I don’t know why. Must be a girl thing.

    I have used leaves when hunting.

    Most not wearing masks. ( it’s a waste of time, cheap dust masks do not help.)
