Quick Stock Up

Our family has been exposed to the flu and we have one down.  I took her to the doctor this morning and after I got her home I ran out to pick up her medications and grab a few things from the store.

low fat cottage cheese (for fruit salad)
dry beans 6 lbs of Mayocoba Beans (used up last of GNBeans recently)

4 small cups of Greek Yogurt (to help with antibiotic issues)
sour cream

To hedge for a simple meal since I am now developing a sore throat -- a loaf of garlic bread for quick pizza.
