Default What do you call it?

As if I wasn't weird enough, someone laughed at what I called "going with a list to a store to buy food"

So, what do you call it?

Hmm...I think it says something about how food-centered my life is that all I need to do is announce that "I am going to THE store" and all is understood.

I think my mom does the same thing!

I usually say that I'm going grocery shopping, but sometimes I say I need to go buy food.

so funny...interesting to see where people are from and what they say. I say food shopping -- it's what my NY family always said.
