The grocery store is a really dangerous place for me. See, I love to cook and wandering through the aisles of a supermarket always gives me ideas for various things I could whip up in the kitchen. It takes practically every bit of willpower I have to stop from just dragging my arms along the shelves, knocking item after item into my waiting cart.
Sometimes it’s as if I just black out completely. The next thing I know, I’ve blown a hundred dollars that could have more economically been spent on hot dogs, leaving room to purchase more games. On the plus side, I had some very decent mussels for dinner tonight.
Here’s a veritable buffet of tidbits for you to look over that just couldn’t make the cut. Enjoy.
