I had to go to pick up my daughters' films for an appointment on Thursday, so my mom watched the kids and in exchange I went to pick up my list of 6 items we needed. So six items.
Cheese Curls (My mom's weakness)
See? Six items, seemingly random. Get in, get out, get home.
I should have eaten breakfast. I made a list, under no circumstances would I divert from my list. Go to the designated aisles, grab the goods and check out.
I had all of my items in the cart when I remembered we were low on lunchmeat, so I called Mom.
"Which deli meats do we need?" I asked.
"Well, we're out of everything, so all of it. And there's one slice of cheese left, better get that, too." She replied.
On my way towards the lunchmeat I started do go astray.
Cheese Waffies, A rarity of the chip aisle. I grab these up whenever they appear for fear they won't be re-stocked. In our house, my mom and I barter to each other with these. They are currency. My husband thinks they're obscene with how fake the cheese is. I don't care, I don't have to share with him.
Chocolate Chip cookies. I already had a cheesy snack, but what if I really wanted something chocolate-y? Better safe than sorry...
It was still only 11AM and both of my snacks were more "afternoon/evening delicacies". Apple Turnovers would be more appropriate... (Box is empty because these were consumed by everyone within 30 minutes of getting home).
Walking back towards the front of the store to the register I spotted this. I'd heard wonderful things from my friend Julia about this product, and my daughter being allergic to peanuts, I want to try it and see if it's a suitable substitution for our family.
Okay, this I can explain, really I can. My kids have been keeping each other up at night, meaning I'm up at night, and yet still getting up offensively early. I'm tired, I don't drink coffee, and right now this was looking like water in the Sahara. Really.
This was the cherry on top. Waiting in line, after several price checks courtesy the woman ahead of me, not caring to read gossip rags, I perused this. Hungry?
Don't look at a cooking magazine. Don't look at a "Less than 15 Minute" cooking magazine. Don't look at a "5 Ingredient" cooking magazine. You WILL buy it.
Look at that salmon.
I can cook it in 15 minutes.
With 5 ingredients.
