Several days ago, Jared took it upon himself to do our family's "major grocery shopping." You know the type, we needed everything from flour to milk to peanut butter M&Ms--the "basics" if you will. If you're a regular reader, you're well aware that we recently moved into a new house. Until last week, we had been doing a whole lot of painting and not a whole lot of living, so it's needless to say that we didn't have a single crumb to speak of. Jared, bless his tender soul, was anxious to stock the shelves.
Jared's grocery shopping extravaganza lasted a total of three days and required three separate trips to three different grocery stores. What can I say? The man has lofty standards and he searched high and low to painstakingly locate every single item on his mother-lovin' list. I don't care how many sausage-like products were purchased on my credit card account, that level of determination is commendable--always.
Speaking of sausage-like products, I'd like to provide you with a brief list of items that are currently housed in my cupboards:
1 Package of Pre-Cooked Bratwurst--Always a lady's favorite.
1lb of Sliced Salami
2 Tubes of Maple Flavored Breakfast Sausage
8 Ball Park Hot Dogs
1 Extra-Long Kielbasa--Are you beginning to sense the theme here?
2 Cans of Black-Eyed Peas--Well slap me on the ass and call me Bo Jangles, I done didn't realize we wur from the South!
20 cans of Coke
1 Tub of Coconut Oil--?
1 Big Bag of Apples--Okay, now we're getting somewhere.
4lb Bag of Peas
1 Jar of Organic Garlic--Every little bit counts, I suppose.
and last but certainly not least,
2 brown bananas
Why wouldn't I be in love with this man? I can barely wait to start cooking!
