Master of Grocery Shopping



Last night I went grocery shopping. I was going to make tacos for dinner, stock up on pizzas, get some more cereal, and get some soda for the party at work tomorrow.

Cereal? Check.
Pizzas? 4. Check.
Soda? Dew and Coke. Check.
Tacos? Fail!

I bought everything I needed to make tacos EXCEPT meat.

So.. instead of tacos. I ate pizza. Rather, my roommate and I ate pizza. Ok, pizzas. There's one pizza left. You do the math.

    Been there. I really do have to make lists anymore. I can't remember more than 6 or 7 things long enough to get through the store. Too, when I go without a list, I buy the entire store.

    Lists don't even help me anymore.

    Example:
    Last Saturday I decided to make chili. I made the list without checking what I already had – now I have 2 containers of chili powder. I added bread to the top of the list (for sandwiches for lunch, not to put in the chili).. and made it home without bread.

    I find chili powder can vary widely in intensity and usually have a lot of it on hand just because you never know how strong it is going to be and subsequently how much you'll need to use. I've uses as much as 1/2 cup in chili before! Do you have a favorite brand?

    Cheap. 😛

    I don't remember the brand. I haven't made chili in forever. I haven't done much cooking at all in the last few years.

    I did have to add quite a bit more than I ever remember using.
