Maybe, just maybe….

 

It’s been said I buy too much food when I go grocery shopping.

And I agree, that might be true.

So every once in a while I have to purge my kitchen cabinets and pantry of non used and so old they’re rusting  slightly out date products.

It really is amazing how much stuff I can stuff in there.

Did I need 13 bags of nuts and dried fruit to add to my salads?

Apparently yes.

Yes, I did.

I also needed 5 bottles of vinegar (which I despise) and numerous Asian condiments that never managed to make it into a stir fry.

All of the above had to be thrown out.

Were they past their prime?

Perhaps a wee bit.

And as much as it killed me, I threw out a chocolate bar.

Because yes, they really can go bad…. even though I didn’t think that was possible.

And speaking of chocolate, did you know there’s now a Game of Thrones Oreo?

Oh, yes…. there is.

And if you like the Game of Thrones intro?

You’re going to love it in Oreos.

 

 

Have you ever done this?

I know better, and yet…..

Stomach rumbling, I sashay up and down the aisles tossingĀ  HoHo’s and Ring Dings in my shopping cart at will.

(If they called them Cellulite Starters and Butt Wideners I wouldn’t, so you see…. it’s really not my fault.)

I buy salad tossers I’ll never toss, fizzy fruited drinks I’ll never drink and worst of all…. more deli meat and cheese than a school cafeteria will use in a month.

Oh, the pressure of the deli counter!

You take a number, wait in line, peruse the 307 varieties of flavored sliced turkey breast and when it’s finally your turn? You can’t just order a 1/4 lb of roast beef and call it good…. can you?

(Well I can’t. Which is why you should all come to my house for lunch tomorrow. BYOB. Bring your own bread…. because I never seem to buy the correct corresponding amount.)

And the paper products!

Why can’t I ever remember if I need them? I always buy too many which results in episodes like this:

Note to self –

Never leave the closet door ajar when you’ve purchased too much Charmin.

To say he enjoyed it would be an understatement.

The beast was positively orgasmic.

And none too eager to relinquish his prize as I cleaned up around him.

Moral of the story?

Buying too much at the grocery store can not only be wasteful and expensive….

But bloody as well.
