So I went to the grocery store today. I hate shopping for just about anything. We are hoping to be able to buy a new house within a few years and I've already let Matt know that I will not be doing any house hunting. I'm leaving that up to him- I'm sure he'll be able to pick out something nice.
Anyways, back to shopping- I hate grocery shopping more then any other kind of shopping. First off, I always somehow get the most defective/noisiest cart in the store. Second, I always get the slooowest cashier. Honestly, I would really just like to to jump behind the counter and check myself out. Yes, I realize that there are self checkout lanes, but those take even longer because either the bar code won't read, or it asks me 50 times to put my milk in my bag even though I already have.
Because I find shopping to be a tremendous pain I buy as much as I can so I don't have to go as often. I plan out all our meals for two weeks, thus making it possible to only go to the grocery store twice a month. All of our meals are made from scratch whenever possible. That is why I love cooking blogs. Especially this one! Eat at Home is fantastic because she uses regular ingredients so I don't have to go traipsing all over town looking for some obscure spice. Not that I would do that anyways- in fact, I'm very impatient when it comes to shopping so if I can't find it within five minutes it gets left out.
Actually I'm very impatient in general, but we'll talk about that on another day:P
Do any of you have a food/cooking blog that you really like? If you do I would love it if you would leave a link!
Have a great weekend everyone!
