Humble Pie leftovers for lunch

Yeah, you remember how I was mouthing about my Husband's inability to bring home exactly what I've put on a shopping list? I should have kept my mouth shut.

We called MIL yesterday to see if she could sit with the older three kids so Husband and I could make a grocery run. She agreed & off we went.

I bought all the groceries & assundry items we needed & we headed home. The trip was uneventful.

As I was making dinner last night (chili & grilled cheese per B.B.'s request) I discovered I had purchased a giant can of whole tomatoes instead of the tomato sauce I meant to buy. Crap. But being the ultra-flexible and completely brilliant woman that I am, I tossed them into the blender, hit "liquify" and voila! Tomato sauce. The Chili was saved.

Now #1 Son won't touch chili or grilled cheese with a 10 foot pole, so I agreed to make him mac & cheese (please don't lecture me about enabling my picky eater. The child will not eat for days at a time if he's not closely watched. I'd rather fix an extra dish at dinner than have him go all Gandhi on me). That's when I discovered I didn't buy any mac & cheese. Oy. I thought I had two more boxes in the pantry, but no. Not a one. I did pick up Shells & Cheese, so I was temporarily saved.

As the drama was unfolding in the kitchen, Husband pipes in from the living room, "If this is what you were going to do, I could have done the shopping on my own." To which I graciously responded, "Yeah, and we'd have 1 can of tomato sauce, spaghetti sauce I cannot stand, and 15 boxes of granola bars."

I really should have kept my mouth shut.

Poor Farmie!

We're sitting around, stocked to the gills on groceries, and gas, candles, batteries, and all the clothing is washed, dried, folded, and put away...the storm that whomped y'all was supposed to his US this weekend!

Now it is gray, cold, yucky, and the wind is GUSTING! Now, I hate wind...

Just remember...better to be stuck at home with your whiny family than to be stuck somewhere alone!
