As I sit here on this chilly morning watching leaves float ever so gently and cover my yard and deck, I’m happy not to have to run to the grocery store.
Coffee scents the air and a pot of delicious leftover Gumbo awaits in the refrigerator. Yay! No cooking tonight. A blessing indeed.
No matter how many times I say I’m going to minimize my kitchen pantry items, somehow my best intentions go awry. There’s always something to cook, so I want ingredients for several dishes at hand. Always. Or the freezer holds several meals ready to thaw and reheat.
When I ask hubby what he’d like for dinner, the answer is most always the same. “Whatever you make.”
Well…that’s a great help. Right?
Then, sometimes, after I’ve thawed out something, he’ll call and ask, “Why don’t we have so-and-so?”
Me: “I’ve already laid out -whatever.”
Hubby: “Oh. Okay then.”
End of story. Lol
Did I say I detest going to the grocery store? Well…I certainly do. I’d rather spend my time doing more interesting things and I’m sure many of you feel the same.
There’s a great phone app called “Out of Milk.” It’s my go-to grocery list-at my finger tips at any given moment. So I don’t lack an ingredient, I add items to the app’s list right before running out. I know, I know. That’s paranoia! Heaven forbid I lack an item for a particular dish. My hubby shakes his head when he helps bring in bags and bags of groceries. Ha.
I must share my October roses. There aren’t many, one rose and a bud, but still beautiful. With this weird weather, the plants have no idea what season it is.
Until next time…I wish you Music, Butterflies and most of all…Love.
