Good Grief...isn't there a more appetizing thing to talk about than what bottom dwellers might eat?

The shrimp and avocado salad I made with the frozen precooked shrimp for last night's dinner was delicious. Of course, I had to buy the avocados three days ago and bag them with an apple but they were perfectly ripe for dinner.

There's a little shrimp salad leftover for a light lunch later on.

Excuse me? If I didn't do the grocery shopping, I wouldn't have any food to cook for dinner. SO would be angry when she got home.

Only some guys need to stay out of the store...others are intelligent and can be allowed out in public.

DH works closest to the grocery store, and he can pass by it on the way home. So he gets to shop, and I get to write the list!

Himself is not allowed to shop (comes home with so many things that are wrong, so very wrong...) and definitely not allowed to write my list. When we were sweet young newlyweds he offered to write out the list while I was busy with something else. The "rump roast" entry was a drawing of someone's butt, and the "mushrooms" morphed into "pootberries". It was not the sort of list you wanted to lose in the shopping cart.

I don't know if you are aware of this, but many men purposely do things wrong so we won't make them do them again. I learned this early on, and learned how to do it myself. For one thing, when I had my heart surgery I was sent home with instructions not to do any vacuuming. Five years later, he's still the one who runs the sweeper. I don't think the doctor means "for the rest of my life", but DH doesn't know that! Shhhhhh!!
