Sounds yummy.

The goofiest thing I keep wanting to try in our Asian markets is the freeze dried tiny crabs. Just can't pull the trigger. I suppose they would be like tiny crab flavored crackers.

I have dried tiny shrimp. Aren't they just used as a seasoning?

I don't muck up my ingredients, however my wife and son are shockers. Wife went to get eggs for a bacon and egg pie, I normally get these as I buy free range from a guy I know. But this was for a picnic. So we had none so I did her a wee list of about 6 things. While out we swung by out local store and she went in to get stuff.
We get home later and I go to make the pie, no eggs, ask wife where they were, oh, I forgot them. She went out and got them. Our son was the same as a kid. I would send him to the shops to get milk and a tin of beans, he'd come home with coke and a lettuce. In the end I couldn't send him for anything. We still laugh about it now.

That's kids for ya. But then I've been known to forget things at the store, even if they were on my list

I've been out to a store three times now specifically to get a birthday card. Got home today and I forgot it again. *facepalm*

I do that too. I even forget stuff I have written down.

At work on the corkboard by my desk, I have a little cartoon cutout of a woman who is saying "I've expanded my skills. I can now forget what I'm doing while I'm actually doing it."
