I figured you guys would get a kick out of this. 90% of the food shopping I do, Especially if its something I need to cook with (not prepared). Veggies, I almost always pick them out whether it be from the store, or in season , from the garden. Anyway, my wife was stopping off at the market on her way home from work, and asked if there was anything I needed. I'm trying a new dish I just saw online, and realized I need some tomatoes for it ( which I didnt pick up myself, cause I didnt realized I would be needing them this week). Anyway, I tell her I need the tomatoes, preferably the Roma type, but if she cant find those or they dont look good, she can get me the rounder ones. I get a text later on with a picture of Roma tomatoes saying "Which one?". Me, being very picky in the veggies I select, didnt think anything of it, so I edited the picture and circled the exact tomatoes I wanted. With a note to check the other sides for bruises or blemishes, and I sent it to her. After I sent my edited, marked up pic, I realized she had sent 2 pictures, one of the Romas and the other of a different variety. She just waned to know which variety, not the exact tomatoes . She must think I'really a PIA!!!! But I guess I am when it comes to picking out produce. I actually thought it was kinda cool hate she asked. Sometimes I laugh when Im at the store doing it, wondering what the people behind me are thinking when I'm examining the veggies before buying them. What aI find bizarre is people who just grab aimlessly and toss them in a bag. Must the husbands who were told pick something up.
