On Monday morning before work I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things (I made the mistake of making cookies Sunday night and therefore we're all out of milk for cereal Monday morning). Well, those few things turned into a million things. So much for not buying anything "prepared."
I used the excuse that we have a house guest living with us and I was
concerned about her starving to death (she picked a bad month to visit).
But I must admit that I use this excuse a lot to buy things I wouldn't
normally buy -- even when I know that my guests don't eat anything (I'm
looking in your general direction, Rena's family).
By the way, I made the "Root Beer Float" cupcakes from that free
cookbook I got from the library. Let's just say that the cupcakes are
STILL sitting here on my counter. I think there's a reason why that
cookbook was free.
