shopping list

Michelle was working from home yesterday so i asked if she could run to the store and get some thanksgiving groceries. You know, just a turkey breast and some potatoes.. maybe some of those crispy onion things and green beans. I usually do all the grocery shopping so i was a bit nervous to trust her with our thanksgiving meal. She called from the store and said they had a whole counter of red meat. "Do we want steaks?" she asked. "No, we don't want thanksgiving steaks. We want to have turkey like the whole rest of the country." I answered. "Oh..... are some pork chops! Do we want pork chops?" she asked excitedly. "No, we don't want Thanksgiving pork chops." I sighed. "How about pork loin. You like to cook pork loin. Here's a whole bunch of them!" she exclaimed. "No, no no... can you just ask the meat guy if he has any turkey breasts? I mean, i think that's what he's there for." I said. Just then she yelled into the phone, "OH! HAM! Look at all the hams!

Fine. ham. We're having thanksgiving ham.

You cook pork loin now?
Anyhoo, next time go to Trader Joe's. They sell a turkey breast, and I think it's stuffed. We had it a few years ago and it was pretty good.

Happy Thanksgiving, turkey or no turkey! As long as you have pie, I'm sure you'll be fine. Mmm, pie.
