What’s that nursery rhyme about the cupboards being bare? Well, that’s what comes to mind when I think about our kitchen.
Not the shelves and fridge are EVER full. When we shop, the overriding rule is that we can’t buy more than we can carry. Fortunately our local grocery store is only three blocks away. (That sounds really close unless YOU’RE the one walking in the rain or against a freezing wind.) And the bags seem to get heavier as we walk.
Typically Jim makes several quick runs to the store in any given week and returns with necessities for the next several meals — and cream for the morning coffee. Sometimes he even needs a second bag.
But it’s been a long time since we’ve done a four-bagger trip. The bags aren’t full to the brim because of the weight inside each one. Milk. Cream. Fruit. Those were the weightiest items today. Oh, and potatoes, carrots and celery for the soup tomorrow night. The laundry detergent was carried separately.
We should be good for a couple of days.
