so last week was horrible in the ways of all things homemaking. i think i made more mess and distress than home. but i’m back on the wagon this week so here we go.
- monday: ham, baked potatoes, green beans
- tuesday: beef stew, sourdough
- wednesday: soy chicken, rice, salad
- thursday: meatloaf, fries, peas & carrots
- friday: pizza & beans
- saturday: navy bean & ham soup, sourdough
- sunday: waffles, sausage
now here’s my gripe of the day: how big of idiots do people think we are?
a couple of weeks ago, i went to buy a pack of tortillas. i generally buy the soft taco size, since that’s usually what i’m using them for. i was dismayed to see that they now sell them in 3 sizes; small, medium and large. WHAT? no burrito size? makes them sound really authentic, huh?
today, i was at fred meyer and i needed a package of navy beans. so i go to the bean aisle. there were no navy beans. there was something that i can assume is navy beans, but they’re called, “small white beans”. seriously. below them were “small red beans” and “large red beans”.
what is that about? have you ever seen a recipe that called for some sort of non-specified, generic bean? so weird!
