Gardening Blues

I miss my garden.
A lot!
I'm reading for spring.
I think its a little early to be feeling that way.
My garden was the best part of 2011.
And I'm ready for Round 2.

Why I need lists...

Seriously people. One time I brave the grocery store without a list and I BOMB it.

I haven't meal planned in cough cough a while so today on the way home from Sky View, I decided I could throw together Taco Soup easy enough. The only thing I would need at the store was tortilla chips. Well, you guessed it. Instead of paying $1.88 at the Lee's checkout stand, I payed $22.38. Grrrr...

Check out the picture. Its a nice assortment of CRAP food. NOTHING (besides the chips) to help me with a meal.

Here's the break down:
4 Pillsbury cake mixes (on sale at least!)
3 12-packs of pop (also on sale!)
2 bags Santitas tortialla chips
1 gallon of milk
1 jar Chad's raspberry salsa
...and a partridge in a pear tree...

Wait a minute.. Raspberry salsa??? What the huh? Okay, but honestly, they had a sample of this stuff and it is seriously to die for. I lost all ability to reason and HAD to buy the salsa. I'm calling the purchase research for next canning season.

I was also able to justify the pop purchase - next week Flint has finals so I'm calling it a Finals Week Survival Gift. Cuz I'm so nice like that :)
