Super Bowl Sunday! Woo hoo!
I still can't believe I set my alarm clock to wake me up early on a Sunday morning to go grocery shopping! I was afraid if I didn't get there early enough I'd be trapped by the hoardes of people shopping at the last minute (as I usually am). Chris and I set off with our grocery bags to see if they'll do as well as we thought they would. I actually had every intention of hitting the self-checkout lane but I had more stuff in my cart than I wanted to scan myself so I jumped into the nearest lane. I whipped out my bags on the unsuspecting checker-guy and he just looked at me funny for a second (I'm sure it was the bags and not ME!) and a checker-gal came by to help him bag. She asked me if I made the bags myself, to which I replied that I had, and that was that. I was surprised at how much stuff they held and how comfortable they were to carry. I did, however, feel a pang of guilt when I bought a rump roast and had to place it in a plastic bag, 'cause it was bleeding all over the place and I didn't want to nasty up my new bags! Is there another way to get around this? I am pleased to mention that they had a couple of bins of resuable bags for sale by the check-out lanes. Are they new or had I just not noticed them before?
I've got the rump roast in the crock pot for dinner and I'm going to be making hot wings and nachos to nosh on during the big game. Can't wait. In fact, pregame just started. Got to go now! Go Giants!
