My husband and I were out shopping this afternoon and the shopping trip that I thought would only take about two hours ended up taking almost five hours! Time sure flies when when you’re shopping in crowded stores at this time of year doesn’t it?
We went to Costco first as my husband had to get a prescription filled, and then I wanted to see how many of the items from my baking list I could get at Costco. Yes, I knew I’d come away with large packages, but I plan on doing a lot of cooking. I ended up getting Vanilla, flour, sugar, two big bags of semi sweet chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and a few other things.
We ended our shopping trip at Walmart. I got the rest of my baking supplies there and I found a new cookie sheet. It’s one of those air insulated baking sheets. I bought it so I could give it a try. I think we got everything we needed, so tomorrow I’ll get started baking three different types of cookies, a pumpkin cheesecake and maybe some homemade bread. The only thing I didn’t do today was get around to looking at a Wholesale Insurance website that my friend wants me to check out for her. I’ll do that later.
While we were shopping at Walmart we happened to see my husbands old boss. He’s not someone that either of us liked. He’s a really bad guy … like the kind of boss that does everything he can to not pay his employees? So we tried to avoid this guy while we were in the store and of course whenever you’re trying to avoid someone you keep running into them. I think we ran into him about five times – in fact, Chris’ old boss even came up to my husband while he was in line waiting to pay for our things to ask him a question. Luckily he didn’t seem to recognize him.
Ok … I’d better go and prepare the kitchen for tomorrows bake off.
