It has been a while since I shopped for anything other than books and magazines. So, today, in a weak moment, I decided to indulge myself.
In a quest to try to provide treats for my diabetic husband, I am always looking for something that will not do him too much harm. I always try to buy “sugar free” which usually falls flat — his take on it is “buy regular and I will just eat less” which usually falls flat as well. So, after tasting some really pretty wretched all natural, hand-made, hand-packed pricy ice cream and finding it to be entirely too sweet for his eating plan I decided to make my own. So, this morning I headed to my local Williams Sonoma and bought this —
I haven’t gotten it out of the box yet — I hope there are some recipes in it — and I have to find room in the freezer to freeze the thing but I feel like I will have much more control over the amount of whatever I decide to put in it.
Then, I just couldn’t stop there — I had to have this from Target —I had been looking for a chicken fryer for sometime and, even though there is a brand new Ace Mart right down the road from me, I decided on this on. I don’t fry food very often but when I do I am always saying I need a deeper pan because I really don’t like getting popped with grease. Plus, it is big and I can cook all the shrimp for my hubby and me and one time instead of smaller batches. And—-it has a lid — I always need lids. So, now I have to find a place for it as well. Sounds like a reorganization of the kitchen is in my future.
Anyway, that was my morning. All that and groceries bought before 11:30! What can I say — I don’t shop unless I know what I am going for, go straight there and get it — no messing around. Well, except for the books but that is a whole different blog!
