Forgetful Shopper

So I wandered up to the store to pick up some things that I needed for baking a fantabulous treat for the BBQ tomorrow. I figured I’d get in all the grocery shopping I needed to at this particular store, so I wrote up my list, got my reusable bags, and headed out the door. Too bad I left the damn list on the counter! UGH. I hate shopping without my list, especially when there are things I need! I thought I did a good job…until I got home, and realized I’d forgot one key ingredient for my baking. So I was back out the door, and up to the grocery store again.

So other than my forgetfulness, my Friday night has been pretty low key. I baked, did laundry, watched some tv, and read a little. I had no clue what I felt like for dinner – I’m having one of those off food days. It doesn’t help that I have minimal produce in the house (produce shopping is on the schedule tomorrow). I ate the last little bit of rice with some soy sauce as a snack when I got home from work. I know, random, but I knew I would just end up throwing the rice out, and it sounded tasty.

I made dinner way later on, after I finished baking. I went with breakfast for dinner – in the form of oatmeal.

Caramel Apple Oatmeal

  • 1/2 cup oats, milk, water
  • 1/2 granny smith apple, chopped
  • splash of vanilla
  • lots of cinnamon
  • flax seed

It’s like, breakfast, dinner, and dessert all in one!

I also sliced up some honeydew melon to go alongside. Love me that honeydew.

I was freakin’ stuffed after this. I don’t know what’s up with my appetite today. Meh, I’m sure it’s a one off thing.

Well, I’m off to watch a movie, then hit the sack. Lots to do tomorrow before I head out to my friend’s place for the BBQ. Night!

    Oatmeal for dinner? Heck yeah! I’ve definitely done that before.

    Oh I hate it when I get to the store and realize I don’t have my list. It’s especially dangerous when I’m hungry, which causes me to pick up random foods that look good (which is EVERYTHING when I’m hungry!). Glad you got your ingredients, even if it meant two store trips!

    I always do that with my grocery lists! It really is a shopping handicap, even though I usually do okay without one.

    Mmm that oatmeal for dinner sounds delicious!

    My shopping list is like a bible to me! I’m so lost if I forget it!

    I love your dinner. That caramel all over the place looks fantastic.
