I haven’t been to the grocery store in two weeks.
We have no bread or milk.
I have no idea what we just ate for supper.
And the sheer luxury of having a bowl of cereal every night has just been replaced with absolutely nothing because…you guess it! The milk is gone.
My diet coke stash has been depleted for several days...maybe that’s the reason for the “argh!” in my voice. It’s called caffeine withdrawals and it isn’t pretty.
The last time I remember turning my oven on was when I made pre-printed Halloween cookies for Alise’s class when she was Star of the Week! That was two (or three?) weeks ago.
I barely have a jar of peanut butter (remember the week I was on the peanut butter and vanilla wafer kick?), but no jelly. But, I already told you that I have no bread, so what good would that do?
I have a few colored gold fish in a Tupperware container, but we’re rationing those for salt intake – which reminds me that the bottled water is no more, too!
Meat? What’s that? Do five little fish sticks that are in a kid’s TV dinner that is suffering rather badly from freezer burn count as meat?
No juice, no spaghetti-o’s, no crackers, no fruit, no Dora soup and no candy (guess who?).
No Ding-Dongs, no popcorn, no chips, no rotel and cheese or Mountain Dew (guess who?).
No fat-free, no less fat, no trans-fat, no preservatives, no percentages…Heck! No calories at all (guess who?)!!!
But I did take Alise to gymnastics tonight.
(Don’t forget to leave me a comment to let me know you posted your favorite recipe using hamburger! See TAG yesterday).
