When You Let the Husband Do The Shopping!

Thursday, May 16, 2013

DH had to drive to Glendale by himself this time. He had appts on Monday and Wed. and it's a real hassle to transport the cats -- they do not like car rides. So I stayed home! On Wednesday I told him the few things I thought we would need.

Now you have to know that some men are good shoppers, some aren't. Mine happens to be an excellent shopper. He just doesn't know when to quit sometimes. He called about 7:45 on Wed. night to say he had just left the house. So shortly after 9:00 he arrived at home (summer home in Yarnell). I was pleased as he started bringing in bags of things he had shopped for. My pleasure rapidly turned to shock when I saw he had enough perishable food to fill two refrigerators the size of ours.

What were you thinking????? I ask him. He gives me a blank look -- as I rush about trying to fit everything in. Big containers emptied into smaller ones, a few things thrown out. Finally after putting a few of the veggies like artichokes in a cooler with the frozen ice packs, I was finished!

One thing is for sure! We can eat like a King and Queen and not have to worry about going down to the "big city" for supplies anytime soon. And next time I'll be going with him -- to curb his appetite for "stocking up." Come to think of it, after the ton of groceries he carted in, the only fresh fruit I got was some bananas and a box of strawberries. (It's what I like) But we have plenty of steak and chops (it's what HE likes). I wonder who won this round?
