So my kids have this little game going on at the grocery store. It’s called let’s see how many people we can run over with the shopping cart.
Not really, but at times I feel like they are conspiring together to knock people off. They probably just enjoy the feeling of being in control, and let’s face it, nothing says control like navigating a buggy through the pickle aisle.
I’m curious…What do you call the grocery cart?
Is it a cart, buggy, or carriage?
Probably depends on where you live. Did you know that in some areas of New York, they make you drop a quarter in the machine to free your shopping cart. For a Supermarket, the only thing worse than stolen carts is stolen produce.
Come on…I know you’re guilty. You taste the grapes. I’ve seen you.
I don’t really know any of these things for sure, because I’ve never worked in a grocery store. In fact, I try to spend as little time as possible buying food. I’m always shocked by how much money I can spend in such a short time and the only thing I have to show for it is my big bottom.
A shame I tell you. A SHAME.
Anyway, last night I grabbed a few containers of BBQ sauce off the shelf and turned to drop them into a shopping cart headed right for my backside. I was sure my son was on the driver’s side until the cart took a sharp turn around my behind and I locked eyes with the driver. He was not my son and looked at me like I was crazy for trying to drop BBQ sauce in his cart. Personally, I think he needs to lighten up. The summer season has begun and little BBQ sauce just may do him some good.
So in light of my children not killing anyone with their cart this week, I thought I would host a little blog carnival. You know the kind…you write an amusing little post and link it to the domestic fringe. Then you come over here and drop off your specific URL in the linky thing I’ll put up.
Here’s the catch:
Your post must include a summertime recipe. No pot roast simmering in the oven for four hours or anything like that. I’m looking for light, bright, oven free things to eat this summer.
So will you join me this coming Tuesday, June 8th, and link your favorite summer-time recipe?
