Kind of a weird return-post after a year and a half of inactivity, but anyway.
Today I felt like making something interesting for dinner, so I snoop around Pinterest (don't judge me), find a recipe for this delicious-looking salad, gather a list of ingredients I'm missing, and head down to my local Wal-Mart.
I end up only needing a thing of chicken (I bought a massive 5lb bag because I was running low, and I already eat chicken like one of those people on Food Addictions anyway), a large head of cabbage, and a couple packages of Ramen noodles. This little old lady was kind enough to let me step in front of her to check out, so I happily paid and exited, making the 15-minute trek back to my house.
I get home, unload the groceries, and I left THE OTHER BAG in that little spinning contraption by the checkout counter. Know what I forgot? The cabbage and noodles, totaling a whopping 90 or so cents of the 14-dollar total. Since both ingredients were essential to the recipe (and there was nothing left in the pantry to serve as a substitute of any kind), I went BACK to the Wal-Mart, burning more money in fuel than the sum of items I had left.
I was so mad.
And the salad tastes good, in case you were wondering.
