Gambling

Every trip to stop and shop is like pulling the lever on a shot machine – will they have the good guacamole mix this time??
I am setting myself up for disappointment.

Update: three different supermarkets, including one where Spanish is the primarily spoken language…No luck. I knew I was setting myself up for disappointment.

Update: personal accomplishment: going to Target, not finding what I was looking for, and leaving without buying something else.

    Yes, Sally is right. You’re mix is totally banging! Can’t wait until you make it for me again. :-)

    but I do know how you feel. I’ve often gone into a store looking for a specific product only to not find it and become frustrated. When it’s something non-perishable, I tend to stock up on it for that very reason. But when it comes to refrigerated items, you can’t really do that, so it can be frustrating to go from store to store and not find it when “that’s what for dinner tonight”.

    While it’s not always possible, it’s probably why a lot of people make their dinner menu’s a few days or even a week in advance – not only to not have to wonder “what are we having tomorrow?”, but also to make sure all the necessary ingredients are available. But that is a process that can only be pulled off by people who are extremely organized, regimented, on a set schedule, and not so ‘busy’ all the time. Not very realistic for the general public in today’s world.
