Realizing I'm Back Home
So I decided to make a nice meal for tonight. Meatloaf, garlic mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, and wilted spinach salad. We're having a few people over, not just eating this all by ourselves.
For those that know me, know that I'm not a huge meatloaf fan. However, that nice man I live with has been requesting it for some time. So I decided to aquiesce. Since I'm not a meatloaf kind of girl, I decided a good choice would be to put a bacon quilt/weave on top/around the meatloaf. Everything's better with bacon, afterall. However, I had already bought all the ingredients (other than the bacon) earlier today at the grocery store. So I had to make a second trip just for the bacon. The first trip, I had all sorts of healthy food items in my cart and didn't run into a single person I knew in the very crowded Publix. The second trip, now known as The Bacon Trip, I ran into three people I knew, as soon as the bacon was in my possession.
Only in my world would I run into a ton of people looking like the fat kid I am. Now that I have three packets of bacon safely in my possession, time to make a bacon weave!
