As often as I’ve listened to this song over the 20+ years since I discovered the Replacements in 8th grade (gods I feel old), one might be surprised to learn that it’s not my favorite song by the Replacements (that would be “Little Mascara”). However, I’ve always felt a connection to the longing & wistfulness of this song and it’s pretty reflective of how I’ve felt all week. Plus, Paul Westerberg is awesome.
Payday was today, and I went on a spending spree of paying bills and buying groceries. And while I’m now broke, we have food again. No more peanut butter sandwiches for lunch!
Chicken. Gads, I couldn’t get over chicken prices. Even the store brand stuff was basically twice what I paid for it last weekend!
Pantry stuff. I am almost out of coffee–I have enough to get me through tomorrow. I had no idea they carried Ak-Mak crackers here in Brookings!
And I found them by complete accident–After I picked up the graham crackers (because I want to make these), I just happened to look down and there they were! And they were less than $2, so I grabbed a box. Those & some sunflower butter make a tasty snack.
The egg roll wrappers (along with the chicken, and the buffalo sauce) are so that I can recreate an Iowa Girl Eats recipe. Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls. I saw these on her blog a couple days ago, and called Jay over to look at them. He agreed that I should make them soon. So that’s what we’ll be having tomorrow night for dinner. I can’t wait!
