Thanks for visiting. I am no longer updating Notes to Self. I hope you'll join me on my current website,

It's Come to This


In recent weeks, we have pretty much exhausted our go-to list of budget-friendly, kid-friendly take-out meals. There hasn't been time to do any real grocery shopping, but I just couldn't face another meal of pizza tonight, so I ran into the supermarket to see if I could simulate home-cooked and still qualify for the express checkout lane.

I got pre-formed, pre-cooked meatballs, a jar of spaghetti sauce, and a plastic pan of "oven-ready" brownies. I was heading toward the checkout when I passed the display of cheese-flavored spread in a can (a.k.a. caulk for your innards).

What the hell, I thought, tossing it and a box of crackers in the basket.

The only part of the meal that didn't quite fit was the cork in my bottle of wine. A screwtop would have made a much more appropriate pairing.

That cheese-spread (we actually found some where real cheese is the main ingredient) is one of the few junky foods from my youth that still tastes good to me.

But I think you should have gone for a box of wine instead of a cork or a screwtop.

Bill makes a good point.

I actually prefer screw-top wine.

1. No corked wine, ever.
2. Quick to open, which is crucial!
3. Dismays the wine snobs
