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.
