Theme: Food

So Today's blog is fairly random. Which is how I roll. In case you haven't noticed.

Two unrelated stories. Well related in that they both involve food.

Story #1
I was working late and I called Jeremy on my way home. Hungry and tired I offered to pick up dinner. He said, "nope, don't worry about it, I've already started making something". I was so happy I could have cried. Lesson to all the gentleman out there (who likely are only Jeremy, Alex and my Dad reading this.)...make dinner when she's tired. Really, it's a simple thing that wins major points.

Now I said that it was a really nice thing that he made dinner. What I did not mention was that he apparently thought I was bringing an army home with me.

I arrive home to the following:


Now that my friends, is the world's largest bowl of pasta. For two people. Two small people. Two small people with a strange aversion to leftovers. A sign that we have been together for a long time and my food overestimation has worn off on him. Anyone hungry? We've got some pasta.

Story #2

We were out and about and trying to kill some time yesterday before meeting my family for dinner. We wandered into the local Jerry's foods because it is always good for a people watching laugh. This store has the strangest demographic. It is highly popular with the 10-17 crowd, as well as the 80+ crowd. So clearly I love it for the 80+ mingling.

Upon entering we noticed a display for 'graduation catering', and then the following:





I don't know how clearly you can see what is in the bowls above, but consider yourselves lucky if you cannot.

I can see it now...
"Thanks for inviting me to your graduation party, but why is there a line out the door for the bathroom?"
"I'm not sure...have you seen the Celebration Taco Bar in the kitchen?"

mmmm....tasty. Happy Graduation!
