What did we ever do before Aldi came to town?
My first mistake, and believe me . . I’ve learned this lesson: This morning for breakfast, I served fresh cranberry juice. Vince was hurrying up to finish eating. He wanted to go to Aldi to get more cranberries. That’s easy for him to say. First, his knee isn’t hurting . . every step he takes and mine is about to kill me. Second, he’s not the one whose knitting is interrupted by cranberry juice! I am thankful that I don’t have to peel them and chop them . . it could be worse.
I wanted their Cheese Advent Calendar but Vince was not wanting to get it because I’m leaving on the 19th or 20th. Big deal . . starting about the 15th, have two samplings of cheese per night. I told him I’d go back to Aldi and get more cranberries if he would get the advent calendar and he agreed.
While in there, I mentioned . . if we bake some brie, I can make a topping with the cranberry pulp, a little honey, toasted walnuts and jalapenos! He was all for that so we got brie, the advent calendar and the cranberries . . and something for Nicole for Christmas and I see two bottles of BBQ sauce.
I am so ready to be done with cranberries and I’m not even halfway done yet.
