While at Aldi Monday, it was so nice to pick up things I saw that looked good that would never have been on my shopping list . . salmon, scallops, croissant buns. I wasn’t sure what I would make with the croissant buns but I’ve thought about it and one thing I’m going to make is a little bread pudding using those and some other bread I have here.
This morning I woke up wanting a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich for breakfast. I was still in bed. It wasn’t nearly daylight yet but I thought about those croissant rolls, hopped out of bed and fixed myself breakfast.
I’ve so much enjoyed making my grocery list over a couple of weeks and then picking up curbside. Going up and down the aisles, often back and forth a few times, long lines at Aldi, . . I just don’t enjoy that. I do enjoy seeing things I wouldn’t have seen or tried otherwise. Once Vince gets here, he’ll want to go to the store at least three times a week but he doesn’t always buy things I would buy. I’m thinking maybe I’ll do curbside pickup and then make an Aldi run every couple of months. I’ll see how long it is before I’m missing seeing new things after Monday’s trip. My guess is about six weeks . . . we’ll see.
