It is absolutely necessary for me to go to the store. We are out of pretty much everything. I didn’t realize how sparse the kitchen was until this morning. There was enough coffee to make one pot. Then there was only enough creamer for one cup. After that I had to resort to the back up creamer… powder. Yuck. I had a banana for breakfast, but when I went for a snack just now I found pretty much nothing. I settled on the last bit of Raisin Bran, but the fridge only offered expired milk. Add a few shriveled up grapes and leftovers on the verge of questionable and I was left with only condiments to choose from. I used the last of the peanut butter last night when I had an apple. The almonds are gone and that is a typical snack for me.
I’m withering away to nothing here!
Okay, I’m exaggerating. There is a can vegetable soup in the cabinet and if I was willing to cook then I would have more options. My point was that we are all out of the staples. What are your kitchen staples? The things you can’t go very long without? Mine are: skim milk, fat free coffee creamer, gourmet roast Maxwell House coffee, natural peanut butter, raw almonds, whole grain cereal and fruit. The only thing I currently have is fruit. Looks like I will get in my recommended servings of fruit today. I think I’ll have the vegetable soup for lunch and fruit for a snack later. Dinner will have to be prepared from actual ingredients tonight and then I will definitely go to the grocery store. Facing tomorrow morning with no coffee is just not an attractive option. You don’t want that to happen, believe me.
