What’s one have to do with the other? Read on!
I went to town today to pick up a few essentials such as sugar, flour, milk, and meat.
The meat for the second half of this month is turkey. I got an approximately 12.5 pound turkey for 79 cents a pound. Ye can’t beat that with a stick. The whole thing cost me under $10.
This will make Thanksgiving dinner, and the copious leftovers will be bagged in ziploc bags and frozen, and the bones will make the best darn turkey soup you ever did taste.
Unfortunately I also had to buy cat litter. My cat, judging by his “I really don’t give a feck, Dad” kind of look, is obviously thrilled that he got ‘Premium’ litter instead of the regular litter, because the store was out of regular litter. Again. That’s an extra $2 a bag for the same exact stuff that’s in the other bag. One just says ‘Premium’ on it. Conveniently enough they seem to always be out of the regular stuff every single time I go to the store. Probably just another marketing ploy. I swear they leave the regular stuff unstocked so you’ll just buy the Premium bag. Wouldn’t put it past them. What’s the chances of them being out of regular litter every single time I’ve been in that damn store in the past 5 months?
I also got a dozen donuts today. This is something I don’t typically do. But I figured, hey, what the heck. It’s the little things in life that make all the difference, right? My monthly budget doesn’t usually include junk food. And now I remember why. *shudders* I ate two of those darn things and I feel like I need to scrape the funk on my tongue off with a straight razor. Bleh! I don’t know which of the GMO ingredients gives it the ‘grease from hell’ taste but the only thing I ever remember having that same taste was cold venison stew. Cold deer fat is the most disgusting tasting thing on the planet, in my estimation. This is a close second.
Maybe I’ll take and post a few pics of the turkey once it’s made, maybe not. I think everyone’s seen a turkey before. You seen one (turkey), you’ve seen them all! 😉
