My husband and I went to three grocery stores the other day. We weren't shopping; we were trying to solve a mystery. The mystery of "The Missing Food."
I'd saved our grocery receipts for the past 30 days and when I added them up and hit the total button, I was in shock. There was no way the two of us could have eaten that much stuff in one month. So where was all this food going? Someone must be stealing our groceries. Come to think of it our neighbor, Anne, mentioned that her husband Bill went on a diet a couple of weeks ago and she was so proud of him because he hadn't cheated once. Maybe he's the culprit. I bet he's been sneaking over here in the middle of the night and raiding our pantry.
O.K., I admit it--the chances of a food burglar are slim. Either my husband and I are totally clueless about how much food we really consume (maybe we need to start weighing in every morning), or we're paying too much for our groceries. So, with receipts in hand, checking item by item, we spent a couple of hours in grocery stores comparing prices.
Research completed, I'm happy to report that our calorie-counting neighbor is no longer a suspect. Our problem seems to be that we haven't been savvy shoppers. But you know, I did see Bill eating a protein bar when he got out of his car the other day--and it was my brand.
Thanks for reading with me. It's so good to read with friends.
