Don't you just hate going grocery shopping when your hungry and when your hubby wants to tag along and he is also hungry. Well, needless to say we did not stick to my grocery list. We bought things we have never bought before. Of course, I intend to use them in my cooking (darn it, I have to since I bought them). Now to one of the items I purchased which we really did not need, however, I have always wanted to try it out. Did you know that the spice "cardamon" could be soooo expensive. It sells for $10.59 at the store. I have always wanted to try this spice in a cookie recipe that I have and every time I would go grocery shopping I would just pass it by. I really could not see myself paying $10.59 for this little bottle of spice. BUT today, and because DH was with me and because he has always heard my story every time I return from grocery shopping of how expensive this is and I never buy it. Well, passing by this spice again today, I looked at the bottle, I picked up the bottle, turned to DH and said, " This is it, this is the expensive spice I have been telling you about, and I returned the bottle back to its little space on the shelf above the price tag of $10.59. I turned to my DH and stated, "This spice is just so darn expensive". DH just looked at me, rolled his eyes and said go ahead and buy it, you have wanted this spice for a long time, just put it in the basket and buy it. Sooooo, guess what? No hesitation after that comment. I grabbed the bottle and just tossed it into the basket with all of the other new items which we have never tried before, but that we will soon be using in our new cooking recipes. I will need to give you the scoop on these new recipes when I cook them next week. Oh, by the way, I have also been banned from watching the Food Network shows. Hee! Hee!
