i must have sucker written all over my face.

they come at me from all directions, like tele-markers. try this. please, take one. here take more. just let me tell you what’s in it. they chase me, they make me eat stuff. usually it’s good. usually it’s really good. but sometimes i get annoyed, food shopping is like my thing. i usually do it alone, it’s like, my alone time.

and then they get my kids. my kids eat mostly everything. taking them food shopping is an adventure. i walked out of whole foods the other day with dover sole and some kind of crazy cranberry goat cheese that i know one is going to eat (no one ate it).

i told you, sucker.

it’s like plastered to my head. it’s like a glowing neon sign. it’s bad.

the other day, while taking my sweet time walking through mrs. greens, a sales person handed me a flyer and started chatting with me, she was nice. sometimes they are nice. by the way, i talk to strangers, i’m allowed to, i’m an adult. so anyway, i digress, so you spend $50 and get all this stuff for free. not all this stuff, like 6 things, but whatever free is free and i excepted all of it, even the golden yummy pineapple that they threw in my bag.

so anyway, one of the many of items that went home with me that day was chicken sausage. it scared me, i won’t lie. anything chicken usually scares me. and i know i’ve made plenty of chicken dishes before but i dislike anything with raw chicken. again, anyway, it wasn’t raw and it had a huge gluten free stamp on it which made it so much more awesome because i’m having a real rough time with this.

as you can see there’s some rambling today…it’s been a long week…

so yeah, i got home and realized i had spent half of my day galavanting around town and i had no plans for dinner. none. so i grabbed that chicken and a can of tomatoes…how bad could that be?

it wasn’t at all, i went back to get more. cause in case of emergency, like, 5 minutes to prepare dinner, this works. and it’s gluten free.
