Another Monday

OK, so it’s going to be a stupid day, got it.

Hit Total Wine, got what I needed, and then every damn grocery store on the way home and could not find the Rice Select Risotto rice. Rice Select is my preferred brand for any non-Minute Rice, good quality, resealable canisters, … Continue reading
