Day Two of the Week

Yes its a little after 5 Eastern time and I am pouring coffee down my throat and getting ready to hop in the shower.  The week continues but I have a week to continue so that's a major upside!!

I have finally decided what to make tonight and they are little Kabob's.  They sound pretty easy, some marinade, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and a basil leaf all speared on a skewer!  The down side is I need to stop at the grocery store on the way home.  That would not be a problem but the store near me for some unknown reason only carries their brand of mozzarella cheese and it is shredded.

Yes, I will have to skip the Piggly Wiggly on the way home.....off to either Publix or Harris Teeter.  I wouldn't have thought of a block of cheese as something gourmet but...apparently the people at the Pig do.  I remember my first shopping trip there when we moved to South Carolina from California...I was looking for french cut string beans.  They were no where to be found, then I went to the cereal aisle to get some oatmeal and it was in a small space on the bottom shelf the grits section. I will never forget finding Velvetta and the Cheez Wiz in the refridgerated cheese (sort of) section. It was a different kind of experience.

Even though I often cannot find the extravagant items I am looking for at the Pig, just about everyone there knows me if not by name then by site.  They ask after my husband (I think some of the ladies secretly lust for him) and how things are at work.

Well into the shower I go!  Perhaps pictures of the skewers later today....
