I knew what I wanted for bakery. Kringle. I will put up kringle against any other morning donut/danish/bagel/muffin/whatever you got baked breakfast good. It is the best. I figured 2 of those would do. One nutty, the other with some kind of fruit filling. Unfortunately, it would be at the kringle that my theme for this shopping spree would start.
I had a choice of raspberry, walnut, pecan, and almond. No cherry, apple, cheese, or even strawberry. I grabbed the one raspberry and the almond. Must get almond because it tastes like an amaretto kringle. I also grabbed a cherry danish coffee cake.
Next stop was the meat section. Ribeyes were on sale. But word was they were small. Word was right. Not a single one of the cuts they had out there was over .75 of a pound. Not one. WTF?!?!? Though I was tempted to buy 2 or 3 to make a good steak, I decided not to and went with a T-bone. Probably should have walked over to the meat counter and said something but I didn't want to spend that much time in the store. Heck, I had cheese to buy.
Keeping up with the theme, I learned a valuable lesson. Though we have plenty of cheese in this state of ours, you apparently do go to buy some on the last day of the sale. It was like a ghost cheese refrigerator. Empty spindles where bags of shredded sharp cheddar, mozzarella, and Monterrey jack should be hanging. I felt lucky to get any at this point yet I did manage to get what I needed. It looks to be a very cheddarry weekend.
Having gotten the shopping done, I went home and settled in to a nice beer as my reward. I had some Big Sky Scape Goat waiting to be enjoyed. It is a refreshing pale ale. Just the right amount of hops and a smooth taste. I would recommend the Scape Goat to all ale drinkers. It seems that along with Moose Drool, that Big Sky makes some good beers. I will have to keep an eye out for any other of their brews that show up at the local store. I haven't been disappointed by their beers yet.
There was one small side effect though. My butt was sounding like a trumpet this morning. I could have been in the horn section for the band Chicago. And let me tell you, it is not Saturday in the Park. Ok, I know I really didn't need to let everyone know that part but I thought it sounded pretty funny throwing a Chicago song out there while having gas. C'mon, admit it, you laughed a bit.
I am out until maybe Monday. Have a good weekend and rock on with your bad selfs!
