Here's what I emailed my hubby at work for him to stop and pick up :
2 packs Crescent rolls (in dairy)
2 granny smith apples
1 can Mt. Dew
beets ( I prefer cubed, but sliced are ok)
salsa or con queso
I need ideas for meals for the weekend. Any requests?
And he emailed back:
Not those damn crescent rolls again….I am going to be sitting there for ½ hour again trying to figure out which ones to buy…..what kind?
1 can of Dew?
They don’t have those apples at the Pig. The ones we have at home won’t work? Do they have to be Granny Smiths?
You need me to pick out meals at the store?
So I replied:
They are called Pillsbury Crescent rolls. There's 8 in a tube. It's got that cute dough-boy on the front. Blue tube.
The recipe calls for 1 can of Mt. Dew. You do the math.
I need GRANNY SMITH apples. They're green and round. Find them.
No, I need meal ideas so I can make sure I have the needed ingredients here to cook for you.
So then...I get a phone call where he tells me that my last e-mail sounded "mean" and I could barely hear him through the tantrum that was happening on the floor next to me. And he wonders why I was in a "mean" mood.
