Hanger Danger

I am sure that you are all aware that grocery shopping on an empty stomach leads to some pretty interesting (an usually unnecessary) purchases.  I am pretty sure after our trip to Whole Foods after yoga class our basket contained:

  • A pint of cappuccino chocolate chunk gelato
  • Teriyaki chicken wings
  • Moroccan bean and vegetable stew
  • Cat food, not for me =)
  • Yogurt
  • Apples
  • Sharp Cheddar
  • Green beans
  • Multi-colored potatoes
  • Garlic
  • Two Meyer lemons

After inhaling apples and cheddar the shakes subsided.  I chased that snack with the Teriyaki chicken wings, quite tasty, and then the soup and finally a supplemental Trader Joe's white bun (who am I)?  Needless to say I wasn't feeling so great.  Originally, I was all about the gelato for dessert, but the thought of it wasn't so appealing after all the other random stuff.  This is a clear example of how hanger can distort your common sense!


  1. And I bet your fridge was still empty after that trip to the grocery store. You can imagine what ours looks right now... Not very clean and empty! Happy birthday! I hope you'll enjoy a great meal for the occasion!

  2. It's true! I will have to take a pic of our fridge. To be fair, it is a BIG fridge! Thanks so much, I have flatbread pizza and beer on the birthday horizon =)
