You go out and get a big-ass grocery order for the holidays, and when you finally go to start baking and cooking, you realize you're missing one staple ingredient that's really difficult to sub for?

How could I forget heavy cream!?? Of all the things to forget! I swear, like 4 of the recipes DH & I are making today call for it!

I had to go back for 1 brick of cream cheese. I bought a huge 3 lber and when I got home I realized that I needed 7-8oz bricks....the 3lber was 6. I have no idea why I spaced the math...luckily DH had to go out for booze supplies for his Irish Cream

 I do hate that! I almost always forget one thing even when I'm using a list.

LOL

I do that at times. It isn't normally a big dinner though. I go over the list of stuff we have vs the stuff we need the night before so that if we forgot anything, DH can go back out to the store that night to get it.

He didn't forget anything this year.

DH is the one that goes grocery shopping.

 That's the pits. It's happened to me many times, now I always make a list and check it against my recipes, and then it sometimes still happens. The last time it happened, I was sure I had enough chocolate chips in the cupboard, only to find out I didn't. Hopefully you can get back to the store bor it.
