What did you Forget?

I alway forget something at the store for the holiday.  This time it was flour.  I only have about 1 cup of flour and my secret stash of butter????  It got used for some baking last weekend and I forgot to replenish.  So I am one of those people making a mad dash to the grocery store on Thanksgiving morning.

So far I think I'm good, but there's only 3 of us so it doesn't really matter anyway! But I live in a small town and the grocery stores are closed today. If I need something it's a 30 mile drive so it had better be something major if I'm driving that far for it!

I forgot half and half for a recipe but I realized it last night and was able to go out and get it then.

I kinda wishthe only grocery store in my small town WOULD be closed so the employees can spend the day with their families.  There was a day when hardly anything was open on Thanksgiving or Christmas and people managed.  Just my personal wish that it would be that way again.

 I didn't forget anything this time, but that's upsetting when it happens.

shhhI give dh a list of near impossible to find ingredients just to get him from under foot for a while and most of the time he takes the kids with him. I think that he's grateful for the errand. If he does'nt find the stuff at our "go to" store, he does not go to other stores to find it ... He just blows it off and buys Power Bars! LOL

I agree with this yet there seems to always be that 1 money hungry store open during the Holiday usually some people will try to work it for the extra chance to make more money for Holiday pay.. It is sad how society works now.
