Tales Of A Bachelor And The Supermarket

Random thoughts from my trip to the Jewel:

  • There is no such thing as "fresh" fruit and vegetables for a single person. Or at least they lose that state between the time you put them in the fridge and when you take them out to use them.

  • More men would wash their hair more often if manufacturers would sell shampoo in a bottle that a man could put in his bathroom and not be embarrassed someone might see it.

  • A trip down the frozen foods aisle reminded me of my fabulous recipe for lasagna. Here's the secret element. Transfer the lasagna from the manufacturer's tin to your own casserole dish before you cook it, not after. Trust me, it doesn't work the other way around.

  • No guilt in buying the two-for-one gourmet half-pints of ice cream. As any avid watcher of Good Eats knows, it stays fresher that way. (Less exposure to air -> less melting -> less ice crystals capturing funky freezer smells.) Keep repeating that phrase as you near the bottom of the container moments after opening it. It will get you through.
