Parmesan Peppercorn Biscuits




Are you one of those people obsessed with reusable grocery bags?
Yea… ok good…
What if you get to the store.. park your car only to realize that you have forgotten your bags.. do you turn around and go home and get them?
No.. ok.. I guess I am the only one on that train.. let me make a note to talk to my therapist about that …
I do my best to remember my bags due to my somewhat dependency issues.

Anyway.. once while at the market I was putting down my 4th magazine when I realized I had been standing in line long enough to read 4 magazines on the rack by the checkout line.. I never get that far…
There seemed to be a problem at the front of the line that was holding us other shoppers up.
Leaning over to ask the gentleman in front of me what the issue was.. I was quickly informed that some crazy lady at the front of the line forgot her reusable bags in her car and ran out to get them because she has some strange aversion to plastic.
Huh.. well .. yea.. that’s crazy…. who does that…
I quietly went back to my checkout reading.. time seem to tick away until finally the lady came running back in saying how sorry she was she took so long..
“They weren’t in my car so I had to run home and get them”
Standing there I wasn’t quite sure what was the strangest thing about that whole scenario.. that fact that I was so engulfed in US Weekly’s last tale of Kardashian drama that I didn’t know how long I was standing there… or that she would drive all the way home to get some grocery bags while there people standing in line waiting for her to come back..
The fact that I don’t know which is the worst out of those two.. is something else I might need to talk to my therapist about ..


Parmesan-Peppercorn Biscuits
