USA trigger edition

Photobucket We boarded. Photobucket We toasted. Photobucket We dined. Photobucket Then with eyes wide open thanks to jet lag, we hit the Wal-Marts! Photobucket Why all the food in cans? Are we so busy that we can't be bothered to use anything besides our trigger finger? I know we like our guns, but come on, you can only put a trigger on so many things. When you "blast" your pancakes onto the pan, do you feel more accomplished because it only took one finger? I want input people. Now let's talk cheese. Talk about variety. Does one stand there and really contemplate which flavor they like best or do you just grab one and in the wise words of my sister-in-law, do you say, "Oh who cares it will make a turd". That saying cracks me up. Photobucket Funny thing is, this cheese is French, here it's called La vache que rit, but the USA has flavored varieties and we don't. Photobucket You also forget how bright the cereal isle is in the USA. There are no colored cereals in France, unless you go to the American food store, where you will not pay $3.00, you will pay 12.00 Euros. OUCH. Photobucket I'm sure we looked like real assholes walking around taking pictures repeating, "It's sooo cheap!", (okay truth be told, I looked like a real asshole, but I'm taking Pretty down with me just by association). If you look closely you will see a package of Red Twizzlers in the cart. We went back many times for more. I have no idea what's in Twizzlers, but it's oddly addictive. I'm breaking the trip down into multiple posts, so you have plenty of time to respond to my questions. Just for reminder purposes, I want your thoughts on food in cans. Cheers.

Seriously. You post that one liner one your blog.I am kicking your non existent ass when I see you next. That was after a shity meal I had prepared after not having hit Wallyworld and limited food supplies in the pantry. You are killing me Peg. But alas you are right. We are a land of convience and that is what it boils down to. I must say I have never bought the pancake in a can. Doesn't look right but I think it would work in the camper. One less dish to wash. Does it count that I am real busy? Maybe I will change after the house is done? Here is to hoping

Ok, camper is a legit reason for blasting a pancake;-)

I will admit I have purchased the aerosol pancakes... but only because I thought they were hilarious would would make the perfect stocking stuffer for Grita!
I didn't... but in retrospect I am wondering why I didn't do the whip cream out of a can directly into the mouth trick with the aersol flap jack batter... perhaps another purchase in eminent.
And while we are at it, I think cookie dough in a can would be a damn fine idea... for that occassional bad day at the office. A quick hit of dough to the tongue in a lovely flower shape.
Love ya bunches!

How could I forget Whip Cream in a can? I must tell the truth, there is a fresh can in my fridge at this very moment! As for the cookie dough, if Rita makes it and cans it I'm in, besides that you're on your own;-)

My daughter and I when to Doll House to buy a Sherri Lee dress that my daughter was obsessed with. I received no service from the sales staff until I asked. They gave my daughter a few styles to try on when asked what size my daughter would be, she pointed at the dress my daughter had on and said “that size”. I noticed that the dresses had no size tags on them and when I asked the sales staff about that, they got frustrated with me and gave no explanation. So I left the store with a much deflated daughter, went home and ordered the dress online and saved $200.
