So...so...so... Tomorrow's the Big Day! Day One of my Year-long (hopefully life-long) adventure into ditching most packaged foods and most dining establishments! I went to the grocery store -- military commissary, on pay day. Hand over the Medal of Brave Shopping, please. Earned. I stocked up.
Except NO ONE has canned pumpkin OR sugar pumpkins on their shelves. Anywhere.
Luckily, I have a box of frozen squash that will substitute nicely for the pumpkin's intended purpose. Libby's wasn't kidding when they said there was a pumpkin shortage.
I found everything else I needed, including ingredients I don't normally buy (couscous, for one), because this year's also about trying new things and experimenting with recipes.
I'm ready to begin. See you tomorrow!
