Before I set out on maternity leave, a certain squash blossom friend was so sweet to gift me a Wegman’s grocery store gift card. Her brilliant intention was to allow me a chance to run and grab some cooked dinner (because their selection is incredible) when I didn’t have the time or energy to make it myself.
If you’re ever unsure of an excellent baby shower gift, I highly recommend a grocery store gift card with a kind note. SO helpful.
Anyhow, due to my extreme aversion to the terrifying traffic pattern that usually surrounds Wegman’s, I’ve held onto that gift card waiting for just the right time to swoop in and pounce on my grocery list.
Now, I highly doubt my squash blossom friend will mind, but I’ve become inspired beyond the original intentions of the gift. All of these cooking shows are making me jealous of their generous and liberal use of cheese.
Square Piece loves cheese.
But the fact remains that cheese can be pricey. Brian likes to buy the Costco’s shredded, Mexican 4-blend, which takes me an eternity to use up. Rarely do I ever enjoy other types of cheese because I don’t want to be wasteful with what we have in our fridge.
But Giada keeps using mozzarella.
And Rachael keeps using parmigiano reggiano.
And, darn it, I just flat out like blue cheese… and whatever that fancy one with the apricots is… well, it sure looks good.
So I went on a cheese spree. And it felt wonderful. My fridge smells terrible, but my heart is full.
(PS: Thanks for the milk, eggs, creamer and produce, too, Melody! XOXO!)
