Monday Rambelings

D didn’t nap today.

If you have ever had a two year old who has missed their nap, you know the hell that I just experienced this afternoon between 2-6.

On the bright side, D and I went on a quest this morning for tahini paste.  I do enjoy checking out grocery stores that cater to different cultures.  I love seeing the different produce as well as the various other products that are popular in those cultures.

I’m pretty sure D somehow grated the entire piece of ginger that was in the cart with him throughout the one store.  He refuses to sit in the front so he was in the basket with the items I wanted to purchase.  I saw the evidence of grated ginger on the bottom of the cart near where he was sitting.  The ginger was missing.  He was quiet for a while when I was meandering throughout the store but he was sitting down, so I thought I didn’t have to worry.  I should have known better.

We ended up finding tahini at the fancy organic store that is near us.  I had to ask if the store carried it.   I guess it makes sense logically that a product made from sesame seed would be next to the peanut butter.  I just would have thought it would be near the middle eastern items.   Maybe they should have some sort of sign for people like me.   Something like:

Did you know: Tahini is sesame seed paste.  What else is made from nuts?  That’s the aisle it’ll be in.    🙂

The sign would HAVE to include the smiley face.  You know, just like those emails or texts you get from people that tell you something mean but they don’t want you to be mad at them.   You know like:

You have 10 minutes to bring that report to the CEO 🙂

or

I’m fucking someone else 🙂

You know, the smiley face helps ease the pain of the bad news.

Back to the tahini paste.  I’m going to try to make homemade hummus. Wish me luck.
