I’m not going to talk about Thanksgiving this year.  Just because.  Except to say that I don’t recommend going grocery shopping (for ANYthing) two days before Thanksgiving.  Two nights before Thanksgiving, every grocery store in the country (and certainly the Wegman’s on my way home from work) is a madhouse.  Tons of shoppers clearing the shelves, tons of employees restocking the shelves (thankfully – hee), tons of cars in the parking lot.  And tomorrow, one day before Thanksgiving, will be even worse.  Lesson: whether you’re shopping for the whole Thanksgiving dinner or just getting what you need to get through the week ’cause someone else is cooking, DO THE SHOPPING THE WEEKEND BEFORE.  Plan ahead.  Words to live by.

You’re welcome.


  1. Everytime this happens to me it’s because I forgot ONE THING for the Thanksgiving dinner, so I have to wade through all of the crowds to get evaporated milk or some such nonsense.

    Happy happy turkey day to you 🙂

  2. I had to do this one year and vowed never, ever again. Of course, the one time my husband has since gone to pick up an item the Friday before, the place was fine and well-stocked. Maybe he’s magical.

    Curiosity, maybe he should always do the shopping. Use his magic as your argument.

    I hope all of your Thanksgivings went smoothly and were last-minute-shopping-free. 🙂
