I read it somewhere on the Internet...

After reading this, seeing this, and reading this, I've decided to go here tomorrow since I have the day off. The closest one is in Eagle Rock very close to Vicky & Bryan's house, but I won't go visit them (or their precious Paola) because I plan to go during the day when they'll both be at work. I am fairly excited about what I might find! Maybe if I'm lucky I'll find some HP Sauce and wine gums! I just hope the prices will not be in £.
As an aside, when I was in the UK the two times that I was there, I was always petrified that I'd have to write out the £ sign because I can never remember which direction it faces and I didn't want to look dumb whilst accidentally writing it the wrong way. I can't remember if I ever had to write it out, but I think I probably didn't.
So the other day when I went to the store I bought some items and now I realize how abundant my choices are for breakfast in the morning. Very, very abundant. Most days I really only have one plan...it changes, but it's the same until I use it up. For instance, if I have a loaf of bread, my breakfast "choice" will be toast until that loaf is gone. Or if I have apples and peanut butter, my "choice" will be apples and peanut butter until I run out of either the apples or the peanut butter. But somehow I now have three or four options all at my fingertips and it sort of overwhelms me in the morning. Now I know what you're thinking - "Jenny, it's hardly difficult to overwhelm you in the morning because you're not a morning person and, thus, totally overwhelmable." True. Very, very true. But, that doesn't change the fact that I have so many options (yogurt, cereal, toast, apples & peanut butter, and more!) that I'm just really at a loss with which option to choose that I'm still in the rut of "Well, I had toast yesterday, so I should have toast again today so that I finish off the loaf so that I can move on to the next breakfast item."
All of this is to say that I won't be buying breakfast items at Fresh and Easy tomorrow. If anything, I should try to buy lunch-type items because now I've run out of lunch-type stuff.
I also was kind of thinking there should be a cookbook of main course dinners you can do from memory, but then it also occurs to me that if you can do those main courses from memory, no cookbook should be needed. Catch my drift?
