This weeks dinners, a disclaimer, and an impulsive grocery trip confession:

DISCLAIMER: We have lots of fun visitors to Austin this week so most of these meals have a high probability chance of rotating or getting kicked to next week.

CONFESSION: Yesterday at the store I was collected all the makings for a delicious slow cooker pot roast meal. Then I turned and a corner display caught my eye. I gave in to my impulsions and I strayed from my list! Terror. I replaced an entire pot roast meal worth of food and replaced it with two simple and ridiculous items.

A pound of ground beef

And a box of hamburger helper.

WHAT?!? I don’t even have nostalgia about hamburger helper. I have no idea what came over me. I’m sure though there is a meaning behind the madness.

My most likely theory at this point is that there is a severed finger in the box and I’m going to discover it and call Mr. Boyardee or whoever makes that stuff and then he’ll give me a million dollars never to tell anyone. So you’ll never know if I was right or not.

My second theory is that I suffer from small seizure of brain craziness. This theory is supported by the fact that I’m pretty certain I threw away an entire bottle of Tide last week. I got it from alice in the botched order, used it for one load of laundry and never saw it again. I mean how can you throw away something that weights 8 lbs without noticing?!? There may also be a gang of underground detergent thieves who supply to laundromats and dry cleaners, which would bring is back to theory one.

Yes, theory one indeed-dilly-doo.
