We had a great meal for Thanksgiving. Lunch occurred about 2:30, so I figure that was decent timing.
My sweet brother did the shopping on Tuesday. We also made a trip to the store Thanksgiving morning, for a frozen pie crust. After sorting through the beautifully-arranged pile of groceries from the Tuesday shopping trip, while at the same time organizing everything for the upcoming bake-a-thon, I realized that we had sweetened-condensed milk instead of evaporated milk.
Thus, we made trip number two to town. We stopped at the first store that was still open (approaching 10:30 A.M., but they didn’t have evaporated milk. We went to the next store, a “dollar store,” which did have a can of evaporated milk. I was so excited that I hugged the lady employee who was stocking shelves in that aisle!
