Default Not Dinner Tonight

This was a harried day with an early but large lunch. By the time I got away
from the office the last thing I wanted was to cook or sit down to a
"dinner". I just wanted to sit at the PC, and relax against a background of
the PBS Friday night jazz broadcast. Thoughts of instant snack foods filled
my head, and a stop at the supermarket on the way home seemed to be the
answer. As I entered through the produce section the pile of avocados caught
my eye and the fact that there were some that were actually ripe enough to
use. I bought several, enough for a nice bowl of chunky guacamole, not
instant, but quick work. This store makes their own fresh tortilla chips
throughout the day, so a big paper bag of those was definitely in order.
They were still warm. I don't put tomato in my quac, but I had a taste for
something with tomatoes. I popped down the Mexican food aisle and found a
jar of black bean, corn, and tomato salsa. The in-store bakery beckoned on
the way to the cashier. Did I have to see that fresh coconut cream pie? Not
Southwestern, but their pies are definitely delicious. Death by snacking
seems to be the course of the evening! :-)
