family husband is a junk food junkie. Our grocery list routinely states "Candy for Randy". It is like a staple at the top of the list: Milk, eggs, butter, candy. I always feel a little odd when the cashier unearths these items. Hidden under a mass of nutrition from the other end of the spectrum: Organic, organic, milk, milk, milk, organic, produce, produce, orange slices, sour cherry balls, anise dolls, organic, organic, produce... I try to avoid eye contact.
Then there is the immediate foraging for snacks upon entering the door after a long days work. After a quick greeting it is straight for the chips! He will easily consume an entire bag in one sitting, before dinner. We, he, was going through three or four bags of potato chips a week. Concerned this may not be the ideal choice, I switched his snacking from conventional greasy potato chips to organic tortilla chips. Still not exactly healthy, but better I thought. This was the routine for several months.
Now I have reached the point where I am tired of spending the nearly $3.00 per bag and sick of throwing all those bags away. Think of all the money and waste we would save by making our own snacks!
