I keep saying that people are getting less creative, less able to cope with new things, and today at the grocery store, I saw another sign. I rolled my eyes, and went on to finish my meager shopping (potatoes and ‘eyeball juice’ — contact solution [I had a coupon — pronounced ‘coop’n’ of course]). What was it? What was it that made me cringe and sigh and shake my head?
Pre-jarred turkey brine spices. It’s salt, brown sugar, peppercorns, allspice berries, a little candied ginger, and veggie stock, or something similar. The recipe’s up on Food Network for the version we used (Alton Brown’s version). Who’s paying $9 for $1 of spices and 50 cents of salt? Especially out here, in my middle class neighborhood? Don’t people have a stocked spice cabinet anymore?
I’m just in a grumpy mood today, I guess. I started ranting this morning about someone posting on Rav in Text Speak. “Kid’s 2 day need 2 learn 2 do s’thing 4 themselfs.” Yeah, and they need to learn to SPELL and type. *gah*
Get off my lawn, you kids!
