I spent a good 3-4 minutes comparing spinach at the store yesterday. Oz's per bag, expiry dates (never manage to finish spinach so I want the freshest one - an item I can use more of before tossing = deal!)

After all that, I forgot to put it in the recipe last night.

DW posts occasionally on Cruise Critic......a certain category of people just love to brag about having 'concierge service', where they pay considerably more, (and over tip on top of that), to have someone perform some minor undertaking that they could probably have done themselves in about one fifth of the time when you factor in the initial waiting period.

Well, à chacun son goût I guess.

Oh I hate that, I did it with some thin sliced sirloin I had purchased specifically for a stir fry, and then over the next 5 nights I made other meals, and found the sirloin too late, so in the garbage it went.
