Our lives in groceries

In getting ready to go grocery shopping this morning, I'm reminded of how much our food choices and cooking habits reflect the stages of our lives. As a new bride, I planned every meal in advance, posting a week's worth of menus on the refrigerator door and carefully purchasing only the items I needed to support my plans. Young OCDer that I was, there was no room for deviation, even if we didn't feel like chicken casserole on a Thursday night!

When pregnant, I craved only two foods -- chocolate glazed donuts from Krispy Kreme and green olives.
