The worst thing I did today was go to the grocery store without my list. I came home with things I didn't need (another can of garbanzo beans) and without things I did need (it's a little hard to make a tuna salad sandwich on a baguette if you don't have any baguettes).
And it took me much longer than usual to pick up the five or six items I did get, because I was in a different store from the one where I usually shop. I went out of my way because I couldn't find the sun-dried tomatoes (for the tuna salad; oh, it's going to be good) in my regular market. In the new store they were right there with the artichoke hearts, which I did find without difficulty at the usual place (again, for the salad; again, ooh).
Well, and the tuna. They didn't have any tuna steaks at store number one, so I made the special trip to number two. I could use canned tuna, but I want to poach it. (Well, that's how Rachael did it on her show, although in her book she has the recipe with canned tuna and doesn't even mention poaching a tuna steak).
So I have to go back to the grocery store tomorrow, to pick up the rest of the recipe. That would be the baguettes, but I also want some wax beans and green onions, because I plan to make a bean salad. Might as well use up all those garbanzos, you know. (And you probably call them chickpeas anyway; Rachael does.)
