It's Getting Hot in Aisle 3

Yesterday I spent a record amount of time at the grocery.

And even after being there for 1.5 hours, having to ask 3 different employees where stuff was, and leaving in an almost full sweat from the intense pressure, I still didn't find one thing. Chicken or Turkey demi-glaze, where are you!?

Oh Thanksgiving, who knew you were so complicated?

Here are just a few of the items that I absolutely could not locate on my own.

1) Honey - near the peanut butter, fyi

2) Stuffing - even after finding this section (near the rice), it took me an additional 15 minutes to find the brand I was recommended, which was kindly hidden on the bottom shelf in the back

3) Instant flour - not regular flour, instant flour which is apparently very different

4) Water chestnuts - I don't even remember where these were, at that point I had actually started to get dizzy

5) Demi-glaze - still no luck, I will attempt again tomorrow

This better be one damn good feast I'm creating because Thanksgiving just officially became intense! I am SO glad I shopped yesterday because it was even super crowded then. I would not want to be in those competitive aisles come Wednesday or Thursday!
