Yesterday was a busy day, at least until dinner time when I decided to shut it all down prior to falling asleep very early.
Because of the nasty weather I allotted extra time to drive up to Sandy Springs for my feta cheese tasting paid survey. With the extra time I drove around areas I used to frequent and was stunned at the number of stores and restaurants that have closed in the past 5.5 years. Some of the closures can be credited to COVID, but others I can’t understand.
Speaking of closures, I saw that the Little Five Points Zesto is not returning, at least that’s what I gather from the fencing and the For Lease signage. I know the building suffered damage from a large tree earlier this year, but I assumed that the L5P mainstay would return.
I stopped into Kroger upon returning to East Atlanta after a very long commute home. I had to buy a few tubes of crescent rolls for my dinner creation. I made a casserole (you are shocked, I’m sure) in which the crescent rolls sandwiched ground “beef”, mushrooms, sauerkraut, and cheese; the casserole was very tasty. ðŸ˜‹
On YouTube I have been watching a baking competition show from South Africa. Along with being another outlet for product placements, they have made an interesting choice to clad the women bakers in blue aprons and the men in pink ones.
This morning will see me doing a few local chores, hitting Publix and Ace Hardware before returning to Kroger to fill the M6’s tank prior to the Christmas rush. At Ace I will be picking up my new coffee maker, which I have been told arrived at the store yesterday. At Publix I will be buying a dessert so that I have a receipt to use to attempt to claim my $20 from Philadelphia Cream Cheese.
Tonight is Top Chef dinner night, and it’s Betsy’s turn to provide the food. She has ordered a dinner from a neighborhood chef, so I am looking forward to seeing what we eat.
Hope that you have all of your Christmas shopping done and that are remaining healthy.
