Believe it or not, grocery shopping has become one of our favorite things to do and here’s why…
Alright, I know what y’all are thinking, “Grocery shopping? Ya no, I’ll pass”. I would’ve thought I was crazy too because grocery shopping was rarely an enjoyed outing when I was in college, but, something changes when you get married and both enjoy cooking! (Also, we knew that our Chick-fil-a and Whataburger college diets couldn’t last any longer.)
Marcus has always been the more experimental one of the two of us, so even if I have a recipe right in front of me and I purchase all of the correct ingredients, he won’t be far from tossing in a few extra things that he thinks can “spice it up” (pun intended). Our grocery trips turn fun that way because we’re always trying something new or recreating a favorite dish, now knowing what to change, add, or do differently. So from grilling, baking, blending, mixing and everything in-between, we have been pushing ourselves to try new things and test our kitchen skills.
This month, we got more comfortable into our new routine and city, giving us more opportunities to relax and be willing to try all of these new things. We’ve enjoyed having company over and trying out new recipes, I mean, pizza is only a phone call away if it turns out not so hot, so it’s worth a shot. We’ve always loved entertaining and now, having our own space together is only getting us more excited about our future and the memories there are to make!
