Even with my fancy-schmancy list, I had planned to make a broccoli casserole and forgot to get the broccoli!!!myrosiedog:
shay, do you know how many times I've done that? Plan to make something and forget to buy the main ingredient.
I'm so glad I'm not the only one! DH and I make up a menu for the week, and then we write the grocery list based on the ingredients for the dishes on the menu (in addition to the every-week stuff). I think it was just this summer that we had beer/garlic shrimp on the menu -- and forgot the shrimp!
