While driving to Rockford, Roamy saw all the corn along the way. Our county is a big corn producer and he wanted to check the crop. We hopped out of the car, but Juliet stayed behind in the air conditioning. Roamy said that the crop looked good and hoped that they could have some corn to eat, while they are visiting. I got one of the extra large carts and asked if the two would like to ride in the cart. I didn't know that Roamy was such a scamp. He wanted to careen around aisles and do wheelies in the meat department. Everyone was watching us. I told them that I was planning on making a lot of Italian foods, while they are here. We needed ingredients for sauce. Roamy showed us his favorite brand of tomatoes.
He and Juliet drooled over the produce department. They had never seen so many peppers. I let them pick out a few peppers for stuffing. The ones that they chose were so big. Such big appetites for such small people.
Roamy and Juliet asked why I didn't just buy a jar of sauce. There were all kinds, but I told them that I make a special sauce for company. "Just wait till you taste it," I told them..."I'm proud of my sauce." Juliet said that they call sauce gravy in Italy. I think that she's Italian. We were holding up traffic in the sauce aisle. People were giving us dirty looks...so we moved on
Our cart was full and we loaded the bags in the trunk and back seat. We all had to sit up front on the way home. Roamy wanted the AC turned off...whew. We had the radio blaring 50's music, we were singing and the breeze was coming in the window. We got home and pulled into the garage. Today wasn't so bad...we had lots of help carrying things in and putting things away. Roamy and Juliet checked the receipt.....I heard a little tsk tsk...so much food for just two!
When our lunch was finished...just soup and sandwiches we all were tired. Joe took a nap, and I sat in my chair. Roamy and Juliet settled into the big red chair. They were exhausted after experiencing marathon shopping. Today is another day and we have more adventures planned with this family. Come back tomorrow for more of Roamy's adventures.
