A small act of Christmas insanity.....
Well, it is undoubtedly a little odd (at least as far as folks here in South Mississippi might be concerned), and I'm choosing to blame it on Christmas. So there.
I love crystallized ginger but it's rarely sold here, and then only at the Christmas holidays. For the past two years there has been no ginger! I checked every grocery, and I requested it. But no joy.
The other day I found three containers of crystallized ginger at a store where I rarely shop, and I was over the moon.....so over the moon that I unintentionally hassled the store manager for the price while the poor man was off duty and trying to do his own shopping. Very bad of me--apologies, Mr. Manager. The price of the ginger, while higher than I might have wished, was affordable so I bought all three containers.
Seriously, if you offered me a year's supply of dark chocolate or a weeks's worth of ginger, the ginger would win hands down. It's lovely stuff. I'm going to put it into a better container and hide it away in the corner of the pantry. And, no, sorry, I will NOT share. It's mine! All mine!
.....I wonder if any of the other stores has some. Yes, greed has set in. Teehee!
