Such a helpful grocery store employee

Filed under: thoughts — anotheryarn @ 5:01 pm

A few weeks ago I bought a bunch of local, wild, watercress.  I mulled over what to do with for so long that it, ahem, went yellow and slimy on me.  Of course by the time I realized this I already had the avocado to make this Grapefruit and Watercress salad from Everyday Food.  So last night while TheHusband was at the grocery store I asked him to pick up a bunch of watercress.  I knew the store had it because I had seen it earlier this week while grocery shopping.  Our phone reception was crummy though and so TheHusband asked a grocery store employee for help (someone from the produce department no less).

When TheHusband got home I asked how finding the watercress went, “oh fine, the checker even knew what it was, this rooty looking thing.” And I think “uh oh” I’m too familiar with telling the checker what type of green leafy object is in the bag – and watercress tends to have roots attached but I’d never describe it as “rooty”.  And TheHusband pulls out a big chunk of celeriac.  Doh.
