One of my favorite parts of the week is going grocery shopping with my husband. I run around & cross things off my list. He pushes the cart & samples the cheeses. It just works.
I had to work the better part of this weekend so Garr was forced to do the grocery shopping alone. I really thought it would be OK. He’s seen me in action so many times before & I made an extremely detailed list with a full week’s menu. The poor thing never stood a chance.
Take this naan for instance. The kind I usually buy is in a very peculiar spot in the store. I did everything but draw a diagram to explain to the man where it was, how many I needed, etc. What does he come home with? 18 mini naan. “But it was garlic flavored & I could smell it through the packaging.” K.
Other questions asked while he was wandering like a lost puppy in the store:
“Where is cotija cheese?”
“Why do you need frozen corn?”
“What do you mean by spicy cheese?”
“Wtf is nutritional yeast?”
“Can I get cereal?”
He’s so adorable it physically hurts. Plus, now I will only ever eat garlic naan so….

Haha, is clear you both tried.
I understand your pain…lol! I’ve been wanting to try the Naan breads I’ve seen in the store. I have high expectations, because I have had it fresh from a Tandoori restaurant called Chipotle Kebab where it is amazing! Love how he brings you garlic Naan and now you insist it be garlic!
That’s so cute!! I wish I planned ahead enough to grocery shop for the entire week. I usually buy all of the basics like vegetables meat and dairy stuff but then when it comes down to actual recipes I always end up going to the store for one thing or another throughout the week.
Oh man, these look incredible. So wholesome too! Thank you for sharing, I’m inspired to make my own!
They look so great and really helathy because of the vegetables! Maybe we could also try to make Naan at home, i made it about 2 years ago and they turned out quite good (not as good as at a indian restaurant, of course). I am a vegetarian and I am always looking for new recipes, this one would too, be great as a leftover for lunch at school I think!
Much Love, Taykure.
