The running joke in my family is that I have a shopping problem. But not the kind that you may be thinking. You see, some people are born shoppers. Well... I was not. When I was younger I would just get so overwhelmed by the mall. Too many choices, too many stores. I would hit my limit after two or three stores. But not the women in my family... oh no, they would shop and shop and shop some more.
They always found the best deals and the most beautiful looking clothes.
Apparently, they had all gotten the shopping gene that I was lacking.
Wait... could it be? Did I have the shopping gene?
Bearss Groves, where they sell oranges that were grown in the orange grove right behind their outdoor stand, as well as other fresh fruits and vegetables. They display their oranges in big crates and you fill up a paper bag with as many as you want. And since this is one of the best times all year to enjoy citrus, I get a big bag of oranges and keep them in a big fruit bowl in the kitchen.
So, it seems that the shopping gene really does run in my family. And while I may never be a mall rat, I can be confident that I will always be up for feeding my family a fantastic, gluten free meal after a long day of shopping.
