....it's because I am cleaning out my pantry, and I am pretty sure something is alive in there.

Since I am procrastinating I think I will take a random poll.
When you run out of something, like say chocolate chips, or a gallon of milk, or some some important ingredient from a recipe you are making, do you send your husband to the store to go get it?
I can literally say that in 13 years of marriage I haven't ever asked The Mister to go out and get something for me last minute (he may read this post and remember for me, but I don't think I have.) It just never occurred to me to do so. If we don't have an ingredient, I either don't make it or I go get it myself (although this very rarely happens...my going to get it, not my running out of something needed).
I was talking to my cousin the other night. She is in her second trimester of her first pregnancy and we were laughing about her crazy cravings, which are not so much about crazy foods, but crazy times she wants those foods. For instance, she was craving the banana bread late one night. Not just any old banana bread but the one made from her great grandmothers recipe. This recipe makes A LOT of bread, and she only had so many bread pans, so she sent her husband to the grocery store at 11:30 at night to buy another bread pan.
OK, I would never have done that. And I'm pretty sure The Mister wouldn't have been too keen on going to the store in the middle of the night either. This of course got me wondering if the The Mister and I are abnormal? (that's sort of rhetorical question, we are quite secure in our abnormal-ness. For the most part.)
Anyway, that is why I am polling y'all. Do you run out and get items needed, or do you send your husband. I want to know your thoughts on this. I am also asking this because the blog has been eerily quiet this week and I am starting to get a complex.
Talk to me!
All right. All right!! I am going back to the pantry now.
