I need three pounds of chicken parts for tonight's crockpot dinner.
Dilemma: Chicken parts are in downstairs freezer, and kitchen scale is upstairs. (Yes, we have two full kitchens.)
Dilemma: I have no idea what three pounds feels like.
Option 1: Bring kitchen scale downstairs, weigh chicken, bring chicken and scale upstairs, profit.
Problem: I only have two hands. And my pockets are not big enough for chicken or scales.
Option 2: Estimate three pounds.
Problem: If I am wrong in my estimate, this means another trip up and down the stairs.
Note: Due to yesterday's big weather pressure changes, I was in a lot
of pain yesterday afternoon and barely mobile in the evening; I'm better now than I was then, but am still very ouch, so trips up and down the stairs must be rationed. Spoons
, y'all. Each trip takes at least one.
Option 3: Bring kitchen scale and two plastic shopping bags downstairs. Weigh chicken. Put chicken in one bag, scale in the other, bring 'em all upstairs.
Workable, but seems overly complex.
Option 4: E-mail Adam and Judah bitching about inaccessible chicken and threatening mutiny, showings of Grease 2
, and cupcakes for dinner.
Problem: Does not actually solve chicken dilemma.
Option 5: Just bring up all the damn chicken.
Option 5.1: Put kitchen scale for downstairs kitchen on wishlist.
...this stuff is less complicated for other people, I am certain of it.
(Unrelated PS: Victoria is eating just fine and is making the horky sound less. Will still try to get some olive oil into her. When other people are home and can help/film it for YouTube.)
