My husband said thatís a good idea.
speaking of that kind of thing, you must google The late Jeanie Robersonís monologue about sending her husband to the grocery store ! It is hilarious.

My husband would like this also. He gets very detailed when doing the grocery list.

I take photos of what I want and I have to be exact, two 3" red potatoes, if I just say red potatoes he's confused. Same with onions, anything where there is more than one choice and he panics. I guess he doesn't want to get the wrong thing. He does a great job and never comes back with cookies or other stuff not on the list.

I was laughing hysterically, but in some cases. It would be a good idea.

My DH does do a lot of the grocery shopping. That has resulted in him bringing home some "questionable" items! He will always say something along the lines of...thought you might like to try this, or maybe you'll find this interesting! Now....he knows what a picky eater I am. He knows that I think ketchup is spicy. He knows I don't like grit or texture. In reality he wants to try these things, (and I have no problem with that) but he can "blame" me if he doesn't like it!! Maybe I need to start using pictures!!

I usually shop for myself. My food sensitivities make it a bit complicated. When my ankle was broken and I couldn't drive, I'd have to write very detailed lists and did include pictures sometimes lol.

I have sent him pics of what I want from Christmas or birthdays with the caption "This would be a good gift" Eliminates getting a lot of expensive stuff that I really don't want or need.
