I need to pop over to my neighbor's house and ask for a cup of sugar.
The only problem is that I have no neighbors at the moment. Even if I had neighbors, I probably wouldn't know them well enough to ask for kitchen staples. Frankly, I probably wouldn't trust them either.
So my darling husband is off to the supermarket to pick up a package of sugar. I couldn't tell him what amount to buy because I have know idea how they sell sugar. It's in boxes or bags (I think?), but I don't know quantities.
This got me thinking. . .when was the last time I purchased sugar? I believe it was when I was still married to my ex-husband, around 2001 or so. He liked sugar in his coffee (no comment!) so I bought it for him. Prior to that I'm not sure that I had ever bought sugar in my entire life.
So what do people use sugar for anyway? Why do I have no need for it? I can't think of a single recipe I use that calls for sugar. I only keep it in the house because sometimes people do like sugar in their coffee.
Sugar. I just don't get it.
