I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to the supermarket to pick up a few things for the stuffed chicken breast or marinated pork chops I have planned for dinner, only to wonder almost aimlessly up and down the isles while racking my brain for some side dish ideas.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? ... oh no, it's just me still undecided on a side dish.
