So finally I decide, well...I'll just find a Wal-Mart employee and ask them where it is. In my mind, I round the next aisle, find that blue shirted enthusiastic and helpful employee who says "flaxseed you ask? I'm not positive where that is, but I can certainly help you search!" We then peruse an aisle, one of us finds this evasive little bugger, we meet with a high-five and a "good job!" and I go on my way. Well if you're thinking I must be dreaming...you're absolutely right. Apparently my idea of things and reality had a one person difference. I looked down five aisles and did not see a single employee in sight. At this point, my banana and Nutella snack that I ate before shopping (to keep me from being hungry and thus purchasing one of everything in the entire store) had worn off, I had a buggy full of items, and everyone else had apparently decided it was time to play bumper buggies. I considered just abandoning my buggy and running up and down every aisle screaming "WHERE IS THE FLAXSEED?!?" but decided against it since I now live in a small town where everybody knows everybody and didn't feel like getting ushered out sans groceries.
I resigned myself to a flaxseedless shopping trip, and with slumped shoulders went to checkout. This was my buggy.
There's just one thing missing...*sigh*Recipe from Alton Brown of course.
