to put my lunch on hold and go out to the shops to get one specific ingredient which is just a last minute enhancement, not an integral part of the dish?

I had a beautiful sesame bagel.

I had a new tub of Philadelphia cream cheese.

I had some lovely oak smoked salmon strips.

I had freshly ground black pepper.

But I did not have a lemon, so I went on a 20 minute round trip to get one (walking).

Dh thinks I am a bit of a twat for doing this, but I think it is perfectly fine and normal.

As long as your not rushed for time (in which case it would be a bit daft) I don't see the issue. If you are going to eat something you may aswell make it enjoyable

YANBU. Lemon makes all the difference.

Mintyy Thu 14-Nov-13 20:11:06

Thank you Perpy!

You understand ...

Mintyy Thu 14-Nov-13 20:11:42

And you Tailtwister, sorry x posted.

Yanbu. If it wouldn't be the same without it, it was worth it.

And you got to walk up an appetite on the way.

Perfectly normal behaviour

I would do this toogrin

Mintyy, DH has just gone to the supermarket to get me chocolate as the stuff we have in the house just won't do. I think you're being completely reasonable smile.

Yanbu, lemon makes a massive difference to smoked salmon bagels. I should know cos I can't eat lemon these days and smoked salmon is just not the same without it sad

It's 100% fine and perfectly reasonable, because it made a significant difference in your opinion, whereas, someone else might decide they couldn't be bothered, which is also fine. It's a reasonable choice to have made and certainly not something to be called 'a bit of a twat' about. I wouldn't be at all happy if my DH had said that to me.

I like lemon on bacon.
On anything really.

ThornSayre Thu 14-Nov-13 20:44:47

YADNBU. Why ever you would not do without lemon?

AthelstaneTheUnreadyFucker Thu 14-Nov-13 20:45:19

I would have got some rocket while I was there.

ThornSayre Thu 14-Nov-13 20:46:02

That should have said, not go out for lemon. I've confused myself there confused

AthelstaneTheUnreadyFucker Thu 14-Nov-13 20:47:00

In fact, you ABU. Because the only possible recipe is burnt toast, butter, salmon, pepper and lemon.
