Shopping

I had a few errands to run today and it felt so good to be on the road again. I really enjoy getting in my car for a long ride.

I'm having some of my friends over tomorrow for a light lunch, mostly cold cuts and salad. While I was on the road, I decided to stop at Wegman's. This is a supermarket with stores in only 5 states, all in the east. I don't go there too often because I spend too much. It's not that they are more expensive, it's just that their food is SO good with a good variety. Their produce lasts much longer than that from the regular supermarket. It was there that I first discovered bison meat. Bison is just like beef, only better. There's less cholesterol and more flavor.

My intentions were so good. I picked out my cold cuts and salad, then decided to walk around. Big mistake. Of course, I picked up just a few "essentials" like cook and serve pudding, bread mixes for my bread machine and dinner for tonight which I really didn't need since my freezer is chock full.

If I didn't enjoy cooking so much, I'd be a regular there. They have so many and such a variety of pre-made meals, ideal for someone who lives alone. I bought dumplings and lo mein for tonight and a quiche for tomorrow's lunch. They also have soups, salads, Thai food, macaroni and cheese and so many other dinners that I don't remember.

It's such a fun store.

Sounds like Trader Joe's. I haven't shopped there for that reason, everything looks SO good!
