Trying a new to me, city grocer
Formerly a local family run IGA, C town had taken over this store a few years ago. Having received their ad in the mail, I checked out their prices, noting a few deals, such as this one on a private label,plain, 1 lb, bags of frozen vegetables. I stocked up on 2 of each. A bag covers 2 meals for us. I am planning on quick and easy prep as my course work begins next week. The courses are staggered, with November being the worst, with 4 night classes/week in addition to 2, one 3 hour workshop session each course. With planning, I know that we will get through it, it's short term.
In addition to the vegetables above, I got canned AK wild caught Salmon, 8 oz cans tomato sauce. They also have AP unbleached flour on sale but were out, no one at the customer service desk, customers lined up there and DD, who was with me, needed to get home to get ready for work. I may/not return for flour/rain check. The store is also located minutes from my home.
