Frosty Pumpkins This Week

by on Oct.05, 2012, under Fun Stuff, Good Eats, Life

No one in my neighborhood has put out a pumpkin on their porch yet, but I’m ready for one! The weather has cooled off a lot and I think a pumpkin this week would have no problem lasting until Halloween. The cool air is like a refrigerator and will keep it from spoiling.

I found a few pumpkins at Kroger yesterday, but they want $9 a piece and there were not very many to choose from. I don’t know why, but I have this deep feeling that a pumpkin should only cost about $4 or $5 – not $9 . So I guess I will look for a roadside stand or a charity pumpkin patch if I’m going to be spending $10 for this year’s pumpkin. I think the Boy Scouts or a church youth group could use that money a little better than the Kroger company.

Empty Pringles Cans

by on Sep.20, 2012, under Good Eats, Life

The price of regular potato chips has gone up so much that the little bit you get in a bag full of air is outrageous. So I’ve stopped buying big bags of chips and picking up several cans of Pringles when they go on sale at the grocery store.

The Pringles can is always full and there is none of that bullshit excuse about why is the bag 3/4 empty because of “settling” during shipping. The potato chip bags are not clear – they are completely coated on purpose – so you cannot see how few chips are actually in the bag until after you’ve bought them and taken them home.

One thing that worries me is the empty Pringles cans seem like such a waste to throw them away. I wish I could think of something creative or useful to do with the cans. If you have any idea,s let me know. I go through at least 2 cans every week – they add up quickly.

Carry My Damn Brands Please

by on Sep.05, 2012, under Good Eats, Life

What the fuck is going on with Kroger? They just remodeled the store by my house and almost doubled it in size, but they have actually cut back on the brands that they carry. I thought a bigger store would mean more stuff to shop from, but evidently a bigger store just means more stuff on the shelves of what they sell the most of – not a bigger variety.

I used to be able to go to Kroger and get all my shopping done for the whole week. The only brand of anything they didn’t carry was my favorite peanut butter, so I would have to go to Publix once every 6 – 8 weeks and buy my peanut butter from Publix. Of course, while I’m at the Publix I will spend my grocery money for the week at that store and not go to Kroger that week.

Now the Kroger has stopped carrying Wonder Bread. WTF is that about? With two huge bread aisles, I can’t believe they can’t find room on the shelves for a dozen loaves of Wonder Bread.

At first when I looked for the Wonder Bread and couldn’t find it, I thought maybe they had sold out and the bread truck hadn’t come to replenish their stock. But, no. Turns out they are not carrying Wonder Bread anymore.  So, one more reason to go to Publix – and to go more often. I eat a lot more Wonder Bread than I do peanut butter. I might start doing all my shopping at Publix since that’s the only place I can buy Wonder Bread. Even the fucking Wal Mart doesn’t carry Wonder Bread.
