Lawman and I did what some might consider a strange thing on our vacation. However, we do this just about every time we're in this particular place.
We went to a grocery store.
However, they're not your typical grocery stores. Ok, maybe it is for some of you depending upon where you live but compared to what we have available for food shopping, it's anything but typical.
As a matter of fact, in my opinion, it's out of this world! If I had access to this kind of place, our grocery budget would have to grow. There was so many unusual things available.
You see, my grocery stores have the standard mix of food -- dairy, produce, meat counter, deli counter and rows and rows of boxed and canned items. And a small, teeny, tiny section of organic products. Huckleberry's and The Rocket had a multitude of products I'd never seen. Kefir - I'd read about it on several blogs but had never seen it. Some I'd never heard of - black bean flakes. What do you do with them? (If you know, please tell me.) And talk about gourmet spreads and ready-made salads. I could have had a feast right there in the aisle.
There were so many varieties of beans, grains and spices available in bulk. I probably looked like a kid in a candy store as I walked up and down the aisles.
If there's anyone out there reading this that has access to such stores on a regular basis I'd love to hear from you. Do you do all of your shopping at such stores? Purchase only select items there?
Now that I've returned home and had to go to my ever-so-mundane grocery store to gather food for my family, I've decided that next time I visit I will pack an extra carry-on bag that I will fill to the brim with these unique food items and bring them home with me.
