There’s something nice about having a bowl of beautiful fresh vegetables and fruits on the kitchen counter. I admit it; fresh produce is a weakness and I tend to overbuy. But not often! I usually get creative and think of new and innovative ways to use up the bounty from the grocery store.
Many of my friends and acquaintances say they hate food shopping, but I actually love it! It takes me forever in the grocery store because I want to look at everything. It’s eye candy and today was no exception. I drove the 18 miles to my favorite grocery store, Publix, in Athens.
I entered the store and was greeted by fresh flowers:
There were lots of enticing choices in the bakery. I bought a croissant to eat in honor of Bastille Day, but I'll have to save it for Sunday breakfast.
Look at the size of those strawberries on the chocolate cake. I thought it was crabapples until I took a closer look!
Special order wedding cakes are available:
|Mango and avocado|
A friend of mine from north Florida grows these Tasti-Lee tomatoes and ships them all over the country. Watch for them in your store, and if you don't find them, ask that they be stocked. They are the finest tomatoes you can buy.
|Lettuces, kale, leeks, beets, carrots, green onions, broccoli|
|Fresh fruit cut up and ready to eat!|
|The fresh fish counter|
|A good assortment of vinegar and oil|
|Back to school? Summer only started!|
|Nuts and popcorn|
|Healthy snacks occupy a small space|
|but the junk food takes up an entire isle, the only food category with such a distinction.|
|Processed food loaded with additives, salt and fat. No, thank you; I always pass this up.|
And finally, it's time to check out and head home.
Hope you are having a great weekend. It's raining in my part of the world
