Back to the supermarket

I just liked the pattern, I can’t actually abide by Cap’n Crunch. Kroger got me all excited about cooking with their mealkits, but they’re always the same anymore so I just started cooking on my own. I’ve gotten pretty good at making Chipotle’s super simple guacamole recipe to go with taco night. I did notice […]

Crispy Pork Chop

Another meal kit from Kroger to add to the collection. This time it was Crispy Pork Chop with Blistered Tomatoes and Creamed Spinach. I pretty much rate these meals in a binary way… Would I make it again? In this case, the answer is yes.

Screens, everywhere

One of my very first jobs? Going around Kroger* with a clipboard asking the manager of each section for their sales of the week and which needed a small, medium or big sign. Then it was back to the breakroom with a handful of markers and go to town, using the preferred lettering style in […]

“Daily”

Another meal kit. This one? No thank you

There have been some… less than awesome meal-kits from Kroger’s (oddly named) “Prep-Pared” selections. Tonight was Island Blackened Cod. It was… acceptable calories… but that’s not the target I’m shooting for when having dinner at home. I’ve had much better success in the past, and haven’t documented the enthusiastic thumbs up for the Bacon and […]

Sometimes, I go to the grocery, a lot

Cat Aisle

This is also the day I saw The Last Jedi, but I wasn’t about to take a photo in the theater. My initial thought of the movie was a bit blank, but like an album that grows on you or a Polaroid picture that develops slowly, I think it’ll end up being a favorite. There […]
