It doesn’t take much to make me happy . . really. Vince might not agree but that’s only because he has no idea how demanding and spoiled most wives are. Not any of you, of course! 🙂
When I’m in the grocery store, I usually have a list and if it isn’t on my list, I’m not looking at it. Yesterday I had gone to the store and they had iceberg lettuce on sale for something like .78 a head which is really cheap for our area. But, there’s hardly anything we like to do with iceberg lettuce. We usually use the leafy type lettuce but for .78, I was thinking about what I could do. And then I saw this:
They had Greek, Italian and Spanish flavors. We love putting Boscoli on our salad but I can’t buy it here and we’re just about out. We also put Boscoli on sandwiches so I don’t want to run out before I get back to Louisiana so we haven’t been using it much on salad. Thought I’d grab this jar of “Just Add Lettuce” in the Greek flavor and try it out. All I did was shred about 1/4 head of iceberg lettuce, added some chunks of fresh cauliflower because it absorbs flavors so nicely, dumped a little less than half a jar of the “Just Add Lettuce” and I’m telling you . . it was as good as any salad in any Greek restaurant! Lots of feta cheese, oregano, olives and even some stuffed grape leaves. I will be buying more of this. Can’t wait to try the other flavors.
The other thing I’d never noticed in the grocery store was this:
I always buy the packets of Ranch dressing mix but this was less expensive. It tells you on there how many tablespoons to use for one packet and I can make just a little or a lot when I want to make dressing. Pretty convenient, huh?
What have you found in your grocery store lately that’s exciting that you’ve never seen before? Do tell!
