I did my grocery shopping at Fresh Market this week, and I must say: What an awesome supermarket. Here’s just a few reasons why: it’s absolutely gorgeous inside (beautiful hardwood floors), it smells delicious (like freshly baked bread yesterday), the employees are super friendly, there’s a candy department and rows and rows of bulk bins with yummy things like Pumpkin Nog Granola and Peanut Butter Energy Bites, and there’s even free coffee samples, which totally got me while I was shopping. I tried a little bit of the Molten Chocolate coffee with a splash of cream and, holy goodness, it was amazing. I loved it and immediately bought some.
I really should shop at Fresh Market more often. I actually had fun yesterday, and I’m generally not a fan of grocery shopping. Maybe I should add “shop at Fresh Market” to my list of goals for 2013?
Here’s this week’s meal plan:
