Grrr, stupid Kroger!!

I swear... you would think that a grocery store would ya know, RESTOCK throughout the frickin day. But apparently not!
We went there and like most of the veggies were cleaned out. I wanted to get some more zucchini, but there was only 2 scraggly looking ones left. I went to grab some orange bell peppers, and almost all of them were gross and soft.
So frickin ridiculous. I didn't even get everything I wanted, but whatever.

We did buy an expensive small little container of Coconut Bliss ice cream. Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge flavor. It's sweetened with Agave Syrup which a lot of paleo users use. After dinner I had a bit of it. MAN is that a lot of coconut! It almost tasted like alcohol. That's how strong the coconut flavor is. It's almost too much.
The consistency is just like regular icecream though. It's just the taste you have to get used to. Thankfully my dislike of coconut smell will keep me from wanting to devour it all.

We may have to go back to the grocery store. Planned on making some jambalaya, but started getting fed up by the time we got to the seafood section and just said screw it.
So yeah, this grocery trip was a big disappointment.

Here's tonight's dinner. Salad & 2 pan fried pork chops. MMM MMM
Bought some Cajun spices that I wanted to try out and used it on the pork chops. AWESOME.
Salad was the rest of the bagged stuff, grape tomatoes, cauliflower, half of a chopped up boiled egg. Dressing was apple cider vinegar, olive oil and some pickled jalapeno juice. Also topped it off w/ some freshly ground black pepper.

OO Only good deal we really got at Kroger was on the apple cider vinegar. Only a dollar for a big 32oz bottle.

I can't stand grocery shopping when there's absolutely nothing to pick from! We have that problem a lot here.

The dressing on that salad sounds delicious! I might have to make it sometime!

Kroger frustrates me to no end. I absolutely despise going there now. I have to grocery shop early in the AM before 9. After that, there are too many kids, people and undesirables in the way.

This Kroger USED to be good. Or well, it's a lot better than some of the places we used to have to shop at.
You have to get there at JUST the right time to get the produce that has just been restocked. And of course they don't start doing that until everyone and their mother is there shopping. SIGH
