A side effect of the grocery workers' strike is that I have to actually plan. It's out of my way to go to Green Frog Market, so I have to arrange my schedule to go, keep a list for when I do go, and all that efficient stuff. I'm not sure that I'll go back to the chain stores once the strike is over. At Green Frog Market, one pays top dollar for the meat, but it is unbelievable quality and hardly any fat at all. I wonder how it would work out, price per edible ounce cooked, if one were to compare? I'm beginning to be convinced that in buying cheap meat one pays for more than a fair share of fat. Besides, as Sumana says, how can anyone object to a market called Green Frog? Froggy went a'courting and he did ride uh huh.

We have a similar grocery store here in Lawrence. It is called the Community Mercantile, or "The Merc." It also costs a fortune, but having shopped there a few times, I can't hardly stand to buy produce anywhere else. Back to the real world.

I too have at last learned to keep a grocery list. It saves me time and money, or at least helps me buy lots of things I need. I just don't have time to go back to the store during the week for something I forgot on my Saturday morning trip.

My conniving plan to drive people from chain stores and back to quality independents is working!
But I *heart* Trader Joe's.
I don't. One of my requirements in a store is the parking lot can't be a hassle. I won't go to the Albertsons that is next to TJ's either, for that reason. Fortunately my kids go to Trader Joe's often enough that if I need something they can pick it up for me!
