Insert Clever Post Title Here

So today I went to Walmart (ugh!) and purchased all the items necessary to try Carpoolqueen's Roasted Vegetables and Orzo. It sounds yummy!

I was disappointed that the Tyson Frozen Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts were $7.54 for a 3-lb. bag. I can usually find them for $6.00! Which has nothing whatsoever to do with CPQ's recipe but I just thought you should know.

Sweet onions were down $0.40/lb but yellow squash were up $0.50/lb.

Can you tell that I LOVE my iPhone app "Grocery IQ"?

And there were NO eggplants. Just a big empty case where they should be. Was there a run on eggplants this morning? Did everyone read Carpoolqueen's blog and stampede to the produce section? Is there an eggplant shortage I don't know about?

Also, Walmart, I am on to your store brand scam. Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Whole Kernal Corn are $0.20 per can cheaper than the Great Value brand. Hmmmph!

And your Great Value Fruit and Grain bars are NOT the equivalent of Kellogg's Nutrigrain Bars. I don't care how much cheaper they are. They are nasty.

That is all.

This probably doesn't come as a shock to you, but I wouldn't even know where to look for an eggplant at walmart.

Don't bother telling me either.

Because I'll never need to know.

I hope you love it. It was pretty tasty, and my friend Gretchen would tell you just to substitute roasted mushrooms for the eggplant.

Also, completely unrelated, have you tried grilled okra? You'll never go back to fried.....

And thanks for your encouragement today...tomorrow will be better, right?

And THAT is why I no longer darken Wal-Mart's door. Overpriced products, less than stellar produce, icky off brand labels. So glad I no longer have to shop at Arkadelphia's Okay Center (because it's not SUPER, it's just OKAY.)

Unfortunately, some of us don't have a choice in small town USA...it is Walmart or nothing. So I try to be thankful, but I don't have to like. :)

If they would at least stop moving things around...
