I remember a time when my friends and I would get excited about a new nightclub - now it's a new grocery store that has us all abuzz.
Today I checked out a market called Sprouts that just opened near me. I have to say, it was an adventure! They specialize in locally grown produce, a lot of it organic - and unlike when I shop at Whole Foods - I didn't have to take out a bank loan to pay for a cart of groceries.
Because this was something I was doing for my life list, I took my time. I chatted with the butcher (who talked me into buying organic steak for my beef-deprived son), picked out a few things from the bulk foods bin, and decided to try yet again to purchase asparagus to see if I do more than give it a ride home, a place in the refigerator for a week or so, and then a toss into the trash can.
