A quick trip to the grocery store is what most people manage to fit in their busy schedules, but they miss so much that way. There are so many products that have much to offer that may be overlooked by the average shopper. Here are a “few of my favorite things,” the top five products that merit attention. These products were all purchased at Kroger.
These products make the list for different reasons, and, of course, everyone has different needs in their kitchen. See the products illustrated in the accompanying slide show.
1. Ken's Steak House Buttermilk Ranch Dressing is so delicious that you purchase it for the taste. It lacks that cheap tang that most bottled ranch dressings have, and more closely resembles a homemade ranch dressing.
The really great part is that Ken's Steak House Buttermilk Ranch Dressing only has one carbohydrate for 2 Tablespoons of dressing! As a diabetic, this is very important, but this dressing is so much better than any of the others anyway. Be sure and check it out.
2. If you have never had David Pumpkin Seeds, you have never had pumpkin seeds. They are perfectly white without a single dark, jagged shell in the bag. The salty shells are so perfectly roasted that you enjoy the whole pumpkin seed with no spitting.
Pumpkin seeds are one of Dr. Oz’s super foods. You can read about that here.
3. Bubba Burgers with sweet onions are so good that they can be served as a steak. They are beef chuck, square in shape. The directions on the box tell you to leave them alone until you see grease dancing on the top. Then you flip them. The main instruction for cooking a Bubba Burger is to never, ever press it down.
4. OnCor frozen family dinners are hiding in the freezer case near the frozen garlic bread and meatballs. These Salisbury steaks can be really good with just a little trick or two. And don’t forget to hide the box!
Prepare the meats as directed on the box, but cut the last cooking interval a few minutes short. While it is cooking, put an onion and a can of mushrooms in olive oil in a small crock pot on high. Add the meat and gravy and allow to cook for a couple of hours in the crock pot on high.
5. The first time you take one gulp of Homestead Creamery milk you will know why it's worth the $2.00 deposit you pay for the glass bottle. The milk is made in Wirtz, Va. In the area around Homestead Creamery, they deliver to homes in an old-fashioned delivery truck. The milk is not branded as organic, but is free of all hormones and antibiotics, and because the milk is sold in recycled glass bottles it tastes fresher longer.
