Grocery Outlet April 2013

I bought some great stoneware pieces for $4.99 each at the Berkeley store. Some were branded Bialetti others Cuisinart. They had pie plates, casseroles and ramekins with lids. Some larger pieces were more expensive. All are freezer, microwave and oven safe.

I'm also giving away a $30 gift card on my blog, for anyone who's interested. http://cookingwithamy.blogspot.com/20...

      1. The Double Chocolaty Chip Frappuccino ice cream is really good. Very addictive.

      2. SSF also had a sale on strawberries (16 oz for 99 cents)

      3. The SSF wine selection was lackluster 2 days ago. Nothing new or attractive.

      4. 10 lb bags of russet potatoes for $1.99

          We tried 3 of the Goldridge dressings - Caesar, Raspberry, and Honey-Mustard - all are good, none great. The Newman's Caesar is better if you can still find it.

            I found crunchy Biscoff at GO sometime before Christmas. The best version so far.

                Ritter sports are great. Did you happen to check out the wine section? I went there a month ago and it made me want to cry.

                  I only had time for a quick look at the wine section. So much of the wine there is labeled with the names of "phantom" wineries, which makes it very hard to know which wines might be a good buy and which wines are to be avoided.

                    Thanks for the sad news,I know what you mean about "made up" wineries. Looks like I'll be heading down to the RWC GO in the near future. They actually have a wine manager that cares.

                      Are you familiar with this blog? It will help you sort thru some of the wines at GO.
