Whenever I head to the grocery store, I usually scoop up those “go-to” items I want to have on hand for the week – whether it’s milk, bread, cheese, eggs, creamer (for coffee!), fresh veggies or deli meats for lunches throughout the week. What are the staples you usually have on hand?
Kroger® wants to help our readers with everyday meal preparation. As many of you know, Kroger® just opened a brand new supermarket off Holland Road in Virginia Beach. Use their Store Locator  to find other locations throughout Hampton Roads (and the rest of the country) as well. I went in there for the first time and was blown away by their gourmet foods section.
Have any of you been inside or tried any of their foods yet? Their Kroger® Private Selection® products help make your home-cooked meal gourmet quality, without having to pay the premium price – perfect for us frugal shoppers!
Their Private Selection® meats, cheeses, frozen foods, snacks and desserts are perfect for dinner time with the family or an evening entertaining friends. From their thick, fluffy, crisp Belgian Waffles to Sautéed Vegetable Lasagna with tender vegetables, rolled durum pasta and 4 delectable cheeses, you’re sure to find something delicious. I picked up a few items yesterday and they were a hit at home, so check them out next time you run into Kroger® to get your deals of the week.
