Happy Ad Thursday!

Hatch pepper time is here!  Hatch scones, Hatch salsa, Hatch tortillas, Hatch it all up!  It’s the high holiday season for the favorite pepper of grocery stores, so brace yourselves for roasters, bags of blackened peppers everywhere, and some ninny making Hatch limeade and cooling it off with artisanal ice cubes.

File_003It’s Hatch chile pepper time! The High Holy Season of the Pepper Most Favored by Grocery Stores, with Hatch scones, Hatch salsa, Hatch marinades, Hatch brownies, and Hatch tortillas.  Can you eat it? You can Hatch it up!  So prepare yourself when you head out for a shop for the wafting smoke from the roasters, the piles of bags of blackened peppers, and probably some ninny selling Hatch limeade with artisinal ice cubes. 

I joked in a Facebook post about making raisins in the front yard the week it hit over 110 degrees, but this week might be the week to actually give it a try, with the cheapest grapes I’ve seen in a long time.  Also spotted–Concord grapes and champagne grapes, which are both fun if you’ve got a fancy party or are just fancy all on your own.

20% off everything frozen at Sprouts.

It seems like half of Randalls is ‘buy four things and get lower prices’, in their ongoing effort to have you walk in the door.  You don’t have to purchase four of a single item–you can get a can of this, a box of that, some pickles and Ziploc bags and get the lower price on each item.  You might want to check their flyer out at the link below and see if any of your staples are on there at a stock-up price.  If you’re not sure, go ahead and ask me!

Happy Ad Wednesday

Sure, by the time you read this it’ll be Thursday, but I started it on Wednesday and we’re all just going to agree to let me have this win, okay? I’m easing back into things. It’s a process. If pretending I hit ‘Publish’ on Wednesday makes me feel better I’m going to roll with it. I had to drive practically the entire length of Lamar during rush hour and there were a lot of people who I will call ‘lackadaisical drivers’ because all my other words for it are all really bad ones.

So let’s get to the important stuff, and for the love of god will you all promise to use blinkers and not travel in the turn lane? Thank you.  Shop on, Cheepsters!

Randalls

 You’re not going to believe this, but they’re upping their ‘effing Randalls’ quotient more than usual.  That is an actual tag that I use. Stuff like that is why people keep asking about my SEO, I think.  Back to effing Randalls:

Yes,  that last one is non-grocery, but you know what makes people happy? 20 flowers. For 150 pennies you can make someone feel like they’re important to you. Go crazy, spend $3 and get 20!

Happy Ad Thursday!

This will be short and sweet because Cheepie’s got a date!  I’m going downtown to meet up with a ton of other food bloggers at the BlogHerFood conference.  I feel somewhat like an interloper, since I focus on groceries (after that Family Dinner experimental phase) and everyone else is cooking/eating out/being famous on twitter, but I blog about food so off I go!  

Randalls has mangled their ad so much that I didn’t even try to decipher much past the meat loss-leaders. Betweeen the FAB5!, limits, minimums and $5 FRIDAY!!!, it’s pretty much as chaotic as a weekly grocery sale can be.  Sure, something you want is likely on sale, but you might have to buy only between 2-4 of them, possibly only on Friday. This is why my blog has a tag for ‘effing Randalls’.

This week’s highlights: pork loin, asparagus, apples both organic and not.

NOTE: The chicken on sale at HEB this week is Hill Country Fare brand. I’m pretty sure these are the ‘enhanced with solution’ kind. If this matters to you, make sure to read the label!
