I have a feeling one day I will visit all the Kroger’s in Lansing. For some reason, when I need something, I instinctively go to Kroger. Maybe it’s because I’ve been around Kroger all my life whereas the other supermarket’s in the area or foreign to me. Maybe it’s because there just always seems to be a Kroger when I need one.
J and I were in Frandor to check out Linens ‘N Things again. My dad wants some pans for Christmas and he’s very, very picky about what he wants, so we were hoping to find something cheap at LNT. They just lowered their prices again, so we thought it was a good time. We picked up a few things there, but I needed to pick up a few groceries as well and there was a Kroger not too far down the parking lot.
So, we headed back to the truck to drop of the “Things” we bought from Linens ‘N Things before heading to Kroger. I’m guessing this store is one of the older ones in Lansing. They still have an old sign on the building and the layout is a little wierd for a grocery store. When you walk in, you come in behind the cash registers. There’s only one door in and out so you come out the way you go in. If you keep walking past the cash registers, you’ll eventually hit produce and you can start shopping just like you would at any store.
We were on a mission for baking supplies. I was watching Paula’s Best Dishes on the Food Network over the weekend and saw a recipe for chocolate chip cookie dough truffles. I hate chocolate work. I don’t know how to temper chocolate and I just hate making a sticky mess for a few pieces of candy, but these looked soooooo good on TV that I had to try it.
Like a good baker, I had most of the supplies on hand, but I just used up the rest of my chocolate…or I should say J used up the rest of the chocolate to make “muddy bears” with some gummy bears we had in the house so I needed that. The other ingredient I didn’t have was sweetened condensed milk. That’s how Paula got around using eggs since the dough was intended to be raw.
I found what we were looking for rather easily as all Kroger’s are pretty much laid out the same. We grabbed a bag of milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips and the milk then headed for the check out. Since I was doing the paying, I hit the self check out and just kept J away (she hates self check out). I grabbed cheap chocolate so my total was under five bucks.
The Kroger in Frandor isn’t anything special, but it is still a Kroger, so I’m sold on it.
