Manager’s Special Tips
I took my car in for some service this morning so Ben had to drop me off at work. We got really into this NPR story about a former gang member girl. Anyone else hear it?
After my short shift (1.5 hours) I walked home. Saw this sign on the way. Right smack in the middle of Los Angeles and San Diego. Kinda.
It was overcast all weekend and today the sun decides to bust out and shine on me for my walk. The camera doesn’t do my sweaty forehead justice.
I made a pit stop on the way home because we were out of lettuce. I scored 4 manager’s specials on produce! I know we all love a sale, but a sale on food is that much better!
Tips for scoring Manager’s Specials:
- Shop in the early part of the day. I usually only find them between 10am and 1pm.
- Go to where your store keeps these sale items first thing. (Because there are 20 little old ladies who are going to get to them first if you don’t.)
- Check the expiration dates. (If you care about that sort of thing. I like to live dangerously and will eat
- Be ready to change your weekly meal plan / shopping list. Luckily, I don’t make one very often so I just use up my sale finds asap.
I used my salad and pico de gallo for lunch! Salad with chicken, peanut dressing, cashews and veggies.
I considered putting my watermelon in a separate plate, but that’s just silly.
Dessert – I adora these
See you in a bit!
