I nearly fainted on the spot when I spied these fancy cupcakes! Last night, Rich and I ventured to the grand opening of the new grocery store in our neighborhood.
We first ate dinner in their little restaurant. I had a cheese plate and a salad (the salad was just $2!) It was a wonderful little dinner.
We weren't prepared for a full grocery shopping trip so after dinner we just poked around each section of the store. They had wonderful things at every turn. Exquisite and interesting flowers in the floral section. Fun and interesting selection in the produce section...including the tiniest lady apples (I bought a few to try!) There was a seafood station serving fresh seafood. Actually, there were stations set up in nearly every section, all set up to serve meals. It really could make grocery shopping more like an adventure. I'm loving it.
I can tell that they are taking quite a bit of inspiration from Wegman's. I think all of the grocery stores in the area are stepping up their game since they moved in the neighborhood. It's nice to see. Even the lousy Food Lion around the corner is completely renovating, reinventing, and even renaming itself.
After I finish penning this post, I am going to make a cup of tea, start a fire in the fireplace, and enjoy one of those wonderful cupcakes. And then I'll probably be buzzing around on a sugar high for the remainder of the afternoon. I have a few things to add to the site so maybe that's how I'll spend that burst of energy.
I can't wait to go back to the new grocery store to do some real grocery shopping. I think I'll go around lunchtime and treat myself to some delicious little treat. Maybe that Swedish potato and cheese creation that they will make for you at the cheese station. Or maybe a crabcake from the seafood station.
