We stopped at a Dillon's Supermarket on our way home yesterday. While it really hasn't been that long since we moved out of the country, I was still a little floored at everything you could buy there. We hit their cheese section for some Irish Dark Beer Cheese and some Idiazabal, bought Kettle chips, Coke in glass bottles, baby food, chocolate milk for Sky and some wrapping paper. D asked me before we checked out if I wanted anything else and I couldn't think of a single thing. I don't miss the big-ness, the 10-of-everything-ness of stores like this but it was wonderful to be someplace where you could find pretty much everything you were looking for. If you want a certain lotion, it'll be on the shelf. If you run out of formula, they'll have your brand in three different sizes. I've gotten used to not having that kind of availability but boy, do I miss it!
Look at all that baby food!
All the oils available on Kwaj would fit on one of these shelves
Now that's a produce section!
Sky says, "Hmm. What should I pick?"
it is lovely to have lots of choice but sometimes totally overwhelming. i tend to stick to smaller shops/supermarkets as massive super stores just feel too big and noisy for me! #ShineReplyDelete
There have been so many times when I wished I could just run out to the store for something and count on it being there. Or that I could buy soap at the same place I buy my groceries! But at the same time, I don't miss having to make all those choices every week and price shopping. Plus, we've become a lot more inventitive with our cooking here, which is a nice surprise.Delete
Thanks for stopping by!
