Our Tosa store is my neighborhood store, and I love it. I feel like I’m always running into someone familiar there. In October, 2013, the store completed a remodel that included expanded bakery and deli departments, a salad bar, more hand-selected produce and much more. If you haven’t seen it yet, come check it out tomorrow!
If you haven’t noticed from my past blogs, I love all things vegetable. My favorite is being creative with my veggies (such as making kohlrabi fries or zucchini chips) or using them as a meat replacement in my meals (think zucchini lasagna and portabella sandwiches).
Our ad this week features colossal heirloom artichokes, which got me to thinking… for how much I love and cook with vegetables, I’ve never cooked with a fresh artichoke. My past experience with artichokes typically included eating them on pizzas or salads or, of course, in spinach artichoke dip. But more often, I’m buying the artichokes already cooked. So I decided to change that last night.
My fiance is a teacher and coach so I know all about school fundraisers whether I’m volunteering at a school carnival or purchasing pies, pasta or gift cards.
So that’s why I’m excited to be telling you about our Sendik’s Gives Back program. It’s an easy way to earn money for your school.
For those of you that shop at our Grafton store, you know that the store has been going through a remodel. I’m happy to say that the remodel is now complete, and we’re celebrating tomorrow, March 8th! Our Grafton Community Celebration will feature in-store specials, music, kid friendly entertainment, cake and more!
For the second week in a row, we’re offering one-pound packages of strawberries for 99¢. They are sweet and juicy and the best pick-me-up during this never-ending winter! I asked our produce team how we got such a sweet deal. I learned that the strawberries hail from Florida, and the state is nearing the end of their amazingly successful strawberry season. No complaints here!
I’ve definitely stocked up on my fair share of strawberries over the past week, and I’m continuing to enjoy using them in my meals and as a snack. Here are some of the ways that I’ve been enjoying the strawberries:
Country of Origin: Ireland
Variety: 2-Year Cheddar
Milk: Cow’s Milk
Flavor Profile: Distinct creamy taste and a firm, smooth body
Oscar Wilde Two-Year Irish Cheddar is produced in County Cork, Ireland’s dairy heartland. It’s made from multi-generational family farms where cows are pasture fed 312 days of the year, including the months of milk production. Each block is carefully selected and hand-graded. You’ll find this cheese has a distinct creamy taste and a firm, smooth body. It pairs well with bold California Cabs or a dark oatmeal stout and also tastes heavenly when served on omelets or shredded over apple pie.
“The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.” Oscar Wilde
Now only $9.99 / lb
The 2-Day Seafood Sale is finally here! Since I don’t include a lot of meat in my daily diet, seafood is my primary source of protein, and I’m always looking for deals! We recently moved, and our freezer is pretty empty, so this 2-Day Seafood Sale couldn’t have come at a better time for me to stock up.
As many of you know, we recently ran a $5K Grocery Giveaway Promotion through Facebook with our friends at Fox 6 Milwaukee. For three weeks, we picked a daily winner for a $50 Sendik’s gift card, and on the last day of the contest, one person was selected as the grand prize winner to receive $5,000 to Sendik’s.
From restaurants to breweries to even Girl Scout cookies, the gluten-free craze is everywhere. Eating gluten-free has became a lifestyle for so many people– whether it’s because they have a gluten allergy or for dietary reasons & health benefits.
Yesterday, I went to our Mequon store where Ted Balistreri presented John Cary, Executive Director of the MACC Fund, with a check for $122,100. Yes, that’s right– a check for over $100,000. I was amazed by that amount and thought you might enjoy learning more about the MACC Fund and how that money was raised.
