What I love about shopping at Market Street is that they are invested in the communities that they are located in. They like to know…
I keep my pantry pretty full, I think it’s the expectation that there may be a time where I just can’t get out to the store to shop. Whether that be because of weather, illness, lack of money, or yes even the chance of a zombie apocalypse <– you know because if you watch The Walking Dead you’ll notice that it’s the CANNED FOODS that get pillaged from the cupboards. I’m hedging my bets with the cans folks.
After 20 years of marriage, I know that when it comes to Valentine’s Day a couple can get a little passive about it.
We’re taking a study on marriage right now in our small group, and so it encouraged me to come up with some ideas to put on a Countdown to Valentine’s Day calendar. Nothing on it is expensive, many of the ‘hints’ I put on it are for things that are just ordinary with a loving sentiment.
It’s really easy for you to put one of these together for your spouse. All you need is a calendar, some extra paper or wrapped paper hearts and your imagination 🙂
I can’t believe Christmas is only a week away. We’re starting to wrap things up (both literally and figuratively) for the big day. Last Sunday I got together with some friends for an afternoon of crafting where we were still making Christmas decorations to brighten up our homes. Most of them have college aged children that were making their way home for Christmas, and the resounding chorus around the table was that they couldn’t wait to get home to TEXAS!
By the time November rolls around, if you’re like me, you’re wishing time would stop for a couple of hours each day so that you can get everything done. When my daughter was younger I had the best intentions to thank the people that were teaching her and keeping her safe with baked goodies…but usually it never happened. Then I told myself…it’s okay to cheat! And by cheat I mean pick up some treats at the grocery store bakery.
October. In Texas it’s when fall starts showing its colors. I don’t even know where to start when I think about all the wonderful things that I love about fall. So I think I’ll just say…FOOD. Because this is when I start using my oven again making those comfort food dishes that just fit the fall and winter season so well.
John Chapman, or you may know him as Johnny Appleseed, was born on September 26, 1774. Yes folks that’s just a week and a bit away! Whether you have pre-schoolers or grade schoolers there are fun things you can do to celebrate this day. Homeschoolers can plan a whole day around Johnny Appleseed and of course others can bring their knowledge and fun to school and celebrate before and after too!
The average cost of lattes for a week could buy you a month of breakfast choices at home. Starting today until the end of September, Market Street is featuring a special selection of breakfast items in their weekly ads, all designed to help you create a quick, easy, nutritious breakfast at home and save. Savings on cereal, biscuits and yogurt will be a part of the event, and I’ve got a couple of recipes below that you can make with the items you purchase and saved on!
We had only lived in Texas for two weeks last year when August rolled around. I was completely in awe of the Hatch Chile invasion that descends upon the state in August. Little did this Northern transplant know that is because Hatch Chiles from New Mexico are only available during a six week period in August/September.
Market Street is a grocery store that shows its pride of where it’s located by sourcing from in state producers.
In July, Market Street is highlighting their Texas Grown items – all month long they are celebrating products made or grown in Texas. This includes everything from Texas BBQ sauce, to bakery items, beer/wine, produce and more.
