I was recently contacted by the folks at Grocery Outlet to see if I’d be game to write a series of posts on their Bargainista Blog. Well, if you know me I love a few things: writing, Grocery Outlet, and having a good time. This opportunity met all those qualifications, so I agreed!
Even better, they let me choose the topic. To a writer, free creative reign is TOTAL AWESOMESAUCE.
After doing some brainstorming, I came up with the perfect idea. See you never really know what you’re going to find at Grocery Outlet. It might be a Bob Marley-themed drink for $0.50 or a European cake doused with amaretto. That’s what makes shopping there so fun and unexpected. So I decided to draw on the “treasure hunting” aspect of shopping at Grocery Outlet to solve a problem many of us regularly have: getting stuck in a dinner rut.
Each month for the next several months, I’ll be sharing how I used one fun item I found at Grocery Outlet to create a different recipe to get you out of your rut.
I’m pleased to share with you the first of my posts. The featured ingredient? Pasilla peppers. Head on over to Grocery Outlet to see how I turned them into a beautiful, nutritious meal for just $6.56.
What do you think of my idea? And, have you spotted any unusual items you think I should feature for an upcoming post at the Bargainista Blog?
