1. The time of day - shopping early in the day is the way to go!
2. The other customers - because of the time of day you get a completely different crowd!
3. No hurry - we weren't in a hurry to get anywhere so we could take our time!
I guess when you go in the evening, most people (including myself) are getting done working, are cranky from that and in a hurry to get home and that always makes for a bad shopping trip. In the morning, you generally get the older crowd and, let's just face it, their pace and attitudes are usually a whole lot nicer. They're friendly - stopping to chat with the kids, (mostly) happy and don't give you attitude when your kid is blocking the aisle.
Here's to grocery shopping in the morning!
I bought pork carnitas today for the first time ever. I've had pork carnitas burritos, but I think that's it. Now I need to go find a recipe to use them in! Anyone have any good ideas - please share!!
