Grrrrrroceries

We went and did our monthly canned grocery run. Argh! Why in the hell can't checkers put more than two to four cans in a bag? Why, if you buy four cans of stew (or whatever), must they put them all in seperate bags, when you had them clumped together for checkout? Grumble.

On the bright side, one of our local grocery stores (Albertsons) had hard frozon atlantic chum salmon fillets for only $1.99/lb (usually $5.99/lb) Big fillets, too. I'll take 2/3 off, thankyouvery much. Sale ends tomorrow.

I'm wondering if they'd be good on the grill, instead of baked.....

FYI
Salmon is excellent griled, especially if you have seome teriyaki and fire oil to toss on it.

You can grill salmon easily. We tend to have cedar planks to soak and then put the fish on it stuffed with lemon and dill. You can put them on the grill and cover. It leaves the salmon moist and tasty. :)

Mm ... that sounds tempting even to me :-)

I either tell them to use as few bags as possible (generally have to repeat the message a couple of times, loudly; checkers get into the Zen of checking and aren't listening for aberrant aural stimuli) or grab the stuff myself and bag it as fast as they can swipe it. They hate that, but I'm better at fitting my stuff in than they are. And I like to use my own bags, although in late spring/early summer we were going through half a dozen WalMart and supermarket bags a weekend cleaning up the yard.

Not only do they use a plethora of bags, but if you have ice cream, milk, hamburger, and frozen veggies, you'll end up with one of each in four different bags, even if it came down the belt with all the cold stuff clumped together. I think they do it deliberately.
