Today is not my day. If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen that mentioned.
See, I went to my car to run a handful of errands. Eight, actually. I had eight places I needed to go today. I’m not exactly sure if that fits into a “handful” but that’s the number of places I had on my list. I put the car in reverse and it felt … weird. So I stopped, got out, and … I had a flat tire. Lovely.
If this was any other day, it wouldn’t have been that bad. But it was today, the day that I was due to post a review of the Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers. Platefull Co-Op had sent me a coupon for a free bag. I had looked for it at Harris Teeter recently, but couldn’t find it. Green Giant, yes. Green Giant Steamers, yes. But not Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers.
I looked at Food Lion’s website and there was actually a meal deal with Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers in April so I was confident that I would find them there.
So I walked. I didn’t have a choice. I needed these for the post and a flat tire meant I couldn’t drive there. I got there … and the store doesn’t have Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers. Other Green Giant products, yes, but not the one I wanted.
Stubborness kicked in.
I decided to walk across the street to go to Piggly Wiggly. No luck. Green Giant items, yes, the one I needed, no. So I went a few stores down to Dollar General. None there either.
Walgreens was on my way home so I stopped in there too. Walgreens does have a frozen food section, but it’s filled with pizza and corn dogs. No frozen veggies.
After a two hour walking quest to find these, I couldn’t.
I’m bummed too because I really like frozen veggies. They’re a huge time saver. You just put the bag in the microwave, heat, and serve. That’s it. It’s so much easier. Driving is also a lot easier than walking everywhere too.
If I ever do find these, I’ll have to let you know how they are. Right now, I’m just convinced that they’re elusive.
Platefull Co-Op sent a coupon for these for this post. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to use it yet.
