Starting out with 2 varieties of soup, served in a small plastic cup, one went through the line sampling candied sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, roasted butternut squash, turkey in a delicious gravy served with cranberry sauce, savory sausage stuffing and a choice of blueberry or apple pie for dessert. Jennifer was on hand should anyone have any comments or would like assistance with their holiday order.
Of course a visit to the sampling tables required a visit into the store where pumpkin pie was on sale for $7.99, a most delectable baked pie with a crust to match. There was pumpkin soup in the fresh made soup department, an area where I have yet to have had a store bought soup taste. My latest venture the other day was bean and escarole soup. The second day, I added some ham bits that I had in the freezer which made it another delight.
A stop at the fresh fish department yielded a special on 16 – 20 count shrimp. After many years of making ten pounds of shrimp for my family at Christmas time, I have found that Fairway’s shrimp surpasses any of the others that I have purchased from different venues over the years. Looking to find their housewares area, I asked Lori, a special red vested guide for people with questions, for its location. Lori, seeing my bewilderment, escorted me to the area.
Wandering through the store, it was all I could do from getting foodstuffs that I craved. Living alone, one has to remember that the freezer can only hold so much!
