Well fellow Pink Apron followers, I hope you didn’t have your hopes up that the guest contributor would be someone like Chef Duff or Buddy Valastro. Alas, it’s only me, Mr. Apron. While many of you know me from my hand picked favorites on this site what you may not know is that I can’t bake or cook at all. I have repeatedly screwed up things as simple as boxed brownies (2 separate batches messed up in the same night- not sure how that happened…something to do with oil) and when I have tried to cook I have managed to make the kitchen look like a mad scientists lab and taken 3 hours to make what it would take the average cook 45 minutes to complete.
So given my lack of skill in the kitchen what will I be talking about in my guest spots? We’ll have to see! Much to the chagrin of the Pink Apron, I am not much of a planner and a bit of a procrastinator so many of these posts will most likely be whatever I come up with in the moment! While I don’t bake or cook I do enjoy eating and often find myself on unexpected culinary adventures.
One adventure in the works is a trip to Wegman’s. For those of you not familiar with Wegman’s it is a best described as a grocery store. But it’s more than that. It’s like if Disney opened a grocery store. (Someone even proposed at the new Wegman's last week. It really is like Disney) The Pink Apron first discovered this wonder land when living in the Mid-Atlantic region. We would travel for miles and make it a day trip. Now a Wegman’s has opened closer to where we live now and the thought of driving 25 minutes to get there does not faze me in the least.
Our Wegman's Shopper's Club Card-I didn't wait to get this!
My favorite thing about Wegman’s is their food court. How many times have you been at a store and said to yourself- I wonder how that tastes? Well at Wegman’s you’ll know because you eat it! Pizza, subs, sushi, coffee, desserts, Chinese food buffet, soups…it’s all there! Then while wandering the different sections of the store you’ll find wine tastings set up. What wine goes with this cheese? Well let’s see shall we!
Needless to say I am very excited for our first visit. I feel like I’m going to see an old friend. And the best part- though I’ll be eating my way through the store and too full to move when we leave I know that when we’re there the Pink Apron will being stocking the cupboard which means more Mr. Apron’s favorites on the way!
