To me, there is no worse day at Harris Teeter than Triple Coupon Day. I inevitably get stuck behind someone who has a giant handful of coupons, cheers at the end of the long and tedious checkout and on top of it all pays by writing a check. I would say that I don’t have time to clip coupons but really I have no patience for the process. I’d rather be doing a million other things on a Sunday morning including watching infomercials and made-for-tv movies.
This brings us to the Super G Mart where everyday is Triple Coupon Day without the Coupons! Yesterday I was in need of a new bottle of fish sauce and thought a trip to the Super G was a great field trip for a rainy Sunday. I found limes 5 for a dollar, a variety of peppers and onions, Cafe Du Monde for less than $5 (it’s over $10 at Earth Fare), the spicy ramen I’ve been searching for (stay tuned for an upcoming Spicy Ramen test kitchen), dried shiitake mushrooms for under $2 and my fish sauce all for around $15! I don’t recommend the Super G for all your regular grocery shopping but it is a great place to find new ingredients and things you can’t find on the international aisle at Harris Teeter. During the next couple weeks, I’ll be posting some recipes with some more unusual ingredients like fish sauce and red curry paste. If you are interested in making these recipes I highly recommend a trip!
