Not so Ordinary Ingredients

If grocery shopping can be a guilty pleasure, Central Market fits the bill.  I've been dying to try this pretty salad from Elsie's blog, A Beautiful Mess, but I needed blood oranges.

We love visiting Central Market for those out-of-the-ordinary ingredients we need every now and then.  Erik likes to visit their old fashioned soda section.  He buys them a bottle at a time; tons of fun, old flavors.  You can get a Green River, or even Lavender flavored pop.

We can't do all our shopping here -- way to pricey, but it sure is fun to pick up a few things here and there!  I was excited to see that they had a big selection of loose teas.  Last time we visited Victoria, BC, we came home with a tea ball and loose tea selection.  It feels so much fancier when you have to pack the tea yourself, instead of just dunking your tea bag, like the Yankee you are.

Finally, we ended up back in the boxed tea section, like last week.  :)  I picked up a good selection then, but those were for work.  I was back to get a handful to keep at home.  I grabbed a few familiar flavors and a new one to try - White Peach!  Yum!
