So I've never been to Whole Foods before. But Michelle and others in the blogosphere keep raving about it. I wanted to pick up some salmon and chicken (sans soy) and I figured Whole Foods would be the place to go. Right?
Well I found some salmon that looked good, so I picked that up. Went over to look at the chicken.
Massive and total FAIL! Sure their chicken didn't have any hormones in it, but it was barn raised and vegetarian fed, which meant it was fed SOY! Bad Whole Foods! BAD! I couldn't find any pasture fed chickens. Grrrr! Come to think of it . . . I'm not sure where I could find pasture fed/free range chickens here . . . I guess I'll have to wait until the farmer's market comes out.
Poor Whole Foods never had a chance to make a good impression on me though. I pulled into the shopping center and swore I'd been transported to Tysons Corner in Northern Virgina. (See above warning.) For those who aren't familiar with Northern Virgina (NoVA), Tysons Corner is a major shopping destination. It's also a MASSIVE fustercluck! (Okay so I've not been up there in several years but I can't imagine it's improved!)
Short Pump (insert joke here) is like a mini NoVA. It's trying really really hard to be like Northern Virginia. It's getting there. It's got the horrific traffic and the uber expensive stores. When I walked into NoVA it was full of rich, perfect people wandering around doing their wine tasting (Wine tasting? In a grocery store? Huh??) and talking with their other rich, perfect friends. Ugh!
Disclaimer: I should never go to the West End after work. I'm crabby after work and bound to hate EVERYONE!
So now you know the real b*tch that I can be. (Not saying I am a b*tch. Well maybe. I definitely have those tendencies!)
After Whole Foods I went to
I'm off to DC tomorrow to get out of town with my Italian and meeting with a bunch of DC/MD bloggers! I'm so excited! I'm just hoping they don't hate me after reading this post! HA!!
