Grandma’s First Trip to Whole Foods Market

I think it goes without saying that the topic of, “What shall we do for lunch?” came up more than once while Grandma

and I watched Samaria’s 12 pm soccer game on Saturday.

Immediately after the game, we experienced the joy of introducing Grandma to Whole Foods Market!

As we slowly perused to store, tasting samples at every turn

and then announced, “Everyone choose what they’d like for lunch,”

Grandma, like so many of us that went before her, became an instant WFM fan.

I made a beeline to the Sushi Bar

where Nan came out to visit,

and point out the favorites of her creations.  A delight in and of itself.

Anwar made his selection from the hot bar,

and eventually… after some typical Allen Family absurdities… IMG_4703

and my stop at the soup bar (where else can one pair world class sushi AND vegetarian chili if they so wish?),

we sat down and enjoyed our Family Lunch.

“Reminds me of Scotland,” said my Scottish grandma.

In other words, “It reminds me of home.”

The highest praise, indeed.
