Yesterday I made my first visit to the newly opened Gilroy Grocery Outlet.
Like my visit the week before to the Berkeley corporate owned store, the pickings are pretty slim these days. But I did find two items to purchase there.
Creekstone Farms Premium Black Angus Beef Burgers, 6 - 1/3 lb burgers (frozen), 32 oz. for $5.99, sell by date 5/19/11
I was familiar with the brand because I'd had a branded steak from Creekstone at Cafe des Amis. Searching later, I found a grocery store circular in another state that offered this package for the same price. So $3/lb for frozen patties is a good price, but not necessarily discounted heavily. The patties are individually frozen, separated by wax paper and in a recloseable plastic bag. I cooked them according to the package instructions and like the taste a lot. This is a good thing to have handy in the freezer for the nights you don't feel like cooking something more elaborate.
Tropicana orange juice, sell by date of 5/7/11, $1.49
