Um, Kroger... Can I ask what you were thinking?

Like many people who have a Kroger loyalty card I got my 'exclusive coupon' booklet in the mail this week. Maybe you already looked through yours. It took me a few days to get to mine. It's been that kind of week. Personally, I actually like the articles and I noticed the "Take Steps to Shape History - Black History Month" logo on the front and I read the article on school lunches because this is a BIG deal for me.

Then I got to the coupons and -- I kid you not -- the first coupon is for Aunt Jemima frozen waffles or french toast.

Now, personally I love waffles and french toast. I eat them whenever I can but I make them for myself or someone else makes them for me, in the case of french toast because I've never figured out how to keep the structural integrity of the bread and still get enough eggy flavor.

But this is a secondary issue. The theme on the front is "Black History Month" and the lead coupon is Aunt Jemima. Really? I'm just going to stop here because I don't think there's anything more to say. Let's just reflect on this anachronism and move on to our own personal celebration of Black History Month.

And if you have a tried and true french toast recipe, please feel free to send it to me.

It is a coupon for goodness sake!! Either take the deal and be happy or throw it away! Do we have to make an issue out of every little thing?
