putrid poultry

Last night, the BF and I decided we would make chicken parmigiana for dinner. We went to the grocery store to pick up everything we needed - ya know, only the essentials... chicken, cheese, spaghetti, sauce, ice cream! Unfortunately I have this bad habit of picking up everything that looks good and this time it was ice cream. Of course, the BF insisted that I shouldn't get it, but somehow it ended up in the shopping cart anyway (at least it was only Skinny Cow - low in fat and sugar, but still sooo yummy!).

When we got home, we figured it was time to make dinner. The BF took the chicken out of the bag and opened it up only to smell that disgusting bad chicken odor!

I couldn't believe it! I was so disappointed - this was now the 5th time that we've gotten bad chicken from this grocery store. After swearing a little bit and stomping around the house for a few minutes, we ended up going back to the store to return the chicken. For $11 I should have received fresh chicken! We got to the front desk and I felt so bad for the lady at the counter... she had to open the bag and smell the chicken to see if it was actually bad - and boy did she get a nice wiff of that nasty chicken! 

In the end they refunded my money, but they also lost a customer because I'm NEVER buying chicken there again! Now I'm off to try it again... hopefully with fresh chicken this time.
