When I travel, I love to go to the local grocery store.

The last grocery store departed my small town of Murdock, Minnesota, population, 303, many years ago, but there is a small grocery in Kerkhoven. I can remember as a child visiting my grandparents in Murdock, and my mother would just have the items added to the store credit, with a bill sent at the end of the month. There is a restaurant in Murdock, but it has not been open for years. This could be a reason to blog about food!

My family for years as stopped at the Lunds grocery store on Wayzata Boulevard in Wayzata, Minnesota, on the way to the Twin Cities. The variety of the foods from around the world is enough for me to walk around the cheese section several times, like I was in a museum. The fresh fish, including the salmon, stopped me in my tracks, with conversations with the gentlemen advising me about the varieties of fish.

If you look closely, you can see the pink smoked salmon I got at Lunds grocery in Wayzata to make my morning breakfast. Photo by Jannet Walsh, © 2012
