I love it when I have the opportunity to meet with other Seattle Mom Bloggers. This will be my 3rd Seattle Blogger Event and it was just as much fun as the other two!  Before attending the QFC V.I.B.E. (Very Important Blogger Event)  today (October 17th) in Seattle, I was a loyal Safeway shopper. I can honestly say that I was VERY impressed with the store and the quality of the food they sold. Their employees were extremely helpful and friendly and I am excited to begin shopping at their store (with a brand new one near my home)! 

QFC's VIBE Blogger Event (16)

From left to right (Stacey, Carrie, Alexis, Kim, me, Angie, and Mona)

I learned a lot of new things from the QFC Very Important Blogger Event. For example, I had no idea that they had to open up the packages of bananas to prevent them from becoming overripe. Apparently, bananas trap a lot of heat and if the boxes aren’t opened to let the heat escape, they’ll ripen more quickly. Wow! I had no idea! I also had no idea that QFC was a division of Kroger and is associated with Ralphs (California), Smith’s (Utah), Food 4 Less, fry’s, King Soopers, City Market, Fred Meyer, Dillons, Baker’s, and Scott’s!  I was also excited to learn that QFC carries one of my favorite brands of hot chocolate – Stephen’s Hot Cocoa.

When we arrived, I grabbed a hot chocolate from Starbucks and met up my fellow mom bloggers and QFC representatives Nancy Moon-Eilers (QFC VP Merchandising and Marketing), Tammy Bottcher (QFC Sr. Director Advertising and Loyalty), and Kristin Maas (QFC Director Public Affairs).  We talked for a few minutes and then took a tour of the store.  I loved the floral department and the way it was decorated for Halloween.  We then proceeded to the bakery, where I saw the most adorable Frankenstein cake, followed by the candy section (woo hoo!), meat department, and health department.   I was extremely impressed with the meat department and the selection of meats they had.  I had never seen so many pre-marinated meats (aka Chef’s Express Selections) in a store before – it was amazing!  If you’re looking for a yummy and quick way to get a healthy meal, you definitely want to check out the meat department at QFC!

QFC's VIBE Blogger Event (8)

We then headed upstairs, where we had food awaiting us.  We were served the following items:  Pesto Pasta and Pea Salad, Caesar Salad, Chicken Dijon with Dijon Cream Sauce, Chicken Parmesan with Marinara Sauce, Chicken Florentine, Kalbi Flank Steak with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Valencia Green Beans, and Double Layer Chocolate Cake (with Raspberry Filling, Chocolate Butter Cream Frosting, Chocolate Truffle Topping, and Chocolate Roses).

 Lew talking about meats and cutting flank steak!  He was awesome!  Thanks Lew 🙂

QFC's VIBE Blogger Event (14)

Lew (meat department) demonstrated how to cut flank steak and talked about the Kalbi Flank Steak being like “candy meat.”  Let me tell you – it was GOOD!!!  The Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Valencia Green Beans went well with the flank steak.  We also had the opportunity to ask some questions to Donna Giordano – QFC President!

QFC's VIBE Blogger Event (18)

After eating and dessert, we were each given a bag of goodies from QFC!  We were given a QFC reusable tote, Kroger Mayonnaise, Kroger Peanut Butter, Kroger Cereal, Kroger Paper Towels, Taste-bud-icious Seasoning Packets, Active Lifestyle Oatmeal, Brittania Crisps, Kroger Coupon Book, and a $25 gift card for us and one to give away!

QFC's VIBE Blogger Event (21)

Plus, they had a giveaway for 3 bloggers to take home a centerpiece with them.  I was just saying earlier that I never won anything until I was introduced to blogging.  I figured I wouldn’t be one of the winners, but I was actually the first winner.  I got to take home a beautiful Fall centerpiece!  Thanks QFC!!!

As I said earlier, 1 lucky reader will win a $25 gift card (good at QFC and all other Kroger stores – listed above)!!!

  13. Charlotte Winters says:

    I’d buy something to cook for dinner. Something I haven’t had alot of lately because of penny pinching.
    Maybe a steak!

  14. adrienne Gordon says:

    some of their prepared foods.

  15. Sonya Sparks says:

    I would watch for a good sale, match it up with coupons and use the card to make the most of it.

  16. Jessica says:

    I would buy Ice Cream! We can never get enough ice cream in our house!

  17. Lanie says:

    Either fresh flowers or prepared food!

  18. Nancy says:

    I would buy Ecce Panis bread. This is all natural, no preservative, incredibly good bread and Kroger is the only store in our area that sells it. If you have never tried it, go for it!

  19. Michelle Draveski says:

    OH Baby we could use some forumal

  20. Vicky H. says:

    Well, since I would actually send the card to my “grandmother” in KY, *I* wouldn’t buy anything at all. 😛 But if we had a Kroger near us, I think we’d put it towards meats.

  28. Kris says:

    If I won the card, I actually wouldn’t use it for myself. I would give it to my sister who had a very complicated pregnancy that required her and her husband to miss a lot of work and racked up high medical bills. They have a beautiful child now so I know it was worth it, but they could use some help. As much as she and her husband have always done for my family I’m glad to help them in any way I can. Being the giving people that they are, to be honest they might turn around and “pay it forward” themselves to someone more unfortunate than themselves but I know in the end it would end up with someone who really needs it.

    Well, we’re running low on peanut butter and milk right now. Those are 2 staples that we use every single day and cannot live without. I’m actually planning on picking some up tomorrow, but I’m sure we’ll need more if I win and when the card gets here 🙂 Thanks!

    Shannon, I am a Seattle mom of a 7-year old boy and 4-year old girl, and I’m working on a video cooking series for which I’d love to contact the folks at QFC. I am having trouble finding contact info for the marketing folks you met with, because their website and contact numbers kick over to Kroger HQ in Ohio, and they don’t have a switchboard or phone numbers on file. Can you help? Thanks, Sara
