Skip the lines with the SKIP checkout app! Download it today at the Play Store or the App Store. SKIP checkout is available at all Macey’s locations.
Just walk out When you’re done with your shopping, you don’t have to wait for a clerk to tell you you can leave. Just finalize payment in the app and be on your way.
Surprise! No surprises. Skip tells you your total while you shop. So you’ll never have to ballpark it in your head and then dump a few items when you get to checkout and find out you’re $100 over budget. Not that you’ve ever done that.
No more clipping With Skip, coupons are built-in and pop up whenever you can use them. So leave your baseball card binder at home where it belongs: with the baseball cards you totally still have even though they’re completely obsolete.
Wander no more Ever wander around the store for an hour looking for pickling spice because your significant other can’t cook dinner without it and you’re working on being more helpful? Yeah, neither have we. But we thought it might be hypothetically easier to just type it into an app than to ruin dinner and shake an already hypothetically strained hypothetical relationship.
Try this fresh approach to BBQ with fresh and delicious zucchini. Add a little quinoa, basil, roasted red pepper and cheese for a veggie BBQ meal.
5 zucchini squash, divided in half and seeds scooped out
3/4 cup quinoa
1/2 cup chopped roasted red pepper
1/4 cup yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup basil, minced
1/4 cup mozzarella, shredded
1 tbs. olive oil
In a large sauce pan, heat oil over medium high heat. Add onion and cook until translucent. Add quinoa and toast until lightly browned. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Add 1 1/2 cups of water to mixture and cover the pot until the water starts to boil. Remove to lid and let simmer over medium heat until the quinoa has absorbed all of the liquid (about 20 minutes). Separate with a fork and add mozzarella and basil.
Heat the grill over medium heat. Add zucchini open-side down and grill for 5 minutes until a nice char forms and zucchini is heated through.
Remove zucchini and stuff with quinoa mixture. Enjoy
