Roast Chicken

I almost always buy the store brand frozen veggies but Mrs J made a run to Kroger today without me and bought name brand corn, peas, and mixed veggies.  The difference was notable – the name brand just looked better  I had red wine vinegar on the store list, Mrs J bought some and then bought some red cooking wine as well.  Not sure why.  Anyway, the clerk carded her at checkout for the cooking wine.  Is that a thing?
