What's good from Kroger's Deli and Bakery?

We're going to a seminar in Louisville, Kentucky, next week. Our usual thing when we'll stay at one place for a few days is to go to a local grocery and get food rather than spend a fortune at restaurants. I'll be in class all day every day so going out is tiring anyway.

The seminar is at the Galt House in downtown Louisville. I've located a Kroger on the way into town and want to stop to pick up some things before we get settled into the hotel. If things work out, we won't plan on leaving the Galt House for the four days I'll be at the seminar.

I know what I would get if we were staying somewhere near a Publix, but I've never shopped at a Kroger. What do they tend to have that's good?

Update on car for tall person - we bought a used Prius!

2006 Toyota Prius for a great price in really good condition.

The seat goes back just far enough for my husband to be comfortable - but I found seat extenders on the internet if he decides he wants even more leg room.

We're really happy to have a fuel efficient vehicle after years of two SUVs. I need my Suburban for hauling the horse trailer, but we really didn't need a second gas guzzler. The last two we had were bought because at the time they were the only vehicles we could find in our price range that fit my husband.

For those who are tall, the newer Prius are even better - he tried out a 2010 but it was way out of our price range so we hunted for an older model in good shape.

The Prius is definitely different from any other vehicle we've ever owned and learning it's quirks is more complicated than we expected. So far we're very happy with it.

Car shopping for a tall guy

Last Thursday my husband was t-boned in Atlanta. We're assuming his SUV is totaled - 2002 model with ~140,000 miles in average condition with all panels on both sides crunched (it rolled over on the driver's side after being hit on the passenger side), broken windows, etc. No one was hurt so that part is good.

I'm looking for suggestions for vehicles with enough leg room for a 6'1"+ guy with long legs. A good friend sells used cars and brought out a Honda CRV for us to look at. Great little SUV, but nowhere near enough leg room for my husband. Because we tend to carry a lot of stuff around I'd like a small SUV, hatchback or station wagon, but we'd settle for a sedan. He also gives rides to events to friends so we need four doors and a roomy back seat.

Anybody have any suggestions for vehicles for us to look for?
