This morning I had to go shopping. There were 4 priorities:
1) I need meat for today's meal (trying Whole Foods first)
2) Mom asked me to find something for her
3) Tony's Seafood (because you will love it!)
4) Scallen's Meats (because I need to take a picture of those turkey necks)
First, we stop by Whole Foods. I'm looking for a particular type of meat. They don't have it. Guess it's not high-brow enough for them.
But, since we're there anyway, we can always pick up a few things.
First, I run into strawberries. Notice the farm name on the package? Yes, that is the farm we visited earlier this week.
Well, we don't need them today.
Next, I just had to take a picture of the parmigiano reggiano. Growing up, I NEVER had this -- didn't even know it existed. The only parmesan cheese I had was in a little packet tucked in Kraft's spaghetti-making kit.
Truly! That's what Mom used (and still uses) to make spaghetti. When I firsted tasted *real* parmesan cheese, I was ectastic! "So, this is what this cheese is supposed to taste like!" We don't need it today, but that's the only parmesan cheese I use, and just the sight of it makes my taste buds tingle.
Then, there's the bread. It's all good, but what I typically buy (today included) is the seeduction bread. It's fantastic! Just cut a thick slice and spread a little butter on it, and it's all you need for breakfast.
The cheese case is right next door. I don't know a lot about cheeses, so I just usually pick up a few from the small case to sample. When it's great, that's a good thing. When it's not, I only bought a small sample, so it doesn't matter.
Oh, and I left without breakfast, so I had to go ahead and have a taste of the bread.
They have a great olive bar!
And here's what I got (will graze for lunch on bread, cheese and olives)...
