Quickie

Just got back from Cermak Produce as recommended by Kim!  Very cool place.  You were right, Kim, it's got a better selection than Stanley's.  There was so much stuff that I had never even heard of, let alone seen in a grocery store.




(By the way I have no idea how to format pictures on this thing.  Imagine that these pictures are all next to each other.  Nice, huh?  Thanks for throwing me a bone there).

So it had a good selection, was dirt cheap and the produce seems a lot heartier than Stanley's.  That's a winner in my book!  I got all of this for about $14.


I bought grapes to try the frozen grape trick suggested by Kate and I also went to Costco and got some blueberries to try the whole pour-milk-on-blueberries thing.  I'll report on my scientific findings very soon.

Okay, in other news, do you guys eat Flat Out Wraps?  They're like tortillas but have healthy stuff in them and are only 100 calories.  They're delicious!  I can't control myself around bread sometimes but these are just enough to be a little breadish without sending me into a feeding frenzy.  You can make pizza with them and quesadillas too.  Today for lunch I made this sandwich:

(Dear Taryn, quit with the food photography.  You stink at it.  Sincerely, the world)

Turkey, peppers, zucchini and onions that I roasted in the oven the other night and a little mozzarella cheese.  Yes, I need cheese on sandwiches.  I am from the Midwest, after all.  I think there's a law about how much cheese must be consumed per person per year.  Anyway, it was very good.  I even dragged Cooper into the bathroom with me so he couldn't eat it when I left the room.  That's a two thumbs up review for sure.

  1. w00t! Glad it was a good trip. I'm not so adventurous as to get stuff that I'm not sure what it is, but for everyday stuff, I haven't found anything cheaper around. I like spicy food, and I also really like their selection of peppers - Jewel and the like tend to only have jalapenos and habaneros. I like more variety than that.

    And if you like it, they make their own guac and pico de gallo that are pretty freaking good.

  2. Ohhh, I should try some new and exciting peppers! If I ever decide to eat chili or soup again (I can't even think about it after not being able to eat solid food for 8 weeks last year) I will give it a try!

    Thanks again for the recommendation. Very cool store.
