How Cheesy

Last night before going home from work, an ad popped up on the upper portion of the screen (not a pop-up ad) and it looked like the picture below. Well, I am always interested in new ways to have cheese (since I am NOT supposed to have any) and so I went to the site. Now, I was definitely not wishing to drive all the way to Harrisburg, just to sample some cheese bits, so I looked around the site a bit and lo and behold, they were going to visit a Giant Food store near me; and that was at noon today! I went there today, and they have really decent tasting 75% less fat cheese (cheddar) and some decent Colby too. I especially liked the habanero infused cheese, and found the Jalapeno one a bit on the mild side. Then, for coming out because I saw the ad, they gave me a REALLY nice cloth shopping (or whatever) bag. It is as roomy inside as a large paper bag is. It's been a good day....so far.

What are your favorite ingredients for noodle/pasta dishes?

What are your favorite cold and hot noodle dishes? What ingredients are must-haves when you make pasta? I'm mildly obsessed with hot pasta dishes, and cold pasta salad. I'm hoping to try some new ideas. If I draft a recipe from your idea, I'll be sure to cite you as an inspiration source when I post. Some of my current faves: -feta, basil, roasted peppers -chicken, feta, cilantro, white beans, basil -goat cheese and cilantro pesto

Is your local shop ripping you-off?

I was vaguely interested in wholesale prices for shop products, and managed to find this price-list. The wholesale price is WSP, RSP I guess is the Recommended Sale Price (I think there must be tax in there somewhere), and whatever POV stands for would be the margin. If you think someone's expensive: either they've got an expensive supplier, or you don't know WSP, or they are making the most of you. (But remember, 8-'till-laters work hard to earn a living, they do need some margin) P & H price-list - as a major distributor these prices will be around the "good as one can get" mark. E.g. Haagen-Dazs 100ml £23.99 for 24x = £1 per tub        Hovis Soft 800g £1.14 ea        Cheesestrings Cheddar 21g £9.24 for 24 = £0.385 ea        "What not butter" 1Kg £18.14 for 12, £1.51 ea Or just marvel at what crap you can stock your shop with.... It's only a bit of searching, you could check your prices (different country) by searching specifically differently. (Look for who is delivering stuff) I do remember a local shop which was regarded as a rip-off to the extent some of my friends would steal stuff by way of compensation... not much though, Pot-Noodle here & there...
