whole foods: beware of (and/or embrace) local vendors.
So, when I went grocery shopping the other week, my normal grocery store had no polenta... meaning in order to make the Baked Polenta with Peperonata Sauce, I had to make a trip to Whole Foods. Whole Foods is always dangerous: hot bar, presliced delicious fruit, sushi, unique wine and beer! But this particular day, it was EXTRA dangerous. There were local vendors. Of all sorts. Promoting things THEY had MADE... for me to consume. First, I had Peggy Rose's hot pepper jelly, served on a cracker with some brie:
Paycheck Foods... how I love and hate thee all at the same time. So, friends, what have we learned? Whole Foods has delicious, local vendors, ready to sell you their amazing products. This is both awesome and terrible all at once... and if you are on a budget (like I am!) you need to beware! Good thing I only end up there about once a month! :-)
