Lazy, Lazy, I'm half crazy....
I think I'm 'lazy' since I picked reading as where you'd find me..

Your store sounds neat, ehBeth..

I wonder if you can get pancetta there. I have gotten my knickers in a twist lately because italian pancetta (as opposed to american firms' - like Molinari, Premier Brands, Boar's Head) isn't available around here at all. I don't know how I can continue to live without it, I must find a source!!
Yes, yes, I should look on google... maybe Ferrari (or some such company name) inports it.

You are? That's too bad! (if it means the processed cheeselike food product you can buy here, again by Kraft foods)


Here's a link on Sardo dolce, a sardinian cheese I might rather be. The google translation is pretty amazing. Sorry, there seem to be a few pop ups that come with the link.

I really like raw cheese most.

So, this must have been a kind of cheap revenge Laughing

(((((( Walter )))))))
will you be all right?


then again, American cheese isn't bad cheese just because it's American cheese. Just like the Kraft label doesn't always mean a cheese is bad. I'm unlikely to go into a store looking for a Kraft cheese, but I've been pleasantly surprised with their Havarti - once I've let it age a bit.

There was a long discussion somewhere online, about a year ago, about 'american' cheese. I guess it has two meanings, as in any from the USA, and as I was using it, processed sliced gloppo (imho).

I like our local feta cheese, but also like a packaged brand called Val Breso, french, I think. It used to be available in grocery stores here but was a few dimes more than Athenos, which is the popular brand. No more Val Breso....

mmmmm

Emmentaler and pumpernickel. It's hard to get really good pumpernickel here. I've got a little stash of it, triple-wrapped, in the fridge, for special occasions.

I took the test and the results were a bit surprising. Seems I'm not a cheese at all, but rather "a rotting piece of meat, pushed around and rejected by dogs and finally coming to rest against an alley wall where maggots take up a brief, yet uncomfortable residence on your body. praying for the days of wings so they may take flight."

Hell, Walter's "American Cheese" label sounds better than that.
