How about all the different types of frozen pizza available? Our grocery store has a separate freezer section now for Detroit style, Milwaukee style, Montreal pizza and St. Louis Pizza. This is in addition to the large section of Chicago style pizza, which is, of course, the only frozen pizza that is worth buying.

Making sweet and sour soup for the first time, we picked up a package of dried tree ear mushrooms and one of dried lily buds at one the Chinese markets. Both are new to us. I really wish these markets had some employees that spoke English, there are so many things we would like to try.

A nice bonus is that thighs are much cheaper due to the hyping of the breast meat.
For me, that's why I prefer the breasts. I find the dark meat to be too greasy tasting for me. It's not due to some diet I'm on either. Been that way since I was a kid; even then I couldn't stand the taste of dark meat for all the grease in it.


Now to the OP question. Something not new to me but new to my wife is Pickapeppa sauce. Got her to try some this week and she liked it.

I just saw those on clearance at our walmart, I wondered if they were any good. I don't eat a lot of meat so I took a pass, but I was intrigued.
Duck
Lamb
Za'atar
Ponzu
Korean Rice Cakes
Black Garlic
Piri Piri

And Kroger has come out with a new line of artisan pizza that I just had to try because of the unusual flavor combos: French goat cheese and plum marmalade with marinated vegetables, Five cheese with marmalade, grilled mushroom and truffle oil, and a cuban style with a hint of mustard. Definitely different than the usual pizza!

A pre made meal kit from the grocery, the usual price was 18.00 but it was marked down to 9.00. A Vietnamese stir fry dish, it had all the pre chopped meat, veggies, cooked rice and seasoning like chopped lemongrass, chilies and garlic. It was good, simple to put together and someone else did all the chopping and slicing! Iíd buy again.

Nope, only enough to be able to check people out. We had to find Gochugaru on our own which is an easy one. We've even tried showing them pictures of packages with no luck.

Jackfruit. Very versatile, delicious, and nutritionally dense.

But would you buy it at full price?
