So the boys and I have been livin’ large of late. Last weeks sale of now unfashionable elite food has yielded some real gems:
- 16 oz of unfiltered organic olive oil for $2.99.
- Marinated artichoke hearts for $0.99
- Calabrese bruschetta topping (red peppers, ricotta, olive oil, pecorino romano cheese) for $1.49
- Mixed Marinated Greek olives $1.49
(PS: The slice to the left are the standard pepperoni/sausage that the boys insist upon….the plebeians)
So the moral of this story is that the really good food that was the hallmark of yuppiedom is looking to go the way of the last great American whale. So, get thee hence to your local used grocery store and make hay while the sun shines. It ain’t gonna last and I guarantee you that it will be a pleasant memory.
God I will miss the food.
