Imagine yourself in the position I was in on Monday afternoon.
I am in Farmboy, a store somewhat akin to U.S. Whole Foods, standing in front of the discount-food rack (one of my favourite shopping spots) where they put the fruits and vegetables that didn’t sell on the weekend. Items have been repackaged into larger quantities.
I study them closely and darned if those berries didn’t look really fresh. No furry spots, no discolouration.
What would you have done? Me…well, I can’t resist the bargain, even though I know I’m going to have to use those berries up very quickly.
One of my strategies was to slightly re-cobble my very low-cal cobbler recipe and double it from 8 to 16 pieces. We’ve been eating the cobbler since Tuesday, and these are the last two pieces. Delicious!
