That one's actually brie, (didn't find out until peeling the sticker back), but they still have both the brie and camembert on for $5, so I might go back and get one. It's pretty good.

Interesting, I didn't think that Brie was sold in whole boxed wheels like Camembert, nor that Brie was produced in Normandy. Still delicious though, especially when properly ripe

Hmm, might not still be on sale, (forgot it's Friday so a new flyer) but no matter. I like the President's Choice brie but this one is definitely better.

It also really benefits from being allowed to come up to pantry temperature rather than straight out of the fridge. Oh, I'm drooling, I think I'll have to pick up a Brie/Camembert tonight...

We're heading over to your part of the world early next week for a few weeks holiday. The Uk grocery shopping experience and consumption of cheesy comestibles is very much on our vacation to do list! :-)

Enjoy!! If you fancy a trip for something a bit different in Norfolk I can recommend the St. George's Distillery tour - the first whisky distillery in England. Really good tour, nice shop and and a lovely cafe.

Interesting. Might do that. Trouble is the Mrs broke her arm a few weeks ago so I am designated driver for the whole trip. But a bottle to take away works :-)
Doubtless will be near your backyard at some point as the kids love Bressingham so thats on the to do list.

If you're in the western provinces [edit: or Ontario!] and bought some oysters recently, you might want to check where they came from. Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning has affected a small number of suppliers from a known harvest area.

You should NEVER put a Camembert in a fridge. Bloody sacrilege.

Oh fah fah fah, that's the story that's been passed down among Novocastrians and the French because they didn't have fridges; they probably advocate putting it in the root cellar, which is the best they could do. In the store they keep it in the cool room or on the chilled shelves for a reason.

Two or three weeks ago, Superstore was selling Pacific Pink Salmon fillets (pack of two) for $18 for two packs. Very good deal to be able to feed three for $9.
The offer was repeated the week after.

Last week they had them $7.99 a pack without having to buy two packs.

This week $6.99

I can't believe how expensive asparagus is. It's one of the few vegetables I like but it's so expensive, oddly Safeway was a bit cheaper then Super Store at $4.98/lb vs $5.98/lb but either price is a little too steep so I skipped buy it.

I buy when it's $2.99 or less.
It was $6.99 in Sobeys the other day. That's where it stayed.

Of course, if you want to impress your date by cooking a meal then the cost of it doesn't matter.
