Hey Lola, my mom ordered DH a ton of their pies for Xmas this year; if you look for the store (not that name) in TX, they have a killer deal on shipping. The pies are from that same maker, and they met with extreme approval.
I never ordered for him because they shipping was like $75!

$75 shipping! Crikey, maybe the will to make my own will re-surface. I stopped baking pastry stuff because my hubby became a vegan and I had to eat all the pies (and pasties) I made. Hence my diet. Which brings me to a new problem. I have been able to buy Heinz salad creme locally for a few years now suddenly I can't find it anywhere, Is there a shortage or problem? Being a canny Yorkshire lass I hate spending more on S&H than the goods ordered.

I see you are in Washington.. have you looked in Fred Meyer? I seem to recall they're stocking salad creme now. World Market nags at the back of my mind too, but he doesn't buy it all that often & I quit paying attention because I dont' eat it.

The pie shipping from http://www.goodwoods.com/ is $19.95 flat rate and their ground shipping (non frozen) is just $6.95.

That price is much better, thanks for the heads up.
World Market, Myers and Top foods all used to stock salad creme But for the past 8 weeks or so none of the stores have had any in stock. I suppose mayo is more sophisticated although I did read in the Times 70's stuff like salad creme and Black Forest gateau are making a come-back

Oh, I don't know.. I just figured out that there is a shortage of canned corned beef (big upset in Puerto Rico) due to some recall 6 months ago.

Personally, I think Miracle Whip is a good substitute, but my palate isn't all that sophisticated.

That explains why I haven't been able to find it recently. I had to make do with corned beef hash in a can instead. Not even sure what to do with the weird stuff that Americans eat on St Patrick's day, but it ain't corned beef.

Speaking of St Pat's, Trader Joes do some fantastic pork sausages around about now for fairly cheap, those are always worth stocking up on.

Default UK Foods in brooklyn

Can anyone recommend a goos place to get curry sauces and english biscuits in brooklyn? I've been living in the area for just over four years and haven't yet found anything locally. Any pointers would be welcomed.
