I'm of course, talking about the new Whole Foods in Cupertino. I think my jaw dropped to the floor when I pulled up to the new digs.

It's HUGE! And walking in is just... wow... it still has a great fish and meat section as well as exotic cheezes. I picked up another lovely blue cheese and a baked brie. It's brie cheese wrapped in a pastry which you literally bake in the oven and then slice and enjoy. Oh man I can't wait to try that baby out... :-9

Some of the new sections (or at least greatly expanded in my view) is the new pastry section. It's HUGE! It has some great pastries, chocolates and deserts. I cannot believe I spent $12 on two bars of imported chocolate. X-9 I got a Red Fire Bar that blends Mexican ancho chipolite chilies and dark chocolate (55% cacao) and wait for it... Mo's Bacon Bar! That's right, applewood smoked bacon, alder wood smoked salt and dark milk chocolate (41% cacao). Oh yes, two of the finest things in food, chocolate and bacon. X-D I'm sure it will be GLORIOUS! But I'm too full from dinner.

Speaking of which, dinner consisted of...Collapse )

So the funny thing is, shopping there really makes me want to cook more, even though I get discounted food at work...

Anyway, the menu for the rest of the week.
  • Mapo Tofu and Tuna Sashimi - Made extra for lunch tomorrow.
  • Meat Loaf
  • Carmalized Figs - Need to go to the hardware store and buy a blow torch and the corresponding fire extinguisher
  • Finish off the left over vegetable curry
  • Beef Jerky - Which I haven't made in a long time.
  • Macadamia nut brittle - If I can find a nice sturdy stock pot to buy
  • Chocolate Bacon Ice Cream - Using that Mo's Bacon Bar -- Oh yes baby! X-)
Ok yah, that's a bit ambitious, we'll see how much of that is actually made. LOL

Man I love Whole Foods. X-)

Huh, I don't have to fit into any form fitting costumes for the next few months right...? <checks> AWESOME! :D
