    We have the Meat Locker up the road from us. You can buy a half or whole side of beef. They will butcher and package it for you. We'd much rather go there and buy meat than the big box grocery stores all over.

    The meats at the stores are expensive and doesn't taste all that good. A lot is prefrozen (no they don't tell you that and then you get home and refreeze it). Last year I purchased a side of angus beef and to purchase that plus butchering and packaging it cost me a little under $800. I still have some left and it not only tastes better I also know where it comes from (plus organic). I get a lot of very good cuts that way and it's way cheaper than what I'd pay in the supermarket. Yeah it bites initially but it's cheaper and better in the end.
    I purchased a lamb and waiting for that to go to the butcher now. I paid $200 for the lamb and then I'll be paying another $100 for the butcher and packing. It's well worth it to me. I've always LOVED lamb. Back in the 80's I raised my own lamb and also raised a veal calf once a year. Oh I miss those days!

If you see ingredients you don't want in your foods, just don't buy them. Most of my cooking is "from scratch". Convenience foods are full of salt and fat...which is the main reason I don't buy them. In 30 minutes I can have a "from scratch" meal fixed...meat, potatoes, vegetable, & salad. It really isn't that hard and tastes a lot better than the prepackaged frozen meals. But it does take some effort to do it.
    I would sure love some recipes! I struggle with cooking meat! I can cook a mean steak but who can afford that regularly! LOL!

    I did not know this but I stopped using the "fake" stuff a long time ago. I LOVE fresh grated paremsan and asiago cheeses! Asiago does not last as long as parm so I don't use it quite as often. I usually spend the 20 bucks or so to get a large brick which lasts me quite a while.

    I am constantly infuriated at the garbage that goes into and onto our food. And then we wonder why the rates of cancer are so high. There is no honesty or integrity in food labeling anymore and you are totally at their mercy. Even when you THINK you know what you're getting, you often don't because it's hidden in language that makes no sense. All designed to deceive. I think all food should be grown, manufactured and regulated by government bodies made up of citizens in a not-for-profit way....Owned by the people. What an idealist eh? LOL!

    Wow, did not know about the Parm, THANKS! I really dislike to food shop, now I think I have to take a chair with me and read every label of the food I put in the cart. I try to purchase anti biotic free and hormone free foods, Now I have to worry about "sawdust " in my food. Good Grief.

    What ever happened to the truth in labeling law? Why can't food companies just be honest about everything in the pkg and let us decide!!!!##!

    the powder is there so it doesnt stick together, its also on packaged salads for the same reason. people that have celiac disease really have to watch out for it.

    I wouldn't really have a problem eating a filler if I know what it is, but lots of time the fillers are cotton seed or wood pulp that are not grown for human consumption. What kinds of herbicides and insecticides are used on that plant before it is put in the food? I wonder if anyone checks for that in the industry.
    The US has some pretty lax rules as far as what can be called GRAS. In Britain, the rules are much more strict. Take Kraft Mac and Cheese. The US version is recently "Now without artificial dyes and flavors!" Woopee, in England it has always been that way. Manufacturers in the US just take advantage of the comfortable arrangement between the 'powers that be' in Washington, and lobbyists in the food industry. They only change when public opinion forces them.
    Oops, don't get me started......

    Don't freeze cottage cheese or sour cream either!

    We switched from Parmesan to Asiago cheese three years ago. It not only tastes delicious, it smalls delicious. A little goes a long way and it keeps very well in the refrigerator. If you have an Aldi grocery store check them out. Low prices and high quality (although the selection is limited.)

    This is the reason I get the hex sign from family if I even glance sideways at a pre shredded bag of cheese. My son is the house cheese grater

It's different and a real treat! Sorry to hear real Parmesano Reggiano is hard to come by on your island. Guess I am spoiled with several sources for imported Italian groceries.
    That sounds good.I have ricotta on my list right now. I want to make some lasagna roll ups. A little lighter than the pan version.

    They add that stuff so the cheese doesn't stick together in the bag. Put your block in the freezer for a bit and it will be easier to grate. Also hard cheeses like cheddar can be put in the freezer. Don't put cream cheese. I tried that already. Yuck lol
