      I made some fresh maple breakfast sausage out of some Pork butts and shoulder. I made a Egg Mc MeFun........Fresh country sausage, fresh eggs from our hens ( we also got 22 little Buff Orpington Babies hatched last Sunday) Homemade granola with Greek Yogurt.........pnwc

        Our Aldis are Trader Joe's but they're not the same.
         
        I want a local Aldi.

          Yes you do!

          Many of the items are identical (even better) than Trader Joe's at beyond bargain prices. I read somewhere recently that Aldi is coming to SoCal!

            Here you go. Always remember to carry a quarter when shopping at Aldi's...

              Macarons!

              The Macarons of the day were from Chantal Guillon...

              A San Francisco treat!









              I stared at the box for so long...the lemon one cracked under intense pressure....

                Breakfast this morning was a sausage, egg and cheese sandwich on wheat, followed by an hour of physical therapy.

                  Those are neat chickens. I trust that Lil Porkchop wasn't responsible for that sausage. Because if he was I guarantee that lleechef will be there in a flash to beat you with a cat o' nine tails.

                    Michael, Pork Chop is out in the pasture with our new Calf, they sleep together. The other day Pork Chop did something to the Calf, Pork chop started running with the Calf chasing hi around the pasture. I will get an up dated picture so Lisa sees that Pork Chop is doing fine. If Pork Chop ever went by the way of the frying pan, Lisa would be the last one to know. I know I can't say I sent him to the farm to have  a good life, he already lives on a farm..............New Pictures coming soon.......................Happy to see your doing good Michael...................pnwc

                      Nice breakfast food from ALDI's, CC!  Which macaron was your favorite?  Can't be the lemon, if it was a wuss.
                       
                      Breakfast this morning was an airport Auntie Anne's pretzel with melted butter slathered on it.  It's a guilty pleasure.  And yes, I'm a heathen.

                        I gave lemon a big SNAP OUTTA IT! lecture from Fresno to somewhere (I forget where...but I saw lots and lots of almond trees) and it held together!

                        They were all so wonderful & packed with flavor! Gun to my head I'd be smart to vote for Italian Pistachio!

                        Wait until you find out the quirky kooky fun dessert adventure I discovered for the next SF marathon! You're gonna love it!

                        I love Auntie Anne's pretzels! But...bad is my calling.

                          MACARONS!
                           
                          I saw the at Farmer's Market last week but I refused to pay $2 each for them.  I need many!

                            Was it the Farmer's Market near Du-Par's?

                            I didn't register with me that it was so close to Canter's until I was passing and when I was driving by I cursed a little streak for missing it ...and I hit the horn by mistake!

                            My niece was like tsk tsk tsk...about the horn. This is NOT New Jersey!

                              Ohhh yeah--you can't do that here, CC, unless someone's about to kill you with their car, and then it's almost too late.  I had a lot to unlearn when I moved out here.
                               
                              I'm all for a kooky quirky dessert adventure!  We should check out some donuts next time, too.
                               
                              Mar - the salted caramel macaron at Chantal Guillon is worth whatever they charge for it, imho.  Now I'm going to need to try the pistachio.  Great breakfast candidates--egg whites!!!

                                I didn't even think of the egg white & Breakfast connection!

                                They are worth every penny!


                                My Mom loved the salted caramel. When I took out the box she said McMacarons! Nooooo! Not McMacarons!

                                She had her share of McMacarons at conventions where all of the worldwide McProducts are available in unlimited supply.

                                McMacarons are supplied by Groupe Holder - the parent company of...

                                  McMacarons with a senior McCoffee?  I'd be there!
                                   
                                  Yes... Farmer's Market at Third and Fairfax.  Home to one of the Du-Pars.

                                    I saw a woman mugging Mickey Mouse right on Hollywood Blvd!



                                    I'm not allowed to hit the horn. Sorry Mickey. Carry pepper spray.

                                          Hooray for donuts!

                                          I don't think I even noticed there was a donut kiosk (from a Donut Farm! in Oakland) at the Ferry Building. I read somewhere they offer a blood orange donut that looked really nice.

                                          I was so occupied with the delicious blood orange olive oil & balsamic vinegar samples during that time.

                                              Mmmmmmm--I've heard of Pepples donuts!  I didn't see a kiosk, either--so much going on in that building.

                                                These are the things I see at red lights!

                                                  Boy, am I confused! Where I live, Aldi is a discount grocery store where you have to bring your own bags, and virtually no brand in it is anything you've ever heard of in your life. It's hit or miss on quality, but the prices are even better than Save A Lot.

                                                      I want to go once.
                                                       
                                                      Sounds like Fresh n Easy which I hear is closing.

                                                        I concentrate on & stock-up in the wonderful candy & snack dept.

                                                        I was listening to a radio show with the featured topic of the disasterous business decisions made by Fresh & Easy in Cali...a few weeks ago.

                                                            So we *are* talking about the same store? Huh. Fresh & Easy doesn't sound like Aldi at all...Aldi doesn't have its own labels, they're more like a Grocery Outlet, where they get products from wherever is getting rid of them and sell them nationwide. On rare occasions they'll have a national brand, but the vast majority of their stuff is kind of like a brand you've heard of, with kind of similar packaging. Like shopping at the dollar store.
