Lamb ribs, smoked pork spare ribs, and breast of veal. Also, a butcher shop where I could get real Polish Kielbasa. A Kosher delicatessen where I could buy good chopped liver.

So far, very interesting,

I offered my daughter a recipe for coctail sauce and i would not buy it. Actually, I like your recipie a lot. Anyway, her family is so straight laced that when they have cranberry sauce, it must be in the shape of the can or the kids won't eat it.

Veal...is hard to find at the real "store" but I can get it at the butchers.
For awhile for reasons that no one could understand our safeway stopped stocking chip dip! It's back now because so many of us asked for it. Real Greek yogart.

How about American Gulf Shrimp.....fresh! I found only one fishery in the next county that sells head-on jumbo shrimp.

Wow.

do I feel lucky at this point.

I cant think of a single thing that I wish I was able to get on a often basis.

So far 1 thing I was looking for was sausage casings but I knew where to get it and took a road trip with a freind to Cabelas in PA not to far from my hosue out there and now im looking for Rennet locally but I think i know where I can get it since I know of a supermarket that makes there mutz fresh daily.

Not sure where you live in NM, but when I lived in Clovis & Portales (1972-73), we used to steal the peanuts from the field when they turned them over ready for harvest. We'd take them home and either boil or roast the. Peanuts are all over the Eastern part of the state.

Goya products are finally easier to find where I live. I use to bring them home from S. Fla. They are wonderful!
