It was a lot of fun!!! We stopped at an Indian food store and Costco on the way back to TL's. I got to stock up on curry leaves (and now I know what that distinct smell reminds me of--gasoline), some paneer, turmeric root!, and some goodies at Costco. It was worth the 1.5 hr drive. I could be convinced to do it again! When's the next luncheon, TL?

Cheese Danish

Danes don't put cheese in their wienerbrød. We had the regular, yummy, Danish kind, imported from a Danish bakery Toronto.

Yes, we had loads of fun. The Indian store had us in fits of giggles. We found "zukini", "guva", and "lachis". I Googled the "guva" - no such thing, but they sure looked like guavas. The "lachis" were lychees. Make a wild guess what the "zukini" was. We found a lot of strange and interesting stuff. I also picked up a 10 lb bag of brown basmati rice.

Cheese Danish, a lovely blend of cream cheese, sour cream, powdered sugar and a bit of sour cream to thin a bit and lemon juice. plopped in the middle and bake...YUM!

Glad you and CWS had a good time. It's fun going shopping together!

They sell all sorts of stuff at Costco, but in big containers or a box of several. E.g., I bought Hellman's Mayo in a 1.5 L container and 6 pairs of underpants in one container. I buy 6 jars of pasata, bundled together.

They sell office supplies & furniture, large and small appliances, pet food and supplies, car stuff, light bulbs, meat in large containers, eggs, butter, cheese, clothing, books, make up and personal hygiene stuff, a limited selection of herbs and spices in huge containers, ...

Mine has a pharmacy, some of them have gas (petrol) stations.

The first time you go, plan on a couple of hours to check out the store.
