    It's maki with shrimp tempura, cream cheese and a sweetish BBQ sauce. So awesome. One of the reasons Wegmans is so dangerous.

    I almost bought a new shamrock hat for my horse for St. Pat's, but that was the only temptation I resisted.

    Also, Pepperidge Farms strawberry thumbprint cookies are so good. So, so good.

    I've heard that before but was suspicious of it--good to hear that it turned out well! I wanted to use buttermilk in my cornbread the other night but didn't have any; will definitely try that in the future.

    You guys are making me feel even more afraid to make the trip to the local Co-op grocery for milk and eggs IF i can get dug out by Saturday. Last time I went for milk and eggs, I came home with grapefruit pop, 5 1 litre boxes of juice (in my defence, they were 5 for 5.00), a frozen lasanga, chicken burgers (also on sale) and a box of Ruffles cookies, something that, apparently, are available only in Canada.....pity, as they are the most delightful coconut confection, coated with chocolate

    I drive past Wegman's on my way home from the barn every day. I am not the size of a house, but I may be headed for the poorhouse...

    A couple of green fig leaves work just as well to make buttermilk or cottage cheese out of fresh milk.

    Went to Wegmans on Friday for a 6 pack of red peppers, some hummus and baba ghanoush for my visiting college student. $200 later...

    Imagine your dream grocery store. Then imagine your dream food court. Put them under one building, make it 10x better and you've got a Wegman's.

    Wegmans is da BOMB! Mine has a fresh fish grill right next to the fish counter. They serve wine in real glasses. There's a fresh sushi stand, a stir-fry stand, pizza, and a by-weight buffet and salad bar. I took a visiting Aussie friend there last summer. She was a bit confused by "eating at the grocery." Until she walked inside

    Yes, a tbsp of distilled white vinegar to one cup of *whole* milk makes it react the same as buttermilk in a recipe. It works best if you let the milk reach room temp, then add the vinegar and let sit 5-15 minutes.
    The reason most recipes specify buttermilk is because of the acidity of the buttermilk. It makes certain recipes work better.
    But if you're swapping milk for buttermilk in a recipe, you also have to adjust *down* the amount of baking soda or powder used. All act as a leavening agent or "riser." If you use too much of both you'll end up with a too-airy and epic-height baked goody, LOL!
    You can also use sourcream in place of buttermilk, or even plain yogurt. Just mix with a little milk (enough to thin it to the consistency of shaken buttermilk, which is thick) and stir until smooth/thick liquid. Both add enough acid to react like buttermilk.

    I'm having a hard time believing you eat that, Sarah. You are tiny!

    I don't know what Wegman's is. Grocery store? I can't afford to shop at grocery stores. The only place I really get food is the Grocery Outlet and the 99cent store. I can buy four bags of stuff for under $50.

    I do hit Trader Joe's (do you guys have that?) for my specialty items. I LOVE their frozen naan bread and Afrcan bread, that I just discovered is really nice with their to die for salmon dip. I also get my raw uncooked cashews and sunflower seeds (for salads) there. Costco for bread, raw almonds, and cat food.

    I love a Wegmans, and throw the budget out the door as soon as I walk in. I just never get what I went for, being distracted by all of the other goodies there! I come home with the strangest stuff, drives my husband crazy!

    Completely different than Safeway, Wegmans is more of a shopping experience, LOL. Our local store offers an awesome prepared food area (think cafeteria), with a balcony above where children can go watch movies. The last time I was there Racheal Ray was doing a book signing. You can actually sit down at a bar, have a glass of wine and watch a chef prepare you a quick meal. Of course they have all the other stuff, which now you can see why I usually forget it!

    ...You know, minus the chocolate...potato-chip-crusted steak sounds really, really good.

    ...I have a skintight dress to wear Friday, I really need to not think about that. (Though we always have dinner after our rounds at this comp.)

    OK, bey, WHAT does that mean?

    So, it's a rich people store with everything? The Safeway around the corner has a deli, prepared food, a Starbucks where you can sit down, a pharmacy, florist, etc.

    No chefs cooking and bar, though. Whole Foods ish? I dunno. I don't shop at places that cost that much!
