I ought not to be eating cheese if I am serious about losing weight, but then, it is so hard to deny cheese.
About six months ago in a fit of self-pity I dropped into a Rabba market on my way home and bought a small slab of Asiago Cheese.
It was tasty, tastier when grilled on toast.
I resolved to stop buying slabs of orange plastic from the supermarkets, to buy less cheese, but spend the same amount of cash and enjoy it more.
Well, for six months I have snapped up plastic whenever the price at No Frills drops below $10/Kg, and dabbled in Asiago wherever I find it.
Which is why some three months ago I checked out the price of Asiago in the Dominion store near the St Lawrence Markets, then found that the Asiago was cheaper in the markets.
I was back in the markets a few days ago, and decided to buy 200g of Asiago and 200g of France Comte.
The bill came to $36.64. Thatís as near as dammit to $40, which is ten slabs of plastic, on a good day at No Frills.
The French Comte is $80 per Kilo, and I have been objecting when plastic goes above ten!
The Asiago is $70 per Kilo, and I have been objecting when plastic goes above ten!
Whatís going on?
I think that this weekís trip to St Lawrence Markets saw me at the counter of a cheese shop ordering a tranche of cheese from a wheel.
When I buy a plastic-wrapped pre-cut and weighed slab of cheese, it comes much cheaper, whether it is in St Lawrence Markets, Dominion, Loblaws or wherever.
