Whole Foods...how I love thee

I went to Whole Foods for the first time ever today. I had to go into BR to pick up a sweet, used wagon for the girl-child ($15 - score!), so I decided to finally see what all the fuss is about.

I loved it. The produce, the fish, the meat cuts...the wine...AWESOME. The prices??? Not so much. Yikes.

I walked out with 4 Lady Apples (teeny tiny things...had to try them), a bag of Arborio rice (can't find it in the feckin' grocery stores around here, for some reason), a fruit cup, and some beer. Mr. Refney loves his Old Rasputin, and it was cheap. So, there ya go.

I also heard the Abita Brewery got itself blowed up this morning. Thank FSM, they'll be back in production tomorrow. I thought I was going to have to make a run on some Restoration Ale and Jockamo IPA. :) Also, we have a friend who works there, so glad no one was hurt. Doubly glad the beer is fine as well. :)

One of the best things to do in Whole Foods is to get the cheese dude (not sure what the real term for this guy/gal is) to slice off samples of lots of cheeses. My favorite: monchego! It's the shit!

The prices do suck ass. One day, maybe Wal-Mart and Whole Foods will collide. For now, with my broke ass, it is Wal-Mart.

Unfortunately, I'm a sad person who doesn't like cheese. I could barely walk through that area without gagging.

I know, Mr. Refney doesn't understand it. He just shakes his head... :)
