I was looking in the refrigerator trying to find the best deal on the largest container of half-and-half for Super Milk (4 oz. whole milk, 4 oz. half-and-half, and a packet of Carnation Instant Breakfast) and had the thought "Why doesn't the grocery store sell half-and-half in a gallon container like milk?" Then, just as soon as I had the thought it came to me: "Uh, E, most normal people don't go through half-and-half as quickly as milk. Duh!" Then, keeping in stride with the conversation - with myself - I answered and said, "Well, in my grocery store...in my CF grocery store...half-and-half comes in a gallon jug." Up to this point, people around me didn't know about this private conversation going on with myself, thankfully, in my head. I couldn't help but chuckle at what a silly idea a CF grocery store is. As I made my way over to the 12+ foot refrigerated section of yogurt, I was delighted to have 2 choices of whole milk yogurt for Samuel. Just like before, it came to me. "In my CF grocery store, there aren't any low-fat/non-fat yogurts."
It didn't take long to get me on a roll, so I made a list of the things in my CF grocery. Well, I didn't make a written list, but I did give it a little thought. In addition to the items above, here are just a few things that will be in my CF grocery store:
- Boxes of "Just Yolks" will be on the shelf next to "Just Whites" to allow the chef (HA!) to create their own ratio of yolk to white as needed.
- No part-skim cheese. Only whole milk cheese.
- Frozen vegetables with butter sauce in a 1 lb. to 1 lb. ratio.
- The widest selection of dips like, ranch dressing, peanut butter, Nutella, sour cream, cream cheese...pretty much anything to add some extra flavor. And calories.
- Full fat ice cream. REAL ice cream. In any flavor you could think of.
- There is no such thing as turkey bacon. Or turkey sausage.
