Any Recs for What to Buy with Lobel's Gift Certificate?

TerriL | Mar 10, 2009 06:58 PM

The catch is that the certificate is for $60, and shipping to my zone (CA) is $46 (seriously). So, that leaves me with $14 to 'play' with, which isn't going to get me much. I got the certificate from a well-meaning friend who probably didn't consider the shipping component. The 2.5lb. hickory-smoked slab bacon/$26 caught my eye, but I live in the SF Bay Area, so already have access to all kinds of bacon.

I hate to let this gift certificate go to waste, but I'm, also not thrilled about using such a wasteful shipping method. I'm not disputing that there's a better way to get fresh meat across country, it's just that I usually buy locally, so the whole concept is a little outlandish.

I could also try a dry rub marmalade, or something that doesn't need refrigerated shipping. That would bring shipping down to $11, leaving me with $49. Any suggestions there?

TIA for any suggestions.
