This has to be the Disneyland of grocery shopping and you do pay for the pleasure. (Isn't it such a lift to see a cold case with every fish filet in perfect condition?) I hasten to add that at my Albertson's, and maybe all of them, you can get beautiful grouper and mahi mahi for half the price - you just need to watch the seafood cases. I recently had a wonderful fish (white flesh firm not flaky, like grouper) called something like "escalorn", that was delicious broiled and would hold up well in courtbouillion or stew. Anyway, the point of this post is that I got to UWF around 8:30 on Sunday and parked inside. There were plenty of open parking spaces, very few cars had arrived yet. Hungry Celeste, I only saw one of those kiddie carts and it was not obstructing anyone yet. And something nice - they sell white tea, which is an unfermented tea, but uses the new growth leaves and has a super high version of green tea antioxidants. Has anyone tried blue foot mushrooms?
