Chickening Out

CanchickenAfter my less than convincing experiment with farmers' market chicken this weekend, I was pleased to read Pete Wells' Cooking With Dexter column (which I normally ignore because I can't handle the foodie kid theme), "The New Chicken Economy." Apparently, a $35 chicken has sent him fleeing for the supermarket. I've been there along, good times or bad.

Perhaps even more notable was his mention of a pay cut in the publication that cut his pay. If the six-figure salaried think greenmarkets are expensive, what hope is there for the rest of us?

At least no one has resorted to chicken in a can yet

    Did you ever try Bread in a Can? (I seem to think that you did, but not sure). The perfect accompaniment…

  2. lisa: No, I’ve never been so lucky. I’ve wondered about that brown bread (it is brown bread, right?) for years.
