Fixed.



BTW, The Cosworth Vega gets an honorable mention for having electronic fuel injection in 1975. Plus check out that stock header!

Ah, so it was every bit as advanced as a stock (non-Cosworth) 1975 Volkswagen Beetle!

Look, Chevy Vegas are what mentally handicapped pedophiles drive when they're "off duty" (eg: not kidnapping children from playgrounds with the lure of free candy in the back of their windowless Econoline van.) They have no redeeming value aside from their utility in humorous comparisons.


And they're still ugly.


But what does any of this have to do with good cheese?

I've only ever tasted a few so-called "cheese substitutes", and I found them all to be wretched. I seem to recall writing a rather lengthy and vitreous diatribe on that very subject here a few years ago. Ah, yes. Here it is: https://www.miataturbo.net/insert-bs-here-4/few-words-cheese-50069/ (I actually intended that to just be a humorous rant, and it somehow wound up turning serious. We'll have none of that here in this thread.)

At the moment, all I have in the fridge is some Tillamook 9mo old sharp cheddar. This thread is making me want to actually visit the "new" Trader Joe's which I ride past every day but haven't been to in the four years it's existed.

Trader Joe's also has the dark chocolate peanut butter cups, conveniently packaged in net 16oz containers, for your binging pleasure. Kicks all kind of Reese's ***.

And the almost-fully-baked ciabatta loaves are awesome as well. Pop them in for 7 minutes at 400. Slather with butter. Tasty.

Joe, I'm honestly surprised you don't have a site dedicated to your rants.

Most are epicly epic.

Hmm. You know, I didn't even realize such a thing existed. One of the many first-world problems with which I concern myself has to do with the problem of staleness in store-bought ciabatta rolls. The smallest SKU which I can purchase at Vons is 4 units of sandwich-sized ciabatta rolls. At a typical rate of consumption of perhaps 0.75 ciabatta rolls per day, I almost never find that the fourth and last roll to be taken out of the package has substantially retained any of the qualities of "soft and chewiness" which in large measure contribute to the appeal of ciabatta in the first place.

Having the ability to purchase pre-made ciabatta which is suspended in a transitional state and then complete the phase change on an as-needed basis may completely ameliorate this condition.

Haha.

Are you familiar with the name Bob Hoover? Probably not. He was a major name in the DIY aircooled VW community years ago, and at some point after the common acceptance of UseNet but prior to the widespread use of web-based forums, someone went and complied every single one of his Major Rants into a document entitled "The Sermons of Bob Hoover." I remember printing the whole thing (maybe 200 pages?) on the big DEC line printer when I was in college and binding it for posterity. I'm sure I still have it somewhere.

I recognize the name. I was a frequent UseNET denizen at one point.

On a related and yet unrelated rant - people on forums think they know what trolls and flamewars are NOW? Jeebus, UseNET (Back in my day!) would have torn them a new -------.

So, I'm now officially a guy who has been to Trader Joe's.

Weird place.

In a way, it reminds me of a small, low-budget version of Jungle Jim's, only without all of the exotic groceries and run by hippies and heavily tattooed people. I did get a laugh out of some of the store brands in the beer-and-liquor section. Trader José cerveza, Frugal Joe's Ordinary Beer, JosephsBrau Dunkelweizen, Trader Joe-San's Saki, and the infamous Charles Shaw wine, still only $2 a bottle after all these years.
Fun fact: empty Bordeaux style 750ml amber wine bottles, purchased from a homebrew supply store, typically cost around $15 a case ($1.25 ea), plus around 15 cents each for a cheap #9 cork (when purchased in qty 30), and whatever it costs to print a label and slap some foil on the top. Given this, the value of the actual wine inside a Charles Shaw bottle is slightly less than 60 cents.
I'm kind of surprised that there wasn't some artisanal, certified organic, small-batch malt liquor on the shelves as well. "Mad Joe fortified wine." I wonder if this is a potential market...


Anyway, to the bread counter.

I didn't find any almost-fully-baked ciabatta loaves, however I did pick up a pack of "par-baked panini rustic rolls."



I was kind of expecting this to be a ball of raw dough, but as-delivered it's more like a slightly undercooked roll. Turned out to be quite yummmy. I zap 'em in the toaster oven at 350 for about 5-6 minutes, which puts a nice burnt finish on the top but leaves the inside chewy. They're also keeping rather well- the last one made it to day 5 without being completely dried out and hard.


While there, I also spent some time looking at the cheeses. To be honest, the selection here wasn't quite as large as I'd expected, and the variety wasn't all that impressive either. I'm not saying it was horrible, I just figured that they'd have a larger and more diverse selection than, say, the local Vons supermarket.

One thing which did catch my eye was this sliced goat cheese, something I'd never seen before.



Interesting concept, so I picked up a pack. Put together a little sandwich out of the aforementioned roll, some braunschweiger, and a slice of the goat cheese. Yummy, though not at all what I was expecting. Normally, goat cheese tends to be very tangy, whereas this was much more subtle and mild. It had a nice texture, but the flavor seemed lacking. I suppose that's to be expected from a goat cheese which is young enough to be sliced and retain its shape. Normally when I think of goat cheese I visualize a chèvre that's been brined and aged until it is soft and mushy- I can't recall ever having tasted a really fresh, young goat cheese.


So now I realize that there's a Whole Foods a few miles from here which I've never been to either. I wonder if they have interesting cheese.
