Well, La Di Da (Mirepoix at P-Chops)
I thought this was funny, don't know why. The first thing I saw upon walking into the Slingerlands-Chops (P-chops, if you don't know) the other day was a shrink wrapped container of "Mire Poix." Nothing against mirepoix, but this is funny. Apparently, Delmartian house-fraus can't be expected to brunoise their own carrots, onions, or celery.
I guess it is kind of good that P-chops is encouraging a certain level of culinary sophistication among the masses (mirepoix is pretty fundamental in my world, I hope that doesn't come off sounding snotty), but this anemic mess of vegetables looks a little sad to me. Expensive too, 2.42$ for a few ounces of veg...
My knives work, so I won't be purchasing this. Enough said.
