Shouldn’t that be illegal?

Tonight no one in our home felt very enthused about dinner since we’re all recovering from the Plague Cold of 2006. My husband suggested poutine and we all agreed that it was a fast, easy, and very tasty choice. He bundled up and went to the store.

He went to Loblaws AND he stopped at two depanneurs on his way home – no one had curd cheese. No one! That’s practically a crime!

In the end I had to cut up those mozzarella cheese sticks that we always have in the fridge for the kids, and admittedly they do a decent imitation job, but really. No cheese curds at three locations that normally carry them is just wrong! I wonder if everyone else had the same idea we did and beat us to them!

(I did a little photo essay on how to make poutine over on my blog because I have a lot of American readers who don’t know what poutine is. I’m sure they’ll be a little horrifed by it; their loss!)

    The problem with getting curd cheese in Montreal is that their on-the-shelf life is rather short. Although it’s still no excuse, considering that a company like Fromages Kingsey (from Warwick in the Eastern Townships) can easily send its products to Montreal by truck in a couple of hours, 3 max if they’re going deep into the western suburbs or stuck in traffic.
