Shopping Bag: Jambon a Poeler

Dad is not feeling well at all. He's been feeling that way for the past couple of days, but it was really mild. Today, it's alarming. He's experiencing shortness of breath and his feet are enlarged. He didn't want to go see his doctor, but I called to have an appointment as soon as possible. The doctor sounded worried on the other line and told us to come right away in the afternoon. I quickly cooked lunch so we could prepare to go to the doctor's. Oh no, what's happening now???

I like to shop in Aldi once in a while. At first, I was hesitant to shop there, because I was warned that the stuff sold in Aldi were sous-marques or sub-brands. There are however a few branded items and they are less expensive than other known stores. Then, the horse meat in branded food scandal broke out in France and I realized that branded or sub-branded meant squat. The truth is when it comes to food, it comes down to trust. Such as in a restaurant. Your food is delicious, but you don't know really know how it was prepared, you just trust the chef and hope for the best.

It's the same here. I saw this pack of 4 slices Jambon a Poeler / Ham and bought it. I buy it every time now, and it's always so good.

The ham is about 1/4 inch thick and all you have to do is pan-fry it with some heated oil for a couple of minutes. I don't even add salt and black pepper.

Lunch is served: Jambon Poelee, Couscous, Sauteed Mixed Vegetables

Item: Jambon a Poeler (4 slices)
Store: Aldi in Solgne, France
Price: 3,19 Euros
