Advent calendars are fun to countdown the days until Christmas. Most calendars have little doors that open up and inside is usually a piece of candy. Well now a grocery store has made an advent calendar for adults and most moms I know.
Chester's Smokehouse of Albany had been a long time staple in the Capital Region for it's smoked meats, deli, specialty cheeses and more. Now - without warning or reason - it has mysteriously closed it's doors.
Today is National Grilled Cheese Day, and with the weather being a lot cooler today, the conditions for it were perfect! Not all grilled cheese is created equal. In honor of this timeless tasty sandwich, I made mine with 5 simple ingredients, but let it be known, while there may be multiple ways to get it right, there are a plethora of ways to screw this classic up!
On behalf of everyone here at 'GNA and really the entire Capital Region, I'd like to welcome 'Capitol Melts’ Grilled Cheese Café to Wellington Row in Albany!
Yes! This is exactly what we need! A grilled cheese only restaurant downtown...
When you’re part rat like we are, you quickly perfect the art of cramming cheese into every available crevice of any sandwich, burrito … bowl of cereal. We fill our grilled cheese with mac and cheese and dunk that in nacho cheese for good measure. It’s an obsession that was once rivaled by our love for bacon until we saw this guy eat an entire package raw.
According to a new report from the Center for Retail Research, the most frequently stolen food on the planet is… cheese.
The report says four percent of the protein and calcium-rich (not to mention tasty) food winds up being shoplifted worldwide every year, besting the theft-rates for other items like candy and alcohol and causing cheese to be labeled “high risk” for retailers.
