One Salami two salami three salami more...

So, I have to put a disclaimer at the beginning of this. I don't go to the deli, the prepackaged crap is just fine with me, and it's possible that Jimmy prefers it. It's not just that it's fine, but I am an instant gratification kind of girl. (this explains the twinkies for dinner instead of roast, salad, and veggies) How do I gain weight, I just can't explain it???

So... back to me. I don't want to stand at the deli, when there is turkey on the next aisle that I don't have to wait for, or talk to anyone about. But... salami... YUM. So, I hear a rumor that salami is on sale at the local wal-mart. (I don't need any comments on wal-mart and it's evils, don't bother, you will lose this debate)

I run to the deli, and see that the salami is on sale 2.48 instead of 4.48. I can't see straight. A SALE. I am so related to my grandma. So, I tell the deli lady, after 5 minutes of standing there looking stupid while the deli lady pretends that she's busy, I need some salami...
"How much do you need?"
"ummm, 5 lbs?" (remember I don't go to the deli, and I don't really do the grocery shopping, how am I supposed to know how much 5 lbs is?)

The deli lady gives me the look... you know the one... "What- I have to do something?" look, and she says " I don't think we have that much"

"Okay, just give me everything you have."

Duh... is this that complicated?

So, she finds some in the cooler somewhere and is really proud of herself and starts slicing...

30 minutes later... she's still slicing... okay that should be it.

Do you have any idea what 5 lbs of salami looks like? It looks like a ward party, scratch that, it looks like a stake party. It is a Ton.

So, can salami be frozen?

I bet if you google it you can find some yummy salami casseroles, or crockpot dishes, or deserts, or maybe even a costume (you can have the salami pocks for Halloween!)
