Made this pizza five days ago: I did not had anything to top it off other than some cheap cold cuts, so I decided to go for plain cheese kind of pizza. I got the dough at the Italian bakery for $1.50, and its a good dough that I have used on my last pizza [Chinese Food Pizza] about 2-3 weeks ago and decided to use it again. I amped-up the sauce a bit with some honey BBQ sauce and used average shredded cheese. The pizza came out really good/tasty and I ate it all within 1 hour.

Got these at the Deals store for $1.00 per box [regular/green box Michelina's frozen meals are cranked-up to $1.25] and bought 3 of them since thats the number of them that is needed to have a good/hearty portion. It tastes decent but nothing special, and they sure didn't tasted "homestyle" to me.
Found this open jar of cauliflowers in sauce at my grandparents' place, took sample bite and ate whatever was in the jar - it was that good. I checked the Russian stores in my area and none of them carry it in stock. If I will find any more of these jars, I will buy at least 4 of them.
Entenmann's Ultimate/"Blue" line of products is always tasty, but they almost never stock the shelves with these products in my area, so when I see something from the Ultimate line - I buy it. These cookies tasted great and its not the first time I tried them. They are nice and moist and full of flavor. I got them for $2.50 on sale about 8-9 months ago.
Got these Russian snack croutons over at the SmartCost Market Russian store for $0.50 per pack. The flavor supposed to be salami, but it did not tasted like it, just a bit of liquid smoke type of flavor to these croutons. I was hungry, so I ate them all and did not complained.
Found a bunch of these Heat and Eat soups at Deals for $1.00 each several months ago, and I kinda forgot to make a tear on the bag on this one, so it exploded and made a mess, but the cheesy soup was edible and I enjoyed it. They don't have it anymore in stock [I checked].
Pretty good strawberry soda that I got at Stop & Shop for $0.77. It has nice carbonation, and thats the thing that I was concerned about. Too bad that the nearest Stop & Shop is far from me, otherwise the $0.77 price for 2-liter bottles is pretty cheap, and they have wide selection of their private label of sodas.
Pretty decent potstickers that were sampled-out at Costco about a month ago. I did not buy them since they weren't on sale, but taste-wise they were pretty good [I like them]: not too spicy.
Found these 4-packs of gelatin cups over at Kmart in Manhattan for $1.00; its the best price in the city for a 4-pack. The quality/taste is very good since its made by Jell-O. I bought around 17 of these and ate them all in about 4 days.

I was at the NetCost Market yesterday and while I was checking out the seafood section, I stumbled upon these pre-packed containers of smoked salmon lox. Low price of just $1.39 per pound [$1.60 per whole container] attracted me to buy it and give it a try. I was fully prepared that these salmon slices would be total rotten crap, and that I would probably throw them out, but after taking a small bite out of slice, it tasted not bad. I downed the first slice and then 3 more with some Portugese bread. The lighter, pink slices taste much better than darker ones and they don't really have off-putting flavor or smell to them, and I found that this salmon was generally enjoyable. I'd rather prefer that all slices be pinkish, but for $1.60 you get what you get, and you can throw it out if you don't like it. Its not "Grade A" smoked salmon, but for such low price its practically a steal; an excellent value! I will definitely buy more of these pre-packed containers in the future.
