Lifespan of Lunch Meat and Leftovers

Eatingoutwest is right. I'm not sure what's going on that most things *have* to be thrown out on the third day because if it's cooked and kept cold, it'll keep a week easy.

That observation depends on:
*how cold you keep meat. (meat drawer or on the shelf?)
*how you store the meat (airtight ceramic or glass helps)

There are some corner cases where a week doesn't apply, but lunch meat certainly isn't one of them....

More Fish Fat, Less Human Fat?

I was so sick two weeks ago that I literally spent five straight days on the sofa

Illness definitely leads to weight loss unless you were plowing through junk food on the couch. Has your sodium intake gone down?

There aren't any alternatives to burning more calories than you consume to losing weight. Make various physical activities a priority while halving the ice cream and beer and you'll lose weight.

Buying Wine In Paris Not Seen in U.S.

Hi,

I am a consistent wine drinker in that I buy what I haven't seen in the store before.

I have certainly bought most of the wines exported and sold through distribution to retailers in Southern California. For those not in Southern California, most of it is widely distributed in most urban areas in the U.S.

Now, I am in Paris having made many careful plans, but no plan on what wines to sample while I am here! A local wine merchant sold us a *stellar* Sauvingnon (not the same as "sauvingon blanc") that we would never get in the U.S. for about USD $15.

To give you an example, there's no shortage of Chateauneuf De Pape in the shops here. I know them well enough, so it's not a high sampling priority.

Any suggestions welcome. We are in Monmartre where the wine shops are numerous.
