I went shopping today. I spept 200$ to make my house Mediterranean ready.
A big help was "big lots", I dont know if anyone has been there; but they have a whole section based on Mediterranean procducts. I dont think the mean too but they get imported products and just shelve them in one area. So its like a Med. Isle.
I bought a large jars of olives from Italy for 1.00. I bought four.
They also have crackers that are imported from france and italy.
Just wanted to pass on my find.
