Trouble in WalMart’s Paradise?

That's A Wrap!


Hubby sent me several articles last week that there may be trouble in WalMart’s Paradise. One article entitled Customers Flee Wal-Mart Empty Shelves for Target, Costco. The story states that WalMart has opened more stores in the last year (455 in total), but has less employees working now than it did before those stores opened (20,000 less). That means stock doesn’t hit the floor, lines are long, and the stores are disorganized. WalMart again took last place in the American Customer Satisfaction Index, the sixth year in a row it did so.

The second article is hilarious: Wal-Mart may get customers to deliver packages to online buyers. Instead of the WalMart to go model where UPS or FedEx delivers, WalMart thinks your friendly neighborhood meth-dealer should be able to deliver your Sudafed. I am sure it would make it intact to your house.

Adding five full-time employees to Wal-Mart’s (WMT) U.S. supercenters and discount stores would add about a half- percentage point to selling, general and administrative expenses, according to an analysis by Poonam Goyal, a Bloomberg Industries senior analyst based in Skillman, New Jersey. Assuming the workers earned the federal minimum wage and industry standards for health benefits, the added costs would amount to about $448 million a year, she said. In the year ended Jan. 31, Wal-Mart generated $17 billion in profit on revenue of $469.2 billion.

To me, this sounds like penny-wise and pound-foolish. But hey, it is WalMart, what do you expect?

Do you shop at WalMart? Have you noticed a lack of stock on the floor? Longer lines? Less help in the aisles? At what point will you cease to shop at WalMart?

Easy Leftover Ham Casserole Recipe

I make this recipe every single time we have leftover ham. I make one to eat, and at least one to freeze. Recently I have begun to double the recipe, add an extra cream of mushroom soup, and then freeze in smaller containers (I will divide a double recipe into three containers). It is just Hubby and me. I could probably do four containers, but I am worried about burning the top.

In any event, it freezes very well. You do not bake before freezing. If you want to put the breadcrumbs on and then freeze you can (I usually do), or if you put them on before cooking when removed from the freezer, that is fine too. Why do I freeze with breadcrumbs on? I do not defrost. I simply pop it in a preheated oven and allow it to cook through until hot and bubbly.

This is truly easy to make and comes together quickly. The “hardest” part is dicing up the ham (that is what Hubby is for!!) and remembering to cook some rice ahead of time (another good use of a leftover).

You can use sticky rice if you like, but if you do the casserole is going to end up, hmmm … sticky. (I love sticky rice!)
