    Friday I purchased a 3 pound package of IQF Sole filets. I set them in fridge to thaw in a bowl raised up as I did not want them sitting in water.  I wanted to bread them. Sunday AM I took them out of fridge and the bowl was almost filled with water. Having a curious nature I decided to weigh the water. It was a pint and weighed 1 lb.. So now instead of costing me $3.00a pound, it cost me $4.50. I wish I could find a way to use the expensive water. I knew it was going to throw water but not that much. Fish was good however. Shows you when you are doing food cost what you have to look for when your doing portion pricing. .......
