helt_img_pharmalogo

 Ordering Prescriptions

 

Can I have NEW first‐time prescriptions filled online?
No, that feature is not available at this time. Simply drop‐off first time prescriptions to your ShopRite Pharmacy or ask your physician to call. Once your prescription is entered into our system, future refills can be conveniently ordered online. Most Physicians now participate in “Electronic Prescribing” – your physician will be able to electronically submit an accurate, error‐free prescription directly to our pharmacy. This allows the convenience of having your prescription delivered to your Pharmacist and can help to eliminate your time spent waiting for it to be filled.

How can I check my refill status?
You cannot check the status of your refill online. We may contact you by phone, only if we have a question regarding your refill.

I use the ShopRite.com online grocery ordering service; do I pay at the Pharmacy or the Checkout for my prescription?
Currently all prescriptions are picked‐up and paid for at the pharmacy. This remains true for our online customers as well

Can I request other products or over‐the‐counter drugs with my refill?
That feature is not available at this time. We are currently testing online grocery shopping in limited areas and hope to have this service available some time in the future.

Can I have my prescription mailed (shipped) to my house?
Orders that are placed online cannot be mailed to your home at this time. We hope to add this feature in the future.

In the past, I have used your phone service to refill my prescription. Is that service still available or do I have to go online?
Our telephone service is still available; either option is available for you at any time. If your prescription is currently being filled at a ShopRite location and you would like it filled at another ShopRite Pharmacy, contact your ShopRite Pharmacist and they can help with your request. (Certain restrictions may apply)

When will my prescription be ready?
It is our goal to have all prescriptions filled within an hour. However, if there are questions about your refill, or if the drug you’ve requested is temporarily out of stock, there may be a delay.

Can I go to ANY ShopRite Pharmacy to pick up my order?
No. You need to go to the pharmacy that filled your original prescription. The store location is indicated on your prescription bottle. If you want to transfer your prescription to another location, please speak to your Pharmacist, for your convenience, they can help transfer your refills to another ShopRite location (Certain restrictions may apply).

Do I have to be present to pick up my order or can I send a family member?
Yes, they can pickup the order. They will be asked for identification and to sign that they are authorized to pick up the prescription.

My label states that there are no refills. What should I do?
Your ShopRite Pharmacist can assist by contacting your Physician on your behalf. Some drugs are classified as controlled substances and require a physician to reissue the prescription.

Order Status

I received a message that my order cannot be processed because you “cannot locate the prescription number in your records” — what do I do now?
There may be a number of reasons why this may have occurred: 1) Your prescription may be new and not yet in our system. Please call/visit your ShopRite Pharmacist with your Doctor’s prescription or request that your physician phone in the order. 2) The prescription was originally filled at another ShopRite Pharmacy and the store (number) you selected does not have it on file. Call the Pharmacy and request a transfer of your prescription. 3) You may have inadvertently entered the wrong prescription number. Please verify and request your order again.

I received a message that my order cannot be processed because it “cannot be refilled” – what do I do now?
A new prescription may be required. Your ShopRite Pharmacist can contact your Physician on your behalf. We may contact you by phone if there is a question with your prescriptions.

Can I order medical supplies online?
No, that service is not currently available online. See your store Pharmacist for information regarding supplies you may need.

Can I use my insurance with online refills?
Yes. When you filled the original prescription at the Pharmacy, you should have presented your prescription benefit card. If you have changed prescription plans since your last refill, please visit the Pharmacy prior to placing your online order so that the new information can be entered and your order filled properly.

My insurance information has changed, can I update this online?
No, that feature is not available at this time. Please visit the Pharmacy to present your new card.

Can I transfer my prescription to a different store online?
No. We are looking to add this feature to our site in the future. If you would like your current ShopRite prescription to be filled and picked up at another ShopRite location contact your ShopRite Pharmacist, they can assist with your request. (Certain restrictions may apply)

Meet the Cheese Maker

Pedro Garica – Cheese maker for El Cortijo Spanish Blue, one of our March Cheese Board Features!!!
 
The factory producing Spanish blue is family owned by Pedro Garcia Navalmoral and his two brothers, Roberto and Alvaro and their father Domingo. The family’s roots in dairy can be traced back to the 1940’s with Pedro’s grandfather. After the Spanish Civil war, Domingo Garcia Martinez worked in a cheese plant in Madrid which produced cow and sheep’s milk cheeses. Pedro began his cheese making “apprenticeship” in 1964 beside his father in production and milk procurement.

El Cortijo Spanish Blue is produced only in the Northern part of Spain. It is considered as the little brother from the Cabrales. This is certainly one of the most famous Blue Cheeses from Spain due to the manner in which goat and cow farmers jealously guard its origin and authenticity. A mixture of lactic and enzymatic coagulation techniques at low temperatures start the cheese-making process. The whey is drained slowly and naturally. Then salting of the rind is done by hand. Subsequently, the cheese is aired in ventilated areas for 3 or 4 weeks followed by storage in the caves. The slow aging process continues in the caves, under cold, oxygenated and very humid conditions. The cheeses are turned periodically until the paste has been completely grown with mold, acquiring its deep blue veining and resulting in a thick texture with the characteristic creamy and piquant flavor.

  • The curing process takes place from the outside inwards, basically by penicillium molds, which produce the typical smell and creamy texture of the cheese. Other molds and yeasts are also involved in the curing process, mostly in the rind.
  • A small amount of natural curd from a young goat is added to the milk, to obtain a soft coagulation, at least 1 hour later, best from 2 to 4 hours. The new curd then has to be smoothly beaten to obtain heterogeneous lumps of medium to large sizes. Then it must be left to settle, to dry, to increase acidity and to contract.
  • The floating whey is discarded and the remaining paste is used to fill the molds with a large spoon. The paste must be left soft and loose, leaving air holes to avoid excess compressing.
  • The filled molds must be left to drain under its own weight for 24 to 48 hours. During that time, the cheeses must be turned around often, and kept at a moderate temperature, 64 to 77ºF.
  • After the draining, the salting begins which lasts three days. Salt is distributed over the top, and left to be absorbed. After 24 hours, the cheeses are turned and salted in the same way on the other side. After two more days they are taken out the mold, salted on the sides, and taken to an airing room, where they must rest two to three weeks. The room must be fresh and well aired, to let the cheese develop a rind without molding, to intensify the acidity and to obtain the first lactic fermentation.

Tasting advice: Used to reinforce flavors of sauces and salads, as a dessert it is delicious with sweet sherry, melted over meats or mixed with cream to create a delicious soft spread
 
Flavor: A distinctively strong, tangy flavor, it is soft and creamy texture.
Wine Suggestions: The intense flavor of El Cortijo Spanish Blue demands a big red wine to match it or a sweet Spanish sherry to contrast the salty, savory cheese

·         1 Tbsp. dried dill weed

·         1 tsp. salt

·         1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Instructions:

Red Wine-Braised Short Ribs:

Preheat the oven to 325° F.

Season the ribs with salt and pepper. Heat the oil over medium heat in a large, heavy-bottomed, ovenproof pan. Add the ribs in batches and brown on all sides, about 8–10 minutes. Remove the ribs from pan and set aside. Add the onion and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes. Add the tomato paste, wine, and mustard to the pan and bring the mixture to a boil, using a wooden spoon to scrape up the brown bits that cling to the bottom of the pan. Return the ribs to the pan. Add the beef stock to the pan, cover, bring to a simmer, and place in the oven for 2-1/2 hours, until the meat falls easily from the bone. Remove the ribs from the pan, discard the bones, and cut the meat into bite-size pieces. Remove any excess fat from the surface of the cooking liquid. Transfer the cooking liquid to the bowl of a food processor and process until the mixture is a smooth sauce. Pour the sauce into a pan, add the rib meat to it, and keep warm over low heat. 

Roquefort Cheese Mashed Potatoes:

Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow the potatoes to steam dry for a minute or two.

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan.

Transfer the potatoes to a food processor. Add 8 ounces Roquefort cheese, milk, sour cream, butter, dill weed, salt, and pepper. Process until smooth. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle with the remaining 4 ounces Roquefort, then cover with aluminum foil. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking until the cheese is lightly browned, 15–20 minutes more.

Assembly:

Spoon some potato puree into a small wine or water glass. Place a piece of short rib meat on top of the potatoes. Place a fork in the glass and serve, garnished with herbs or fried onions, if desired.

Brush the cut side of the squash halves with some of the olive oil and place them on a baking sheet, oiled side down. Cut the top off the head of garlic and drizzle the remaining olive oil over it. Wrap the garlic in aluminum foil and place it on the baking sheet with the squash. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until the squash can easily be pierced with a fork. Scoop the squash out of its skin and into a mixing bowl, reserving a small portion for garnish, if desired. Squeeze the cloves of garlic out of their skins and into the bowl with the squash.

1. Be aware of the risk factors.  Find out if you have a parent or close family member with cardiovascular disease.  Also, if you have diabetes, it’s important to know that people with diabetes have an elevated risk of developing cardiovascular disease so talk to your doctor about keeping your blood sugar at a healthy level.

2. Know your numbers.Have your cholesterol and blood pressure checked regularly.  If either of these sets of numbers is high, your chance of developing cardiovascular disease is increased. If you have a high reading, make an appointment with your doctor to discuss your options.

3. Make healthy food choices. Your diet can have a major impact on your chances of developing cardiovascular disease. Fill your diet with heart-healthy foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meats such as white meat poultry and seafood, low-fat dairy and fiber-rich foods like beans, nuts and whole grains.  Limit your intake of fried foods and foods high in saturated fat and trans fat like high-fat meats, full-fat dairy and butter.  Also, limit your intake of bakery products like pastries, donuts and cake.

4. Establish a regular exercise program.  The American Heart Association recommends getting 30 minutes of physical activity, five days a week¹.  Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving like climbing stairs, playing sports or simply walking.  Consult with your doctor to see what forms of activity are appropriate for your age and current physical condition.

5. Maintain a healthy weight.  Being overweight increases your chance of developing cardiovascular disease.  Work with your doctor and registered dietitian to find a healthy eating and exercise plan that will work for you.

6. If you smoke, quit! Smoking is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. But there is hope for quitters.  According to the American Medical Association, people can begin to see health benefits as soon as 24 hours after their last cigarette. And just two weeks after quitting, circulation improves and lung function increases.²

7. Get a handle on your stress. Stress may help contribute to heart disease. Stress can also cause your blood pressure to rise and may lead to unhealthy behaviors such as smoking or binging on unhealthy foods.  Take a few minutes out each day and do something you enjoy, like reading, spending time with friends or yoga.

Heart disease is a leading cause of death in the United States for both men and women. If you follow a healthy diet and lead an active lifestyle, you may be able to reduce your risk of heart disease. Work with your physician and registered dietitian to develop a lifestyle plan that is right for you.

J.         HOW TO WIN

 

There will be several steps to the review process of each Video:

 

(1)   Phase 1: Entry and Initial Review.  During the Entry Period, July 29, 2013 through October 6, 2013, Entrant may submit a Video to the Sponsor.  All Videos that are submitted to the Program Site will be evaluated by the Sponsor to ensure that they meet the Video Requirements.  Thereafter, the Sponsor will notify Entrant that the Video is posted on the Program Site, or tell Entrant that the Video was refused or rejected for a failure to meet the Video Requirements. 

 

(2)   Phase 2: Public Voting Period.  Next, during 12:00 p.m. EDT on October 9, 2013 and 11:59 p.m. on October 27, 2013 (“Voting Period”), the public will receive the opportunity to vote on all the Videos posted to the Program Site.  Each individual will have an opportunity to review all Videos posted on the Program Site and may cast one vote for the Video that he or she feels is most compliant with the spirit and purpose of the Program.  Limit one vote per person/email address, per video, per 24 hours.  This means that persons may vote for more than one video per day, but they may not vote for the same video more than one (1) time in any 24 hour period.  Persons must be over the age of eighteen (18) to vote.  Votes must be recorded by the Sponsor’s server by 11:59 PM EDT on October 27, 2013.

 

Note, at any time during the Voting Period, the Sponsor may determine that a Video fails to meet the Video Requirements and may remove the Video from the Program Site. 

 

(3)   Phase 3: Judging Period.  During the Voting Period, a panel of judges who are Mars Food US employees and advertising/marketing partner affiliates and Rachael Ray representatives will evaluate each Video to select three (3) Videos to receive the Finalist Prize described above.  This judging period will occur between the dates of October 9, 2013 and October 27, 2013.  These judges will consider the following Judging Criteria when evaluating each Video:

 

  • ·         Personality and ability to engage and inspire the audience (20%);
  • ·         Level of enthusiasm for the recipe and cooking (20%);
  • ·         Demonstrating a basic knowledge of food and recipe (20%);
  • ·         Creativity in responding to the questions posed by Entrant (20%); and
  • ·         Votes: the total number of votes that the Video received on Facebook during the Public Voting Period (20%).

 

The judges reserve the right, but not the obligation, to interview any of the Entrants outside of the appearance on Rachael Ray. The judges will give each Video a score based upon the criteria listed above.  The three (3) Entrants with the highest scores will be chosen as potential Finalists.  In the event of a tie, the potential Finalist will be determined by the highest score in the category of “level of enthusiasm for the recipe and cooking.”  Judges’ decisions are final.

 

Potential Finalists will be notified by email and/or telephone on or about October 28, 2013 and the Parent will be required to execute and return, within three (3) days of issuance of notification, an affidavit of eligibility, assignment of rights, liability and (where legal) publicity release (“Prize Documents”), which will include, without limitation, their granting of permission for their names, likenesses, recipes and Videos to be displayed in correlation with all advertising for Mars Food US, the Program, and the Rachael Ray show and in any manner or in any media, now known or hereinafter developed by the Sponsor and/or KWP/Rachael Ray.  The Parent(s) must sign the Prize Documents on behalf of his or her Child, and consent to the Child’s participation and acceptance of the prize.  For the Finalists, this consent will extend to both the Finalist Prize and the Grand Prize, in the event the Finalist is chosen as a Grand Prize Winner.  The Parent(s) must provide the Prize Documents to the Sponsor electronically, via the mechanism described by the Sponsor in the prize notification.   The Prize Documents will also confirm the Finalist’s acceptance of the Finalist Prize, as well as their ability to travel to New York to film a segment on Rachael Ray during the dates of November 11, 2013 – November 25, 2013 and again during the dates of January 6, 2014 – January 20, 2014 in the event the Finalist is chosen as a Grand Prize Winner.  The Finalist must also warrant that the recipe has not previously won a prize or reward.  Any prize (including the School Participation Reward) may be forfeited or a potential winner disqualified if there are any issues with acceptance of any prize during this process. Specifically, if notification documents are returned as non-deliverable, if a Finalist is found to be ineligible or not in compliance with these Official Rules, is unable to travel to New York for Rachael Ray, does not respond within the time period specified, or cannot accept the terms and conditions of being a Finalist or Grand Prize Winner, in the event the Finalist is chosen as a Grand Prize Winner, if time permits, the next highest scored Entrant may be notified and the same process will be followed.  The Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may determine whether there is a need to select an alternative Finalist, in the event that one of the three (3) chosen Finalists is unable to accept the Finalist Prize or Grand Prize, in the event the Finalist is chosen as a Grand Prize Winner.  Note: Finalists will be required to execute separate Rachael Ray show Appearance and Materials Releases.

 

Additionally, judges will review school participation to award the School Participation Reward described above.  One School Participation Reward (defined above) per Group (defined above) will be determined based on the highest total number of valid points received during the entire Program Period. The school with the highest number of valid points in each Group at the end of the Program Period will be selected as the potential Winning School to receive a check for a cafeteria makeover (see above for details), subject to verification of eligibility (including number of students – based on initial list) and compliance with these Official Rules. In the event of a tie in any Group, the school that received the highest number of valid points first (as determined in the sole discretion of Sponsor by Sponsor’s clock) will be selected to potentially receive the reward. NOTE: The cafeteria makeover will be provided to the schools.

 

Each potential School Participation Reward recipient will be notified by phone and overnight mail on or about October 9, 2013. An authorized representative of the school will be required to sign all documents required by Sponsor within seven (7) days of notification of receipt in order to receive the School Participation Reward. If such representative cannot be contacted, fails to execute and return the documents required by Sponsor within the required time period, or if notification is returned as undeliverable, such school will forfeit the Prize and the Sponsor will have no further obligation to such school. At Sponsor’s sole discretion, Prize may be awarded to a runner up for the Group at issue based on points. Receipt of the Prize is subject to school providing all necessary consents deemed required by Sponsor. By accepting a Prize, each school agrees to the use of its name, location, trademarks, logos, photograph, and/or image in any and all media now or hereafter known, worldwide and on the Internet and in perpetuity by Sponsor and its designees without compensation (unless prohibited by law) or additional consents from such school or its authorized representatives or any third party and without prior notice, approval or inspection, and to execute specific consent to use if asked to do so. All Prize details are at Sponsor’s sole discretion.

 

NOTE: For all potential award recipients, including those potentially receiving funds as part of the Runner Up, Finalist, Grand Prize, or School Participation Reward, please note that by accepting a prize, each Entrant and School agrees to the use of its name, location, trademarks, logos, photograph, and/or image in any and all media now or hereafter known, worldwide and on the Internet and in perpetuity by Sponsor and its designees without compensation (unless prohibited by law) or additional consents from such school or its authorized representatives or any third party and without prior notice, approval or inspection, and to execute specific consent to use if asked to do so. Schools will be provided with affidavit and prize documentation prior to receiving any prize.  Please note that a school may be disqualified if it refuses to complete any of the affidavits or prize documents.  In such case, Sponsor reserves the right to award such school prize to another school or entity selected by Sponsor, in Sponsor’s sole discretion.  All prize details and decisions are at Sponsor’s sole discretion.

 

(4)   Phase 4: Top 3 Segment and Public Voting Period 2.  At sometime during the dates of November 11, 2013 – November 25, 2013, the Finalists will fly to New York to film a segment on Rachael Ray.  This segment will feature each Finalist “team” (i.e., Parent and Child) participating through cooking.

 

Between the dates of November 25, 2013 at 12:00 PM EDT and, December 8, 2013 until 11:59 PM EDT (“Public Voting Period 2”), the public can vote on the Finalists Videos, which will be posted on the Program Site.   Limit one vote per person/email address, per video, per 24 hours.  This means that persons may vote for more than one video per day, but they may not vote for the same video more than one (1) time in any 24 hour period.  Persons must be over the age of eighteen (18) to vote.   Votes must be recorded by the Sponsor’s server by 11:59 PM EDT on December 8, 2013.

 

(5)   Phase 5: FINAL JUDGING.  After the completion of the Rachael Ray show, a panel of judges who are Mars Food US employees and advertising/marketing partner affiliates and Rachael Ray representatives will evaluate each of the Finalist’s Videos, as well as their appearances on Rachael Ray, to determine the Grand Prize Winner.  This final judging period will occur sometime between the dates of November 25, 2013 –   December 8, 2013.  Specifically, the judges will consider the following: 

 

  • ·         Personality and ability to engage and inspire the audience (20%);
  • ·         Level of enthusiasm for the recipe and cooking (20%);
  • ·         Demonstrating a basic knowledge of food and recipe (20%);
  • ·         Creativity in responding to the questions posed by Entrant (20%); and
  • ·         Votes: the total number of votes that the Video received on Facebook during the Public Voting Period 2 (20%).

 

The judges will give each performance a score based upon the criteria listed above.  The Finalist with the highest score will be chosen as a potential Grand Prize Winner.  In the event of a tie, the potential Grand Prize Winner will be determined by the highest score in the category of “The total number of votes that the Video received on Facebook during the Public Voting Period 2.”  Judges’ decisions are final.

 

Potential Grand Prize Winner will be notified by email and/or telephone on or about December 27, 2013 and may be required to execute and return additional prize acceptance documents and/or liability waivers.  In the event such documents are needed, the Parent(s) must sign on behalf of his or her Child and provide the documents to the Sponsor in the manner described in the notification. If any notification documents are returned as non-deliverable, if the potential Grand Prize Winner is found to be ineligible or not in compliance with these Official Rules, is unable to travel to New York for Rachael Ray, does not respond within the time period specified, or cannot accept the terms and conditions of being a Grand Prize Winner, the next highest scored Finalist will be notified and the same process will be followed.  Note: Grand Prize Winner will be required to execute separate Rachael Ray show Appearance and Materials Releases.
