I believe it's three cups... but since cheese is sold be weight, isn't

How do you handle this volume vs. weight and block/whole nuts vs.  
ground/grated at the store?

That is part of what I ran info this last weekend.  The redaction said  
something like "2/3 C of ground almonds". But the store didn't have  
already ground almonds. They did have blanched, slivered almonds.  
However, they were sold by weight, not volume.

I ended up simply having to guess how much 2/3 of cup was in the  
plastic containers they provide and how much more would be needed to  
end up with 2/3 C of ground almonds. So it was a trade-off in spending  
more of the groups money than I wished, vs. not buying enough and  
having to drive back across town to get more, probably in the middle  
of prepping that food item. I erred on the side of having a bit too
