a snippet of something i heard on npr last night…
something about treehouse (this organization, i believe: http://www.treehouseforkids.org/ ) buys graduation gowns for kids… maybe they can use it?
and then there’s this… mark driscoll is back and he wants your money (imagine that).
i order delivery from mae ploy on 15th and 65th all the time- (have never set foot inside).
dinner for 3 including rice and apps is around $60. http://www.maeployballard.com/
i’ve had siam, also good, but i can’t tell the difference and i think mae ploy is cheaper (plus they deliver w/in 3 miles).
FWIW, I kept coming back to my forum bookmark: http://www.myballard.com/forums/
and thought it was still down…that could be why there is so little activity…
folks aren’t used to having to click “open forum” (the url has changed).
i was down on market and 24th on Friday afternoon putting up a yardsale sign and the mark24’s fire alarm was going off, lights on the outside of the building were flashing, and the annoying screeching/beeping. my friend that was with me said her friend in a neighboring building says it’s been incessant…making it impossible to work from home, having to close windows just to be able to think. it drove me crazy and i only listened to it for 5 minutes.
don’t know if anyone cares at this point- but there is an amazon local deal for OAC: $49 for one month with training– might be good to try it out for a bit longer than the 2 week trial. http://local.amazon.com/seattle/B00KH0VU6Q?ref_=site_more&cid=site_more
cate- i just emailed you…
Fire is tapped, but a huge response was called in to fight it. not sure what this means, but they ended up calling for a “211 response”…fire marshall and public info officer are enroute.
costco actually does have quite a bit of organic produce (large containers of mixed greens, broccolini, spinach, carrots, kale mix) some fruit, not terribly expensive for the quantity, certainly cheaper than the ballard market. i don’t understand why their tomatoes aren’t labeled organic, i think they’re grown hydroponically…seems like that should be an easy method to make organic. it’s weird- on sunday all the organic produce signage/price labels were in green plastic sleeves instead of the usual clear sleeves…it was so helpful. but when i went today- the organic produce was priced/labeled just like the non-organic in the clear sleeves.
they also have and increasing selection of organic beef and chicken, and other organic grocery items, oils, cereal, canned got goods, frozen fruit/veggies, pasta…and gluten free items too.
to clear up the lemon confusion– the bags of organic sunkist lemons were labeled organic but they were right next to the non-organic meyer lemons and i mixed them up when i glanced at them on sunday. in the past, the bagged lemons were not organic, so i hope this is a permanent thing. i ended up buying the regular-organic lemons.
and EDOG- if you’re still reading- the 1.75L kirkland vodka, which is really grey goose from france, is $30.11 with tax…the grey goose 1.75L is listed at bevmo.com for $44.99 +tax…fwiw, i’m fairly sure neither are organic ;)
Cate, I just emailed you. note to anyone interested, the meyer lemons at costco are NOT organic, it’s the regular sunkist 5.5lb bag for $7.50 labeled organic. sorry for the misinformation.
i’m going back to get some lemons- probably tomorrow. i saw them at the shoreline store, and it didn’t look like there were a lot left. anybody interested? i can’t remember how much they were.
@Cate- i was at costco yesterday and they had large bags of organic meyer lemons…i almost bought some, but couldn’t think what i’d do with them all…can you share your limoncello recipe? maybe i’ll go back and get some if i still have time to let it sit before summer.
i too have heard that the kirkland vodka is grey goose, i like it for cocktails.
