Lobster, live and kicking... $3.99lb, Market Basket, Woburn.

Just went to my local Shaws in Cambridge and they never heard of that special, $19.95. Maybe it was just your local store.

Portuguese Bread in Cambridge

Does anybody know where I can buy good Portuguese Bread like the kind they used to sell down the Cape. It wasn't the sweet kind but white and delicious when toasted. In Cambridge or close by? Thanks.

Date Nut Bread

Hi Everybody:

Just found some Date Nut Bread at Lyndell's Bakery, 270 Broadway in Somerville. $6.50 a loaf but good and moist. Add some cream cheese and yum.

New Italian in North Cambridge

Does anyone know anything about the new Italian restaurant in North Cambridge on Mass. Ave. I think it's called something like "Limpia". Thanks.

BAKED STUFFED SHRIMP

Hi Everyone:

Thought I'd make some baked stuffed shrimp for the fourth of July weekend. Any ideas about where I could buy some colossal shrimp that won't put me in the poorhouse? Thanks!

Inexpensive restaurants around Lincoln Center

I am going to see Warhorse with my daughter and son-in-law at Lincoln Center in a couple of weeks and wonder if anyone can recommend a restaurant(s) that are decent but don't cost a fortune. After paying for tickets, it doesn't leave much in my budget. Thanks for any tips.

SCONES

Several years ago, while in London, we would have coffee and scones in a little cafe down the street, for breakfast. Perhaps I'm just nostalgic but they were soooo good ... not too sweet and light. Where can I get the best scones around this area? As much as I love Wilson's Farm , I don't care for their scones. Thanks for any tips.

Where to buy frozen pigs-in-a-blanket (party franks) in the Boston area?

I know you want to buy them already made up but they are very easy to make and would be a lot cheaper if you make your own. Just buy the little cocktail franks you can get at any supermarket and wrap them in pieces of Pillsbury crescent rolls. Delish and cheap!

Plastic quart containers

Thank you all for your input. I just went to the deli department at my local Market Basket and asked if they sold them. They seemed a little surprised but sold me twenty for 10 cents apiece! Not bad!! I put the tupperware containers ($3.99 for three) back on the shelf!!

Plastic quart containers

Hi Everyone:

Does anyone know where I can purchase those quart-size plastic (cylindrical) containers you see everywhere ... for example, the soups at Wilson's Farm are in them. They're just the right size for storing leftovers, etc. There used to be a paper goods place in Arlington that sold them but they are closed now. Thanks for your help!

Precooked Thanksgiving Dinner

Hi Everyone:

We're having Thanksgiving at my daughters and I want to bring the whole meal since she is so busy. Any suggestions for a whole meal ... precooked turkey that just needs reheating, potatoes, squash, etc. etc. I'm thinking of Wilson Farms that has precooked turkeys but am open to suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Chinese Delivery Cambridge and surrounding towns

Hi Everyone:

Occasionally, like most people, we enjoy some delivered Chinese food. We live in North Cambridge, right near Quingdao Garden but have been disappointed with the food the last few times. Any suggestions for good delivery from Arlington, Cambridge, Somerville etc. that will deliver to North Cambridge? Thanks for your help!

Best mail order cookies!

Hi Everyone:

My daughter and husband both love cookies and since I'm missing Thanksgiving with them due to illness, I wanted to send them some cookies via mail (they live in Brooklyn, NY). Can anyone recommend the very BEST cookies to order via mail? Thank you for your input and best wishes to all for a nice Thanksgiving.

Lunch on the Waterfront or North End.

Hi Everyone

We have friends coming up to Boston for lunch. They know Boston well but was wondering if anybody has suggestions about any of the newer places on the waterfront. We don't eat out much so trying a new place would be fun.

Also would be open to a restaurant in the North End. Again, have only been a few times there so I'm not sure what's good. Thanks a lot!

Pepitas?

Hi Everybody:

Does anybody know where I can buy pepitas? They are little, greenish, salted pumpkin seeds (I think) that are often served with drinks in Mexico. Quite common there and tasty. Thank you!

Lima Beans

Does anybody know where I can get fresh lima beans? Wilson Farm didn't have any. If not fresh, does anybody know where I can get frozen baby lima beans, not the big ones. Thank you!
