Used to love it sliced very thin and cooked up crisp on griddle on outdoor Coleman stove when camping.........!

Cost of lamb and it's popularity in the U.S.

We love lamb,here in Seattle averages ~$15/lb. depending on cut.

Great Vegetarian Dinner

Don't know what Seattle neighborhood you moved to? but Blossom Vegetarian in Renton is excellent !! The chef is a woman,
a Buddhist Nun,and turns out delicious food.
The mushroom/steak skewers are so good,you'd think you're eating real beef.Many other meat/seafood choices that really do taste like the real thing.

La Plage Wading River

Yes,it is off the beaten path but had a very memorable meal there a number of years ago that was so outstanding.....roast duck,wild boar and some awesome treated and went all out !!

Whole Foods overcharging NYers

Never take your eyes off the cash register and what it rings up !!!

big big, fat, over-stuffed fridge/freezer!?!

I have a side by side fridge/freezer and when the freezer shelves were getting so overloaded and stuff falling down behind the shelves I went to the Dollar Tree and bought white baskets(ironically just the same size as each shelf--lucky!)and organized my stuff in them.
Now I have a designated meat,vegs,fish,etc.....basket that I just pull out individual basket.So much easier & neater !!


Better than bouillon low sodium.

Fish and chips that are worth a drive?

Hubby & I discovered "C-Lovers" a few years ago getting off ferry in Horseshoe Bay and then discovered there was one on Denman St.near hotel where we were staying.
Check out their website for menu and they also had the all you can eat option.....pieces are huge !
Some of the freshest,most delicious F&C we've ever had,you can watch them cook your order.
Chef apologized that they sold so much they ran out of fresh cod and would we mind if he substituted fresh Halibut(for same price!) ??!!!
Bingo !!! score of the day!!
Now if only they would open one in Seattle....?!!

The restaurant salad

And how about getting those big,leafy salads on miniscule saucers/plates?
A big peeve of mine! Take that first forkful and half the leaves fall all over the table !! How about using salad "Bowls" instead of flat plates,huh? !!

Thank you-will def. look into it.

Restaurants in Anacortes,Wa ? Mediterranean food(and Middle Eastern too).
