battening down

October 21st, 2013 at 02:21 am

I did find the BOGO beef special at Albertsons, so I got 2 packs of sirloin tips and spent 15mins opening the packages, wrapping the beef tightly in paper, ziploc bagging servings, and ziploc bagging that so its a unit. I've got beef, lamb, fish, shrimp, eggs (in the refrigerator). I'll be okay if the grocery strike doesn't last too long. We are coming up on the holiday season so I think all sides would be motivated. However, the last strike (just for QFC I think) lasted 86 days.

I figure I can fill in grocery issues using: Target, various ethnic grocery stores including Uwajimaya, Pike Market for produce, Whole Foods and PCC, and the U district and Ballard Farmers Markets.

Did go to Fred Meyer to use the blood pressure reader - 124/84. Yeah!

    I'm looking forward to using Pike Place for Bavarian and Magyar meats. Trader Joe's should be available too. I've been going to Rising Sun on NE 65th and Lenny's on Greenwood Ave N.

    Yep. And Top Banana on NW 65th for produce, plus the Town & Country Markets in Ballard and Shoreline.

    I've been sick with pneumonia for the past three weeks so I am out of the loop a bit.

    Is this strike going to affect Northern California? I have not heard of it at all, but I won't cross a picket line as I am part of a union as well.

    Nope - just western Washington, middle. King County (where Spondilucks and I are), Pierce, Thurston and think Kitsap. I don't think it will hit Lucky Robin either.

    Strike averted! And I'd just gone to Puget Consumers Co-operative too (for bulk sweet paprika)!
