Just a quick note to all you vultures - Sunflower Foods is pretty much picked bare with only a 25% discount. I stopped by today out of morbid curiosity and was shocked at how bare the shelves were already. True - they are closing down for good in about a week, but I did expect people to hold out a little longer for deeper discounts. I picked up some canned clams and sardines, a kilo of green beans and a couple chunks of cheese.

I had shopped at Sunflower only once since it open. I was underwhelmed by the store - especially after having been to Trader Joe's and Whole Foods just a few days before the visit. I think the owners of the chain really didn't understand the market...

Another quick note - The Meetup Food Group started by Becke is going to meet at Anna's this Sunday for brunch! If you want meet new people who love food like you do - please join us!

Well that's it for the moment. Last weekend was Magifest and we spent the whole time taking people out to eat - the two favorites were Smackies and MiMi's. I could tell you a lot of the magicians we hung out with - but I am saving all my stories for blackmail material. Those of you who know what I am talking about - I need those checks in the mail soon!!

I swear, if I could tolerate bread right now, I'd so be at MiMi for a bahn mi. I'm having a big time craving.

I never understood the Sunflower Market thing either. The time I went, there were hardly any local products, and the prices were higher than Whole Foods (and that's saying a lot). Needless to say, we never returned. It's still not as bad as The Raisin Rack in Westerville, though - where they had moldy butter on the shelves and also oppressively high prices. Trader Joe's is by far my favorite.

I just wanted to thank you for telling us about General Tso's. My boyfriend and I went down to Columbus this weekend, and the food was great! Thanks again.

I was glad to hear you were brave and tried something "weird". Some fun of eating out is getting to try things you would never eat otherwise... If you guys are ever in town, drop me a line - we'll hook up and chew the fat!
