This is not the update you're looking for

We're back. Though I did enjoy seeing the Quilt Show in Ilwaco, the pinball and fudge in Long Beach, the Ark at Nahcotta (uh, wait, no, that was overpriced and the food was dull), and the beach in Seaview, the most astounding enthusiasm I whipped up all weekend was ... in the dollar store in Astoria, Oregon. The bargains were FANTASTIC and I brought back three bags of "stuff" for $19. Here's the list of what I bought (pretty much all bargain food items):
J. Di. Hussong's Baja Red Chile Colorado salsa - 99¢
El Pato tomato sauce ("Mexican Hot Style") - 25¢ (bought two)
Buena Comida Enchilada Sauce - 99¢ (bought a can of green and red)
Near East rice mix, 49¢ (Long Grain & Wild Rice, Toasted Almond, and Spanish style)
Hodgson Mill's Mexican Style Jalapeno Cornbread Mix - 79¢ (this will make great stuffing for a chicken)
Bootsie's South Louisiana Cooking Cajun Style Blackeye Peas - 49¢ (bought two)
Lopez Island Farm Apple Marmalade - $1.49
Crosse & Blackwell Major Grey's Chutney - 99¢
Kozlowski Farms "Sonoma County Classics" South of the BOrder Dressing - 99¢
Annie's Naturals ORganic Red Wine and Olive Oil Vinaigrette - 99¢
Atkins Quick Quisine Lemon Poppyseed Dressing - 25¢
(Some bottle of no calorie marinara sauce that we ate before we left)
Mark's Jamaica Jerk All-purpose marinade - 99¢
Santa Barbara Califorian Pepper Sauce, Taco Style - 99¢
Sylvia, Queen of Soul Food's Kicking Hot Hot Sauce - 49¢
The very best thing? Annie's Naturals Cowgirl Ranch Dressing - 99¢! I think I have the basis to plan menus for a month now!

I also brought home quilt making materials, a new book (Tanizaki's The Key, previously owned by a doctor who lived three blocks away from my house - what a shock! and to think there's nothing but Seattle University there now!), a little piece of cranberry fudge, and a well-rested me, because we slept in both days and had little to distract us. That said, I think closing the weekend with a pint at the Comet would be just what the doctor ordered. I'm three days behind in my flist reading, so as usual please let me know if you have anything I should have read and missed ....
