Whole Foods, you aren't helping the ignorance surrounding Sweet Potatoes. You correctly label Garnets and Jewels as sweet potatoes (as they are) and then label the Hannah as a yam. Above is a sign that describes somewhat correctly the difference between a sweet potato and a yam so it looks like they almost researched it before putting up the signs. 

Just in case you're curious they're all sweet potatoes. We have no commercial crop of yams in America and I'd bet that most people have never seen one before. If you question this just look at the box they came in, by law they have to say what they really are (usually in small letters).

Cash and Carry had full brisket for $2.29/lb so I figured I'd take advantage of the situation. Winco has smokehouse spice blend (very similar to McCormick's Smokehouse maple in flavor, but not texture) for $4/lb. Most spice blends like McCormicks sell for $16/lb on sale and I've seen it as high as $24/lb. So I have $20 worth of meat and spice that will go in an offset smoker with hickory in a bit. Sometimes tonight it will be ready.

Thought I'd put up the Thai Red Curry. It's easy, fast and due to the quality of Mae Ploy curry paste feels like cheating.

Your wine grape trivia for the day...

In Croatia there is this grape called Crljenak Kaštelanski. When Hapsburg Austria ran the place they took some cuttings and put them in the Imperial Nursery in Vienna, and from there were sent to a horticulturist in Long Island, who sent some vines out to Califoria, where Italian immigrants working the gold rush appreciated the grape’s sturdy, robust style and planted them with enthusiasm, only to abandon their vineyards when the gold rush fizzled out.  These vineyards, and their mystery grapes, were then rediscovered years later with the post-prohibition wave of California winemakers.

Since they didn't know what kind of grape they were they made up a name - Zinfandel.  Back in Croatia the Crljenak Kaštelanski grape was crossed with the Dobričić to make what is possibly Croatia's most famous wine grape - Plavac Mali. I'm going to investigate this summer.

o more Grade B maple syrup. They're now going to give maple syrup names like "Golden Color and Delicate Taste" or "Amber Color and Rich Taste" as if someone couldn't look at the color and figure that out. My new category will be "Very Dark Color and Strong Taste".
The B rating is a thing of the past—but there’s still the full range of tastes and colors to try.

I'm headed out to listen to Michael Pollan speak at Benaroya Hall in Seattle tonight. Should be interesting.

A very interesting article on food trucks and the economics of how they're run. Very interesting and I recommend reading it. Makes me want to go out and pick up a truck to run (and lobby the Seattle City council) to allow me to park it anywhere useful.

How to eat well during a recession
Introduction
You don't have to choose between eating well and saving money. Exchanging time, knowledge and effort you can eat great while spending less money. Using food subsidies, shopping wisely and careful planning a family can eat great meals like you'd get in a restaurant for $2.50 per person. Breakfast and lunch are even cheaper. For $5 per person you can make virtually anything you want.
