Two other places to find that delicious corn on a stick, slathered in goodness: Tony's produce stand on 35th/Barton in West Seattle, and at a small stand just up the street from Loretta's on 14th Ave S. in South Park. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

No, stay away from the wonderful MacPherson’s! It is already getting too crowded.

$20/day? That's $600 a month! That's not cheap, that's hella expensive. If she had $10 you'd have had a story.

what about just going to the grocery store or farmers market and cooking for yourself with healthy, fresh, and local ingredients that you bargain hunted.

eating out in the midst of a recession / depression is NOT frugal, even if you can do it "cheaply" it is still not a better deal then empowering yourself and your friends/family to cook at home.

$20? Holy fuck.

I soak my own beans cuz they're cheaper than canned, dammit. Last night as I was kneading bread dough I was thinking about how I had used over $5 worth of ingredients on two loaves (which will be breakfast for almost two weeks) and how that was kinda spendy. If it costs more than $1.20 per pound, I rarely eat it.

$20! Gawd, I'm salivating just thinking about it. I could eat tofu every day! I'd feel like a queen! :D

Great tip on MacPherson's, though. I live on Beacon Hill, and I never noticed that place before. Dying to check out. Those are some crazy cheap cherries
