    Those of you that frequent the Central Rally probably met Brownsvillian at some point. Jesse passed away today after a long bout with cancer. Linky

    I never met him but from what I've read about him and the thoughts and prayers from his friends he must have been one heck of guy...

    Every day is a blessed gift.

    God speed....

    There's a new shop in town. They sell nothing but olive oil and vinaigrette. :huh I don't see how they can stay in business.


    Maybe it's a money-laundering operation.

    She seems a little herbally induced(look at them eyes). The oils has that funny herb in it and you can dip the bread to staify the munchies too.:D She just jumping on the micro-brewery bandwagon to get the different laced wacky-weed flavors out there.:wink::rofl

    I have the Explorer kit w/front ski on the XR650 but no snow(go figure). I will need to put the front wheel back on to goof around til the white stuff comes back.

    Klay,
    That's the latest trend in franchising. You have some local small business investors making a run to embrace a niche and trendy market. I did a TV spot for the "Olive Grove" in Mendota Heights. Product is pretty good actually. Prices can't compete with the big box but the quality sure does.

    Since I got the wok, I've been going through a bottle of grapeseed oil about every two months.

    The average household likes to eat mcdonalds and papa johns pizza. This place exists to provide high quality oils to people with taste (and tastebuds).

    Olive oil and vinaigrette, both good stuff. I would likely combine them with food that I would serve on my square plates. Not to you lot though, you bloody heathens.

    I think they used to sell their products out of the Cheese Cave in Faribault.

    Seems like a bad business model to me but never listen to what I say about that shit.

    I thought coffee shops would be the biggest flop ever. :norton

    You want $5 for a cup of coffee :huh

    Have you been to Treasure Cave cheese store on main street in Faribault? Nice selection of cheeses. IIRC, it's a wine bar too. They also may carry them fancy oils as well! Not the manliest store in the world... just sayin...

    I don't believe I have ever gone through a whole bottle of olive oil.....ever.

    I despise McDonalds!

    Last night for supper was an excellent baked, noodle and pasta sauce dish with home grown ground pork in it. It even had three cheeses on top! Mozzarella, cheddar, and Parmesan. The pork was unseasoned to boot.

    It was so good that I brought left overs of it to work today.
