I live in West Seattle, and have begun occasionally going to the Burien GO, as just across from the nice library there.

A few days ago, I went in to check for fancy cheeses, and was also hoping for frozen fruit for my morning yogurt or smoothie routine...

Score! Got a lovely chunk of ricotta salata for 4.49lb - the real deal from Italy. Also an individual 9 oz. brie in the little wooden box for $1.99! I opened the box and pealed back the paper wrapper just a wee bit to check rind quality before buying. Happy to report, very good. Ate on a baguette after warming to room temp. They had about 50 of them on the shelf in cheese section.

Yogurt find; there were at least 40 1 1lb. containers of Brown Cow brand 0% fat Greek Yogurt; 50. cents each! Got 3... had not had this brand of Greek Yogurt, but have seen it as an up-market brand other places so had high hopes. Good, not as good as Fage (one of my fav's), but perhaps that is 'cause I usually get low fat, not non...

Last big find, 2 lb. bag of frozen freestone peaches for $1.99 in the freezer case near ice cream, etc. Happy to report they have good flavor. Eating on my non-fat greek yogurt with a little honey for breakfast this week. Yogurt and peaches are costing me about 10 cents a serving!

Lastly, picked up a 5 lb. bag of organic Yukon Gold potatoes, med size, from OR for $1.50!

Didn't do much more of a look-see this time, as still eating out of freezer from too much stock up over the holidays.

What are your great finds at this chain?
