141What’s hiding at the back of your freezer? On second thought, we don’t want to know. Just clean it out so you can fill up that space with awesome meals from Eat Local. Possibly the best thing to happen to your busy family’s eating habits since the advent of the freezer itself, Eat Local offers chef-prepared, gourmet meals made with local, organic ingredients, cooked in small batches and frozen for convenience. We could eat the roasted apricot chicken (single, $9.98, 4-6 serving, $32.98) every night for a month straight. Equally yummy: ravioli lasagna, pot pies, chicken cacciatore, Yakima Valley asparagus risotto, mac and cheese, lemongrass tofu, and pizzas. Servings come from single size (your sitter will love you for it) to jumbo 8-12 serving size, perfect for your next dinner party. Soups, sides, salads, and desert are also deliciously tempting and make it so easy to round out your meal. Kids will love the all-natural juices, and the jams, chocolates, and dried fruit from Woodrings. And Baby is not left out! Lil-Locals ($2.48 each; $1.00 off six ore more) are baby food done right, pure squash, broccoli, carrots, applesauce, cauliflower, or yams. Full menu available on web site. Out favorite day to go? Every third Thursday from 6:00 pm for Queen Anne’s new Art Walk. Stock up; you’ll be so glad you did. Even June Cleaver would approve.

PS – Thursday, September 20, is a special Art Walk night at Eat Local. Northwest artist Nikki McClure, whose gorgeously simple and whimsical work is always on display at the store, will be there showing her private collection.
