Good Gawd Awmightee

Dear Loyal Readers will recall that just a few scant weeks ago I was somewhat put out by the price of limes at our local grocery.

Well, tonight, since I caught an earlier flight home I called my Bride and told her I would stop by aforementioned ShopRong and get the ingredients to make one of my old standby recipes (only this time using tilapia in stead of the pamelas). As Close Readers will note, this recipe does require limes.

And this is what confronted me when I went to the Lime Section of the ShopRong

    But hey, at least they’re organic.

  2. Skyler says:

    Organic is a technical term for “contains more bugs” and a marketing term for “triple markup.”

    Buy normal, bug free lemons. Maybe that price is better, though the protein level is lower.

  3. Mr. Bingley says:

    Actually, Doc, the organic stuff was below. This was for generic pimply racquetball-sized limes.

    The lemons are getting crazy too, Skyler, though not yet at the lime-level.

    It’s the fault of the Koch Brothers & Big Citrus.

    We may have reached Peak Citrus, aelf

    They’re just doing the job American Limes won’t do.
