    Sorry, I did not notice! But if you do have a library card from somewhere else, chances are they subscribe to some database where you can access WSJ and some other paywalled publications.

    It looks like if you access this through WSJ's Twitter post, you can read it for free.

    Mind blown. I had no idea!

    Thank you. Reading it now.

    You can also access a selection of magazines, Saveur and Cook's Illustrated are a couple of the food ones I look at.

    Aldi's $7.99 rose appeared in stores on Wednesday morning, and in most stores it was sold out in just a few hours. Did anybody get it?

    I have to pay for access to Cook's they got me there. When I travel I like to cook and it is basically my library.

    But Saveur would be cool. I dropped my subscription years ago because I found I read it but never made anything from it. That may now be enough satisfaction for me but at renewal time it was not.

    I was in the Clybourn store before noon that day. Another woman wanted it. The staff said someone came in at opening bell and bought 15 cases. The staff also knew that the store on Clybourn north of Fullerton was also out.

    I suggested to the woman she try an Aldi's location where oenophiles were less apt to have rolled through already, perhaps west or south sides of the city.
    I used to do this whenever Targét rolled out a capsule collection with some high end designer. I would leave my neighborhood for Targéts elsewhere that I figured the fashionistas wouldn't hit at opening bell. I scored lots of Rodarte's collection that way.

    Somebody on Craig's List was selling the wine for $35 a bottle. I am surprised they let her buy 15 cases of it. I've heard that the wine was not that good either.

    The people that don't like it that well, only like sweet wines, and rose is always dry.

    Somebody mentioned on mashupmom that there was a limit of six bottles of wine at Aldi's, and so somebody did not enforce it.

    Well perhaps I misunderstood her. Perhaps she said 15 cases was all they had and they went in a blink of an eye.

    I bought the Dutch Oven version of that enamel clad cast iron cookware a couple of years back. Cost about $35 IIRC. It's served me well, but the enamel on the outside does show some wear and chipping where it meets the cast iron grate above my stove's burners. Is that typical of all enamel covered cast iron, or does the more expensive stuff (i.e. Le Creuset) resist chipping? If the chipping is consistent with pricier brands, then the ALDI version is a hell of a buy; about 1/10th the price of a similar model sold through Sur La Table.

    Stollen?

    Aldi isn't on any of my regular routes so it is a bit of a journey to get to one.

    When can I expect them to get the Stollen in? I'm ready for my fix!

    It has been there for several weeks already. What I have not yet seen are the STroopwafels, which I have enjoyed in Holland.

    Monica Eng made a passing referred to Aldi offering a Salmon Poke. I found it over the weekend as a limited time offering. I shared it with my Mom for breakfast, because that's how we roll!

    I have been enjoying an Aldi stollen (Winternacht from Germany) for the past two mornings. I have also seen the Salmon Poke in an Aldi in Cincinnati this past weekend in one location but not in the blue collar neighborhood.
