If your mother does guilt like mine does, you’re also about to panic, because the specific strain of guilt trip planted and cultivated during the weeks preceding Mother’s Day is really the mother of them all.
How could you not come home for Mother’s Day?
Here are ten (or so) foodie gifts that allow you to send a little Seattle home to mom right from the safety of your desk, so you don’t have to actually go see her yourself:
6. Portlock, the fish company rumored to have supplied its delicious smoked salmon to European royals, also sells to us commoners.
7. Check out Theo Chocolate’s line of organic, fair trade chocolate-covered confections – grown-up takes on kid flavors like peanut butter and jelly might be just the perfect way to finally apologize for throwing away all those damn sack lunches.
8. Taylor Shellfish (the folks who sell oysters, mussels, and clams at the U District and Ballard farmer's markets, among others) also ships just about anywhere. Oysters and champagne, anyone? Sounds like a great way to apologize to Mom for something much more serious. Like not speaking to her for a few years, maybe.
9. Or perhaps you’d like to send her a less friendly message. Exotic Meats moved to Texas recently, but you can still send her some rattlesnake. Delicious and nutritious, tastes just like chicken.
