Very sincere March weather out there. I inadvertently sent Sophia to school today when there was a two hour delay. She came back in about five minutes (we live very close) and said “Grandma there is nobody there!” Whoops, we couldn’t figure out why there was a delay until we headed out later and the sidewalks were definitely still glazed with a bit of ice.
This weather has called my slow cooker right back to the front of my mind. Here’s a link that I refer to all the time by the Huffington Post.52 slow cooker recipes! The photos up top are the slow cooker ramen bowl recipe from that site and the simple beef ragu we did last Friday which was very good. I can almost always find something that sounds good and I have yet to make them all. I think my next one is going to be the coconut curry chicken.
We have started to carry more local eggs (although all of our eggs are from Vermont) some from Butterfield Beef and Berry Farm in East Calais and some from Tangletown Farm in West Glover. While pricier than the Maple Meadow eggs I can say that there is a difference and the eggs are fabulous! Check out Tangletown Farm .
Our next Art Walk is coming up and I am looking for one or two artists to hang in the store for this. We have several nice areas to hang work and I keep the work up until the next Art Walk. If you know someone who might be interested or are interested yourself please feel free to respond to this email address and I’ll get in touch. I need to have decided by (and have some digital information by April 8th).
