Katy and Sophia went on a great adventure last night. Katy drove Sophia and a friend to Boston to a Pentatonix concert at TD Garden. They returned home at about 2a.m. and I’m proud to say they were on time for school and for work. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Pentatronix, they’re an acapella group who are simply fantastic – you should look them up. YouTube has videos of them performing.
Sharon felt we needed a really nice dinner last night and she broiled Shetland Salmon, which is always the best, and lightly sauteed spinach with shallots and garlic and green onions. She also roasted delacotta squash from 1000 Stone Farm that was out of this world and fried disks of polenta in olive oil and butter. The dinner was superb and reassured us both that food and love are still the most important things in these troubled times.
Sharon has ordered Vermont raised bone in pork chops for the store and they’ll be available tomorrow. We’ve long offered natural alternatives for beef and chicken, but haven’t yet moved from the Western raised pork that we’ve offered. It’s more expensive, of course, but the quality can’t be beat.
There was not a diverse selection of fish for tomorrow but what is coming in will be excellent, as always. If you’ve never tried it before, grill a fillet of bluefish for something new, or bake a whole rainbow trout maybe with a little herb dressing. Remember – Food and Love.
Fish arriving tomorrow:
- Alaskan Cod, flash frozen at sea
- Alaskan Sockeye Salmon, frozen at sea
- Dayboat yellow tail sole
- Sustainable Shetland Salmon
- Dayboat Haddock
- Whole 10 oz. rainbow trout
