New stuff, king salmon and a couple of good ideas

Hi Folks-

I feel bad for the farmers but it seems like maybe the sun is making a halfhearted attempt to start pulling its weight this summer! Let’s hope so.

A dear customer came in today and couldn’t wait to tell me what he had done and he was right, rock star material. He bought the Chicken and Sausage gumbo from the cold case, bought half a dozen shrimp, cooked them up and mixed it together and on one of the hottest nights we’ve had, made a shrimp gumbo that had him cruising to New Orleans in his mind. I’m pretty sure there were some delta blues or honky-tonk playing too.

We have some fun new products in the store. Lark shortbreads, a charming little box of three flavors of mini cookies – their bestselling Salted Rosemary, the fennel-spiced Burnt Sugar and the energy-revving, 100% whole wheat Espresso Chip. So check those out.

I brought in a seasoned bread crumb for fish or chicken (or a pork chop I suppose if you are going old school), crispy and spicy or extra crispy. They are wonderful and happen to be gluten free!

My favorite, which I haven’t had yet but am super excited about is the Urban Accents Korean BBQ simmer sauce. Urban Accents does flavor really well, so if this is up to their usual standards you have a game changer available. Simmer sliced meat, whole cuts, veggies in the sauce and you automatically win at making dinner taste good. Of course you could also use a little in your stir fry, or maybe cream it with a little butter and brush it on your grilling corn or splash it on at the very end of grilling your chicken. You bet I’ll be doing all those things :-).

For those that care we are still eating in a reasonable fashion (formerly known as a diet). I am most frustrated with desserts, not because I particularly care about dessert but this is the time of year to make blueberry buckles and strawberry short cake and fruit pies and you know…. So I probably need to head to a party, bring a couple of fab desserts and sneak a taste or two. Trying to be practical here.
