Parking, po’Boys and A Wine Tasting!!

Hi Folks-

Happy belated Mother’s Day! I had a lovely one thanks to family and it left me energized for the week. Which is good because George is on vacation and I am filling in for him on the am deli Monday and Tuesday.

Quick note on Parking…There are a bunch of signs saying no parking on School Street but is only after 6:30 pm so please feel free to park during the day!

Lots of fun stuff today. Big news. We are doing a Summer Wine Tasting! Mark the date, Saturday June 24th at a private home in Montpelier from 3 to 7. These are wonderful events, with 30 wines to taste, tons of fabulous food and a deep 12% discount on wines ordered that day. Tickets are $25.00 a person and this is a very fun thing to go to with a friend. Tickets will be available at the Market on Friday May 19th.

Soft shells are here again and while you can’t beat just frying them in butter here’s Mark Bittman’s soft shells with pasta which I love. You can also do a nice po’boy with them. I had friends over and did “on the fly” shrimp po’boys on Saturday. Defrosted the Shrimp, mixed ½ cup of flour with a ¼ cup cornstarch, two egg yolks, a hint of baking powder and a little cold water to thin it. Dunk the shrimp and then fry in at least 2 inches of oil. Grilled a roll, made a remoulade ish kind of thing out of mayo, pickles, capers and sirracha. Delish.

New cookies at the store. Peter and I are going on a much needed reboot to our eating system, which we will commence next week (Clean anyone?). Until then, however, the chocolate hazelnut biscotti are completely fair game, so delicious!
