Holidays, y’all. They’re practically here. The joyous season of connecting with loved ones and feeding them. Feeding them what, however?
THANKSGIVING MEAL MENUS
Your Co-op has you covered. This season we are once again offering to cook your Thanksgiving meal for you (or with you—it’s really more of a partnership). Starting in October, we will have Thanksgiving meal menus available in the stores and online for your perusal. You can order full meals from us or just the side dishes you don’t feel like making yourself. We’ll have it packaged for you to pick up right before the holiday—ready for you to re-heat and serve! More details coming in October, so stay tuned.
LOCAL FRUIT PIES
Also coming to a Co-op near you in September and October—local fruit pies! Again, we feature local apple, pumpkin, and cherry pies. This year, we will be using organic crusts from Wholly Wholesome, both traditional and gluten-free (which is also vegan!). We think you will really enjoy these crusts; they are light and flaky! We might also have a surprise local pie. Can you guess what it will be?
A note to those of you interested in knowing more about our Deli and Bakery products—namely, their nutritional data. We don’t have a ready capacity to give you this information. What I’ve been able to offer some people, instead, is a copy of a recipe that they would like to know the nutritional information of as well as a link to a website where one can list recipe ingredients to produce a calculation of its nutritional data. As Owners, you are always welcome to make this request of us. Please, submit a customer comment online or in the store and we will be happy to provide you with the recipe you are seeking.
