So much going on – where to begin?
Butterfield Gourmet is undergoing some changes, and I have to admit we’ve been surprised by some of them. Most of you know that Cafe Gourmet to Go, the shop that was hosting our business in Preston Commons, closed their doors permanently effective December 31. Since then we have been searching for a new home and I feel like we are getting close to finding a permanent or at least, semi-permanent location for us to work and you to pick up your meals.
This past week I received a call on Monday afternoon notifying Butterfield Gourmet that Artizone had shut down their online grocery delivery service – effective immediately! I have to admit that I was shocked. I was to be the Artisan of the month for February and I would celebrate my 4th anniversary on the site in May. Butterfield Gourmet had a really nice run on Artizone, and I was thrilled to have another avenue to reach customers. But we will move on and I am exploring new opportunities for product sales and delivery.
Today is SuperBowl Sunday! I like football (I’m rooting for Peyton); I enjoy the commercials (spoiler alert: there’s a tear-jerker for Moms!); But I really love the food (munchies, duh, my scene). We are having just a few people over but here’s what I’m contributing to our menu today:
Homemade Israeli Hummus with Naan wedges
Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins
Chips & Homemade Salsa and Queso
Southwestern Cornbread Salad
Sliced Cold Tenderloin with rolls and Horseradish Mayo
And after that over-indulgent meal, Chinese New Year’s celebrations begin tomorrow! There are just a couple of menu items this week that I am including for that purpose – a Spinach & Edamame Salad (green for wealth) and Asian BBQ Chicken Wings with Fried Rice (red for luck). It’s the year of the Monkey!
Valentine’s Day follows this weekend so let me know if you need any sweet treats for your sweetheart or your child’s class or teacher. Some ideas: individually packaged Heart Rice Krispie Treats, decadent S’mores Bark, white chocolate bark with Walnuts & Cherries, Chocolate Custard Pie, Red Velvet Brownies…the list is endless. Shoot me an email for details.
