Broccoli and shiitake mushroom (locally grown!) quiche.
New local awesome honey in stock. Ackroyd's honey has expanded their line, buckwheat, blueberry, linden/basswood, wildflower, dandelion and ultra creamy with cinnamon. In case you are wondering they actually take bee hives to fields of blueberries (east coast) or fields of dandelions etc to get these specific honey flavours. Cool aye!

Had a craving this week for some butter chicken so we made a batch big enough to share. Also The Beefway came through with some yummy corned beef so we have Reubens again made with organic sauerkraut or kimchi and Pine River Swiss.

Paisley is CELEBRATING this Saturday night! Our school is sticking around - thanks to many wonderful volunteers that took on the enormous battle - dug up facts and figures, joined forces with our Municipal staff, organized many meetings, and rallies, wrote and presented proposals, designed and ordered posters and banners and so much more. There is still work to be done moving forward but for now it's time to honour these heroes so we are having a party with a live band and awesome nibbles. What an awesome community to live and work in.
