Whirlwind rollercoaster 1/30-2/1/2020

A few quick things:

  • Want to receive this list via email each week? Sign up here.
  • We’ve got beef! Ground, chuck, steak, and bones!
  • Fresh pork for the week: shoulder roasts, tenderloins, kielbasa, and sweet Italian. Many more options available frozen, too!
  • On the veg front, colorful radishes abound, Napa cabbage is back, those adorable little gem romaine heads are here, and I’m looking forward to trying the baby tatsoi mix in salads and in quick sautes.
  • On a totally different note — with sadness, we bid farewell to Provisions this week. Thank you, Adam and Shaun, for bringing your vision of a neighborhood grocery to Harrisburg. You have been inspiring pioneers. While your business will be missed, we are so glad that you’re part of our community. Thank you.

Monday’s dinner — kale pasta, now with shredded chicken. And tons of shredded Royer Mountain.

I’m on a whirlwind roller coaster of very mundane things this week. Sort of mundane. Kind of fun. Looking at equipment. Meeting with fellow Circle School alumni. Having dinner with a pastry-chef-turned-vinegar-maker to pick his brain about equipment. Conference calling about 1095-B requirements for small employers within large self-insured groups. Drafting a revision to a healthcare benefit policy. Talking through Medicare and Social Security with my dad. More meetings. CELEBRATING GETTING OUR TEMPORARY CERTIFICATE OF OCCUPANCY. Dinner with my sister and her family. A focus group. And, oh yeah — all the normal ordering and planning and prepping for the market week. I’m so glad we have good help!

Anyway — that leaves me at 8:15 on Wednesday evening just now working on this newsletter, and Dusty’s telling me he’s ready to put the pizzas in the oven. I don’t want to hold that up, so —

See you at market!


P.S. The internet says that if you speak American English, “roller coaster” is two words, but in British English, it’s one. I like how it looks as one word (and how the faster articulation better matches my meaning) and I punctuate more like a Brit than an American, so I’m going with it as one word. And I’m telling you this in case you want to snipe at my proofreading skills. Dad. Larry. :-p
