le sigh

what a week! i have a feeling i'm going to be saying that every friday for about the next six weeks. this year i vowed to be ready for the holiday rush and that's what has been keeping me busy.

my inventory is at crazy levels right now; i'm trying to figure out how to be in three places at once; and i got new signage & gift certificates done up.

the gift certificates will be available as of tomorrow, they have no expiry date, they can be made out for any denomination, and they make an excellent gift ;) next on my to do list, get my visa & mastercard setup straightened out...

ok back to food. this week i focused on replenishing the classics.
there's a new batch of beef shepherd's pie with getaway farm beef, peas, carrots, corn & cheddar mashed potatoes.
small $10 large $20

there's also a new batch of the asian-inspired pulled pork with soy, ginger, garlic, sesame, chillies, roasted broccoli, bean sprouts & rice.
small $10 large $20

i also made a new batch of the hearty chicken stew with shani's farm chicken, rutabaga (that i grew myself mind you)...

 ...carrots, parsnips, sprouts, herbs & this batch has noodles instead of potatoes per request from a chicken stew aficionado. 
$7 for 500ml

the salads are broccoli, 4-bean & quinoa. the broccoli and 4-bean are the usual but the quinoa has gone back to mediterranean this week with olives, artichokes, fennel, tomatoes, basil, arugula & oregano.

there's the usual assortment of cupcakes, squares, cookies, rolls, brownies and cheesecakes with the addition of the streusel-topped apple tarts i made for thanksgiving. they'll be topped with a dollop of maple whipped cream.

oh yeah, on top of all this, i'm catering for 60 on monday (acccckkkk!!!!) so i may have to duck out a little early on sunday from the market to prep. make sure to come early.
ok time for sleep!
