weekend update

it looks as though my weekend at the market may be cut short this week. just checked the forecast and i will not be heading in on sunday if we get the forecast 20 cm of snow.

i will be there tomorrow for sure, so if you need treats for new year's parties... or for the morning after, make sure to pop by.

this week i finally had time to make that batch of lobster mac & cheese.

the lobsters were caught by my neighbour and i watched them come in on wednesday - pretty local indeed. this batch is positively loaded with goodies. there's tons of lobster, tons of foxhill curds, parmesan, mozzarella, oven-dried tomatoes, leek bechamel & roasted garlic.
small $12  large $24

last week i sold out of the chicken & leek pies but everything else on the menu remains unchanged. i have a 20 pound shani's farm turkey in the freezer so next week i'll work on lots more poultry options for the menu.

i have a feeling the market won't be crazy busy this week so i'm cutting back on salad production a little. this week there will be broccoli, sweet potato & quinoa. this will be the last week for a while with this festive version of the quinoa - fennel, grapefruit, olive, pomegranate & parsley so get your fix while you can.

ok, on to baked goods. the cookies are still a bit more 'breakfasty' with cinnamon, flax & pumpkin seeds. there will also be snickers brownies, maple walnut shortbreads, candy cane cheesecakes, eggnog cheesecakes, passionfruit tarts, pumpkin tarts & cheddar cornbread muffins.

cupcakes will be lemon, red velvet, chocolate, carrot, banana & gingerbread. i'm getting a little tired of this lineup so if anyone has cupcake suggestions or requests please send them along.

alrighty time to bake. hope to see everyone tomorrow & maybe sunday, but if not drive safe & happy new year!
