market shake up

the entire market is being turned on its head...fantastic.

tomorrow will see all of the changes put in to place. i will be at the opposite end of the market from my beloved nook where i've spent the past 3 1/2 years. please bear with me as i get situated but i can imagine tomorrow morning will be a bit of a gong show... the rage is brewing.

my location isn't the issue, i think it'll be a pretty high traffic zone - the dutchman, laughing whale, maritime nut company, ironworks distillery & pretty much every nova scotia winery will be my new neighbours. my issue is the lack of space. i know right now i won't be able to bring as much frozen food or cupcakes with me as usual. COME EARLY!

it's sort of shame because i made a ton of frozen food this week. there are 3 new main courses & plenty of variations to suit all your dietary restrictions.

first up: beef shepherd's pie. this one is pretty much a staple of my menu but i shouldn't diminish its awesomeness. the beef is from getaway, the sauce is based on my bbq sauce & the mashed potatoes are loaded with cheesy goodness. they're all gluten free and i made up paleo versions with sweet potato mash (& no corn).

then it was on to moroccan meatballs. again the beef is from getaway; it's seasoned up with lots of fun spices, garlic, ginger & coriander. it's served in a tangy tomato sauce with citrus, olives, dates, roasted peppers, sumac & fennel seed with a side of toasted almond & harissa quinoa. they're all gluten free & dairy free and i made up a paleo version too with extra veg instead of the quinoa.

and finally, it was time for a new batch of mediterranean vegetable ragu. the ragu is jam packed with grilled vegetables - baby eggplant, zucchini, red peppers, red onions - in a marinara sauce with feta, parmesan, goat cheese & swiss chard. it's served with a side of quinoa dressed with olive oil, roasted garlic & basil. it's vegetarian & gluten free.

salads this week are sweet potato, broccoli & potato. the broccoli is back to normal so it's no longer vegan...but still delicious, gluten free & paleo. the potato salad & sweet potato salads are both vegan & gluten free.

as always, they're $5 each.

oh yeah, the blog has fallen by the wayside of late, but here's a recap of a really delicious dish that i recently made. i started off by making a smokey, slightly spicy chilli with kidney beans, peppers, chipotle & citrus. then i stirred in big chunks of braised getaway farm pork shoulder that i cooked in a tomatillo sauce. then it was topped with cornbread crumble with nuggets of cheddar cheese & green onions. the feedback has been pretty stellar for this dish & i think it'll become a menu regular.

ok i'm out. it's already past midnight & i haven't even picked out an outfit for tomorrow!!!

ps: i'm sorry if i'm a big grump tomorrow.
