What a great celebration of our new community partner this past Friday night! We hope y’all had as much fun square dancing as we did, but don’t worry if you missed it – we’ll definitely be having another! Looking ahead to this weekend, be sure to stop in before Sunday to find the perfect gift for the mother in your life. Or, bring her by on Sunday and treat her to a special “Moms and Mulberries” brunch featuring mulberries picked from our very own tree. Check below for more details!
Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
Looking for something for the mother in your life that’s in.love with local? Come by the shop this week – we’ve got lots to choose from!
This week’s specials are all about kebabs, an easy and delicious meal on the grill. With temperatures on the rise, get out of the kitchen and do some outdoor cooking.
Pour the marinade in a large resealable plastic bag. Set aside 1/2 cup for basting and refrigerate. Add beef to remaining marinade; turn to coat. Seal bag; refrigerate for 1 hour, turning occasionally.
Drain and discard the marinade. On metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternate beef, mushrooms, zucchini, potato, onions and squash. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side. Baste with reserved marinade. Continue turning and basting for 8-10 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Serve meat and vegetables over rice if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.
