Now I know why...I drive by all the time! I just checked it out on Yelp and they get rave reviews. I'll definitely be stopping in!

It's on Petaluma Hill Road; I think they have a website and they've got reviews on Yelp, I believe.

Most of their stuff is frozen, but everything I've gotten from there has been good. They process animals that people bring in so you do see the process facilities, if that sort of thing bothers you. They've got all sorts of stuff there though. It was a while before we stopped in because you drive up in there and think "Where the hell am I going" because it's down a really long driveway.

I ate the egg my mom accidentally broke while bringing the carton back from the store and then I fixed myself a raw kale salad with a sliced Braeburn apple, slivered almonds and balsamic vinaigrette. I ought to do this more often! I'm a good salad maker.

A quick soup (water, romaine, white soybeans, garlic, hot pepper flakes, olive oil, lots of salt).
Lemon basil meltaways for dessert. First I dropped a third cup of powdered sugar on the floor. Then I dropped a tablespoon of cornstarch down the front of me and onto the floor. The kitchen and I are lookin good. But the cookies are tasty!

Those cookies look delish...never heard of them before...how do you make them? Also, your soup sounds so intriguing...romaine, as in lettuce? I wish you had a pic of that, too

Here is the recipe for the cookies. I think I got it from a Martha Stewart magazine many years ago. I usually make them with lavender but I was out so I used basil this time. They are light and delicate and great with tea.

LEMON LAVENDER MELTAWAYS
1 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks (6 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
Finely grated zest from 2 lemons, preferably organic
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tsp dried lavender (basil or rosemary works well too)

Whisk together the flour, cornstarch, and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high, beat the butter and 1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar until light and fluffy. Add the lemon zest and juice and vanilla and mix until fluffy. Reduce the speed to low, add the flour mixture, and mix just until combined.
Divide the dough in half and shape each portion into a log about 1 1/4 inches in diameter. (To do this with ease, place each portion of dough on an 8-by-12-inch sheet of parchment paper and then roll to form a log 1 1/4 inches in diameter.) Refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 350F (176C). Cut each log into 1/4-inch-thick rounds, no thicker. Place the rounds on parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing them about 1 inch apart. Bake the cookies until pale golden, 10-15 minutes. Cool on sheets til they firm up a little.
When the cookies are no longer hot but still warm, gently toss a few of them at a time with the remaining 2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar in a plastic bag or a brown paper bag. (Mind you, the cookies are delicate. Use caution.) Return the cookies to the racks, and cool completely. Store in airtight container.

As for the soup, it's just a simple old Italian peasant recipe called menest. It's usually made with escarole but I prefer romaine. Most people use white beans or cannellini beans. I use soybeans because my sister's boyfriend is a soybean farmer so she gives me tons of them.

Just brown chopped garlic in a little olive oil, add water and all the other ingredients and cook til the greens are tender.

You can also add pepperoni or italian sausage, tho I prefer mine meatless.

Went to the firehall for wings. I had hot buffalo and thai chili. The boyfriend had dry ranch and honey bbq. Home cut fries, raw veggies, and their great ranch dressing. Hit the spot.

Last night was a baked chicken breast and a large salad. Tonight is pulled BBQ sandwiches, slaw and home fries.

I might whip up some brownies for a sweet treat.

Pie!!!

Because I'm lame like that - (I'm trying to make mini-pies so I can take some to work as well).

Mixed-berry/rhubarb. I love any fruit pie with rhubarb, I wish I could get saskatoon berries right now though - that would hit the spot something fierce!

(the best part about being an adult is you can eat pie as your meal on Pi day and get away with it)

I made shrimp scampi, it's the only thing I can cook well.

OMG THESE PRETZEL ROLLS ARE SO DELICIOUS. I must make my mom buy an unlimited supply I can have when I leave.
