What's New in the Store Today

For your salad-making pleasure, 8-ounce wedges of crumbly, gorgonzola cheese are now in stock.  This pairs well with salads made with any combination of fresh greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, pears, walnuts, grilled steak, and drizzled with balsamic or raspberry vinegar dressing or Garlic Expressions dressing,  We have plenty of vine-ripened tomatoes, lettuce, and many flavors of vinegar and salad dressings to go with this delicious cheese.

For your picnic-style meals, Yoder's mustard potato salad arrived today and we still have cole slaw on hand as well as six-ounce, choice-grade ball-tip sizzler steaks, bratwurst, kielbasa, smoked sausage, salmon, and wieners.   Don't forget the chips, iced tea, sparkling grape juice, and lemonade!

If you are headed to a picnic or the winery, please know that in addition to bars of sharp cheddar cheese from Wisconsin, and Ohio Farmer's Cheese, we now offer an Ohio "Fiesta Jack" cheese from Holmes county.  It is a marbled, Colby-Monterey Jack cheese with lots of jalapeno peppers.   What a festive-looking and tasty cheese, and just the right size, when sliced, to fit on a cracker or pop right into your mouth! 

You can find two flavors of hummus in the deli section.  All natural recipes of roasted red pepper hummus or the classic hummus flavored only with garlic and lemon.   For those unfamiliar with this tasty dip, it is a healthy and simple a mixture of ground garbanzo beans (chick peas), ground sesame seeds (tahini), ground garlic, fresh lemon juice, a little olive oil, and a little salt.   It is very easy to make at home, with or without a blender.  Sometimes other ingredients include hot or sweet peppers, olives, tomatoes, black pepper, feta cheese.   It is traditionally served as an appetizer in Mediterranean cuisines with flat bread for dipping.    Pita chips, pretzel crisps, and baby carrots are nice for dipping in hummus!  It can also be used as an ingredient in a "pinwheel" style wrap, especially good with chopped parsley and tomatoes rolled up into the flatbread sandwich.

Other new items this week include grape juice, sparkling grape juice, caramel-cone-sundae ice cream, toasted-almond-fudge ice cream,  dark-chocolate covered raisins, all-white-meat chicken salad, ham salad, and single servings of tilapia fillets (flash frozen seafood). 

Many people have been making lasagna lately.  Stop by for ricotta cheese, no-boil lasagna noodles, many choices if sauces, fresh tomatoes, as well as grated mozzarella, sliced provolone, parmesan wedges, and cheddar cheese.

Lastly, greeting cards are still on sale!  Remember Mother's Day this coming Sunday!

Hope to see you soon!   If you have a favorite recipe using gorgonzola cheese, please stop by and share!
