WAX POETIC

OCTOBER 14. . . SOMETIMES GOOD food and great recipes call forth buttery language, and now I think we’ve been contacted by the health food laureates. http://wildernesspoets.com is a business in Amboy, WA specializing in organic nuts, seeds, butters, cacao, vanilla, and more, and the recipes that go with them! Check out their website, and you’ll see what I mean. I immediately placed an order for several boxes of their snack sized nut and seed butters, and a few trail mixes. I expect the order to arrive Wednesday or Thursday. Be sure to try some, and look at other products from Wilderness Poets that you might like.

GOODSTUFF Cacao is on the way–ETA Thursday or Friday because of the Columbus Day holiday. Sami’s should arrive Wednesday as usual. CSA pickup is Wednesday between 1 and 5.

IF YOU’VE been waiting on Hydrate water, it’s here. So are the grapeseed oil, olive oil, avocado oil, Pamela’s mixes, dried cranberries, almond butter, walnuts, pecans, and Bragg’s.

WHAT’S ON THURSDAY’S TRUCK? Look in the fridge for Farmhouse Culture kraut pouches and Vegenaise on sale; organic almonds and organic medjool dates should be back on the fruit/nut/seed shelf; 3# frozen wild blueberries are reported to be back in stock, and I remembered to order some kombucha and Kevita. Lots of other goodies come as usual.

DESTINY ORGANICS delivers fresh organic produce Friday, so let us know before Thursday lunchtime if there’s something in particular you’d like to have.

ARE WE NUTS?

OCTOBER 7. . . .IT SEEMS WE need to take out a bank loan to afford organic nuts these days. Squirrels we must be though, because organic pecans and walnuts are on our order list this week. Organic filberts, pistachios, and peanuts are plentiful in the store. Raw pumpkin seeds and organic flax seeds are also en route, while hemp, organic sunflower, chia, and sesame seeds are in stock.

RESTOCKS EXPECTED: Barlean’s flax oil, ground flax, greens powder; Saifan olive oil soap; NOW almond flour, Xyliwhite toothpastes, essential oils; Granola Naturals peanut butter bars and peanutty nuggets; Historic Springs Hydrate water (hopefully!)

CSA ORDERS arrive Wednesday.
Sami’s arrives Wednesday.

ORGANIC PRODUCE THURSDAY: gala apples (I think I told people Fujis–sorry), carrots, red bell peppers, spinach, sunflower sprouts, tomatoes, cress.
ALSO HAPPENING THURSDAY: “Growing Healthy Mushrooms” at the King Family Library, 5:30-7:00pm. It’s hosted by our friends the Brewers and bound to be worthwhile to attend.

ORGANIC PRODUCE FRIDAY: lettuce, celery, grapefruit, potatoes, sweet potatoes, more.

SPLIT PEAS, raw buckwheat groats, avocado oil, Wild Planet sardines, and Julie’s organic icecream are among the products expected in this week. I haven’t been able to get organic dried cannelini beans for some months, but I can get Eden 108oz cans of them–just let me know if you want one.

There’s something for every nut at Rabbit Food.

GOOD TIME TO STASH

SEPTEMBER 30. . . JUDGING BY THE volume of special orders this week, there are customers with the wherewithall to make like squirrels and start stashing for the winter. It’s a great time for it–during the month of October, UNFI has deals on some of our favorites.  Be sure to check the sales catalogue next time you’re in the store, and remember that bulk orders always get better pricing!

WEDNESDAY. . . PICK UP your CSA bag if you ordered.  Come in for Sami’s bread (the pita goes quickly).  Shop in the peace of a Wednesday afternoon at Rabbit Food, and then wander over to our new neighbor, Cathy’s Beauty Supply, and browse around.

THURSDAY. . . .LOADED is the only way to describe our truck this week: gluten-free products including cookies, pizza, pasta, and bread; Dr. Bronner’s coconut oil, Napa Valley Naturals olive oil, grapeseed oil; Bragg apple cider vinegar and Braggberry dressing on sale; grapeseed Vegenaise on sale; smoked paprika, Herbamare seasoning, black pepper, cinnamon, almond extract, vanilla extract; and that barely scratches the surface. Organic produce from Albert’s will include MacIntosh apples, sunflower sprouts, baby spinach, cherry tomatoes.

We also expect an order from NOW Foods so will be restocked with pine nuts, almond flour, maple syrup, and more good things.

FRIDAY. . . .DESTINY DELIVERS on Fridays.  Count on organic celery, lettuce, lemons, grapes and more.

CURRENTLY IN STOCK: juicy and sweet organic oranges, perfect organic pears, the  best organic pineapples, good organic ginger and garlic, crisp and tight organic red and organic green cabbages, freshly roasted Three Bears coffee, a variety of organic rices and rice blends, and more!

The food just tastes better from Rabbit Food.

ORGANIC PRODUCE THURSDAY: avocados (small, from CA), bananas, carrots, cauliflower, garlic, white nectarines, red bell peppers, pineapples, baby spinach, sunflower sprouts, cress.
Organic fruit is in good supply as we still have great pears, oranges, and grapefruit in stock. Red grapes are on Destiny’s list; hopefully they’ll still have some for Friday delivery. It will also be nice to have some more raw goat cheddar back in stock.

UNFI TRUCK: we have good deals on Late July organic peanut butter or cheese crackers, Field Day organic diced peach or pear cups, Field day shampoos and conditioners, Artisana organic coconut butter, and Quest bars. I remembered to order the Kalona organic cottage cheese this week, along with Wallaby organic sour cream and Sustainable Seas tuna.
REQUESTED FROM DESTINY: our Friday delivery of organic produce should include lettuce, Atlanta Fresh yogurt cream cheese, (Mmmm :), red grapes, russet potatoes, sweet potatoes, and. . .
All in all, it’s looking like another good week at Rabbit Food.

OUR BIG DAY

SEPTEMBER 16. . . .OUR FIRST CSA delivery will be tomorrow at 1pm.  If you have an order arriving, come early and meet Stephen and Theresa while they’re here. If you don’t have an order, come anyway, and see what this is all about.  It’s the best Rabbit Food adventure in ages!

FROZEN BLUEBERRIES:  What are they?  We haven’t seen any in stock for several weeks, but they are not listed as out of stock this week.  Wow.  I’m looking forward to seeing the freezer stocked again.

COBBLE CREEK delivered today.  We now have plenty of meat in the freezer.  The ground beef price has increased by about 90c/lb.

SAMI’S BREAD arrives tomorrow.  Extra millet and flax pita is ordered–hopefully, there’ll be enough for everyone who wants to try some.

GOOD STUFF CACAO is also en route.  This week, I’ve ordered some of the new trail mix with Himalayan salt variety along with the other Good Stuff flavors.  These make great gifts.

ORGANIC PRODUCE THURSDAY: gold apples, red cabbage, limes, baby spinach, sunflower sprouts, cress, garnet yams.

HIGHLIGHTS  from the UNFI order include, as well as the frozen wild blueberries: organic pistachios, organic garlic granules, Redwood Hill goat yogurt, and large bags of Pamela’s gluten-free mixes–bread, pancake, artisan flour blend, pizza crust.

A SELECT NUTRITION order is coming, with Sambucol elderberry syrups (yep, it’s that share-a-virus time again), stevia clear liquid, liquid iodine, and more.

FRIDAY IS ALWAYS Destiny delivery day.  I’ll be ordering more organic potatoes, organic lemons, organic lettuce, organic celery, organic cabbage, and other goodies.

Come to Rabbit Food and have a big day.

IT’S A DEAL!

SEPTEMBER 9. . . .Garden Delivery CSA comes to Sevierville!  The first delivery to Rabbit Food will be on Wednesday,  September 17 around 1pm.  If you want to be included, email Stephen and Theresa: gardendelivery@gmail.com  You will be sent information, a list of what’s going to be available next week, and your job will be to email back your order by Monday night and pick up fresh, locally-grown, pesticide-free garden produce sometime between 1pm and 5pm on Wednesday (or call Lisa if you’re running late).

Q: How good is this?

A: Let me just begin to count the ways:

  • High quality food–it’s pesticide-free and grown by local farmers.
  • Low food miles–unlike the produce I order from out-of-state distributors, this produce is not shipped hundreds or thousands of miles.
  • We’ll be able to buy produce that, due to lack of refrigeration plus too many food miles, I rarely or never order (e.g. cucumbers, zucchini, green beans, etc.)
  • It’s a sustainable way to eat real food and it supports small farmers.
  • You only have to order if, when, and what you want!

THE SAMI’S DEBACLE: After raving about the millet and flax pita last week, Sami’s mistakenly sent us some white wheat pita :(  Hopefully, that will get straightened out this time.  Let’s see what tomorrow brings. . . .

NOW FOODS ON THE WAY:  the NOW order is in and should arrive by Thursday.  If you’re waiting on guar gum, glucomannan, almond flour, pine nuts, or nutritional yeast, watch for the NOW order.

THURSDAY

ORGANIC PRODUCE: avocados, gold supreme apples, carrots, ginger, nectarines, watercress, sunflower sprouts, baby spinach, red bell peppers, nectarines, bagged onions.

 

UNFI: organic nuts, dried fruits, seeds–walnuts, medjools, cranberries, ginger, chia; organic nuts and seed butters– peanut butter, coconut butter, sunflower butter; Quest bars; Redwood kefir; more.

FRIDAY

More organic produce from Destiny!

The future is bright at Rabbit Food.

 

 

 

 

ANOTHER NEW ITEM

SEPTEMBER 2. . . .SAMI’S SENT A SAMPLE of millet and flax pita bread last week.  My family demolished it in short order!  I think it’s a bread that will become a favorite for several of you. Another plus: the millet flour and ground flax are organic.  There’s some en route to us now. Which reminds me–as Monday was a holiday, the Sami’s shipment will not arrive until Thursday this week.


WOULD IT HELP?  Wednesday tends to be a less-busy day at Rabbit Food, which would make it ideal for CSA delivery.  However, I understand that the 5pm closing time may prevent some potential CSAers from being able to pick up.  Would it help if Rabbit Food stayed open until 6 on Wednesdays?  If so, let Stephen or Theresa know: gardendelivery@gmail.com


ORGANIC PRODUCE THURSDAY:  garlic, black plums, baby spinach (plenty this time), sunflower sprouts (so, so good), and watercress.

ORGANIC PRODUCE IN STOCK: lemons, limes, ginger, grapefruit, avocados, bananas, gold potatoes, red onions, yellow onions, cabbages, red peppers, pineapples, carrots.

ORGANIC PRODUCE FRIDAY: if Destiny has them, we’ll get lettuce, sweet potatoes, oranges, red potatoes, maybe some kale, celery, and any other organic that takes our fancy!


FROM UNFI:  the big bags of frozen blueberries are still showing as out of stock, so I’ve ordered 1 lb bags to tide us over.  Some other highlights of the order are Bach Rescue gum, organic golden raisins, Ezekiel 4.9, Beanitos,  mirin cooking wine, Hilary’s root burgers, Drew’s organic Asian ginger dressing, ghee, carob chips.


 

FROM GRANOLA NATURALS:  Hae you noticed something different about the peanutty nuggets?   Mary is now making some that are all nuggets, no chocolate.  Worth trying!

Try somethings old and somethings new at Rabbit Food.
