I took your advice and crossed into CT to shop at Fleishers Meat Market, excuuuuuse me, Craft Butchery, and wow, great meats but waaaaaaay waaaaaaaay waaaaay out of my financial comfort zone. Beautiful store. Staff all fabulous. Bonus: I can sign up for Butchering 101 classes.
While I waited for my steaks to be wrapped in brown paper and weighed, a young Greenwich mom came asking for just about one of everything, even ground hamburger at $12.99 pound! But hey, the cattle is raised outdoors on a pasture and eat a diverse range of grasses and legumes. Never treated with hormones or growth-promoting antibiotics…..that is, before slaughtering them! 😬
I about fell over at the price tag but hey, the steaks will be delish!!!! Tomorrow night. With sautéed mushrooms and onions.
By sheer coincidence, I had a prepaid box I needed to drop off at a post office and lo and behold, Cos Cob P.O. was RIGHT THERE!!
From there we decided to make it a Cos Cob trifecta and ran into Fjord Fishery. Oops. Pays to READ THE SIGN first. I pointed at one pretty slab o’salmon and saying I’ll take it BEFORE seeing it was New Zealand Organic King Salmon.
Wait for it. Wait for it.
It’s on the barbie right now with broccoli steaming as a side.
Last night, this…..yes, it’s true, 7-0. Gulp.
We had a fun gathering of all ages at a local restaurant, made a reservation two+ weeks ago, got it confirmed, showed up, no reservation!! And we were a big group so no easy way to create a table for us. Grumble. Grumble. The owner came out and apologized and in the end gave us a nice discount, but it didn’t negate that fact I made a reservation and it got confirmed by an employee at the restaurant. Grumble more. We had much fun nonetheless then came home to cake baked by Whistle Stop in Ridgefield. Chocolate cake and buttercream frosting. Being 70 isn’t so bad.
