We’ve been quiet because the first few weeks…and last two really, who am I kidding…of December are crazy! We attend a lot of shows and boutiques and spend a lot of time heads down over vast pots of sweets and jams.
So where are we this weekend? The SLC Dickens Festival! This is happening at the South Town Expo Center in Sandy, Utah, December 11 – that’s tomorrow – through December 14th. They do charge for this event, but there are a bunch of coupons in various papers and online to get half off and (drumroll please) from 10-11 tomorrow morning admission is absolutely free. So come on by and visit us. We’ll be in booth 31, not so far into the maze of shops.
There will be live reindeer at the event, roasted chestnuts, vendors, plays, carolers, dancers and a very jolly special guest in the form of Father Christmas himself. It’s a great event and we look forward to seeing you there. Come spend the day in Merry Olde London, you’ll be glad you did.
Wow it was a busy weekend. We attended the SLC Gluten Free Expo this last Saturday and it was great to see so many of you there! We really enjoy going to the shows where we can talk to folks face to face, particularly when we’re helping to provide solutions to special diet needs. Food is so important and it’s just no fun when you feel like you can’t eat anything you really enjoy!
So thank you to everyone who came out and we hope to see you again next year.
In celebration of the Gluten Free fair we’ll share the recipe for our favorite cream soup mix here, and we’re have a special free shipping code which is good through the end of November. It’s a good time to get your gluten free products, and start stocking up for Christmas. So to use this you trundle over to the Cornaby’s Shopping Cart. Select your products and at the end it’ll have a box for coupons: ShipMeGlutenFree will give you free shipping on any order over $50.00. How cool is that?
Anyway…here’s the recipe for an easy cream sauce base that can be used in recipes or eaten all by itself!
Ultra Gel Cream Soup Mix
⅔ c. instant non-fat dry milk
2 t. chicken base or chicken bouillon
¼ c. Thick Gel or ⅓ – ½ c. Ultra Gel
½ t. onion powder
½ t. garlic powder
½ t. salt
Combine all ingredients in a resealable sandwich bag. Seal, label, date and store in tightly covered container. Shelf stable for up to one month, refrigerator stable for up to six months.
Yield: one packet
*Note: Since this mix doesn’t settle out so it can be made in bulk and used as needed.
We may live without poetry, music and art.
We may live without conscience , and live without heart;
We may live without friends, we may live without books;
But the civilized man cannot live without cooks.
He may live without books – what is knowledge but grieving?
He may live without hope – what is hope but deceiving?
He may live without love – what is passion but pining?
But where is the man that can live without dining?
Just a quick drive by post as we’re happily spending our Labor Day making ribs and enjoying some family time. There was laboring this morning too which lead to curtains in the right place and a bunch of dishes done, YAY.
Anyway…as you head into your grill-a-thon remember that Cornaby’s Cookine Sauces, like Raspberry Jalapeno, Raspberry Chipotle and Peach Habenero are the awesome on ribs, steaks, chicken, fish and even as a vinaigrette base for a salad. This has been a shameless plug and now we’re off to eat!
Have a great holiday!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mother’s and Mother figures out there!
I always enjoy Mother’s Day as a time to pay a little extra respect and attention to the wonderful women in our lives and, honestly, I enjoy getting pampered by Bunneh which he is very very good at. This I type as the smell of ribs fills the house…ahh…love…
Though we are fortunate not only to have mother’s in our own lives, but as a part of where this company started. I will always remember watching my grandmother work candy on a marble slab and my dear mother twisting long ropes of dough into knotted rolls and I hope to instill the same memories into my kids. Cornaby’s isn’t just a company, but a family and a farm that all started with a pretty blonde girl and a handsome boy…it’s a pretty good story…
Have a marvelous day out there!
So our newest arrival is a little over six weeks old….
This is how I feel most of the time…
This means I’m working harder at planning meals ahead as my days are a little unpredictable and my nights even more so.
So, dear reader, what are some of your favorite go to meals which should go into my rotation? Anything you just can’t live without?
Two weeks into this new mom thing stuff is going pretty well…if you don’t count the vast loss of sleep. I figure I’ll sleep when I’m dead…or at least when all the kids are off at college. I used to wonder how my Grandmother could doze off all the time, but now I understand that she’s just making up for when her children were young. :)
Anyway…posting around here should get back to something more regular soon, but in the meantime I thought I’d share a picture of the new arrival’s first time in the kitchen. She’s helping Daddy Bunneh make Red Beans and Rice for a party with friends. We figure it will still be several years before she can do the stirring herself, but it’s a good place to start isn’t it?
