A customer said to me “How’s your day going?” How to reply its hot outside but you can’t see the sky, its sunny outside but you can’t see the sun. The smoke has made it hard on a lot of people, especially those who are on evacuation notice and those who have had to leave their homes. So, my day is pretty good because I am inside with cool air conditioning and safe.
Unfortunately it is hard on the tourist business, they come in to visit and grab beach food but then find our store cool and inviting so luckily enough they can sit enjoy a delicious snack, meal and cool drink.
It is still summer we still want to enjoy our holidays, enjoy the beach, enjoy the area and not cook if we can help it. Urban Fare is a big help there with all the snacks needed for a day or two or three off.
This week the Feature Fare is our Rositerre chickens amazing deal and really you make it look like you cooked. Pick up a whole chicken take it home and wa la we have roast chicken dinner with mashed potatoes, fresh steamed vegetables and warm bread or…….
Rip the chicken apart and pack the pieces for the picnic basket. Then shred the breasts, toss with taco seasoning, cut up tomatoes and lettuce, grate cheese and fold in a warm wrap for an easy dinner.
