strawberry pie

Time to pop some bubbly

It was long overdue, but we had to celebrate…1. Butterfield Gourmet moved into it’s new permanent kitchen space. (And there was much rejoicing!) It is so big — Rosemarie and I are doing laps trying to figure out which way to go when we’re working. :)

2. Gotta brag on my boy…our youngest was accepted into the Neeley Fellows program in the business school at TCU. He’d applied in the spring and was anxiously awaiting word on his acceptance. As a parent, it’s such a good thing to be able to say “you see what hard work can do?!”

3. Lastly, my husband’s birthday often gets too light a treatment because it’s thrown in the month with Mother’s Day, end of school priorities, and everything else that makes up May craziness. John is my rock. He supports what I do and makes my life run so much smoother. Managing my own business is not easy but it would be impossible without my support system. Needless to say, he deserves to be honored. He. Is. The. Best. (Also, if I haven’t mentioned before, he’s my romantic soulmate. Oops. TMI?)


So we finally made it to one of our favorite restaurants to celebrate all of the collective joy and it was a lovely evening. Rainy. But lovely. Good food, wine and company.

This week’s menu has two notable features – a fantastic two-crust Strawberry Pie which I am baking for JB and an elevated, Grown-up Tuna Noodle Casserole – no canned soup in this dish!

Have a great week and remember to stop by and see our new space; we’ll be churning out a lot of good meals. Please order by 10am the day prior to pickup. Thank you!

P.s. The Farmers Market had light traffic this past Saturday so I have one each Santa Fe, Home Sweet Home and Butterfield pot pies that did not sell. They went into the freezer and are available if you want one for dinner Monday or any other day this week.

This leap year is moving forward with big leaps!

We are approximately 60 days into the new year. You know that feeling during the first week of January, when everything is a clean slate — empty calendar pages, brand new journals, fresh resolutions on a crisp sheet of paper. And in a blur, we stand at the door of the 3rd month of the year.

Sometimes we are tempted to throw in the towel on those resolutions we made with all sincerity in January; but I say, on the eve of the last month of the 1st quarter, it’s time to look back at that list and pat yourself on the back for the small victories or headway you’ve made toward a goal. Or respectively, an opportunity to reevaluate and adjust to more reasonable timeframes.

For me, I am through the tax process (a bit of an ordeal for a small business owner) which was hanging over my head and now that I have the monkey off my back, I am looking again at my goals and resolutions.

1. I need to begin writing a cookbook, a goal that’s been simmering on the back burner for a while and this is the year to do it…empty nest, no weddings to plan, no parties to throw.
2. I am working on growing my patience. Still working on that one.
3. Professionally, I need to decide where I’m taking this business of mine…hmmm….have met a couple of roadblocks there, will be concentrating heavily on this one over the next four weeks.

So March is my re-calibration month! Oh, and I have a new toy that I will be experimenting with…if you want to know what it is and see the things I try, follow me on instagram @butterfieldgourmet!

Have a great week,
