Yellows, Pinks, and Greens – What Are You Thinking?

Spring is here!
Our spring and Easter candy is here. It’s exciting to see pastel gummy bunnies, gummy carrots, the “deluxe” mix and chocolate eggs. We have a whole line up of spring sprinkles, including green clover shapes. Starting March 6th, Corned Beef will be available (for a limited time) and for a great price.

Cheesy Results

As a result from our Cheese Tasting Day, we now have cubed cheese in the cooler. It’s a great snack or quick lunch. Just grab a container of your favorite cheese. Don’t see your favorite – we can quickly cube some for you.

Shirley Dickenson won the free pound of cheese. Congrats Shirley! Thanks to all who voted for your favorite. Bacon Cheese was the winner. Due to its popularity, it will now become a deli item, along with Habanaro Jalapeno. The other specialty cheese are still available as smaller prepackaged items in the cooler.

No Bake Energy Bites (from Jodi)
A favorite of ours and the kids. This recipe, from a friend, is so good you might as well make a double recipe.

1 c. oatmeal
1 c. coconut
1/2 c. peanut butter or other nut butter (we also have almond and cashew)
1/2 c. flaxmeal
1/2 c. mini chocolate chips (I think mint chocolate chips would be good if you use almond or cashew butter)
1/3 c. honey (these are kind of sweet – you could use less honey and more peanut butter)
1 t. vanilla
All ingredients available at The Country Cupboard.
Mix together, then chill for one hour. Roll into 1 inch balls. Store in the refrigerator.
