A THING OF BEAUTY IS A JOY FOREVER: IT’S LOVELINESS INCREASES; IT WILL NEVER PASS INTO NOTHINGNESS… JOHN KEATS, (Endymion book 1; an excerpt)

Beauty is more than something we see. Beauty is something that is within a person or place; a feeling that at times cannot be described. True beauty is experienced.

A wonderful part of being married to The Butcher is the many new adventures that it brings! Our Market is closed on Mondays, but that usually means we are out having fun, meeting new people and learning new things. Many times our adventures take us Upstate New York… to the Mountains, to the Hudson Valley, to the Schoharie Valley. In the mountains of Upstate NY, the air is clean and the people are lovely. We always feel as though one day in the mountains can refresh us and then we can get back to work, back to our everyday.

Our Market and our life are intertwined. Food… Good Food …is our business and our passion.

Along the path to finding good food to bring to our special customers, we meet the best, most hardworking people who are responsible for the beginnings of that good food.

Two Hours and Twenty Four Minutes drive from Huntington, Long Island took us on an adventure to a beautiful place in the Hudson Valley. A place where every day feels like two and we can feel unhurried and unstressed.

Corned Beef & Cabbage

Are you planning to cook up this traditional meal for your family on St. Patrick’s Day?

My Grandmother always made this special meal, and I have wonderful memories because of the time spent sharing dinner with her. Β Even though my Grandmother was of Dutch Heritage, she would prepare this dish for my Grandfather who was Irish and Italian.

Today, I make the same Irish Soda Bread that she used to bake and it truly is special and transports me back in time.

My favorite line from Β The Times of your life by Paul Anka…. “The memories are times that you borrowed, to spend when you get to tomorrow.”

Enjoy every moment with your family…#itsthelittlethings #cooktogether~
