Chicken and changes.

Short e-mail this week for a change! (We're so busy, we hardly have time for anything!)

Our deli continues to come together with some new or new-ish things!

Look for brand new Natural Rosemary Garlic Roasted whole Chicken ready to take home and eat! In the deli self-service case!
Have you had our fresh baked LaBrea bread yet? It's really good. We're baking it three times a day and doing our best to keep it sticked for you.
Many of you have been enjoying our new Fair Trade organic coffee bar. I enjoy the soy hot chocolate made with Organic Dagoba chocolate syrup. We've got a member coupon on the Wheatsvillain, brewed coffee with a shot of espresso.
Soup is still available! It's now out for self service next to the baker case. We have 2 soups a day (plus our tempeh chili available at the deli counter.)

Words from Bryan, our meat guy!

Hey wheaties! Thanks for all the positive feed back on the new seafood case, and quick-to-fix entrées. In the Fresh Cases this week we have the following to entice you with.
Moroccan Lamb patties: flavorful spicy sausage patty with fresh cilantro & parsley various other spices – these are becoming very popular.
Cajun Catfish: a lil spicy taste of the south with no msg, preservatives, and additives. Fresh made Italian sausage link: We make and stuffed these in house, by hand (a first!). Add the flavor of fennel, garlic, and just a little spice to make your spaghetti jump off the plate.
Garlic and herb chicken: featuring Buddy's Boneless white meat marinated in garlic, thyme, rosemary, basil and oregano. This is a great piece of chicken! It is versatile in the kitchen and can be used as a topper for a salad or mixed with pasta and fresh veggies or pesto.
Salmon patties: Made with wild caught Alaskan salmon and flavored with sesame oil, soy sauce, and ginger.
Don't miss this month's member coupons on great Applegate products: Natural uncured slow cooked ham -.25 off with coupon and Organic spinach and feta sausage -.25 off with member coupon.

Expansion news
It's been just under a year since construction started on this amazing and historic project at your co-op! Can you believe it?
Relive some of the early demolition at Plus a few other videos including me in the kitchen with the downlow on how to cook simple asparagus.

If you've been in this week, you've seen the store continue to change as we move toward completion of the project (we're just about 6 weeks away from the finish line!)

Grocery has relocated to some new shelves, but it has not yet expanded into its final form. (That will come in a few weeks!)
Produce is relocated at the end of the first of the new grocery aisles. Head on down and visit your friends in produce land. They miss you! Plus, they've got some of that local food we should all be eating, right?
The new Hospitality Desk was installed today. This will ultimately be personned for the vast majority of the day, but for the next couple of weeks will mostly just look pretty. It was made by local craftsman at
Nagelhout & Company and the concrete top was made out of recycled concrete and bottled from Ecology Austin by the Austin artists at Newbold Stone.

Change will continue over the next month and half. THese e-mails are a good way to stay apprised of the changes.

REMEMBER: If you can't find something, please ask the staff. We WANT to help you find what you're looking for and help make this transition as smooth as possible.

THANK YOU so much for your continued patience and support during this exciting but sometimes trying time!

See you in the store, I hope!
