Mother's Day breakfast in bed?

Hello Wheatsville friends and fans!

As this post goes to "press", it's still not too late to enjoy our special Cinco de mayo hot bar. We've got all KINDS of yumminess lined up: The Wheatsville Deli is going all-out in a strictly South of the Border explosion of deliciousness! This Wednesday, May 5th, we will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo with an array of tasty Tex-Mex treats on the hot bar for both vegans and omnivores! Fresh-fried tortilla chips, brown rice and soft flour tortillas will provide the base for Veggie Fajitas, Niman Ranch Beef Taco Meat, Vegan Queso, Calabacitas, organic Black Beans and more! Add to that some cool toppings of lettuce, tomato, casera salsa, sour cream and shredded Jack cheese, and you can put together a healthy, homemade Tex-Mex meal for just $7.99/lb UNTIL 7PM!

If you wanna make it yourself, we've got your produce needs covered for Cinco de Mayo! Come in for our delicious organic avocados, jalapeños, organic roma tomatoes, white onions and limes and make some quick and easy guacamole to spice up an evening at home or a celebration! In a rush? We also have Wholly Guacamole pre-made guacs in three styles, Classic, Spicy, and Pico Style. These are really good for a pre-made product!

We love our moms and we can help you show your love to yours, too!
Mother's Day Flowers
We'll have an abundance of flowers on special starting Thursday and running through the weekend. Treat your mother, or future mom's to a special treat with our beautiful flowers! Several styles available, in two sizes! We'll have them right next to the chocolate and the wine!

Moms work hard, so give the Mom in your life a break from breakfast! Let her sleep late and wow her with a fabulous breakfast in bed!

Here are some options throughout the store that you might whip up!

In the deli:
With a quick reheat, our incredible Broccoli & Cheddar or Bacon Florentine Quiches are an easy, economical and absolutely delicious way to feed the whole family! Pick up some champagne and orange juice for Mimosas to help Mom wake up on the right side of the bed, and your mother will know she's in for a wonderful day!

From Cheese Island:
Gruyere, mushrooms and caramelized onions would make a wonderful omelet. 
Looking for something lighter? Cream cheese and a bagel topped with a fresh berry medley from our produce department.
We also have a variety of Bries ranging from robust, to creamy and buttery.

We've got some exciting new products and old favorites in the Refrigerated Department to help you make Mom's breakfast special!

The Immaculate Baking Company's Buttermilk Biscuits, Blueberry or Cranberry Orange Scones ($3.89) and Cinnamon Rolls ($3.99) are super yummy and quick and easy to prepare, even dads can do it!
If you are looking for something even easier to whip up, try Batter Blaster ($4.99).  That's right, this  is pancake batter in a can.  All you have to do is squirt the desired amount on a pre-heated griddle and flip it once.  Clean-up is a snap-simply rinse the nozzle under warm water.  This product is creating quite a buzz around the dairy cooler and I hope you will give it a try.  I love them!  They are a little sweeter than your typical pancake mix and they are Organic!
For an impressive and healthy dish, try layering fresh fruit and the yogurt of your choice in a glass bowl (this is great for little ones to do!).

For a savory companion to all this sweetness, try Yves Breakfast Sausage Patties ($3.59) or Field Roast Sausage (I like  the Smoked Apple Sage $4.99).
Don't forget the Juice!  Organic Valley Orange juice is $5.99 for a half gallon.  We also have Good Belly's Probiotic Juice in Mango and Blueberry flavors, on sale for just $2.99 this month.
After Breakfast, delight your mom with Wine
This mother's day treat your mother like a queen with Peter Lehmann of the Barossa Shiraz regularly $16.99 now only $12.99! The wine has a deep centre with a dark red rim. The bouquet shows lashings of classical Barossa Shiraz chocolate and dark plum aromas, given a gentle lift from the well seasoned French oak notes. It is a robustly structured wine, with mouth-filling generous fruit.

The Deli has got you covered for the rest of the day, too! Our bakers are busy at work making gorgeous Heart-Shaped Strawberry Shortcakes, sweet-tart Lemon Bars and soft, tender Buttermilk Cookies for you to bring Mom as a springtime treat on her special day! 
Also, for Mother's Day the hot bar will be brimming with springtime favorites like our Spinach and Mushroom Frittata, Holiday Ham with Apple Jus, Coconut Mashed Sweet Potatoes, Organic Roasted Carrots and so much more to make eating a pleasure, keeping you out of the kitchen and enjoying the sunshine! A delicious meal from your co-op without all the hassle of a restaurant!

In The Grocery Aisle
Divine White Chocolate with Strawberries:
It's about time somebody came up with the idea to add strawberries to white chocolate. This combination is undeniably great, and it comes from a great company that is 45% farmer owned. Divine Chocolate is a fine example of a company with true fair trade practices. This particular chocolate bar is exceptionally smooth with the unmistakable flavor of real strawberries, and it's here just in time for Mother's Day. Justin Merrifield, Grocery Buyer


Here is a sure fire way to make it her special day with a meal prepared with your heart and soul.  Since you can't really skimp on the meal may we suggest a Niman ranch Center Cut Tenderloin steak $21.99 lb. It's a guaranteed tender and juicy steak any way you cook it. It's also a smaller portion than our larger steaks so it's suitable for a quick brunch, that isn't too heavy. Serve with fresh grilled asparagus and puree of cauliflower as a suggestion. Or serve the steak on a bed of upland cress, or any micro-green for that bistro look, alongside fresh gazpacho (can be purchased in deli) and nice sautéed green. Whatever you make, your mom is bound to be delighted cause it's made with love from the soul.

Happy Mother's Day!

Don't forget the Manchego!
We still have the delicious Manchego on sale till the end of the month for $13.69/lb., regularly $16.99/lb.

In Bulk, NEW coffee grinders to serve you better!

The deli has the goods you want!
In addition to our Mother's Day specials, the month of May brings a whole new slew of Owner Specials, Fresh in the Deli recipes and more for you to enjoy! Starting Saturday May 1st, our new Salsa of the Month for May is the veggie-laden Tomatillo Fire, boasting a trio of roasted peppers blended with tomatillos, tomatoes, onions, garlic, cilantro and cumin! Smoothie season is underway and our Smoothie of the Month is Blueberry Banana Dream, and is also an owner special at just $4.49, reg. $4.99. Our other two owner specials are for some of your Deli's most popular items: the infamously delicious Popcorn Tofu Po'Boy at $5.99, reg. $6.49, and our classic self-serve Chicken Salad made with local Buddy's all-natural white meat chicken at $8.99/lb, reg. $9.99!
Also on sale at the Deli Counter are tasty cold cuts: Boar's Head Turkey Pastrami at $9.49/lb, reg. $9.99 and Muenster Cheese, $4.99/lb, reg. $5.99!
Come on in and find something you love!

Have a great week!
