(Last) Green Heart Menu for Rillito Park Farmers Market Sunday July 3rd, 8 am - Noon

 

Dear Green Heart Friends,

I know some of you thought last Sunday was our last farmers market for this summer, but no; it's actually this Sunday, July 3rd.

We're responding to some requests (Zesty Veg Soup w/Posole, & Tiramisu). James will prepare one of his favorite East Indian dishes (Saag with Tofu Paneer). We'll include a favorite (Mac n'Cheez with Roasted Veggies). For something new (Summer Sunset Pie), which actually I stole the idea from WF website, but I'm making the healthy version 😁 because that's what I do 💚 .

Although I travel to Northern California for 10 days, I will be back the week of July 18th.  I will continue to make special orders over the summer (as I slog down my long undone To Do list).  Because Green Heart has 5-star Yelp, we come up first when people Google "vegan cakes Tucson".  Yelp has taken over the internet, and usually the customer does not see our website.  Hence, I get a fair amount of "cold calls" from people looking for a cake, very often for "now".  But sometimes it's for "tomorrow", in which case I often make that cake.  The point is, I'll be baking, and we'll continue to supply some baked goods to Midtown Vegan Deli. Give me a call or drop me a line if you would like to order something.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  We really appreciate your orders, and you are the reason that we continue. 

If I don't see you Sunday at the market, see you in September!

Menu for 6/26

 

Dear Green Heart Friends,

Here is our next-to-last menu before we take a hiatus on this weekly menu and the Rillito Farmers Market.  Our last Sunday is July 3rd.

This Sunday we will have the Kale Potato Enchilada Casserole that you see here:

kale potato enchilada casserole.jpg
We've made this for YEARS, and the last time we made it, Ted and I split one serving for dinner.  I had forgotten how tasty it is, and satisfying.
Next, I want to show you the Pasta Salad; I know I didn't mention every single vegetable in it in the menu description, but they will all be there:

pasta salad.jpg

James will make us a Creamy Hemp Dressing (w/o oil), so that + the brown rice pasta = high plant protein content; just FYI.  And I love Pasta Salad.

You will see that we'll have soy-free Chocolate Mint Cupcakes with buttercream frosting because I have a cake order for that, and there will be extra batter for cupcakes.  The frosting, as well. Oh, and the Tiramisu that I was making last summer is back.

Do you know we buy a 50 lb bag of blue corn from New Mexico, and mill it into flour?  That is what we use in our Blueberry Blue Corn Muffins:
blue corn muffins.JPG

Now THAT'S a well-seasoned pan, isn't it?  Decades of baking....

In other news, I have grandiose plans of what can be accomplished during the hiatus:  storage unit in California emptied, tax returns done and filed, get an AZ drivers license, update my website and get the email list on MailChimp, complete the unpacking and set up of my office, hang the artwork on the walls, create an online baking course, take some trail rides (at higher elevation where it's cooler)...you get the idea.  I will continue to make special order cakes, and send baked goods to Midtown Vegan Deli.  I'll only be in California for 10 days from 7/8 to 7/18.

Thank you very much!  It is always good to see you, even if I seem "out of it" at the market from lack of sleep or the heat or both 🤓

Warmly,

Alaine

Father's Day Menu

 

Dear Green Heart Friends,

The menu is going out late as I had to meet a lady at Costco at 6 pm with cupcakes for her daughter's birthday.  It was not finished prior to that as I have been playing catch up all day.

My Thoroughbred, Baghdad, had colic Tuesday night.  Ted let the horses out into their turnout after 10 pm and noticed Baghdad came out and fell on the ground and lay there, instead of rolling, and then going to "clean up" the hay left by the other horses.  So, I walked him for over an hour and a half, until we were satisfied that he was okay.  Ironically, he walked with me MUCH better than he usually does but that was because he was so subdued.  And it was beautiful walking in the full moon light, and the air was the perfect temperature:  not too hot, and not too cold.  We have outdoor lights for the horses' area, so that was good.  Eventually, all 4 horses bedded down for the night.  I didn't have a sense of doom, but you never know for sure....

I WAS going to go to bed "early", and instead went to bed extra-late.  Ted got up at 5 am, and reported back that Baghdad seemed back to normal - what a relief!  I slept longer, working on my sleep deficit.  Then I had an appointment, then the cupcakes to frost, then Cathy stopped by for a visit.  Then it was time to jump in the car with the cupcakes, and shop for ingredients.

I happened to notice on Facebook, I believe, that Renee's Organic Oven has a "Vegan Box".  I called and ordered one, picking it up on the way home.  It contained a small pizza, Pasta Pesto, Garlic Knots and their Cinnamon "Bread" with dipping sauce, for $30.  We ate some of it...all white flour, and so much oil.  Like A LOT of oil.  Ted said, "You don't realize how good the food is that you make until you have someone else's".  "Well, the picture looked good," I said.  But it is no fun to not feel good after you eat; ask Baghdad.  Fortunately, I'm not going to colic, but I don't have energy from having eaten either.

I took a picture of this picture on my laptop in order to show you how yummy and fresh this looks: Barbecued Stuffed Sweet Potatoes.  Jackfruit and lentils will simmer in our barbecue sauce, and that will stuff and top the sweet potatoes.  Then  quick-pickled red onion and cucumber on top; we'll have herbed quinoa on the side.

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes.jpg

Since we'll be stuffing, we'll also stuff organic Red Bell Peppers, with the Mexican rice that we have done in the past.  However, there is an OPTION:  you can order yours with wild rice, seasoned with Dr. Sebi-approved herbs.  We are responding to long-time requests for Dr. Sebi-compliant meals, and finally, we have the chance.

And for our last photo:

Chocolate PB Uncheescake.JPG

Chocolate Peanut butter Uncheesecake by the slice, a 4" round, or a 6" round.

That's all, folks!  (that I have to say at the moment ;-)

Thank you in advance for your order.  And a reminder:  our last market is Sunday July 3rd, so the last menu will go out Wednesday, June 29th.  Then we go on hiatus for 2 mos -- no markets, but we will be available to make special orders.

In health,

Green Heart Menu for Rillito Park Farmers Market Sunday 6/5, 8 am - Noon

 



Dear Green Heart Friends,

Responding to requests, we have the "Thai-inspired Tempeh Salad" this week, which has a peanut lime sauce on the side.  Last time, I uncleverly "hid" the buckwheat soba noodles under the marinated & browned tempeh - but they were there!

As a reminder, we have 5 menus remaining (including this one) until the weekly menus go on hiatus for part of July and August.  (The last menu is for Sunday July 3rd.) Initially, I will go to Northern California and see my siblings and cousins and their children face to face for the first time since 2019.  We have to empty out the last storage unit since my mom's passing.....we were too sentimental at that time, and did not get rid of everything immediately.  Of course, we did not foresee the pandemic and 3 years of storage fees, with 2 rate increases - aargh!  (Our plan had been to reconvene in 6 mos. 😂)  With luck, I'll be back in 10 days or so and begin my Catch-up List.  I will still make special order cakes, and other special orders that come along.

Now that the snowbirds have flown home, our tally numbers are down (typical for the hot months).  If we don't receive enough orders for an item on the menu, it is possible that it will not be made.  I will do my best to give you some email notice if this is the case.  I do my best to intuit what will be popular but I'm not always correct.
 
 In case you didn't hear last Sunday, the Gila monster "fell" into our house when I opened the front door.  Unfortunately, there's no footage of me pushing him with a broom, and him whipping around when I touched his tail with it. I had to very slowly coax him only on his side with the broom (with Ted yelling instructions from outside in the courtyard, such as "hurry up!").  Since then, the cats sniff and sniff where he was, and raise their fur.
 


Enough hot weather tales! (Tails?) 

Thank you in advance for your order.  Please try to order by Thursday evening.  If you are new, email me with what you'd like to have on Sunday, and I will have it for you.  You will pay for your order then, not in advance.

It's hot now 🤓,

Menu for Rillito Farmers Market 5/29 Memorial Weekend, 8 am - Noon

 

Dear Green Heart Friends,

Valentine's, St. Patty's, Easter, Mother's Day, and now MEMORIAL DAY -- it seems these markers are flying by!

And a reminder:  we are planning SIX (6) more weekly menus, including this one, until the menus go on hiatus for a couple of months (July & August).  Some of you have thought that we are gone in June, but no :-). That means our last menu will be for Sunday, July 3rd.

As it is Memorial Day weekend, we shall have our BBQ Spare Ribs, baked beans & potato salad - always popular.

For a change, I brought out a recipe I used to make when I was still at St Phillips Plaza (!) because James, who now cooks with us, enjoys making Indian dishes, and will bring some of his own Indian spices to make it more special.  And on the side will be 2 sauces:  a cucumber raita, and a mint chutney (made with Ted's fresh garden mint).

Baked Samosa Casserole.jpg

Ancient recipe photo :-)

And - btw - I will go over what I WILL still be making in July and August...but not now as it's confusing for people.

Thank you!  It's always fun to plan the weekly menu.  If you are newly-added to this email, just email me back with what you'd like me to reserve for you for Sunday.  You will pay for your order when you pick up (not ahead of time).

In health,
