Menus for Rillito Park Farmers Market & Christmas delivery


Dear Green Heart Friends,

This is the last email of 2021!  You will find 2 menus attached:  for Sunday 12/19 at Rillito Park, and the Christmas Menu, which is available for delivery on Thursday, 12/23.

As you did at Thanksgiving, please email a Christmas order in a separate email (so I'll have less chance of goobling it all up :-).

I am really pleased with both these menus, even though I feared at moments that I'd never get them composed. 

Leila will deliver again for Christmas, as she did at Thanksgiving; she really enjoys doing it and in general, loves this holiday season.

If you have any special requests, please let me know. 

Above all else, I say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.  This has been an amazing year for us (and with hindsight, I would make some changes, but who wouldn't?).  You have been a crucial part of the success of this year. Again, THANK YOU 💚 And, my horses thank you, too 🐎🐎🐎🐎.

I am planning to send the next menu on Wednesday, January 5th for the Jan 9th Rillito Market.  That is, if I can complete all my "deferred tasks" by then  - everything has expired!  (Well, not anything having to do with food, but everything else.)

I wish you all a peaceful year's end and holidays ❤
