Green Heart Menu for Rillito Park Farmers Market Sunday 1/22/23 9 am - 1 pm


Dear Green Heart Friends,

Here is a wedding cake I made for a lovely Australian bride, who flew here to marry a local gent.
They needed a diabetic-friendly cake that they could take with them to Yuma, where they were to be married in the presence of his older (diabetic) family members.  She chose the Apple Spice Cake w/Maple Frosting (I used maple extract instead of syrup; both cake and frosting were sweetened with the organic birch xylitol.)  And as often happens with clients who are not from here, she chose a "desert theme" of succulents for decoration.  Organic raspberries were dusted in cacao powder to look like rocks; ground walnuts look like smaller rocks.  (The succulents were ordered from Amazon and are NOT edible.). And she wanted the writing on top of the cake, which is RARE for a wedding cake.

Muddy horses!  We're grateful for the rain, and also for the "break" so that the corrals can dry out, and the mud can come off the horses.  I'm disappointed that the ground is not bursting forth with baby green grass, like it is in Northern California, and like it did when we lived on the Tanque Verde wash; the horses are MORE disappointed :-( because that's "green ice cream" to them!

If you are new to receiving this email:  the menu is the attachment.  To order, please email back to me with your choices.  Your order will be ready for you to pick up Sunday at Rillito Park Farmers Market, and you will pay for it then (not in advance).  I believe the menu is pretty straight-forward this week; email or call me with questions :-).  Please do your best to have your order in by Thursday evening.

At last, a food photo:

Thank you in advance for your order!

In health,
