Weekend Hodgepodge

The start of this weekend was pretty low key, beginning with a trek to our CPA for a tax appointment on Friday night. Yeah, what a rad Friday, huh? It was a steady crescendo, however, culminating with an incredibly inspirational trip to Weavers Way Co-Op in Philadelphia on Sunday.

Jumbars Frittata

Saturday began with a delicious Jumbars fritatta, loaded with sausage, caramelized onions, farmers cheese, and roasted red peppers.

New Tripoli Road

After breakfast, I headed out under the dreary sky to New Tripoli with my Girl Scout co-leader to visit a friend/sister scout who took a bad fall and is homebound for weeks.

Keepsake Barn

In the afternoon, Kevin and I visited Keepsake Farm, where we had a long chat with Farmer John and got to see a calf that was born that morning! I was trying to take a picture, but this cow stepped right in front of the view!

Petite Beef Tenderloin & Mushrooms

We picked up a petite tenderloin and cooked it up into this meal of beef & mushrooms in wine sauce with roasted red potatoes with blue cheese & lemon juice and spinach. Recipes to come soon!


The sunset looked especially dramatic through the wind blown clouds Saturday evening.

Finally, on Sunday, a group of us piled into the car to visit Weavers Way, a utopia of cooperation and good food. It was amazing, informative and inspirational!

I’ve detailed every bit of our experience on the Bethlehem Food Co-Op website. There’s a detailed photo tour of both Weavers Way locations so that you can start to get as excited as I am about the possibilities for our town! Part one is here and part two is here.
