Hello Wheatsville friends!
The weather is gorgeous as our glorious spring continues! Happy
Mother’s day to all you Wheatsville moms out there! Hope you have great
weekend! So far May is bringing lovely days and nights and it has also
brought excellent Co-op Advantage Specials to your favorite co-op.
I like to cook up Boca Burgers, toast some Rudi’s Organic Buns and have
a yummy lunch or quick dinner. These items are both on sale this month,
so these will be no-brainer meals for May. The Rudi’s Whole Wheat
Organic buns are really quite excellent, so try them out.
Tofurky turkey style slices are on sale for $1.99, and they make a
heckuva sandwich with the Rudi’s buns, too! I like to use Vegenaise
from the dairy case, but any mayo of your choice would work well.
Alexia Fries are a delicious addition to any of these quick meals. If
you haven’t tried these fries, you’re missing out! They’re on sale for
The Co-op Advantage Flyer this month has two great recipes, one for
Grilled Tofu and Vegetable Antipasti and the other for a lovely Pasta
Pomodoro. These look delicious and could make a nice Mother’s day meal
for Dad and kids to make. They are not very difficult recipes and could
be more family-fun than finding a restaurant to take Mom to. The Pasta
Pomodoro recipe suggests BioNatura Pasta (it’s on sale this month) but
I have to put a plug in for it myself. This is the BEST pasta I have
eaten. Their whole wheat pasta is also extremely good. So, try it if

If you haven’t been eating asparagus this Spring so far, I suggest you
get started! Asparagus is so easy to prepare, but is so nice and fancy,
you’ll feel like a real star when you serve it. Just chop the bottoms
off or for more fun, hold the base of the stem and draw back the top of
the spear until it snaps. That way you are ensured of the most tender
asparagus. Then just sautee, steam or roast until bright green (just a
few minutes) try not to over cook.
The deli is featuring our homemade salad dressings in 16 oz containers
ready to take home! These have been a real hit so far and are a much
better deal than most salad dressings out there.
Look for our Salsa of the month for May starting next Wednesday. We
will be featuring our Poblano Pepper Salsa. Come check it out, we’ll
have samples galore!
Don’t forget Third Thursday on May 19th all up and down Guadalupe and
please come to our May 22nd Member Gathering here at the co-op.
Our Community Action Wednesday group for May is the Save Our Springs
Alliance. Support this group by shopping on Wednesdays in May!
I hope you have a great weekend and a wonderful month!
