The Merry Month of May


Today, May 1st, Mt Pisgah arboretum is almost in full bloom and we are finally getting into a bit warmer Spring. 

We have Cinco de Mayo on the 5th, then the Wildflower and Music Festival at the Mt Pisgah Arboretum on the 8th. Then let's not forget Memorial Day on the 31st. Memorial Day weekend may be the unofficial kickoff for the start of the outdoor barbecue season, so we have added a link to few recipe ideas to help you plan ahead for that weekend.

However, the most important day is on the 12th - Mother's Day - and this day is definitely sacred. Usually no cooking is done by the mother of the household. In this newsletter, we have some meat recipe ideas for you to use or pass to those who can if you are a mother. A quick reminder that we have fresh cuts daily and will cut to order.


Cinco de Mayo Meat Recipe Ideas


Shredded Beef Chimichangas - 2 lbs of beef chuck roast, trimmed of fat - 
"Usually deep fried, chimichangas can also be oven-fried with less mess, fuss, and fat. Use the filling in burritos as well. You may also deep fry, if desired."
Tacqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada - 3lbs of flank steak - 
"This is a great recipe for authentic Mexican taqueria style carne asada tacos (beef tacos). These are served on the soft corn tortillas, unlike the American version of tacos."


Over the Top Nachos - 1 lb of ground beef - "These nachos can be served as a meal, but all the good stuff makes for a great appetizer or snack while watching a game or a quick lunch for your family and friends. Better plan on making two plates of these, they're really good! Serve with sour cream, salsa, and guacamole."
