The Merry Month of May

Welcome to The Butcher's Blog -
May 2015
(to see June 2015 click here >)

Now we are in the month of May
with Cinco de Mayo and Mothers Day
and Memorial Day is on the 25th
a Barbeque Tradition that is not a myth

We have Cinco de Mayo on the 5th, (Carne Asada here)  then the Wildflower and Music Festival at the Mt Pisgah Arboretum on the 17th.

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 below to help you plan ahead for that special weekend.

Mother's Day
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.

Mother's Day is a sacred time
To celebrate a special rhyme
Of love and gratitude we share
For our mothers here and everywhere
