March News from
La Donna’s Fancy
Celebrating a decade of good taste!
It’s still all about the Party…
We opened our doors 11 years ago on March 15th. It’s Party Time. We talked about having a few vendors in to sample their products and even had a couple lined up. Then, decided to showcase what we make here, after all, it is all about us. We will have a huge sampling day of the things we make here, showing what you can do with them…Sun-dried Tomato Dip mixed with rotini pasta, Tuna Salad made with our Citrus Rice, Awesome Dip and Turkey Roll-Ups, just to name a few – You need to know these are not just what the package says – they are so much more. Plan on dropping by on Saturday, March 15th and help us celebrate 11 years of La Donna’s Fancy Foods! Don’t worry about the vendors they are going to be coming in on other Saturdays throughout the Spring one at a time, so it can be all about them.
New in the store…
First of all, we have made a new blue cheese dip. If you are a blue cheese lover, you know that not all blue cheeses are created equal. Some are strong and some are mild and some just are not impressive at all (we don’t sell those). We got to thinking that our Devil in a Blue Dress is an awesome blue cheese dip. We make it with strong Spanish Blue Cheese and add a few Jalapenos. What’s not to love? Well, if you don’t care for strong and spicy, I guess you don’t love it. So, we made one with Gorgonzola Dolce. This is a blue cheese that is made with mascarpone cheese and it’s creamy and quite a bit milder than the Spanish blue. We are calling it Angel in a Blue Habit. The name fits perfectly. It is wonderful. So, if you’ve been afraid of the Devil in a Blue Dress, this one is for you!
Also new, we have a couple of Italian Antipasto’s, Bruschetta, Relish – whatever you want to call them. Just call them delicious. From Oklahoma, we have Scaffetta’s Bruschetta Antipasto. Tomato based, chunky and yummy. Then, from Missouri, we have Vince’s Caponata Italian Relish. It is made with eggplant, bell peppers, celery, tomatoes and a variety of other vegetables. Very tasty.
Both of these, you can serve as an appetizer, stir into pasta, spoon on potatoes or whatever else your imagination lets you go with.
Did you know St. Patrick’s Day is coming up?
We did too. So, we got in everyone’s favorite Cahills Porter and Cahills Whiskey Cheese. To go with those, we ordered, Ardrahan – an artisanal aromatic cheese for the more adventurous Irish Cheese fan. So, don’t forget to include Irish Cheese with that St. Patty’s meal and/or party!
Employees of the Month
I’m just going to say, I don’t love cleaning. I do it. But, it’s not my favorite thing to do. I’d rather create a new dip or seasoning! But, my Saturday girls make up for my lack of enthusiasm in the cleaning department. These ladies come in and immediately start scrubbing, dusting, organizing (that’s not a strong suit either) and making our little store shine. It is looking fantastic these days in case you haven’t been in. You’d be impressed. I know I am! Employee(s) of the month are Marybeth and Sarah, our Saturday girls. I’m going to bet that cleaning is not their favorite thing either, but they have to work after I’ve been here all week…what are they gonna do? I’m a mess.
