What is going on?!

If you looked outside or on social media today you may have noticed an unwelcome guest lurking. Smoke. Thickest I’ve seen and a somber reminder of what our neighbors to the south are tackling right now.

I’ve interviewed a few farmers about their irrugation situation given the lack of rainfall. While many (including my own family’s farm) are having to keep irrigation on longer into the season than they would have liked, no one was fearful of being out of water (at this time) like they were 2 years ago in December. Regardless, we are in an uneasy situation and if you are anything like me, seasonably inapropreate weather makes you uncomfortable.

Here’s to staying positive, living and eating sustainably and remaining hopeful.

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week:

Monday in Baywood and Thursday in Morro Bay and Friday in Cambria

1. Butternut barley

2. Turkish Red lentil

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars!

It was a dusty mountian bike ride today and absolutely loaded with tarantulas! Fingers crossed that means rain could be on the way! As seen in the photo above, my husband has zero fear of arachnids (one of the reasons I married him) and showed off by pretending to eat one. This stunt very much impressed our 13 year old mountian biking buddy, John. My husband has even been appointed the official trantula re-locator at Hearst Castle, so fear not, arachniphobes, the castle grounds are spidie free.

Thankful for the soup booth

I started my culinary career making popcorn at the Bay Theatre. My last year of high school and all… ahem… FIVE years at Cal Poly I worked at the theatre with a group of fellow students. We were a well oiled popcorn popping, ticket taking, coca cola filling, milk dud slinging machine. When a blockbuster would hit the reels on a Friday night the it was game on and we lived for it. It was customer service Olympics.

Fast forward 15 years and here I am back in service beast mode and it’s still the same passion. I was born to do customer service, it feeds my soul. Thank you, my dear customers, for bringing that back in my life. I leave my job everyday fulfilled. My passion for creating the best possible product is fueled by your consistency. THANK YOU, GUYS!!!
