Thanks so much for all the support, you guys! I love working at the Co-op. So far my food demos have resulted in increased sales on all the items, which is one of the purposes. Apparently I’m quite persuasive when it comes to good food!
I love the Co-op because it is neither pretentious like Whole Foods sometimes feels nor is it too “Birkenstocks and granola”, like some Co-ops. We have pretty strict food regulations and it looks like a regular grocery store (well, it is). It’s much like New Seasons in Portland, which by the way was recently on NPR – awesome.

I bought my T-day turkey there, and it was cool to learn about the different types of sustainable turkeys. They sell certain breeds that were popular in the 1940-1950 era, but lost popularity to the giant breasted birds of today. When I cook my bird I’ll tell you how it is. Ironically, it’s from Heidi’s farm in Oregon. Cool, huh!!
Hopefully that TV show concept will come to fruition. I’ll settle for an internet TV show…or how bout I get my butt in gear and at least make some more videos? Baby steps, right!
Thanks so much for the advice! Just called and was able to reserve a bird that someone else had canceled. A 20-pounder… we’ll be eating it for a while!
cool, I’m glad it worked out! Was it a tasty one?
