Last week was Grandma’s birthday, so we piled into the car and drove up to Shady Maple Smorgasbord in Lancaster, PA to share a family meal. Shady Maple is a great place to celebrate, as they offer a free meal on your birthday, can accommodate large groups, and their endless smorgasbord offers lots of choices for everyone. It was fun to visit with the family and we love to shop in the Shady Maple Farm Market where I usually pick up inexpensive bulk items. This trip we stocked up on a lot of fresh produce and bulk spices, so I was super happy we stopped in.
The grandparents had to jet off to another get together, so we ended up with their free birthday super whoopie pies from the Shady Maple Farm Market bakery. They’re gigantic and yummy, but I’m definitely sending those babies into work with my husband to share so we don’t eat them all ourselves!
Here’s what we purchased on our first visit to Miller’s Natural Food Store:
Organic Blue Corn Flour – I'll admit I’ve never used this before, but I’m going to try to make homemade blue corn tortillas! I think my 2 year old will love blue tortillas.
Organic Steel Cut Oats – A breakfast favorite around here and the best price I’ve paid for these at only $0.85/lb.
Organic Unsulphured Unsweetened Coconut Flakes – I love to stick coconut into smoothies! My husband uses coconut to top oatmeal. And of course it’s yummy in baked treats.
Organic Sesame Seeds – We use these to make homemade hummus. They are also great sprinkled on top stir frys.
Organic Produce - Bibb Lettuce
It was a terribly rainy day, so I didn’t snap any pictures at Miller's Natural Foods Store. When we return, I’ll be sure to take a few pictures and do an official write up for anyone else looking for more information. If you're planning a visit to Lancaster Pennsylvania, this store is definitely a great find that I highly recommend!
