MARKET REPORT – APR. 07, 2017 – Every bit of help counts for Peruvians

As many of you saw last week, we issued a plea for help for our drowning banana producers in Peru.  If you missed the email about this let us know.  We are trying to raise as much money as possible in this matching fund relief program to get into our banana growers hands by Easter, which means we will be transferring money next Thursday morning.  If you need more information, let us know and we will send you the details.  Every bit of help counts.




Dear Ones, 

This weekend it was Blanca’s birthday and  Heather made her her favourite cake and also Ellen who is in charge of things in the warehouse made her her favourite cake which is called tres leches.  The thing is that the cakes looked REALLY different even though they were the “same.”  Ellen’s cake was iced with whipping cream and decorated with halved cherries and the cake that Heather made well….the first thing I said to her was “Heather, you’re supposed to put your cake in the oven and bake it.”  So I gather that this recipe for three milk cake has something to do with baking a sponge cake that is then soaked in three milks: evaporated milk, condensed milk and heavy cream.   Ellen’s cake had the appearance of being a rather rich yummy cake, and Heather’s looked like she tried to bake it in the dishwasher.  But you know what, it tasted damn good because of the soaking part.  And Heather’s got an extra soaking so it was extra good.  And there was more of it because it looked weird.  So….winning.




HOT SHOTS, APR. 24TH, 2016

Dear ones,

How is our use of MailChimp working for you?  This is the first time I’ve done Hot Shots in this way, and honestly, I’m loving it.  It’s so pretty!  I get to choose colours!




HOTSHOTS – NOV. 30TH, 2015

Dear Ones,

I have little to share but that the semester is almost through.  My friend came over yesterday with a carrot cake because she knew I wouldn’t go to her or even towards the outdoors, shackled as one can become to schoolwork.  I showed her some of my drawings and we tried on my shoes and then we laughed also…a lot.  It was so nice of her to drop by out of the blue and give me the gift of cake and positive human cintact.  I wonder if campuses have a kind of unbridled craze of freedom after exams are out, followed by complete calm and silence.   Students have been trapped, and compressed and the pressure only mounts and mounts until it suddenly just isn’t there.  I am so tired.  I have bags under my eyes and all I eat is toast and tahini over the sink (and sometimes cake ;).  I bought some bright red high heeled clogs on the internet from Sweden (aka The North Pole) and they should be turning up right when Burnaby Moutnain kicks me out and I just don’t know if it’s gonna be a good combo: a very short duration of pure and unbridled academic freedom after a period of intense study, plus incredibly awesome shoes.  Sounds good.  And also bad.  But mostly good.
