On the hunt for Matzo(Matza?,Matzoh?) Meal

 We are suffering from Matzo Ball withdrawal! Usually I have been able to find Matzo Meal at our local Sobey's but for some reason for the last six months or so they have not stocked it. I contacted the company who makes it and was directed to their Canadian distributor. He has not gotten back to me in ten days now so I have given up on him. So off to Brighton to the Sobey's to talk to someone there about it. The farm in the photo above is on the way to Brighton. Pardon the blurry photos but they are taken with a cheapie point and shoot camera, flying along in the car.

 This windmill is at Hollandale Nurseries. Beautiful nursery with any and all plants you could ever want.
 Here is the goat farm. We don't see them out in the yard too often so this was a treat.
 Gorgeous old brick house on a very large piece of land. In our thirty years here I don't recall it ever being up for sale.
 Another beautiful old brick house. For years they ran a farm stand with such fresh fruit and vegetables but gave it up last year. I do miss it.

 I just like the contrast between the sky and the green fields in this photo. We had a good bit of rain in the last twenty four hours so everything looks very lush.
Look who showed up after being gone for ten days or so. She stayed and ate for about an hour before being scared off by a black squirrel. The grackle looks mesmerized!

The result of us going to Sobey's was they are talking to the Canadian supplier and will order us a case of Matzo Meal. Thirty six boxes. Small boxes but still thirty six! Anyone need any Matzo Meal?

Take care and enjoy your day.                         Robin

  1. I love those old, rambling homes, especially when they're well-kept, well-loved. If only those walls could talk, though. :-)

    Nice to see Butterscotch...it's "Butterscotch," right? She has a pretty tail. Not mangy-looking at all. Wonder what was going through the grackle's mind!

    36 boxes of Matzo Meal? That will keep you for a while. LOL.

    1. I love those old houses too. Such history!
      Yes, that is Butterscotch. She showed up around noon and has been back and forth all afternoon. About an hour ago I put out some peanuts for her. She sat and enjoyed them.
      We will have enough Matzo Meal for a looooonnnggg time. I will freeze most of it.
      Kim,take care and talk soon.

    1. I will just be so happy to have it again. We really have missed having Matzoh balls in soup.

    2. that's the type of house I want to live in again! Did you see the deal at Sobey's this week cauliflower or broccoli, 3 for $5. Great deal. Don't like Matzoh balls, funny consistency for me.

    3. Those old houses are lovely. I did see the broccoli/cauliflower deal when we went in but I had already bought some at the farmer's market. Matzoh balls are an acquired taste. I do love them!

  4. I'm here for a first visit and very much enjoyed this ride along. The houses are both lovely.
    I am intrigued by the color of that squirrel. I've never seen one like that.

    1. Thank you for stopping by! enjoy your blog too.
      I do love old houses. We have a large number here in Trenton.
      We have a small population of albino squirrels here. We are lucky to have Butterscotch as a semi-regular visitor.

  5. I'm Jewish and I never even make Matzoh ball soup!! When I eat it when someone else makes it, I eat the Matzoh balls and leave the soup :)

    1. That's funny! I do love the matzoh balls. Very simple to make. I will post the soup recipe I use shortly,when we get the matzoh meal.

Spring has definitely sprung around here. The bird feeders are emptied every day and baby squirrels are visiting. I didn't realize ...
