SUMMER'S END

 SUMMER'S END

IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT WE ARE KNOCKING ON THE DOOR OF SEPTEMBER ALREADY.  DUE TO THE RELATIVELY MILD TEMPS AND RAIN EAST TEXAS HAS EXPERIENCED IN  2017, OUR USUAL SUMMER WEATHER DID NOT LEAVE US SWELTERING AND CRYING FOR RELIEF.  AS THIS IS BEING WRITTEN, OUR NEIGHBORS TO THE SOUTH ARE DEALING WITH CATASTROPHIC CONDITIONS BEYOND IMAGINATION.  OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO ALL THAT HAVE BEEN IMPACTED BY HURRICANE HARVEY AND THE RESIDUAL EFFECTS FROM IT.  

THE SCHOOL YEAR IS BACK IN SESSION AND WITH IT, A RETURN TO ROUTINES THAT ARE RELAXED DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS.  THE KITCHEN DRAWER HAS SOME GREAT NEW FINDS TO HELP WITH GETTING BACK IN THE GROOVE.  THE NEW PRODUCTS COVER A WIDE RANGE INCLUDING CUTLERY, COOKWARE, AS WELL AS FOOD PRESERVATION.  DID WE MENTION THAT THE KNIVES HAVE A 25 YEAR WARRANTY WITH A PRICE RANGE OF $18 FOR 3.5" PARING TO $33 FOR A 8" CHEF KNIFE?   GRIPSTICS WILL HELP WITH CORRALING THE BAGS OF SNACKS, DRIED PASTA, AND OTHER ITEMS THAT NEED TO BE RESEALED AFTER OPENING WITHOUT THE BULKY CHIP CLIPS THAT HOG DRAWER SPACE.  THE LENGTHS VARY FROM 5" TO 17" SO THERE IS GRIPSTIC  FOR EVERY NEED.  ONE OF OUR FAVORITE NEW ITEMS IS THE CUCINA WATERLESS HAND SOAP.  MANY USE HAND SANITIZER BUT A NUMBER OF THE BRANDS DRY OUT HANDS AND SMELL OF ALCOHOL.  THE CUCINA WATERLESS HAND SOAP LEAVES YOUR HANDS FEELING SOFT FOR HOURS WITH A LIGHT SCENT THAT DOESN'T REEK OF AN ALCOHOL SWAB.  THIS WILL MAKE A TERRIFIC TEACHER GIFT!

OUR COOKING CLASSES ARE ON TEMPORARILY ON HOLD AS CHEF ALYSSA WILHITE RECOVERS FROM SURGERY. SHE WILL BE BACK IN ACTION ON SEPTEMBER 16TH WITH A FAVORITE, FRESH FISH WITH RICK ORUCH OF SEA BREEZE SEAFOOD MARKET.  IF YOU ARE UNSURE ABOUT PREPARING AND COOKING FISH, THIS IS THE CLASS FOR YOU.  AS A BONUS, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ORDER FRESH FISH AND PICK UP IN THE STORE.  THIS IS ONE OF OUR MOST POPULAR CLASSES SO MAKE RESERVATIONS EARLY!  OUR SECOND CLASS FOR SEPTEMBER WILL BE FALL IN THE KITCHEN.   WE HAVE COORDINATED WITH THE CHEFS AT EMILE HENRY TO BRING A VARIED MENU OF RECIPES UTILIZING THE WIDE VARIETY OF EMILE HENRY COOKWARE AND BAKEWARE.  THERE WILL BE SPECIAL DISCOUNTS ON ALL EMILE HENRY PRODUCTS.

 THE KITCHEN DRAWER WILL BE CELEBRATING OUR 10TH YEAR IN OCTOBER.  WE HAVE BEEN BUSY PLANNING A NUMBER OF EVENTS TO CELEBRATE AND TO THANK YOU OUR FRIENDS AND CUSTOMERS FOR THE SUCCESS WE HAVE HAD.  STAY TUNED FOR DETAILS!
