Hello Awesome Davenport’s Daily Delights Friends, Neighbors & Customers! I’ve been feeling a lot of loss and love lately. So, I figured why not incorporate my strong feelings into Davenport’s Daily Delights and share some feelings and traditions with everyone. We are cooking Tuesday and Thursday next week and the menu is available for orders on the website.
First, guess what is back again?!? Hatch Chiles! Not only are these beauties delicious, but they are also good for you!! One medium Hatch Chile pepper has as much vitamin C as six oranges and contains high amounts of so many additional vitamins!! Plus, they are known to speed up your metabolism!! So, I’m holding my traditional Hatch Chilies Day on Tuesday next week (and rounding it out with our awesome Stuffed Day foods)! I want to share love, health and tradition this day!
Thursday, we are bringing back our famous ‘Thanksgiving in August’ Day . . . We found some lovely ‘meanings’ for the well-known, traditional Thanksgiving holiday. Why don’t we all think about these as we enjoy these delicious foods a few months early. I’d like to share my love, traditions and struggles together this day!
Meaning of Thanksgiving (Expressions of Gratitude):
- To gather in unity – celebration of a common purpose. It is a reconciliation of differences as well as a time of healing. In sharing our victories and struggles, we find strength and hope.
- To teach the young – In stories retold, each generation brings purpose and significance to the richness of their heritage. “Thanksgiving Family Legacies”
- To prepare the heart – In gratitude, we reflect upon all of the gifts (family, friends, health) that fill our lives. By ‘giving thanks,’ we choose to extend ourselves and give to others less fortunate.
Be sure to get your orders in by 8pm the evening before. Delivery is daily between 4:00pm and 6:00pm. If you will not be home, please leave a cooler out.
