Long day today, but with some lovely moments to buoy me along through the heavy times. Woke early to get the Cinnamon Rolls rolled out and rising, the Stone Fruit Cobblers and the Strawberry Tartes baked and the Biscuits baked. We had a pretty full roster of orders today, which always feels good. Good to be useful, good to feel like we are providing a service to those who need or want a little pick-me-up or a change from their own culinary adventures, or who want to gift a friend a meal.
Got to have a sidewalk chat with Steve, and Frank from the neighborhood, and quick catch up with Jim and Tim, and then headed to the East Bay. San Leandro, Oakland, Martinez, Walnut Creek and Danville today. Got to see the little girls, and share a few laughs, and meet a few new customers. Very last order of the day was a sidewalk visit with Emma and Irina. So hard not to hug that little bundle of joy!
Our regular menu below is good for Friday. Orders for SF pick-up and delivery should be placed by tonight or early tomorrow morning.
The Meals on Heels menu for this Friday is also available to our customers directly. You can go to our site www.marthaavenuefood.com and order what you’d like to pick up (or have delivered) this Friday afternoon.

I am headed to bed. Tomorrow is a long prep day that has to begin with cleaning the kitchen and making a trip to the grocery stores. PG&E has a planned power shut off in our neighborhood early on Friday, so we need tomorrow to be super efficient and get things sorted. I hope that you are finding some peace and kindness towards yourself and the world around you. Sleep well, hug yourself for me xoxo
