Shirley’s Scribbles – September 2022

One never knows what a summer will bring. This summer has had some unexpected happenings for me.

Firstly in July, Almonte’s newest food truck The Big Cheese  unveiled their menu including The Shirley Fulton sandwich. A delightful multi cheese sandwich with slices of pear, just the perfect amount of Fulton’s Maple Butter and grilled to perfection!  Check out The Big Cheese menu ; they have an awesome variety of sandwiches, salads and more!   You will find their colourful truck on Ottawa Street at the roundabout in Almonte.

August brought another surprise when Dairy Distillery served their first The Shirley cocktail. After a great deal of testing by the Vodkow Team, they created  a perfectly balanced and delicious cocktail using Tasha’s Table pickled cherries  and Fulton’s Maple Syrup.  You can pick up a Shirley Cocktail Box or enjoy at their new cocktail bar.  They offer guided tours as well!  

Al and I were thrilled to announce our new great-granddaughter’s arrival on Tuesday, August 30th.     Mom & Dad, Madeline and Ryan along with big sister, Audrey, were very excited to welcome Everley Georgia.   

September is also off to a great start!   Congratulations to Equator Coffee and their new location in Stittsville.  They are all set to celebrate and we will be on site with them on SaturdaySeptember 10th.  We hope to see you there!   

Join us to celebrate Dairy Distillery’s grand opening of their great new Vodkow Bar & Tasting Room on Thursday, September 22nd beginning at 4pm into the evening.   Enjoy a Shirley Cocktail or Maple Cream sample.  Our Fulton’s Team will be at the party unveiling our new Maple Syrup Infusions. Come sample them all! Which infusion will be your favourite?   Hummingbird Chocolate, Equator Coffee, Cinnamon, Jalapeño or Vanilla.

I hope everyone has had a summer like I have.  Lots of time with family, friends, sunshine, grandkids, great-grandkids celebrating birthdays, warm campfire evenings, weddings and more.   I am so blessed.  Life is good!
