Eat Your Greens: meals this week :)

Hello all,

I hope you’re able to get some of the gorgeous sunshine today; I can’t believe how blue the sky is. I was up at 6am this morning to do a cake commission, then got a bit baked in the sun whilst frolicking in the garden – and fell asleep for 3 hours! This email is considerably late due to snoozing, whoops.

Due to the popularity of the ‘Goldie Box’ last saturday, I shall be doing it again this saturday. The asparagus is locally grown at Barley Wood (where I try to get as much of the EYG veg as possible) and is absolutely stunning.

There’s another Date Night Box this Friday, and of course the Roast as usual on sunday.

The Date Night box this week promises lots of locally grown seasonal veg & herbs, and presents a very ‘summery’ array of flavours.

As always, thank you so much for your supporting EYG in this trying time.

W/B 18th May EYG Meals!

Hello all,

Here’s the EYG food info for this week! Due to the success of the Date Night Box I thought I’d do another one this weekend. It’s for 2 sharing, whether that’s with a lover / pal / sibling / a cardboard cut-out… it’s just nice to share food 🙂 

There will not be a burger night this week as I’m doing breakfast on saturday instead: ‘Goldie Lox’ is now ‘Goldie Box’… (yes, I’m very proud of that one, haa!)

Hope you are all keeping as well as can be ❤

Babs x

P.s. This weeks’ kitten photo is almost unbearable so make sure you’re sat down!

(Avocados are ridiculously expensive at the moment, so here I’ve subbed them for some delicious, locally grown asparagus! Personally, I think it’s going to be better…)

Finally, here’s a ridiculous picture of a tiny kitten head emerging from the end of the bed, to investigate that paper ball. They’re climbing up and into everything at the moment. We can hear the thundering of their tiny legs under the bed in the morning as they run around; it’s really quite delightful.

Take care, and thank you so much for supporting EYG through this time.

Meals this coming week (27th April onwards), and yes, of course: more kitten news

Hello hello,

I’ve always been transparent with our customers, as I think the world is a better place with honesty and openness.  This week I am feeling a little overwhelmed with worry about the future and sustainability of EYG as we continue this bizarre way of life.

My amazing friend, and front of house volunteer, Chelle (some of you may have met them when collecting your food during the last 3 weeks) won’t be helping out anymore due to other commitments, so I’m doing it all on my tod from now on. As you can imagine, that’s quite an epic workload for one person!

As a result of these things, I will only be running two meals this week as I try to manage my anxiety levels whilst maintaining trade and ensuring your bellies are nurtured.

On that note, as I’m by myself, when you come to the door to collect your food you’ll need to just give me a little shout – as I’ll most likely be darting around the kitchen like a wild-eyed horse.

  • FRIDAY 1st MAY / CURRY NIGHT / £15 / 5-8pm collections
  • SUNDAY 3rd MAY / SUNDAY ROAST / £12 / 12-2pm, 4-6pm collections

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Friday 1st May / CURRY NIGHT / £15 / 5-8pm collections / roast squash & butterbean curry, red lentil dal with beetroot and caramelised onions, onion pakoras & rice. This is gluten free, nut free and of course, vegan.

Sunday 3rd May / SUNDAY ROAST / £12 / 12-2pm, 4-6pm collections / roast potatoes, cranberry, seed & quinoa roast, caramelised carrots, braised red cabbage, seasonal greens, roasted squash wedge, red onion & beetroot gravy. There’s also usually either some roasted beetroot or swede as a cheeky extra too! GF / vegan

_________________________________________________________________________________________

To book either of the above please email eygbristol@gmail.com with a relevant subject header, and a rough idea of the time you’d like to collect.

DO NOT REPLY to this mailout, as its a ‘donotreply’ address and I won’t get your email.

*Kittens!* Content Warning: kittens are at optimum cuteness level and thus, you may cry when you see this photo.

This week they all escaped from the kitten room, and I discovered Perla under our bed. Then the others were found crawling around under there too. Here is Perla immediately after discovery:

This week’s T/A meals (and kittens update, of course)

Hello all – I hope you’ve had an alright week – personally the sunshine has been very helpful for my optimism levels. Following on from that, I am doing FOUR takeaways this week!

  • WEDS 15th: BURGER NIGHT
  • FRIDAY 17th: TAPAS FOR TWO
  • SATURDAY 18th: BREAKFAST
  • SUNDAY 19th SUNDAY ROAST (of course, I’ll never stop)

BURGER NIGHT / £15 / 5pm-8pm collections

Black bean, roasted sweet potato & red onion burger, in a forest bakery bun (or GF, please make sure to request GF if needed), with harissa pineapple relish, homemade mayo, violife cheese, oakleaf lettuce, tomato, hand cut chips and creamy coleslaw.

(No free drinks this week as I’ve run all my stocks down!)

TAPAS FOR TWO / £25 / 5pm-8pm collections

I thought I would do something special for friday night- whether you share this with a family member, friend or lover, this is a takeaway for 2 people! (apologies that I cannot split the dishes, they are designed to feed a pair).  This will consist of:

patatas bravas / mixed olives / crispy banana blossom with garlic aioli / tortilla / espinacas con garbanzos (contains ALMONDS)

SATURDAY BREAKFAST / £9 / 10am-1pm collections

After the success of last weeks’ breakfast, I’m going to do it all again!

You get: two shroomdogs / a very generous portion of tofu hash with mushroom, broccoli & wild garlic / balsamic roasted tomato / hash brown / Forest Bakery sourdough (or GF, please specify if needed!) / baked beans.

EYG SUNDAY ROAST / £12 / 12pm-2pm and 4pm-6pm collections

It’s my favourite thing to make, and I’m very happy you all seem to still want it, even if it’s a takeaway. It’s all GF & nut free too.

Quinoa, cranberry & seed roast / roast potatoes / braised red cabbage / maple glazed carrots / braised red cabbage / seasonal greens / beetroot & red onion gravy

…there’s usually some bonus roasted beetroot and/ or roasted swede thrown in too 😉

______________________________________________________________________________

Please EMAIL eygbristol@gmail.com to book any of the above

****please DO NOT purchase on the website before we have arranged collection via email first.***

___________________________________________________________________________

I am trying to keep the cost to you down as much as possible as I know we are all struggling at the moment, yet I have to break even to keep the cafe going, so I hope you feel that the pricing is fair <3

Thank you so much for your support, it means so much to me, and for the future of EYG.

Babs x

KITTEN UPDATE:

They’re two weeks old and have all opened their eyes now! You can’t see that in this photo however, as they’re a’cuddlin like little spoons:

More T/A this week, plus sunday roast info & saturday breakfast

Happy Monday everyone, I hope the sunshine is bringing you some cheer in these bizarre times.

T/A INFO FOR THIS WEEK:

  • Weds 8th April: Another BURGER NIGHT… Based on the success of last week’s burger night, I’ll be doing another one this WEDNESDAY.  GF buns available upon request. (EYG burger, homemade mayo and pineapple harissa relish, forest bakery bun, lettuce, tomato, vegan cheese, chips & creamy coleslaw.) You’ll also have a free drink: the choice between a stout, an ipa, a red ale, or an organic karma cola (dependant on availability, you make your choice at the door) £16 / collections from 5-8pm
  • Saturday 11th April: BREAKFAST: I’ll be doing breakfast, involving shroomdogs, hash brown, tofu scramble (with mushrooms, broccoli, spinach & smoked paprika), roast tomato, baked beans & sourdough / gf toast. £9 / collections from 10am-1pm
  • Sunday 12th April: (Easter Sunday) SUNDAY ROASTS will be back again this week – and interest has been high, so get your email in and we can book you a collection spot asap. Just need to stress again that I have a very small kitchen, hence the limit on the number of roasts I can make – I am pushing it to maximum capacity, I assure you! £12 / collections from 12-2pm , 4-6pm

To book any of the above PLEASE EMAIL eygbristol@gmail.com – with a relevant subject line 

(Next week I’ll be doing a vegan TAPAS night! More info on that to come next monday.)

A lot of the wholesalers such as Essential are choosing to not supply cafes, only shops at the moment, due to demand – so this does have an impact on what I’m able to get / do. I’m doing my best to get yummy things out, and trying to keep the cafe scraping by as we navigate this pandemic together. As always, I’m super grateful for your support – thank you <3

T/A news and more (also, kittens!)

Hullo! I hope you’re all keeping safe and well.

  • This week I decided to do a few theme nights – Thursday is burger night, and Friday is ‘sticky fingers’ night; these were advertised on social media and sold out in 3 hours, so I shall definitely be doing more next week! Keep your eyes on the EYG facebook and instagram for timely info.
  • Sunday roasts will be every sunday. If you would like to book in for this week please email eygbristol@gmail.com so we can arrange a collection time for you. It’s filling up fast already!
  • Breakfast / brunch will also be featuring next week, however this will be different to the usual menu, mainly because of supply issues. So far I can tell you that Cwtch rolls will be making an appearance, and also as a breakfast option there will be a tofu hash (chunky tofu, smoked paprika, broccoli, red onion, spinach, and so forth) with forest bakery sourdough [or gf bread].

 

Some of you may know that our cat Vanjie was expecting; she gave birth on saturday to three beautiful little babies… in my wardrobe! This was a really beautiful thing for us in our home, especially in the current climate. So i just wanted to share a little bit of our joy with you 🙂
