We’ve been hearing this, or some version of this, a lot over the past few days. Sorry everyone. The Blue Oyster Mushroom Sandwich is leaving to make way for the Heirloom Tomato. And Nancy (I think I got your name right?) was almost in tears when she came to HSQ this evening. I felt so bad for her that I bought her a zucchini sandwich.
Even as we mourn the loss of the Blue Oyster, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
1. We’re thinking one day will dedicate a permanent slot to a mushroom sandwich on the menu, if we can work out a sourcing arrangement with Rhode Island Mushroom Co. What do you think?
2. Rhode Island Mushroom Co. has agreed to do a 12-week fall/winter Mushroom CSA for Clover customers. Get a different mushroom each week. Maybe you’ll come up with the next blockbuster mushroom sandwich.
