It’s time to talk about the cantaloupe incident. In my defense, I am a reasonably experienced cantaloupe buyer and had never experienced a cantaloupe malfunction. Will this thing go off?! But that Wednesday was the day. I approached the melon table at Safeway innocently enough, having no idea what awaited me. I selected a small watermelon with no difficulty. Then I began looking for a good cantaloupe.
We are blessed at St. Placid to have a wonderful chef, Nicolas Koska, cooking our meals. He has been with us for about a year and a half now and continues to surprise and amaze us with his creative, delicious meals. He also makes desserts and pastries and makes all our bread; sourdough, rye, dinner rolls, slider buns, you name it, Nico makes it.
