Back to School
The kids may be back in school full-time, remote, or some sort of hybrid, but no matter what, we’re hearing that 6 months into this pandemic, most folks have never cooked more in their lives! Don’t worry, we got you. Sam’s has a selection of premade, family meals that you can count on to feed your family and give you a break from cooking. Pick up yours today, heat and serve. Win-win.
Don’t forget to check out Sam’s deli meat selection and homemade rolls for your school lunches. Make your own hoagie OR come in and let us make one for you. Check out the menu here to see all the tasty options you can imagine. Call ahead and place your order so it’s ready when you arrive.
It’s Tomato Time!
Tomatoes are at their absolute peak right now. Ours are local, from Lancaster, and they’re the perfect combination of sweet with just the right amount of tang.
We like to make a mouthwatering Caprese salad and serve it with a crusty loaf of bread for a simple but excellent late summer meal that tastes as good as it looks. (It also takes next to no time at all and does not require an oven.)
- 4-5 tomatoes, sliced about ¼ to ½ inch thick
- Mozzarella, sliced about ¼ inch thick
- A handful of fresh basil leaves, washed and torn
- Good quality, extra virgin olive oil (might we suggest Diamante Verde brand available in store for $12.99 a liter)
- Balsamic vinegar
- Flaky sea salt
- Freshly ground pepper
Rotate tomatoes and mozzarella on a platter. Sprinkle with torn basil leaves. Drizzle with olive oil and Balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve with a freshly baked loaf of bread from Sam’s Italian Market and you’ve got yourself a simple dinner!
