Kuchera’s Mild Salsa is now available at Reeble’s South in Emporia. And at Gene’s Heartland Foods and Barleycorns in Wamego (Drew’s original hometown.)  I first met Drew Kuchera last year at the Emporia Farmers’ Market and have been enjoying Kuchera’s salsa ever since. I don’t buy any other brand anymore. Kuchera’s is it. I’ve followed Drew […]

The roller derby girls skated in the parade. Emporia’s team is the Veteran City Rollers. A floating haircut. Aboard a float, men get their heads shaved as a fundraising event to end childhood cancers. Casey Wilson waves from the Art Mobile. Our Art Mobile is beautiful. Dolly Madison, aka Interstate Baking Co., aka Hostess, showed […]

Casa Ramos

I’ve been holding onto a gift certificate that’s good at a number of Emporia merchants for a couple of months now, and decided last week that it was finally time to use it. Dave and I enjoyed a filling meal at Casa Ramos. I had seafood enchiladas. Dave enjoyed his huge meal, tres amigos. Some […]

Coveted vegetable of the day: fresh carrots. You have to get in line pretty early to get them. But the Emporia Farmers’ Market is stacked with plenty of green things. In February! Linda Simmons’ beautiful and delicious cookies. Mark Sherman’s recycled feed bags. He’s also looking for cat litter bags. He doesn’t have a cat […]
