guys, the availability of good produce in our rural resort town is AWFUL, and even what is here is absurdly expensive. Would you believe it's $14 for a pint of organic blueberries? Or $1.99 for an organic lemon?

We have primo meat for days, but the meal services allow us to keep our diet full of variety while simultaneously helping my wife become a better cook. If we lived in a normal market, we'd go to the grocery store for all that stuff, but it is a viable solution to an ongoing problem here.

If anything is ever going to make me leave Colorado, it will probably be food.

But if you believe in organic sustainable food, then...

ok so every time i am scooping at the farmers market, which runs until 8pm, I inevitably wind up scooping until about 830 because there are always some folks who wander over and get in line before I'm able to start breaking down; worth mentioning that this happens almost exclusively to me because I'm one of the few people serving a dessert item...

so every week there's this internal battle where I say to myself "Ok, tonight I am done at X, no ifs ands or buts. The moment I get a break in the line, I'm gonna pull the menu and start clearing off the tables, and anyone else who shows up has to be told no."

so tonight I had already reached this point of no return when a black girl showed up and asked if I was still open. She is literally one of 2-3 black women in Big Sky, and she is not a 1%er (to the best of my knowledge, anyway). I told her that we were done but I felt awful about it.

Do the rules of professional hospitality change depending on the ethnicity and/or gender of the guest?
Does an ice cream cone make up for the entire spectrum of black suffering at the hands of white people?
Was my saying no to her request an indictment of my white male privilege?

Food Dilemmas.

Giving her ice cream would have been racist

Food Dilemmas.

As a food vendor, I think there's an obligation to serve until the line is gone. Really, does it matter 8:30 or 8:45? Ultimately, that lady, whom you chose to tell us was black, could easily wonder 'why me?' ... being one of only a few black women in your area, it would be easy to draw a line to racism if I was her. Is it really worth saving a few minutes by telling this lady you're done? I guess the real questions are 1. Are you trying to gain or lose business? 2. Are you trying to make people happy by serving them ice cream or just trying to get home as quickly as you can so you can continue rm'ing?

Oh damn, thip is really through the looking glass on this one...

If it helps my case at all, I had already packed up my ice cream and tossed all my utensils into the sink. So to scoop for her, I would have had to take the cover off my cold-plate cart, open the thing up, tell her what flavors I had, dig the tubs out, wash and sanitize an ice cream scoop, and then get paper service items back out. All for $4.50 for a double scoop...

But I hear you 100% on the "why me" feeling she may have experiences, and that is what has felt so wrong about this.

Why are you throwing your utensils into the sink when there's a line?

Why are you saying no to more money?

Why her?!

I'm over the rainbow on this, trag!

There was a break in the line; I had about six people there, they were served, and then I had nobody for about five minutes; I used that time to start breaking down.
