There are few things in life that I enjoy more than having a wonderful Christmas dinner with my family. For those of you from the Minneapolis/St. Paul area who are concerned with reducing your carbon footprint, you can buy locally grown cheeses and meet products right here on the St. Paul campus!
The Andrew Boss Lab of Meat Science,1354 Eckles Ave., houses both the Department of Food Science and Nutrition's Dairy Salesroom (open Wednesdays, 3-5 p.m.) and the Andrew Boss Laboratory of Meat Sciences' Meat Salesroom (open Wednesdays, 2-5 p.m.).
The Dairy Salesroom (room 166) has four flavors of holiday ice cream: pumpkin pie, cinnamon, eggnog, and peppermint chip. It also sells award-winning cheeses, including aged white cheddar, gouda, and two kinds of blue cheese.
The Meat Salesroom (room 26) in the lower level, offers a variety of meats and gift boxes that include steaks and roasts, assorted sausages, and University of Minnesota honey, maple syrup, and some varieties of U of M apples (depending on availability).
Have a tasty holiday!
