My favorite sign in all the world, or at least in all of the People's Republic of Cambridge

A store's sign on Cambridge Street, in Cambridge, MA.

The sign outside Mayflower Poultry Co. in Cambridge. I finally got around to buying one of their t-shirts today, which I look forward to wearing around my vegetarian chums.

sauteed chicken breast with a cream and caper sauce and crisped chorizo. beets and goat cheese with toasted pine nuts on greens. wild rice blend of four wild rices and regular long-grain brown, made with half chicken stock.


the chicken is from the mayflower poultry company in cambridge, famous for its sign that says "Live Poultry Fresh Killed". here is an article on it: and here is their own site:
