December Offerings … and what’s to come

Most of you have likely put up your holiday decorations and are busy shopping & wrapping.  Me…not so much.  Too cold and rainy.  Bah, humbug. 

We do have food to keep you warm in this weather, though.  Soups and stews are on our menu until we get out from under our down comforters in March.  In addition to Posole, French Onion Soup, and Chicken & Dumplings, we have 15-Bean (don’t ask me to name them all) Soup with Pecan Smoked Jalapeno Sausage.  This week we’ve also been serving Salmon Cakes with Remoulade Sauce along with Eggplant Parmesan, and we’ll be cooking up Beef Burgundy and other new soups & stews next week to usher in the holidays.  The Chocolate Lava Cake is such a hit that we’ll be serving it for a while, too.  And as you warm up in our cozy little space, have a cup of Wassail or a Vodka Infusion.

News for the holidays:

We will be taking some time off after Christmas. We’ll be closed from December 24th and will re-open Tuesday, January 3rd.  We’ll have new menu items for you, and give you a rotation of special features throughout each month!

Wassail’s a-heating!

Hopefully everyone had a nice Thanksgiving holiday – I took laziness to a new level by sleeping late every day, watching old movies non-stop, and ignoring the dust bunnies (which may have made the transformation to deadly dust rabbits) under my beds. We started drinking wassail on Thanksgiving and decided to serve it here this weekend and beyond! It’ll warm you up all night long – and make you forget you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping (or like me, haven’t started it).

Warming you up this week: Potato-Corn Chowder and Chili. Along with our usual home-cooked fare, we’ve got wonderful stone-ground cornbread muffins and pumpkin mousse cheesecake, too, and this weekend we’ll be featuring Pasta a la Norma (yeah, go look it up – interesting story…and why can’t I have a pasta named after me?) and Molten Chocolate Cakes.

Leslie tells me that we’re keeping Martini Tuesdays. She’ll change up the mix a little bit (and keep bringing us ideas, peeps – I can’t wait for the Lavender-Infused Martini) but as usual, will keep it fun.

We had a great brunch last weekend – we’ll be thinking about a repeat sometime soon. Come see us to have a relaxing moment after the holiday traffic & shopping madness.
