Ah, Spring and New Beginnings.
Fruits and vegetables are just gorgeous as spring is in full swing (enjoy it now before the mosquitoes take us all away), so we are taking advantage of it. This week we’ve added another Spinach Salad, and this one has a Hot Bacon Dressing as well as Bacon (seems to be my theme ingredient), Sliced Egg, Mushrooms, and Red Onion. Posole Rojo is back with New Mexico Chiles – just add a little squeeze of lime and … perfection, especially with the Stone-Ground Corn Muffin! For those of you that are eyeing bikinis this summer (yes, I eye them, too, but only in catalogs), we have a Roasted Red Pepper Soup that is so tasty & good for you that even your bikini will be too big. Among other items, our Barbecue Pulled Pork Sandwiches are back and so is our Pesto (the basil is spectacular) with Sun-Dried Tomatoes. Mmmmm. Desserts: Crème Brulee, Chocolate Mousse with Chantilly Cream, Bananas Foster, Laura’s Bread Pudding, and Fruit with Chantilly Cream.
We sang and danced ourselves silly on St. Patrick’s Day when we gave it up for Karaoke. Super fun – so we’ll be scheduling that again, along with another Cheese Class and a Wine Tasting. And on a personal note, Easter is only a couple of weeks away, and I plan to put away a rasher or two of bacon that day. Just so you know.
