this week's menu

so i know i'm missing st. patrick's day, but i'm doing an irish inspired menu for tomorrow. i had planned on a fish pie for tomorrow but then i remembered - i have a massive beef brisket corning for homemade corned beef and cabbage. march is definitely flying by and i lost track of the date. i also have a nice slab of roselane farm double smoked bacon that i will be turning into quiche lorraine for sunday.

quiche lorraine with roselane farm double smoked bacon, caramelized onions and foxhill cheese (fresh for sunday)  $12

vegetarian quiche with oven roasted tomatoes, spinach and rancher acres goat cheese (fresh for sunday) $12

both flavours of quiche with be accompanied by a light salad of the first of the spring greens with a red wine vinaigrette and the quiche are baked in 9 inch pie plates so it's enough to feed four.
