i just checked the forecast for tomorrow...it's depressing.
if you plan on hibernating, swing by my table at the market first to stock up on food. my menu is back to normal & i have lots of classic comfort foods to get you through this first official cold snap.
i made three new main courses this week.
the first is the ultimate in comfort food - smokey mac & cheese. it's seriously cheesy with foxhill cheese curds, parmesan, mozzarella & aged cheddar. there's also double smoked bacon, roasted tomatoes, corn, scallions & a touch of chipotle to add extra smokiness.
small $9 large $18
then i made sweet & spicy pork meatballs using getaway farm's pastured pork. the sauce it nice & tangy and filled with bell peppers, pineapple, carrots, green onions, lime & cilantro. it's served with a side of basmati rice. it's both gluten & dairy free.
small $10 large $20
and lastly, i made moroccan beef meatballs using getaway farm's grassfed beef. they're served in a piquant tomato sauce with fennel seed, sumac, dates, olives, roasted peppers, zucchini & swiss chard. the side dish is harissa quinoa with toasted almonds, green onions & citrus. this is another gluten free, dairy free option.

the salads this week are exactly the same as last week: potato & kale, beet & wheatberry, broccoli & bacon.
i do have a couple of new sweet selections this week.
gingerbread cupcakes will be back for the holiday season.
gluten free, spicy chocolate brownies are back.
and i have a brand new treat!
i'm calling them snickerdoodle muffins. they're muffins that are rather reminiscent of cake doughnuts. i added a touch of lemon to make them a bit more interesting & then rolled them in cinnamon sugar to add to their doughnut qualities. i think that they'd be excellent with a cup of coffee for a market morning treat :)
ok time to rest up before another busy weekend...i'm not really relishing the thought of packing the car at 4:30 tomorrow morning in the freezing cold...stupid winter.
