Ahhh, summer, lazy summer! What to eat June 23-27, 2014

I truly love summer and the days lacking in schedule…our son is away for a week and the house is quiet. For me and my husband, a week like this usually translates to late dinners consisting of seafood and salads or simply cheese, bread and wine. I also have the opportunity to experiment with vegetarian dishes and light fare that our son does not prefer. Here’s a sampling of what I consider an adult menu…
I am limiting pick-up to just Monday and Tuesday this week, so if you want dinner for Monday, please reply by 4pm Sunday. For Tuesday pickup, I need to receive your order by Noon on Monday.  To order, please use the Contact tab (or email butterfieldgourmet@gmail.com) and tell me which items you would like and what day you would like to pick up at my Preston Commons location.

Pick up is from 4-6 pm, Monday or Tuesday at 8115 Preston Rd, Suite 140, inside the Cafe Gourmet on the Go shop

Salad: Fresh Fruit Salad with Blueberry Vinaigrette – field greens, nectarines, strawberries and blueberries with toasted almonds.  $15 serves 2-3 GF

Meatless Entree: Raw Zucchini Salad with Lemon & Parmesan – no way would my kid eat this one, but I think it’s better than a bowl of pasta.  $20 serves 4 GF

Quiche: Arugula & Mushroom with Italian cheeses.  $20/pie serves 4-6**

Entree: Fried Brown Rice with Shrimp & Sugar Snap Peas – light Asian fare is not always easy but this dish is just about 400 calories per serving! $30 serves 4. GF

Dessert: French Lemon Tart – silky lemon custard begs to be topped with sweetened whipped cream! $20/pie

  • GF crust is available for the quiche or any of the pot pies. Additional charge applies.

Coming next week:  Lots of pies and salads that are so lovely to take to all of your July 4th celebrations!  Quantities will be limited so order early.
