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 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.
