The winter menu has a few changes that you’ll enjoy including Pimento Cheese; a Duck Confit flatbread and Shrimp Linguini. And the Chalkboard Features outstanding as usual. Cracker Crusted Rainbow Trout Garnished with a Red Pepper Remoulade; Grilled Swiss, Cheddar & Mozzarella Sandwich on Multi-Grain accompanied with Curried Potato Chips; Grilled Pork Chops Presented with a 3 Bean and Italian Sausage Ragout; Canadian Walleye and an Italian Dark Chocolate Olive Oil Cake. YUM!!
For me, Thanksgiving Day has always been the start of winter and the holiday season. The reminiscences of past years are dear: big turkeys and all that go with them. Grandmother made the pies until my sister Liz took over the duty. What pies they were. Pecan, sweet potato and pumpkin. All still warm from the oven and topped with real whipped cream. Mom was up at the crack of dawn readying the bird for roasting. Dad did the dressing which included everything but the kitchen sink. Then too all the little appetizers: Bar cheese stuffed celery, big black olives (a must have for my sister Kitty), Aunt Betty’s pickled beets and deviled eggs.
And, in the spirit of the holiday I give thanks. Thankful that I am not homeless or hungry and have the ability to help those who are; grateful for all the wonderful opportunities that I am given on a daily basis; proud of a remarkable staff that strives to satisfy not only Sharon and me, but each individual that walks through our door; glad for all the old friends that we see each day and thrilled for all the new ones we’ve made over the years and so appreciative of your compliments -- they kindle a fire in us to come back and do our best every day. Thank-you!
From the Bistro to your homes we wish you much Peace, Happiness, And a Million Dollar Day!
