When we sit down to menu plan, we think about how we want people to feel when they eat our food. We want our food to be comforting, cozy and like we’re all cooking together: sharing food, laughs, and good times. So, when you tuck into those decadent baked potatoes, that hearty tomato chowder, or the buttery galettes, think of us! And know we’re smiling with you.
Rainy weather calls for cozying up indoors. And our menu this week should be perfect for just that. Comforting roasted root veg and lentil loaf. Warming curry noodle soup. And one of our favorite soul-satifsying foods: smothered burritos. Stay dry, stay cozy, and dig in!
As temperatures cool and the leaves start to fall, our cooking starts to change and we find ourselves reaching for warming, comforting spices. Think: cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, paprika, cardamom, star anise, cumin, and coriander — all of these spices are featured this week’s meals. So revel in the menu’s coziness, friends, and inhale the scents of Fall!

And the week is looking up! Spicy buffalo sauce laden lettuce wraps with a cooling house-made ranch and crispy crunchy slaw filled with local veg.
