Happy Times

This week we had a wonderful group come for lunch from Eugene. I don’t know what their favorite course was, but my favorite was the almond tart with fresh strawberries and cream.

Muffuletta on the Menu

muffuletta If you love a good ol’ muffuletta, you’d better get yourself to the GTF Farm Stand for lunch this week!  Featured on the menu is a muffuletta-inspired GTF porchetta sando, complete with mustard aioli, a caper-olive-mint spread, and our house pickled peppers.  This hefty sandwich is served with ceci (garbonzo bean) and carrot salad and is only $9.50.

Seafood chowder with rock fish, white shrimp, manila clams, and topped with farm fresh kale.  This chowder is creamy but not rich, with a hint of sweet tomato. And finally our lamb  sausage pizza with mozzarella and balsamic onions.

We love it here, and we hope you do too!
