Lunch Menu: Week of August 5, 2014

Wow, what a weekend we had – with big-time birthdays and Spindrift wine dinners on Saturday night!
We made a fancified corn dog with pickled corn kernels, fennel and red onion salad, turmeric aioli (tried to make it look like french’s mustard) and a disk of pork belly garnished mortadella dipped in corn dog batter and deep fried!
Yum, and good whimsical fun. Tabitha from Spindrift was in the Farmstand with her kids when the menu discussion began. The kids (or I?) said corn dogs…and that was that.
