Fall 2009

Cakes & Ale Fall 2009

We had a great time at our "Murder Mystery Dinner Theater" Sunday Supper on November 1st, 2009! These are a few picts from "Murder on the Orient Express:"

Here are some of our guests in costume, studying their lines to get ready to play their part.

We created a menu with classic dishes from the 1920's, so the finale was a flambe where the chefs came out of the kitchen and fired crepe Suzette tableside.

The garden is in full swing, with our new "Hoot Owls" monitoring the garden to keep the bunnies away (which did work for awhile!).

We have fall lettuces, baby kale, carrots, turnips, radishes, and kohlrabi growing now. The kale graced our "veggie bowl" for a few weeks and the lettuces are now being used in our salads. We may have some broccoli and cauliflower if the rabbits don't get them first!

On the menu now, braised striped bass in a tomato/red wine sauce, and a beautiful salad with lettuces and Ashley Farms Guinea Hen.
