I bet you all noticed that the cherry tomatoes are back! Kyle, from 1000 Stone Farm brings them on Thursday with his greens. So good. I love his greens and eat them most of the summer but one thing I also love is chopped romaine hearts (ask if you don’t see any, we usually have some out back), halved cherry tomatoes and blue cheese dressing. Just those three things on a hot night can do it for me.
Here’s a great blue cheese dressing recipe. Also excellent for wings. When I buy the Misty Knoll chicken legs I often cut them in half and freeze/use them separately. Chicken thighs are one of the most versatile proteins ever and some the best tasting chicken I think. I throw the drum sticks in a separate freezer bag and when I’ve got 8 or so I make “wings,” much meatier and more satisfying that regular wings. We are happy to cut the legs for you if you’d like. As always, it’s great if you can let us know ahead time but we can usually accommodate.
Blue Cheese dressing:
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- 1.5 Tbl spoons minced onion
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- ¼ cup minced basil
- ¼ cup sour cream
- 1 TBL lemon juice
- 2 tsp rice wine vinegar
- 3 to 4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
Shake it up baby and let chill before serving.
Fish orders are due by noon on Thursday. Call/email early if you want scallops or char. Minimum 1 Pound orders. There will be some cod and salmon available both tomorrow and Thursday. Oysters and clams are available by the 25 count, don’t forget about the 2# bags of peeled and de-veined shrimp (great thing to keep in the freezer for a quick swanky dinner or BBQ) and there is Halibut again this week, slightly higher price I think.
If you want chicken breast, chicken legs, sausage or steaks please also let us know and we will try to get that all in house as well. We are going to bring in rib eye so that we will have some of those glorious big steaks for the fourth. Please let us know if you would like some of that as well.
Special orders are ready after 2 on Friday and any extra fish would be available in the front cooler at that point (we do not reserve this).
