Le Menu (what's available to order?)

The wind and cold snow blows, but it's warm and dry inside.  In the winter it's easy to forget just how many delicious greens are available.  This week, try our fresh sprouts with some wild greens, sip pine tea by your fire while reading your favorite book.
 
NEW THIS WEEK:
*** Mung bean sprouts
 
READY FOR THE COOK:
Wild sprout stir fry mix-in - - - a mix of sprouts, seasonal herbs, organic olive oil and your choice of extra mushrooms, beef or goat.  Just add to your favorite pasta, and cook according to the directions.
