Sunday Night Dinner

Since you totally don’t want to cook on Sunday, go to Vegetate for a tasty meal. Every Sunday from 4:30-8:30, dinner consists of ingredients purchased THAT day at the farmer’s market. I’m a big fan of eating locally, but am less a fan of cooking in my kitchen that doesn’t have an oven so I’m pleased about this development. To top it all off, wines by the glass are half off.

A sample menu from earlier this month (aside: YUM):

Grilled Breadline Ciabatta
with buttered Sunnyside radishes, braised greens and cherry tomato confit

Chilled Carrot, Apple and Ginger Soup
chamomile tea, wilted arugula & sesame crostini

Sauteed Farmer's Kale and Organic Yellow Oyster Mushrooms
Truck Patch okra, Wolaver's Pale Ale & shallots

Corn Grit Polenta
layered with Oatmeal Stout Black Beans, Sunnyside tomatoes, poblanos and onions,
Path Valley sweet potatoes & Mountain View greens

Grilled Truck Patch Brocolli
toasted almonds, swiss chard, arugula with pickled cucumber-dijon viniagrette

Persimmon Spice Cake
with lavender cashew, golden raisins, kiwi berries & a dollop of honey yogurt
