Menu for 12/13-12/16

Well, it is the last week before the break, and I think the whole community at Calhoun is eager for Friday. This week we have a few new dishes and some solid classics.

To start the week we are serving a new chickpea and coconut stew with wilted spinach. We start by making our own curry paste with lemongrass, markrut lime leaves, ginger, garlic, shallot, fresh turmeric and a special blend of spices. This is sautéed with sweet onions and simmered in coconut milk. To that we add chickpeas and root spinach. To finish this stew we have lemon wedges and fresh mint & cilantro. This is served with one of the new favorite breads this year, fluffy naan and warm basmati rice.

We continue to recieve absolutely stunning produce from our friends at Lancaster Farm. See this impressive Swiss chard they sent today!


The team is excited;)

Close up of this beauty.

For the rest of the week we have some classic menu items, including turkey meatloaf, the famous sweet potato purée, chicken paprikas over egg noodles and to finish out the week breakfast for lunch! We always finish our breakfast for lunch with a little French toast made with local challah bread, and this week we are topping it with a seasonal fresh cranberry and satsuma sauce.

In addition to the menu below we also have our salad bar section of the line that has a rotation of seasonal salads, hard boiled eggs, plain pasta, and always fresh seasonal fruit.

Enjoy your winter break!
