Rumble in the Bay and Harvest Foods-Menu Stop.

1 Sep

For our first week on our menu, we’ll be stocking up in Bigfork.  Need a reason to drive to the east side of the valley other than the gorgeous views?  Stop by on Sunday and enjoy Electric Avenue as it sports Rumble in the Bay.  This year they will also be featuring a customized Bicycle show for the 18 and under crowd, complete with prizes!

Only a a few recipes will be listed this week, buying a little extra ingredients to roll into the next.  We’ll  use the stock to fuel our menu forward from week to week.
