The joy of cooking? Heck, what about the joy of eating?

Menus for the week of October 10th

What’s wonderful about good food is that if you focus solely on what’s in front of you, you can lose yourself in a dish, even if momentarily.

Here’s what we’ve got planned for this week:

  • Monday pairs up satisfying culinary bedfellows
  • Tuesday momentarily considers expatriating to Sayulita, Mexico
  • Wednesday imagines what a Bennigan’s in Beirut would serve
  • Thursday weds English & Italian cuisine in Marsala, Sicily
  • Friday hoots & hollers at a back-porch BBQ in Alabama

Picnic’s 2nd birthday party is just a month away, so mark your calendars for an ice cream social on Friday, November 11th! More details to come… though that’s really all you need to know.

Stop in, say hello, grab a bite to eat.
