Greetings on this decidedly fall-ish Monday!  There are some amazing smells coming from the Mon Ami kitchen this morning as our ever-creative Diane is busy working on a menu of warm autumn comfort food!  

Before I get to our menu, please make a note on your calendar for TWO upcoming estate sales that the gang is currently working …
10/31-11/1 – Friday & Saturday:  Treewood Estate – this is a tidy, well-maintained home full of nearly new furniture, including queen & twin beds, washer & dryer, frig, flat screen TV and potted outdoor plants.
11/6-7, Friday & Saturday:  Lakeside Estate – this two-story home is loaded with antiques, collectibles (do you love Pyrex and Jade-ite?), nearly new furniture, stackable washer & dryer, beds, old quilts, a huge selection of fabulous quilting fabrics, quilt frame …. I could go on, but I won’t (wink wink).  
This Week’s Menu …
Grilled Ham, Swiss & Apple Panini Sandwich
Soup:  Sweet Potato Sage

Wishing you Grace & Plenty,

This Week at Mon Ami

Greetings  on this lovely fall morning!  The weather has been spectacular here on the Oregon Coast and we’re meeting lots of new folks who have waited until school started to do some travelling.  For those of you who live elsewhere, I’ll let you in on a little secret … September is the BEST time to visit!

On Sunday afternoon, the Mon Ami Team catered a very special, landmark event – the 40th anniversary celebration of the Western Lane Community Foundation – which was hosted by our wonderful friends Tom Bassett & Rich Bailey at their beautiful home.  Tom & Rich (who we affectionately refer to as The Boys Next Door) are, in fact, our neighbors right next door at Florence Antiques.  The weather was PERFECT for an al fresco buffet, and the Mon Ami gang truly outdid themselves with a spectacular display.   Chef Diane’s Pork Tenderloin Wellington was amazing!   I’ll try to get some pictures up on the website this week, but suffice to say I’m pretty proud of my team ;)

Here’s this week’s menu at Mon Ami!
Shrimp Caesar Salad w/Shrimp
Soup:  Cream of Mushroom

Sweet & Sour Meatball Sandwich
Soup:  Roasted Butternut Bisque

Crab Melt, served open-face on our homemade Kaiser rolls

Our friend Leo the Produce Man continues to bring over beautiful corn on the cob, Willamette Valley tomatoes, peaches, apples, and bee-u-ti-ful squash.  His produce stand is right across the street in front of the old gas station – every Monday, Thursday & Saturday – and he’ll continue through October.  We so appreciate the opportunity to hand-pick such beautiful, locally sourced produce for our menu each week!

Have a lovely week!
