This Week at Mon Ami!

Leave a comment

Greetings! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! I was in Brooks over the weekend with The Nice Catholic Boy for the Great Oregon Steam-up. And just in case you were there, too … YES, that was me (and Miss Bella) riding on a vintage John Deere tractor in the parade! (Some of you may recall my infamous tractor purchase a couple of years ago … which is the last time I let Gary Foglio and my husband run off to a tractor show unsupervised. I’ m a little smarter now and purposely left the checkbook at home this time!) It was great fun to see all the old steam engines and farm equipment on display … and still running!

Lots and lots of folks visiting our town this summer- we’ve made new friends from all over the world and have also seen many returning customers who’ve come back for a visit. Last week, we met a young man who was here with his wife and little girl. The last time he was here, he was a high school student and was on vacation with his mother, who owned an antique shop called “The Merry Widow.” They had signed our wall in 2006 and he had brought his family back to sign it again! His mom has since passed away and he asked us to take a picture of them next to her signature. After 17 years, there’s not a lot of room left on the wall to write on, but we love it that people are still leaving their mark on it and making Mon Ami a part of their memories!

We’ll be introducing our new menu this week that highlights some of the wonderful changes Chef Diane has been making in the café! You’ll find some delicious new salads in the deli case, alongside some of your old favorites. AND, the Bundt is Back!!! Remember those? This week’s dessert is a Swirled Chocolate and Lemon Glazed Buttermilk bundt cake!

Here’s this week’s menu …

Monday:
The Monte Cristo grilled like french toast and filled with ham and swiss
Soup: Tomato Carrot Bisque

Tuesday:
Old-fashioned Sloppy Joes on Kaiser Rolls … savory-sweet and messy filled house baked Kaiser rolls with a side of potato salad
Soup: Greenport soup (fresh green pea)

Wednesday:
Stuffed Zucchini … roasted zucchini stuffed with sauteed mushrooms, onions and tomatoes, rice and topped with cheese
Soup: Beefy Onion

Thursday:
Santa Fe Chicken Wrap … Spinach wrap filled with grilled chicken marinated with a south of the border dressing
Soup: Creamy Corn and Veggie

Friday:
BBQ Pork on Cornbread … Savory BBQ Pork nestled between corn bread squares along with slaw. Knife and fork provided
Soup: Clam Chowder

This Week’s Take-Home Supper … BBQ Pork Ribs w/baked beans & Potato Salad and corn bread

As always, the Mon Ami team and I thank you for your friendship and patronage of our busy little shop! It is our privilege to serve you and be a part of this wonderful community!

Wishing you Grace & Plenty,

Greetings and Happy Monday to you all! We’ve just come off a very busy weekend here at Mon Ami! The gang started on Friday catering box lunches for an RV group of 40+ couples who arrived from the Sacramento area and continued through Saturday evening with a dinner of Pacific Northwest coastal cuisine. I’m always so proud of my team when we get to do the final set-up – three eight foot tables laden with gorgeous platters of crab louie, prawns (thank you Taylor for peeling EVERY one of them), steaming pots of our Nearly Famous Clam Chowder with heaping baskets of sourdough bread bowls, and Chef Diane’s triple berry cobbler. Job well done, Team Mon Ami!

We’ve got some wonderful dishes planned for this week’s lunch specials. You just might want to plan to eat here every day this week!

Monday
Savory Seafood Crepes
Soup: Creamy Chicken and Rice

Tuesday White Bean and Sausage Stew w/Homemade Bread
Soup: Gingered Carrot with fresh mint

Wednesday Beef Carbonade over Poppyseed Noodles
Soup: Spanish Tomatillo Bisque with Chicken

Thursday
Swiss Potato Gratin with Ham
Soup: Old-fashioned Vegetable

Friday Chicken Monterey with Roasted Red Potatoes
Soup: Clam Chowder (also available in a sourdough bread bowl)

This Week’s Take-Home Supper
Pistachio Crusted Chicken w/vegetable gratin & Caesar salad

Our favorite farmer from the Willamette Valley, Leo Odegaard, is setting up his produce stand right across the street from us every Monday, Thursday and Saturday. And my-oh-my is it ever lovely to have farm fresh fruit and vegetables to cook with – especially the summer berries! This week’s featured dessert is Triple Berry Cobbler (and if you’re REALLY nice, we’ll warm it up and put a dollop of vanilla ice cream on it!)

Thank you for your wonderful feedback on our new homemade breads. Currently, Chef Diane is baking Whole Wheat, Old Fashioned White, and Rye. We’re on the hunt for a really good sourdough starter and hope to be adding that in the near future. Many of you have asked if you can order a loaf to take home, and the answer is YES – just call a day ahead so we can add to you the list!

I’ll be bringing in lots of gorgeous vintage jewelry for the case this week from an estate I recently purchased. If you’re looking for some bling, guess what — we’ve got it!

As always, thank you for your friendship and continued support of Mon Ami! Hope you have a wonderful week chock of Grace & Plenty!
