Greetings! It is a beautiful day in the Mon Ami neighborhood!

A big “merci” to all of you who made the drive up Hwy. 101 to my Tenmile Estate Sale! We had great crowds both days!

With the start of school, we are adjusting our shop hours a wee bit so that our “pastry princess” and resident chef can see her kidlets off to school – we’ll be opening now at 9 a.m. Monday through Saturday. We’ll also be closing on Sundays beginning this week. Thank you for your understanding!

Don’t forget that THIS WEEKEND is the 2nd Annual City-Wide Garage Sale! woot-woot! You can pick up the Wednesday edition of the Siuslaw News for a list and map of participants. (We’ll also have them at Mon Ami.) Last year, we just did a one-day event, but guess what … there will be sales all weekend, Friday through Sunday! (A special thank you to my co-conspirators in making this event happen … Jenna Bartlett, Dee Osborne, Betty Blake, Lisa Walters-Sedlacek, and Cal Applebee.) Also this weekend is the annual Rods & Rhodies car show in Old Town … so there’s a lot happening. It’s gonna be fun!

Here’s our menu for this week! Hope to see you for lunch!

Tuesday:
Taco Salad … All the fixings on house made tortilla chips and fresh mild salsa
Soup: Cream of Corn

Wednesday:
Bacon, Cheddar, and Potato Wrap
Soup: Fresh Green Pea

Estate Sale Pictures (Click here to view)

We are conducting a whole house liquidation on behalf of William & Dorothy Lachowicz this Friday & Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days. After long and successful careers as fine artists and designers, Mr. and Mrs. Lachowicz retired to a charming beach bungalow next to Ten Mile Creek about 26 years ago. They recently relocated to be closer to their children out of state, and we have been asked to liquidate the contents of their lovely home.

If you love mid-century and danish modern furniture & artwork, this sale is for you! If you love textiles and fabrics, this sale is for you! Mr. and Mrs. Lachowicz were students at the renowned Layton School of Art in Wilwaukie, Wisconson and over the last 60 years designed and created numerous pieces of fine and textile art, sculptures, and furniture in the mid-century genre. This home reflects their talents and is full of many treasures.

It’s “I Need a Hero!” week at Mon Ami

Good morning to you! If you weren’t at the coast this weekend, you missed a spectacular weekend! The weather was perfect for a hike. I’m a bit embarassed to admit that I’ve lived here 18 years and never hiked the Siltcoos Trails, but I loaded Miss Bella in the truck this weekend and decided to tackle an item or two on my Bucket List. A couple of weeks ago we did Sweet Creek. My little rescue pooch LOVES to explore! One of these days, AFTER I finish my cookbook, I’m going to write a book titled “A Dog Can Change Your Life.” Who knew??!!!

This week at Mon Ami, we will be featuring our newest “permanent resident” “The Kaiser” in a variety of flavours. Chef Diane has is baking something new each day for some pretty darn tasty Hero-wiches! Here’s our menu …

Monday:
Meatball Marinara Hero on a parmesan Kaiser roll
Soup: Creamy Chicken Enchilada Soup

Tuesday:
The Hawaiian Ham and Swiss and Grilled Pineapple on an onion Kaiser
Soup: old fashioned split pea

Wednesday:
The Chicken-Bacon-Cheddar on a Bacon Kaiser roll
Soup: Fresh Tomato-Basil

Thursday:
Chili Cheese Dog Hero on a Cheddar Kaiser
Soup: Just-cut-from-the-cob Corn Soup

Friday:

Tuna on a Roll Hero: (now on our new menu) on an original Poppyseed Kaiser roll
Soup: Clam Chowder (As always, our chowder is gluten free.)

This week’s featured dessert: Warm and Fresh Detering Orchard Peach and Strawberry Cobbler featuring a cornmeal biscuit topping

Speaking of Detering Orchard, our good friend and Produce Guru, Leo Odegaard, is now coming over from the valley every Monday, Thursday and Saturday and setting up his produce stand just across the street from Mon Ami at the old Hoberg’s gas station. Corn is now in season, the green beens are crisp, and the fruit from the orchard is sweet & juicy! Leo’s family farm is just a few acres down from the Wobbe farm on Bodenhammer Road, and we love to support him as he continues the family business.

That’s it for now – hope you are enjoying your summer!

Warm wishes for a week filled with Grace & Plenty,

Cindy Wobbe, Proprietress

This Week at Mon Ami!

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 cafĂ©! 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,
Cindy Wobbe
