Farm Fresh

What’s for Dinner?

A week with not one, but two holidays! I use the term “holiday” a bit loosely, but sure makes dinnertime more amusing, and more likely to include yummy sweet treats! My table is teetering with Hood River Organic winter bounty, perfect to healthfully round out the menus amidst all of this decadent dessert. The freshly foraged mushrooms are still coming – they’ll star in a red, rich and luscious Valentine’s Day pasta sauce. And for the 14-year-old-boy birthday celebration, the least I can do is add a giant kale salad alongside his vote for the best-burger-in-town. As for the rest, take a look, join in where your palate is tempted, and celebrate all that our amazing Northwest winter offers us.
