Spring 2011 new Menu Items!

An abundance of fresh Green Beans (String Beans to us southerners) inspired our new Tarragon Chicken Soup.   Yes, I said GREEN BEANS!  Creamy, rich without the fat, and full of fiber, but you won’t be thinking about the health benefits when you’re rolling this around on your tongue!

Yummy Country Lamb Sandwiches with arugula on buttered French Toast make the BEST picnic!  A zesty 24 hour marinade before we grill our lamb leg and slice it thinly makes it moist and rich, just like lamb should be!

What in the heck is a Tomatillo?

It’s NOT a baby tomato – though it looks like one!  Tomatillos are a berry in the same family as eggplant and potatoes (nightshade) – as are tomatoes.  They are a fruit.  They have a husk, and keep really well.  Longer storage requires removal of the husks first, then in the fridge in a paper bag.  Tomatillos can be eaten raw or cooked, and are the key ingredient in salsa verde.  In the store, look for tight husks, not wrinkly ones.  We use tomatillos in a variety of recipes (not just Mexican!)  Check out our Roasted Pork Loin with Mango Salsa on the menu – that’s one!  www.lulasforlunch.com
