We don’t often talk about our meals here at the Rufus Guide. Yes, we talk all the time about food and on special occasions we might mention what we ate as a first course and for dessert. But we normally don’t run down a full menu from start to finish.
When Katherine posted the menu above on Facebook last week, it got us to thinking: “Why don’t we do that more often?” No, not print out a menu on good paper and hang it with a ribbon on the back porch only to have it blow into the yard forcing her to retrieve it, brush off the leaf bits and slap some packing tape on the top to secure it to the patio door from the inside. That bit wasn’t on Facebook.
Starting this week, we’ll be posting menus each Sunday night. Some will be meals we’ve had, some will be created from dishes from our archives that weren’t paired together at the time, but should have been. And some will feature new dishes with old favorites. While, we’ll try to keep them seasonal, we’re starting with a meal we made for our eighth wedding anniversary in April 2011. Strawberries are still in season in California, where we got married after all. We hope you like the feature and if you have suggestions on the types of menus you’d like to see, please tell us. Just keep in mind, we only have so much fancy paper left.
