Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.


It went great, but the next day, I felt like I had been hit by a bus.

I was very busy. I literally did not sit down from 8am to 3:30pm. Since I hadn't been able to prep the night before, everything had to be made on the spot. I did cook the chicken breasts, but that was it. For the morning bunch, I made Cinnamon Chip Scones and Sausage Biscuits, both were a big hit, especially the scones.
For the lunch group, I made my Jalapeno Chicken Salad and Waldorf Chicken Salad and served them inside mini croissants. I served them with a choice of side salad, Pineapple Coleslaw and Fiesta Bean Salad. I also had Ham Salad, but that only went over with a couple people. The food was very well received, but boy was it hard work. I won't be open again until September 22, when they are having their annual Hoe Down Day.
I have come up with a good menu, all things that can be made ahead in the week and kept warm.
Here is the menu I have planned:

Biscuits and Oink-Oink Gravy
Ham and Cowpoke Potatoes (hash brown casserole)
Cinnamon Rolls
Apple Fritters
(I am going to pre-order the cinnamon rolls and the fritters from a local bakery that is located in a gas station, of all places, but they are the about 9 x 6 inches, gigantic, and they cost $1.50 each)

ChicN and Dumplings with Cheesy Scallion Biscuits
Cowboy Beans or Cowgirl Chili with Green Chili Cornbread
Cluck-Cluck Chicken Chili with Chips
Pulled-Porky Sandwiches with Slaw

Right To Your Butt Brownies
Left For Your Hips Apple Pie Bars

Apple Pie Float (apple juice, ginger ale and vanilla ice cream)
Root Beer Float
