Happy end of the week, everyone!

Oh my goodness, the calendar is chock full of important dates! Yesterday was the Ides of March. You may remember that this is the day on which Julius Caesar was assassinated. In Shakespeare's play, a seer warned Caesar to "Beware the Ides of March." But what on Earth is an ides? It's just a day in the ancient Roman calendar close to the middle of the month. Some months it falls on the 15th, and others it's the 13th. In the case of the Ides of March, it was a festival dedicated to the god Mars, on the 15th day of the month named for him. Now you know!

The day before, I almost missed a really important holiday: Pi Day! How could I miss Pi Day? The date 3/14 bears a close resemblance to the first three digits of pi, 3.14 In honor of Pi Day, this menu will feature both Tamale Pie and the amazing gluten free, vegan Pecan Pie that bowled everyone over last time!

Finally, the first day of spring is upon us! In spring, everything seems to wake up. The first few springy ingredients are becoming available. We can begin to turn to more salads and lighter, refreshing foods. Though we never really had a whole lot of winter, I think many of us are still ready for spring!

I hope you all enjoy this beautiful menu as much as I plan to!

Please order by midnight, Sunday night for delivery on Tuesday, 3/20. (It's okay to order later than that, of course, but sometimes the more popular items start to sell out!)

Thank you so much!

Much love,
Chef Mary


Chunky Buckwheat Vegetable Soup. Yum! $8


Colcannon: One last St. Patrick's Day dish that we couldn't fit into last week's menu! Mashed potatoes are even more delicious when mixed with fresh greens and scallions. Served with roasted butternut squash and topped with toasty squash seeds! $11

Tamale Pie! Delicious red bean chili, with corn bread baked on top. $11

A brand new take on our favorite Carrot Nori Rolls, with a Caesar salad flare! A departure from the usual amazing carrot ginger wraps, and different from previous Caesar wraps too. They'll be bite sized and easy to eat like the usual carrot rolls, but with a more Caesary flavor profile and a side of my famous raw vegan cashew Caesar dressing for dipping. They are going to be AMAZING and I can hardly wait! $11

Kabocha Pumpkin Lasagna with creamy Roasted Red Pepper Sauce and Greens du Jour. Made with gluten free brown rice pasta, of course! $12


Everyone's favorite: Banana Buckwheat Chocolate Chip Muffins $10 half dozen, $18 dozen

Pecan Pie! Yum! With a dollop of Cashew Creme on the side. $8


As always, everything is delicious, vegan, made from real ingredients, and good for you. I do not use soy, peanut, wheat, or any gluten ingredients. I do use certified organic and/or local nuts, seeds, whole grains, fruits, and veggies. If you are allergic or sensitive to anything, please let me know!

I always appreciate it when you bring back the reusable containers and jars. It helps reduce our consumption of plastic and glass (and it helps keep prices reasonable!)

Have a beautiful day!
