And we're back! A Crafty new menu for Monday, 11/12

Welcome back to autumn. I've missed you!
It's been an exciting season for all of us, with lots of events, challenging weather, suspenseful elections, and plenty more going on. I hope you are all weathering the latest storm comfortably!
I'm writing to you from my family's home in Connecticut, where it is snowing hard. The internet was down all day, but it's finally back up. Huzzah!
I will be back in Boston in time to cook this delicious menu for you. Please place orders through Saturday night. I will deliver to your home or workplace on Monday afternoon, November 12. If you are a teacher or otherwise not planning to be where you usually are on Veterans' Day, let me know and we'll make alternate arrangements.
Thanks so much, and I look forward to cooking for you soon!
Much love,
Chef Mary

Curried Carrot Almond Soup. Bring some warm sunshine into this snowy, slushy weekend! $9
Autumn Bento featuring black rice onigiri, local veggie kinpira, and delicious farmers market treats! $12

Sweet Potatoes with caramelized onions and homemade dried local apples. (Contains a very small amount of honey.) Served with quinoa and veg du jour, and topped with cashews. $12
Raw sprouted sunflower seed hummus with crunchy veggies to dip.  Yum! $10
Pumpkin muffins with chocolate chips! One of Earnest's favorites. (Chocolate may be omitted on request.) $10 half dozen, $18 dozen

Mint Chocolate Frogs! Harry Potter fans will especially appreciate these peppermint-filled chocolate critters. $10

Please inform me (or remind me) before ordering if you have any allergies or sensitivities. All menu items are free of soy, peanut, wheat, gluten, meat, egg, and dairy ingredients.
The following is not a comprehensive ingredients list. It's simply a summary that I hope will help the most sensitive among us order.
SOUP: Contains almonds, and some cooked garlic and onion. Will be flavorful, but not super spicy.
BENTO: Contains sesame, nuts, beans, and garlic.
SWEET POTATOES: Contains cashews, which can be omitted or switched to pumpkin seeds on request. Contains cooked onions.
HUMMUS: Contains sesame and sunflower seeds. No beans or tree nuts. Contains raw garlic.
MUFFINS: Chocolate may be omitted on request.
FROGS: Contain chocolate and coconut.
Raw: Choose hummus.
Grain-free: Choose soup, hummus, and frogs.
Low sugar: All the savories are good choices. Muffins are not too sweet. Frogs are dark chocolate; use personal judgment.
ACD: As above, all the savories are good choices, depending on tolerance to vinegar. Bento fillings may contain a little rice vinegar, ACV, and coconut aminos (made from naturally fermented coconut sap, this sauce tastes similar to soy sauce, but is 100% GF and soy free too! Sugar free; generally considered safe for ACD.) Hummus contains nutritional yeast (not related to candida) and a tiny bit of raw apple cider vinegar. The dried apples on the sweet potatoes add only a little sweetness, but I can leave them off if you don't tolerate dried fruit. There is only a trace of honey, to keep them from oxidizing while dehydrating.

Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!

Much love,
Chef Mary
