Specials for the weekend of September 5 and 6
Some beautiful Alaskan King Salmon was made available to us this weekend, and there was no way I could pass that up. I love wild salmon from cold, clean waters. The fish is super-fresh, rich, and tasty. Perfect on the grill.
I couldn’t let the fish take all the spotlight this weekend though. I have delicious Kansas Angus filet mignon finished with Danish blue cheese and wild mushroom mashed potatoes.
It sounds like the weather might actually cool down this weekend. A dinner or just drinks on our patio is the perfect way to celebrate the change in seasons!
