(these are not set in stone)
Parties of 20 or more may choose up to two entrees.

fresh homemade crusty artisan bread
and side salad or soup (choose one please)
1. salad greens and fresh veggies tossed
with Dijon vinaigrette
2. salad greens with red onion, blue cheese,
pear, walnuts and balsamic vinaigrette
1. chicken tortilla soup (slightly spicy)
2. roasted tomato basil soup
Note: I offer an open menu so the vegetables and starches can be alternated/switched. If there is a dish you would like to try that I don’t have listed, let me know and I will do my best to prepare it.
Chicken Lasagna. Layers of lasagna noodles, slow cooked chicken, green pepper, garlic, cheese and cream sauce. Served with a side salad or soup and fresh bread. This is my most popular chicken dish. It's simple, but everyone seems to love it. $12 per person
Sherry marinated chicken breast. Chicken breasts marinated then seared on the grill and finished in the oven. Seasonal vegetables are served on the side with buttered parsley potatoes. $14 per person
Chicken with 40 cloves of garlic served with rice pilaf, seasonal vegetables and side salad or soup with fresh bread - incredibly tender chicken slow cooked with garlic cloves and white wine. This is not an over powering dish. $14 per person
Chicken Piccata over a bed of pasta and broccoli, side salad or soup and homemade artisan bread - chicken breast is cut thin then lightly breaded, sautéed, and braised in a lemon and caper sauce. $15
Turkey or Beef Osso Bucco with creamy polenta served with side salad or soup and fresh bread - tender turkey slow simmered with carrot and onion in a tomato base, then served over creamy polenta. The ultimate comfort food. $15 per person
Mustard seared roast Pork Loin with garlic mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables, side salad or soup and fresh bread - the loin is smothered in a mustard sauce, seared on the grill and finished in the oven. $14 per person
Dolmades with orzo and seasonal vegetables with side salad or soup and fresh bread - lamb and pork stuffed grape leaves, which are slow cooked and served with Greek pasta granules (orzo) and seasonal vegetables. $15 per person

Sherry marinated Mahi Mahi with fruit salsa, sticky rice, side salad or soup and fresh bread - this hearty white flaky fish is marinated and grilled. Even people that don't prefer fish seem to like this dish. $16 per person

Seafood Imperial served with carrot rice pilaf, seasonal vegetables, side salad or soup and fresh bread. A filet of whatever whitefish I can get for the season (Swai, flounder, cod) topped with a crab cake mixture, then finished in the oven. $19 per person
