December … this whirlwind month brings about many complex feelings for me. Despite my initial reluctance to the weather change, I actually feel very welcoming towards the colder temperatures ahead. I’m also looking forward to the challenges of making food to order again, which is the subject of this Food Note.
Each month, I will have rotating Soups of the Month, along with other homemade food stuff. Everything will be made to order in small batches just for you!
December Menu (12/4 - 12/18):
➺ ginger lentil soup w/ coconut milk
a healing soup of sorts, perfect for comforting us into winter ~ this soup option is vegan
⚘ brothy chicken-lime soup
a recent staple of mine ~ just a touch of lime, balanced by warm spices … I normally make this with tomatoes, but for this month I’m going for a homemade chicken broth base
❁ creamy mushroom spinach soup w/ miso
an interpretation on cream of mushroom balanced with miso umami & a hint of vinegar ~ I’m excited about this one.
❧ chocolate chip cookies w/ brown butter & praline
a featured recipe from my first Food Notes
✿ cardamom & cinnamon rolls w/ cream cheese icing
a recipe I’ve been working on for awhile ~ classic fluffy & warm cinnamon rolls with a touch of Chai flavor from the cardamom
+ Matt has created a special thin candle object that you can add-on to any order!
While I wish I had the capability to ship to all my friends, these menu items are only available for Richmond orders. Information on pricing and how to order can be found on my website. I will be accepting orders for this month through December 18th. While I do have the above set menu, I am also open to special orders if you’ve got a specific craving, an upcoming roomie dinner that you’d like me to cook for, or need a treat for a birthday (or a midweek pick-me-up or for no reason at all).
Because all of the food will be made to order, I’m happy to work with you if you have dietary restrictions. Additionally, if you are unable to afford soup, but would like to order, let me know and I’ll feed you - no questions asked.
Looking forward to cooking for you,
