Howdy loyal and not so loyal reader, I need your help in the form of input. I am organizing and cooking for a one-night only restaurant serving tapas style food in a good friend’s awesome local bookstore. I would really love honest and blunt input on the menu or pictures or you in your underwear. Either one will work. Please note the prices are tentative and in US dollars

This little salad d’jour was for Missussteveishungry, who is with child as they used to say. So, she gets plenty of fresh veggies, calcium and protein, all of which are accounted for in the grilled ribeye and onions on a salad of romaine, spinach, provolone cheese, cucumbers, tomatoes, mushrooms with a basil balsamic vinaigrette.
