This Week's Menu

This week you simply must try our delicious meals including our moist chicken burgers on Italian bread and our light chicken feta and penne pasta. This meal tastes equally good the next day, making it the perfect lunch-box meal or one last summer picnic. If you have never grilled pork loin, give it a try with our grilled pork and corn salsa. So easy, yet so impressive. For lunch, your kids will love our gourmet kiddy pineapple and feta pita pizza, avocado grilled cheese and pinto bean burrito. Get this week's menu...
