Well, another one bites the dust. Thought this printer lasted longer than others, I finally bit the proverbial bullet and trekked to Staples to buy a new one. The old one was still printing but something was happening to the alignment, so that when you printed multiple menus, the margins would creep over and by the end of the print job the first few words on each line were cut off. Rockstar's solution to this problem was to print one menu at a time. But as I say, "Ain't nobody got time for that!" The new and improved printer is set up and ready to go! It amazes me how inexpensive printers are given the work they perform. I realize it's the "Razor Blade" theory. Buy the razor, but the refill blades are super expensive. The ink for this new printer is nearly $100 for the set! Yikes - that's a lot of soup.
I really love the spring and summer months for ingredients. On today's menu are Local English Peas and Local Peaches, which are just coming in. Definitely try the English Pea and Couscous Salad with mint and Chives. It's sort of "Slap yo' mama good!" We also have Peach Caprese, which is one of my favorites. It won't last so the early bird gets the peach!
As a reminder, we're closing at 4pm on Saturday and will reopen for breakfast on Tuesday morning. This is a great chance for my staff to take a little break. They work hard and they deserve it. Come see us today and have a great one.
