Remember the other week when I talked about going in to Squirrel Mode? Well, I am definitely there! I have been opening the shop at 6:30 a.m. all week and offered free coffee to all Williams Bay teachers and staff and I have been baking up a storm. In my mind, a coffee shop should, just behind fresh, hot, delicious coffee, smell like Grandma’s kitchen – with something tasty in the oven. Here is what this squirrel has made so far this week: a Sage Sausage Quiche, Blueberry-Lemon Muffins, a Lemon-Poppyseed Bread, Apple-Cinnamon Muffins, a Broccoli Swiss Quiche, Apricot Scones, Mocha Syrup, Vanilla Syrup, an Angel Food Cake (12 egg whites!), and a Flourless Chocolate Cake. Tomorrow I will make a Canadian Bacon Quiche and more Chai and Caramel Syrup.
While I have been the busy squirrel in the kitchen, I have been unexpectedly hit with a computer and today a printer crash. This got me to thinking about the whole busy squirrel thing… you know, it’s kinda sad because a whole bunch of these squirrels are so busy and single-mindedly chasing nuts, sometimes they forget to look both ways when crossing the road… So, I guess the moral of the story is, let your energy flow, but don’t be so obsessed and focused on the nut, that you lose sight of other things that might be just around the corner and hurtling directly at you.
There will be no Open Mic on Thursday night this week! Instead, we will be trying something new on Friday evenings – still live music with talented performers and delicious dinners, only we are going to start a new series I am calling Collage. At Collage, we will have a featured performer, this week the lovely Nicole Fuller, and will also allow other musicians or poets, or other acts to join in or perform solo. The music will include popular songs, folk songs, blues and really anything goes. A creative collage! We want to build this creative community! Our dinner this Friday evening will be Salmon Cakes – made with fresh, red Salmon, Potatoes with butter and parsley, and sautéed Green Bean Almondine. $12 We will also have a gluten-free vegetarian option: Pasta Primavera! This dish will be available every Friday and Saturday night and we plan to offer a GF, vegetarian meal every weekend.
Saturday evening the talented Joy Smith will take the stage and we will serve a traditional dinner of Roast Beef, Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans. $14 Salad and warm bread will be available as well. Please call ahead for reservations as you know our space is “cozy” and we don’t like to turn anyone away! Door open at 6:30 and dinner is served around 7:15 p.m.
Thank you for supporting Bragii and being a part of our creative community!
