Menu for the Week of May 26, 2014 – Eating Some Greens (with meat of course) Before AF&WF This Weekend!


Well it is a new week (yesterday didn’t count) and thank goodness, because after all the meaty goodness we had over the holiday weekend, we are all ready for something simple and light.  We won’t go into details about the excessive amounts of delicious grilled sausages, burgers, and pates that we relished over the 3 day weekend here at The Spotted Trotter, but I can tell you we are already planning for the July 4th weekend! 

This week it is going to be about putting a nice garlic rosemary crusted strip steak on the grill and slicing it thin for a mouth-watering salad made from greens we picked up at the market this weekend.  Add some locally grown mushrooms from our friend Jonathan that we carry at the shop from Sparta Imperial Mushrooms ( and we couldn’t be happier!!  OH YEAH!  Maybe tomorrow it will be a salad made with one of our whole smoked creole chickens or bone-in center cut pork chops marinated in Bluegrass Bourbon Barrel Soy Sauce that we carry.

All we know is that we absolutely have to eat some balanced meals these next several days, as the gluttony of The Atlanta Food & Wine Festival descends upon us starting this Thursday.  We will be involved in a number of events, first we will be a part of the DELTA tent on Saturday, we will also be participating in an amazing sensory capturing dinner Friday night and we’ll be involved in two amazing classes on fabulous flavors in “Compelling Sensory Identities” with Russell Jones and the crew from the Condiment Junkies visiting straight from the UK on Saturday and Sunday.  If we don’t see you there, we can’t wait to tell you all about it in next week’s post!

Have a great week, and we will see you soon!

Stay Hungry, Atlanta!
