2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 40,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 15 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Did you say dinner at the Crooked Tree Cafe?

There has been much discussion since we opened the doors about when we might begin to serve dinner. Well, wait no more, dinner is around the corner. That’s right, the Crooked Tree Cafe will begin serving dinner on Friday and Saturday nights beginning August 21 and August 22. The dinner menu is going to include some new great favorites that we have actually been trying out in smaller portions for lunch.

Perhaps you saw last week’s specials which included Pesto Roasted Salmon and Pan Seared Tenderloin Medallions?

Our hours for dinner will be from 5 PM to 9 PM on Friday and Saturday evenings. Our current breakfast and lunch hours will not change.

Remembering Those Who Paid the Ultimate Sacrifice on Memorial Day

Today, we served lunch to many and sent others home with BBQ to go for family outings, but through it all we never forgot what today means to so many. Memorial Day is the day we pay tribute to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. At the Crooked Tree Cafe, we are grateful for these brave men and women who fought for our country and lost their lives in the process. We also remember their families on this special day, and hope they know how appreciative we are for the sacrifice their loved ones gave us. Whether your flew a flag, attended a parade or visited a veterans cemetery, we hope you all stopped to take a moment and say thank you! And from all of us at The Crooked Tree … thank you!

Mother’s Day 2015!

vector mother's day

Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate Mom. It is a day to shower her with hugs, homemade cards, thoughtful gifts and of course a fabulous brunch. In honor of this very special day, Chef Jeff is serving up an incredible Mother’s Day brunch this Sunday.
How about a scrumptious Cinnamon Roll Bread Pudding for the mom who loves pastries. Or maybe seafood is more her style. Treat her to Gulf Crab stuffed biscuits. The freshly baked biscuits are covered with Crooked Tree seasoned creamy crab meat. Yes, we are hungry just typing it up too! Another seafood special for Mom’s day is Shrimp and Grits. This tasty meal consists of pan seared shrimp and julienne vegetables served over creamy grits with a garlic and herb pan sauce. Yes please, we’ll take two. And Mother’s Day brunch is definitely not complete without a sweet dish, how about Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast? Chef Jeff will prepare this incredible dish with Challah French toast, strawberry cheesecake and fresh strawberry compote. So now that we have your mouth watering, we hope you know where to take Mom this Sunday for brunch … the Crooked Tree Cafe, that’s where!
And Happy Mother’s Day to all our Moms!
