   We have the cherries.  This has turned out to be a great year for sour cherries.  The pies are better than ever.  The cherries are smaller (something you notice when picking 85#s in the pouring rain) but definitely more flavorful.  Every year is a surprise.

Tired of eating leftovers?  Maybe you should try

                 "ZEPHTOVERS"


For all Thursdays in April and up until Mother's Day 

   in May, we have our solution for your Friday night

dinner dilemma. (Pizza is not really a great idea.)


For an additional $4, for each main course ordered,

  you can purchase a Zephtover meal-to-go.  

Zephtovers are meals outside the range of our 

  usual fare.  These tasty casseroles and home-style

dishes can be easily reheated to enjoy Zephs'

  quality cooking at home.


The "Zephtover" celebration starts 

      Thursday April 2

           with: 


 MOROCCAN BISTEEYA

   Braised chicken pie seasoned with onions, saffron,

ginger, almonds, cinnamon and herbs in a crisp 

   phyllo pastry individual pie.


Keep checking back for the schedule of Zephtover

  meals.  There will be some sort of Lasagne, 

probably Moussaka, maybe Indian Chicken Biryani, 

  and Pork??? There's something new every week.

         (And if we get really energetic 

  there may be some Zephtovers on Sundays, but no 

                  promises there.)

And now the story:

        It was looking like the year without cherry pie.  All the orchards were predicting a total lost crop due to the harsh winter.  All the customers in the know were calling to find out when the cherry pie production would start.  We were trying to think of other good pies that might divert the cherry pie obsession. Blueberry?  Blueberry-Raspberry?? Strawberry Rhubarb??? (We did pick 35#'s of delicious organic strawberries and the rhubarb in the garden is doing quite well.) Peach???? (They're still predicting a great year for peaches!)

        Unnecessary panic.  We found an orchard that said they had some.   We went quickly at the mere mention of "some". Their idea of some was more than enough.  It just took 3 people 2 hours to pick 100#'s. (With the help of rolling thunder in background.) Pie crisis averted for another year.


     Once-a-Year Sour Cherry Pie Season has begun!



ALSO:

    We had so much fun with our rescue tomatoes we decided to continue with the plant relocation program.

     There are now ground cherry (husk tomato) plants potted and looking for homes.  Come for dinner or just for plants.

      This is "Take Home a Tomato Plant" Week at Zephs'


    Our gardens are planted.  We've saved a few back-up plants for accidents and animal attacks.  We still have plenty to find homes for.  Stop by the restaurant this week and rescue a tomato plant. ( Free to good home.) They are all heirloom plants (red, black, yellow, green, big, small).

You can come for dinner or just stop by for a plant or

   two.  We are always happy to make dinner for you.


FUN FACT:

Sometime this week Zephs' will be starting it's 25th year

  in business.  It's official now, by finishing up our first

quarter of a century, we are definitely:

                "Under Old  Management"
