Hello Everyone…

After the couple of nice days, I thought spring had come, but I drove across the state on Monday, and it was snowing as I returned on Tuesday.  We had thought the log fires were over for this year, but we will definitely have one this week.  That is always nice, although we were hoping to have warmer weather by now.

We enjoyed the Ribs with Blackberry Barbecue Sauce last week, and we will have more this week.  The Mushroom Stroganoff was a nice change.  It is a vegetarian version of the Russian classic.  Darlene is working on a different version of the Stuffed Pork Chops, and we have been happy with the success of the Barbecued Shrimp Kebabs.  New this week are the Fish Tacos in the style of Baja California.  Customers have enjoyed these in other years, and Darlene is serving them this time with red beans and rice and sliced tomato and avocado.  This is a very different sort of meal from what we usually serve, but I wonder if they might make a pleasant change for customers who come often.

The Spring Pea Soup is much different from Split Pea Soup which we have on occasion.  The Spring Pea Soup is very light with a fresh and sweet taste of springtime.  Salads are always good at The Coventry Inn with very fresh greens and vegetables, all carefully washed and served with a choice of homemade dressings.

We have changed both desserts this week, offering one of Darlene’s Rich Chocolate Cakes with chocolate icing, served if you like, with small batch vanilla ice cream.  We are also serving one of our old favourites which has been off the menu for a couple of months, our Cuban Flan.  The recipe was given to us by the older sister of one of my wife’s students many years ago, and it has always been a popular dessert at The Coventry Inn.  I haven’t had it myself for a few months, and I look forward to enjoying it again on Friday.

Zoe has been doing a good job behind the bar, always pleasant and smiling.  She is very interested in mixology, and she has her own style of drinks, but she can also mix anything customers may request as long as we have ingredients.  She fits in well with The Coventry Inn’s style, and I am sure she is a good addition to the staff.

It has been a few weeks since we had our annual health inspection by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.  Once again, we got a perfect score which is our reward to keeping our kitchen and our restaurant clean and sanitary.  It is quite a few years since we have had anything but a perfect score, and we consider this something of which to be proud.

The whole staff has been hard at work again this week to provide you with the chance for a pleasant night out with a date, or with your spouse, family or friends.  Everyone is welcome at The Coventry Inn.  Come when you have a celebration or whenever you want a quiet meal in very pleasant surroundings.

Your friend,
Charles A. Runyan
