It is harvest time in Eastern Oregon. We have been enjoying fresh local vegetables for a time now, but with the change in the weather we will soon see more pumpkins and squash.
On the menu this week starting tomorrow, since we have beautiful fresh basil and tomatoes is the classic Caprice Salad (tomato, fresh Mozzarella and fresh homegrown basil with olives oil and Balsamic vinegar.) This is a popular salad in Italy and is delicious when made with sweet ripe tomatoes. We are serving an appetizer salad for just $6.95. This is one of my favorite salads, and a great way to enjoy the wonderful flavors of fresh basil and tomatoes.
Also fresh this week is the Blue Plate Special, featuring some beautiful Oregon Sole stuffed with Bay Shrimp also from the Oregon Coast and a coleslaw made with local cabbage.
For music this week on Tuesday we have J D Kindle from Pendleton playing in the bar. Kindle has played many times at Ten Depot, both solo and with his band, James Dean Kindle and the Eastern Oregon Playboys. He has enjoyed tremendous success playing venues from dive bars to coffee shops to rodeo arenas to medium security prisons. The band was was also featured on Oregon Public Broadcasting's Oregon Art Beat.
Playing Thursday September 21 is Good Times Bad Times with Ashley O'Toole, Roger Barnes, Luke McKern and Any Steele, all amazingly good musicians. Their music is a tribute to classic rock and roll, playing favorites from the 60's and 70's. Both nights the music starts at 8:00.
