Can you believe it's already 2015 ?
  It seems like just a year or two ago we were all concerned about our computers and what the turn of the century would do.  That was 15 years ago.  Where has all the time gone.

I would really like to start this letter off by saying thank you to all you wonderful lovely folks who have come to see us and made Courtney's what it is today.   I wish that I could remember names as well as I remember faces.  Christopher and the crew are much better on that than I am.  I am so grateful for all your love and support.

Life has been really busy and exciting the last two days.  We made the front page of the Wichita Eagle newspaper.  Michael Pearson has written as absolutely wonderful article on the store. When I went to pick up the newspapers I was so amazed to find us on the front page.  My feet still have not touched the ground yet.  We try really hard to give you all the best experience we can, but it is your continued support that drives us to do the best.  we thank you all for everything that you give to us and wish you all the best in the coming year.

January MENU

 WEEKEND OF Jan. 2 & 3     We will be featuring our Celia's Pasta which is  farfalla pasta with sun dried tomatoes, sauteed mushrooms, roasted garlic, and chicken in a delicious creamy cheese sauce.  

WEEKEND  of Jan. 9 & 10     We will be offering shrimp in a spicy garlic cream sauce over linquini.

WEEKEND  of Jan. 16 & 17    I will be making Italian Sausage Pastry Puffs served on a bed of fresh spinach with an Assiago Cheese Sauce.

WEEKEND  of  Jan. 23 & 24   Come and enjoy our Tuscan Roll-ups.  That is pasta with a filling of sauteed mushrooms, spinach, ham and cheese.  Baked in a Tomato Wine Sauce till bubbly.

WEEKEND of Jan.  30 & 31, Will find a Pork Wellington served with a Mushroom Risotto on the menu.
I find that at the end of each description, I want to add "one of my favorites".  Can't help it but I love my own cooking !!!

As with everything in my life,  everything is open to change. The weather,  availability of what's needed,  flu season,  etc all affects us. 

RESERVATIONS and seating times are more important than ever  since  "the article " hit the scene.   We will continue to do our best to give you  the best experience we can.   I can only cook so fast  and we are in  tiny Toronto,  so plan on sitting back, relax, take time, enjoy your company and the experience .  (If you  prefer  fast food, it is 35 miles east on 54. )

We were lucky to procure the talents of a real bartender.  Chris won't be looking  recipes  up on his phone anymore.  We are not quite ready to play  "stump the bartender ", but Lori is really pretty good.  I am thinking of trying to find space  for a little  club seating  so you can sit and enjoy a drink  while waiting for your seating time if you arrived early.

Again, thank you all so much for supporting and loving us.
 All the best to you,
Courtney & Chris
