Farm Kitchen in Poulsbo, WA

So, I will admit that May and now June have been very crummy weather-wise.  May is the hardest month for me in the Northwest.  Being a California native, I am used to superb spring weather in May.  Here in the Puget Sound Area, not so much.  I will say though, that when the sun comes out, you notice and you appreciate.  And the sun and blue skies do make for dramatic days living alongside all the trees and water.

This past weekend we had a one-day break in the gray and wet.  Heading over to the Farm Kitchen in Poulsbo had been on the back of my mind.  So, when the blue skies popped out on Saturday morning, we jumped in the car and made the short 20 minute drive to the farm.

The Farm Kitchen is an 18 acre organic farm, that serves as an event and retreat venue.  It also has a commercial kitchen, so the first Saturday of the month, from 8-12, they serve up a farm-style breakfast.  The menu changes monthly, but this past weekend we had asparagus quiche, home-made chicken-apple sausage patties, lemon-currant scones, fruit and pecan sticky-buns.  The kids had fluffy scrambled eggs (hate the typical runny-buffet style, but loved these), potatoes, and sausage.

The best part, after the amazing breakfast, you can explore the farm, and on days like this past Saturday, you could sip your coffee and linger forever in the gardens.

Our breakfast for four was @ $40 with tip.  A great activity for out-of-town guests.  I know we plan to make it back this summer.

Just off the island in downtown Poulsbo is a great little place that can make your life easier. The What’s For Dinner Kitchen is a meal preparation kitchen thats “mission is to strengthen families by enabling them to enjoy dinner together without the stress.” The owner was a former caterer and the quality of the menu selections prove that.

At What’s For Dinner, you have the option to schedule a time and prepare up to twelve meals yourself, or now, even better, I think, you can order online and they will prepare and package the meals for you and you can just swing in and pick them up. And, there is no extra charge for the preparation!

A meal for four runs about $20, depending on how many you buy at once, and my calculations show that once you factor in the time it takes to find a recipe to prepare, shop for it and then put it together, $20 is a great value. One of the best things about their meals are the sauces, they are so full of flavor and so obviously not from a jar. A nice change. So, even meals like enchiladas or lasgana, are not ordinary – they are restaraunt quality. Some of my favorites are their chicken pot pie, enchiladas verde, mahi mahi, and meatloaf.

So, about once a month, I buy about four to six meals and find it is a great substitution for going out to dinner. Now, if they’d just open one on Bainbridge Island, I would be really happy!

What’s For Dinner Kitchen is now closed :( 6/2015. I still want them to open one on Bainbridge!
