Happy Independents Day!

No, I didn't spell it wrong. This week local thinkers around the Umpqua Valley are celebrating
our independent, locally-owned businesses. We kicked off "Independents Week" on July 1 with a gourmet dinner at the Mark 5 restaurant in Roseburg. Sean Vincent and his crew prepared a fabulous meal. Here's the menu:

Local Wine Tasting
Braised Lamb
Tomato-Basil Bruschetta
Lighthouse Center Bakery bread and basil and tomatoes from Big Lick Farm
Summer Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette
Vegetarian Lasagne with Zucchini and Broccoli
Norm Lehne Gardens
Herbed Heirloom Potatoes & Vegetables
Big Lick Farm, The Kitchen Garden and Norm Lehne Gardens
Chocolate & Raspberry Mousse
The Berry Patch

Everything was delicious. The dressing on the salad was superb and the combination of chocolate and raspberries for dessert finished off the meal perfectly.
