How many of us have our food suppliers throw us a party. With craft beers, burgers, hot dogs, chicken wings, and bratwurst. All served using The Breadery’s rolls. And, give us pumpkins to carve while socializing.
Friends and Farms did that Monday night. With grilling. Corn hole. Pumpkin carving. A chance to meet new people who love regional foods. A chance to see what is behind that warehouse door. And, to break bread with the owners. Phil and Tim.
Phil manned the grill. Tim made sure everything else was running smoothly.
How many of you can say you know the owners of your food sources? You know, those Royal Ahold people who run Giant Food.
We met lots of friendly Howard Countians. Had a good time. Took a salad as the pot luck side dish. Using my arugula. Larriland beets. Firefly farms chevre.
It’s times like these that make me happy I live here. Where there are committed people who provide us with awesome baskets of food every week.
Like last week’s basket.
That individual basket. Perfect for an active retired couple. Acorn squash. Carrots. Kale. Sweet potatoes. Garlic. Bay leaves. Jalapenos. Asian pears.
Yogurt and eggs this week for us. With an extra request. Those amazing ravioli, from La Pasta.
Proteins were pork butt and chicken wings. Want a picture of a perfect dinner?
Chicken legs. Ravioli. My garlic scape pesto. Fresh. Tasty. Easy.
