And when I say demo…I don’t mean demolition. Though…the “after” scene would have any reasonable person thinking we completely demolished a farm’s worth of fresh veggies. I submit for evidence…Exhibit A:
So, in case you have no clue what I’m talking about Thrifty DC Cook, Mango and Tomato, Florida Girl In DC and I were all invited to demo recipes that included farm-fresh ingredient last Saturday at the 14th and Ust farmers market. I made Veggie No-Bake “Lasagna” and brought Goat Cheese Cheesecake…both included ingredients you could find right there at the market.
It was so much fun! I got a little nervous right before it was my turn…but all was well. I forget how much people love eating food…free food. And talking about food. And learning about food. And it helped that I was holding Ike quite a bit and everyone loves a tiny puppy.
People lined up for samples and to hear how to make the dishes…quite a success.
If we ever get to do this again, I hope you can make it out. It was a lot of fun…even with the swampishness and the heat. Here’s the run down on what we made with links to the recipes:
- Mango and Tomato made a Raw Beet and Arugula Salad with Goat Cheese.
- I brought a Goat Cheese Cheesecake and Veggie No-Bake Lasagna.
- Florida Girl in DC created a Farmers Market Summer Confetti Salad.
- Thrifty DC Cook did a delicious Thai Beef Salad.
Damn, I can’t believe I missed this. It looks awesome! Beautiful recipes!
Yeah beeznatch! Next time…you come and we’ll give you free food for days!
Aeren wants to know what’s your fav restaurant in DC?
Hmmm. It’s always changing! And depends on what you want! Oyamel…Bourbon Steak DC…Pasta Mia…Why’s he askin’ :)
Ahh. This makes me so nostalgic for DC livin’. Also, making that lasagna ASAP. Yes, already said that on Twitter, but I really can’t reiterate that enough.
