Produce: Full Success

Last week I hosted a closing reception for produce: photographs by Christin Boggs at Great Falls Library. There was a great turnout, considering it occurred at a time when many are away on vacation. It was so great to catch up with longtime friends and to meet new people. Thank you to everyone who came out!

The reception included some local food dishes. Hollin Farms of Delaplane, Virginia, offered delicious peaches, at a discounted price. Potomac Vegetable Farms of Vienna, Virginia, donated a quart of mouth watering 'Juliet' grape tomatoes. I also prepared several dishes, including Baba Ganoush, Chocolate Beet Cake (substituting margarine with applesauce and all-purpose flour with rice flour), and Barbara Kingsolver's Summer Potato Salad, using vegetables grown either in Rochester, New York or the Washington D.C. area. My mom also made a fabulous spinach quiche, using a recipe from The 10 Things You Need to Eat. Compostable tableware came from Sustainable Party, at a discounted price.
