This week's Howdy do and What's New at Washington's Green Grocer
Good Morning Everyone!
How was your weekend? Did anyone go to SAVOR? Since Washington's Green Grocer was asked to source the local produce for the event, Zeke was there. We were both supposed to attend, but poor Loki, our going on 15 year old Border Collie was stricken with something called "Old Dog Vestibular Disease". Have you ever heard of this? It's basically wicked vertigo that makes it nearly impossible for them to walk without falling. Their eyes bounce back and forth and their heads tilt. Poor old boy. Anyhow, I stayed home with Loki and had to miss out this year. If you like craft beer and food, you won't want to miss this annual event at the National Building Museum. Tickets sell our fast, but since we'll be sourcing again next year we will be sure to let you know as soon as they go on sale!! Here's Zeke and Adam Dulye , the executive chef for the event and chef/owner of the Monk's Kettle and The Abbot's Cellar in San Francisco. Oh, the PS is that Loki is about 75% better. It takes awhile to recover when your world is turned upside down!
Here's what's new this week!
It's already squash blossom time!! We're offering organic squash blossoms (10 in a portion) from Sunnyridge Farm in PA. Look for recipe suggestions on our Pinterest Page! If you haven't visited us on Pinterest, we think you're going to love all of our boards!! If you're a regular visitor, check out our newest boards; "Eat Outside", "Our Farmer and Friends", and "Coconut in All it's Forms".
Walla, walla, walla, walla. So fun to say and delicious to eat!! We've got local, organic Walla Walla onions from Landisdale Organic Farm in Pa. Walla Walla's not from Washington. I just can't say Walla Wall enough.
Returning this week; the seasonal sweetheart from the allium world; garlic scapes! These guys are locally and organically grown and come from Windy Knolls Farm in Pennsylvania.
A couple more terrific offerings from Sweet Stem Farm: Stir Fry Beef - sliced super thin, this beef takes minutes to prepare. Of course it's grand in a stir-fry, but we season it up, saute it and keep it in the fridge on hand to toss with some chopped romaine, roasted red pepper, kalamata olives and feta. Lunch in a flash. Also, Pork Pullers - Boneless pork shoulder roasts. Pop 'em in the crock pot with about half cup of water and cook on low for 7hours. Shred, toss with your favorite barbecue sauce and you've got fantastic pulled pork for sammies, pizza, quesadillas and whatever else you can come up with!
