This weekend, my little supper club group travels down to Austin to visit Greer! Since her Dallas departure last fall, Meredith, Amy and myself have been conspiring a Hill-Country weekend getaway to visit and this weekend could not be more perfect. Unnaturally warm again, we are going to spend the last weekend of February in 70-degree weather, doing yoga in the park, visiting the Farmers Market, sipping tasty libations on a patio looking over the lake, and most importantly, cooking our little hearts out!
Many ideas floated around but we finally chose a theme: Fresh and Fabulous (hence the doctored photo above). We are going to Bess Bistro on Friday night to plan out our strategy but the initial concept will go a little something like this.
- Each of us will choose 5 ingredients to get from the Farmers Market on Saturday.
- Those 5 ingredients will be combined with the others for 20 total.
- We will make 3 meals with those 20 ingredients, focusing on the fresh produce and local flavor. A literal farm-to-table weekend of meals!
- Common items such as garlic, herbs and spices are not considered in our 5 ingredients.
