Weekend Eats (and Drinks)


Friday night, La Laiterie:

We don’t eat out often, but when we do, this is our favorite place to go. They just get it right – great atmosphere, perfectly fresh, seasonal ingredients, spot-on preparations and pairings. I always walk away inspired.

The farmers’ market is one of the best parts of my week. It’s even better now that Spring is kicking into high gear.

Mike swung through the Union Square Greenmarket during his quick trip to NYC, and brought home a few things to supplement our local goodies:



Bourbon smash

Not Juleps, but just as tasty.

    Where did the lamb come from? It looks absolutely divine.

    Our farmer’s market in Baltimore opened this weekend. It was mostly plants, but I was able to pick up asparagus, pea vines, and mustard greens.

    Marie – Aw, you make me feel bad! 😦

    Adina – We don’t have a local source for lamb yet, so this was from Whole Foods. I am so looking forward to mustard greens – one of my favorite things!

    elizabeth – It truly is a relief 🙂

    Clay – Thanks!

    hikalu – I think fiddleheads are found in some parts of the States but not others. I don’t remember seeing them where I grew up, but they’re definitely around here in New England!
