22 July 2012
It has been a very fun weekend! On Friday night, we had Mexican with John and Cory, and then we went to Canton Lanes to bowl a few games with our friends Jennifer, Abraham and Carmen. It was a lot of fun!
On Saturday, Jeff and I went to the Canton Farmers Market and found sound great produce: lettuce, lady peas, okra, heirloom tomatoes and watermelon. We also picked up a couple of the t-shirts that Grant Design Collaborative designed for the farmers market. Afterward, we had some great pancakes at the Soul Food Market! Saturday turned into a rainy day, so we drove up to Ellijay to stock up on some local grass fed beef and heritage pork from Mountain Valley Farm! It's always great to see Suzy, and we have offered to bring several of our friends along the next time we visit. Last night, we stayed home and played Monopoly with the guys: Cory, John, TJ and Matt. The game lasted about six hours, and my upscale hotels on Boardwalk and Park Place delivered a win for me!
This morning, I made homemade buttermilk pancakes from scratch, and we cooked some sausage from Mountain Valley. It was, by far, the best sausage I have ever tasted! After a late breakfast, our friends Jennifer, Abraham and Erin came over and floated in the pool with us for a while. For tonight's Sunday Supper, I used all of the local produce and cooked a local grass fed pot roast from Mountain Valley. It is so great to know the people who grow and raise your food! Cory and John joined us for pot roast, fried okra, fresh lady peas and tomatoes and basil from the garden at One Britt. It was delicious and extremely satisfying!
Here's to a great weekend, good food and a busy week ahead.
