Tonight was a real treat! We enjoyed dinner with three different organic farmers and their families– and let me tell you, there was no shortage of conversation this evening! We all had so much to talk about. Plus, I think the farmers wanted to know just as much about us bloggers as we wanted to know about them!
Dinner was held at the bed and breakfast where we are staying, which made crawling into bed (after a couple of glasses of wine and a full belly) very convenient!
How gorgeous is this table?!
Everything about our dining experience was wonderful tonight. I sort of felt like I eating a fancy meal out at restaurant instead of at someone’s house!
The evening started with a cocktail hour, complete with wine, beer, and appetizers. While chatting away with farmers and bloggers, I enjoyed a piece of Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella Bruschetta.
And, like, a million Spinach and Feta-Stuffed Mushrooms. Mmm!
I also enjoyed two glasses of white wine over the course of the evening.
After a bit of mingling, it was time to sit down for dinner. We had a group of 14 people, including farmers, their families, Stonyfield folks, and bloggers.
The meal started with a cold Watermelon-Lobster Soup, which was a really unique combination. It was light, smooth, slightly sweet, very refreshing, and perfect for summer.
The entree of the evening was a Beef Kabob served with grilled vegetables, couscous, and tzatziki sauce (made with Stonyfield yogurt).
I really loved this dish. It had so many wonderful flavors and textures! Very satisfying.
Dessert was also pretty amazing: Panna Cotta with Fresh Strawberries. Holy yum!! I practically licked my plate clean– you know me and desserts! (Dessert was also made with Stonyfield yogurt.)
I have another early morning tomorrow: cow milking!
