Farm to Table Dinner – The Menu

Farm to Table Dinner SettingThe Farm to Table dinner is Sunday evening. Local rabbit from Hallelujah Farms, pig on a spit by Johnston’s Meat Market, goat prepared by Rancho Grande and Moroccan lamb soup along with the local green salad. Then there is Seminole squash and also a sweet potato casserole. There will be another vegetable too. Need to find something for color coordination and locally grown. That is not always easy this time of year.

Saturday a friend and I went persimmon picking for Tupelo’s to make us that yummy persimmon bread. Kim will also do pumpkin and pecan pies all with local products. The appetizer table will have some Gulf shrimp from Sandy and Solomon Seafood Market.

The music will be by Caleb Vaughn. Arrive at five if you’d like to take the hayride around before the dinner. There will be a bonfire going in the background just for the special ambiance.

Corrections and Updates

I really need proof readers. It seems that no matter how much I read through the posts, there are always goofs that get past me. I know what I want it to say but I don’t really read what it does say.

Anyway, the Halloween Haunting in Monticello is the Friday before Halloween but the date is actually Friday, October 25 and not the “26” as I put in the in the section about things going on in Monticello.

Then there is that strange sentence in the paragraph about the wool. You do know that I really put these in there to see how close you are reading – oh yeah – and thanks to those that do let me know. It is nice to know that folks are actually reading the blogs.

Than I forgot to add the information about the Harvest Moon Wild Game Dinner this coming Friday night. Poster is below and tells you where and how to buy your tickets. Again, folks cannot say “There is nothing to do.” in Jefferson County.

Also, remember that auction I talked about being here for the first time? I went by after picking persimmons last Saturday. The place was packed with buyers. It sure seems like this will be happening again.
