November 2012 Review

And we’re back with the monthly reviews on Fifth Floor Kitchen!  What photos did I capture on my iPhone this past month?

Interested in past months?  Check them out: May June July August

November Review 1

This was taken on our last day of our honeymoon in Phuket, Thailand.  Check out our posts about it here.

November Review 2

First week back from our honeymoon and we were excited for food from the farmer’s market!  We got: arugula, turnips, a pie pumpkin, apples, pears, sweet potatoes, cheese & eggs from the Penn Quarter Farmer’s Market.

Don’t know what to eat for breakfast?  Check out this post on making Fall Granola– perfect to mix with yogurt or milk!

November Review 4

Sam and I visited our friend Beth in Baltimore.  We loved this place: Abbey Burger Bistro, make your own burger (and it’s got some good beers as well).

November Review 6

While in Baltimore we stopped by the Baltimore Farmer’s Market & Bazaar (check out the post about it here).  Sam pickled the cucumbers, and we enjoyed the spicy cheese & duck eggs.  But the honey butter is the best- have you had honey butter?  If not, you’re missing out!

November Review 5

My friend Alix and I got a chance to see Deb Perelman from Smitten Kitchen!  There were so many people at Politics & Prose to see her!  Checkout her cookbook and blog for some great recipes!

November Review 7

We have 2 cats who have really enjoyed getting wedding gifts.  Well, mostly the boxes that the gifts come in- Van Gogh loves to relax among the bubble wrap and paper!  One of the many gifts was a cookbook- and we tried this Shepherd’s Pie recipe!

November Reivew 8

Another Penn Quarter Farmer’s Market week!  The goodies were: bok choy, yogurt (to go with Fall Granola), broccoli, cheese, apples, pear and arugula!

November Review 9

Last May, when I attended Eat, Write, Retreat (check out my post about it) I met a lot of wonderful bloggers.  One of them was Olga (blog: Mango & Tomato; Twitter: @MangoTomato), we tried out the new DGS Delicatessen in Dupont Circle for lunch, and I had a delicious Salmon Pastrami Sandwich on a bagel.

November Review 10

As I mentioned, we had a low-key Thanksgiving.  After running the So Others Might Eat Turkey Trot 5K– Sam, myself and his brother went to Hill Country Barbecue for an all-you-can-eat dinner.  As always, Hill Country did not disappoint!  Although my favorite was the green bean casserole- it’s been so long since I’ve had it!

November Review 11

The past week’s Penn Quarter Farmer’s Market finds were: eggs, turnips, cheese, pears, eggs & meat sticks!

Baltimore Farmer’s Market & Bazaar

Since moving to DC, I’ve often reserved several weekends throughout the year to visit my friend Beth in Baltimore (past posts: Baltimore & a Cherry-Chocolate Birthday Cake, June Review).  On this last visit Sam came with, and thanks to Beth, we had a chance to explore the Baltimore Farmer’s Market & Bazaar!  For any of you visiting Baltimore, this is definitely something you should check out on a Sunday morning!

Baltimore Farmer's Market 1

What: Baltimore Farmer’s Market & Bazaar– Maryland’s largest producers-only market; the bazaar has crafts and collectibles
When: every Sunday between April 1 – December 23; 7am-12pm (for 2012)
Location: 407 E Saragota St, Baltimore MD

Baltimore Farmer's Market 2

The market was originally situated at Market Place, so more residents could have fresh produce in the city- but construction in 1983 forced a relocation to Pratt and President Streets.  By 1985, it became so popular, and needed a shelter from rain, it’s location was moved once again under the Jones Falls Expressway at Holliday and Saratoga Streets.

Baltimore Farmer's Market

What can you find there?  Pretty much everything: seasonal fruits and vegetables, poultry, seafood, beef, pork, lamb, bison, chicken, goat, turkey, rabbit, fresh baked goods, herbs, milk, yogurt, butter, eggs and cheese products.

Baltimore Farmers Market 4

There were many food vendors selling beef sandwiches, omelets, breakfast burritos, crepes, pies, quiches, soups & Zeke’s Coffee (local small batch roaster)!

Baltimore Farmers Market 5

All markets are fun to walk through, eat a little and see what farmers have brought (or what other people are buying).

Baltimore Farmers Market 6

What are some of your favorite farmer’s markets? What do you love to pick up when you go?

Baltimore Farmers Market 7

Sam and I picked up these goodies, and the next day we made this breakfast!
