And we’re back with the monthly reviews on Fifth Floor Kitchen! What photos did I capture on my iPhone this past month?
This was taken on our last day of our honeymoon in Phuket, Thailand. Check out our posts about it here.
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!
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).
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!
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!
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.
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!
The past week’s Penn Quarter Farmer’s Market finds were: eggs, turnips, cheese, pears, eggs & meat sticks!
