Weekend Recap + Dining for Friends Lunch

Another beautiful weekend in Greensboro has passed us by filled with outdoor celebrations and friends. I spent Friday night with friends in the Greensboro Children’s Museum Edible Schoolyard at their annual Green Acres Gala. It was a perfect evening to spend in the garden and walk through downtown with movie playing and fireworks shooting over the baseball stadium. A special shout out to my friend Jim King who won my cooking class in the Green Acres auction – I can’t wait to brainstorm menu ideas with you!

Saturday I woke up early to hit the Greensboro Curb Market and pick up goodies for my Dining for Friends lunch. With only $15 in cash, I picked up a huge loot of fresh vegetables, fresh breads and berries. I used my market loot to finish off a locally inspired lunch menu for some very generous friends who helped raise much-needed support for Triad Health Project. We spent Saturday afternoon squeezed in like sardines on my purple picnic table – laughing, eating and discussing everything from arts to bugs. The blueberry infused vodka lemonade helped my afternoon snooze.

After spending Sunday afternoon eating Chinese Dumplings from a food truck while shopping the Hand to Hand Market, I wondered – who thinks there is nothing to do in Greensboro? Too much, I say. I’ll post the recipes from my lunch this week!
