Weekly Roundup: Farmer’s Market Edition

Apartment 4

The light in the new apartment. Hoping to get some more photos together this weekend.

I left my apartment without my umbrella this morning, so I’m desperately hoping that the sky won’t explode this afternoon. But otherwise, it’s a small glitch in an otherwise lovely Friday. This weekend will be filled with farmer’s markets; I’m planning on visiting the new Eastern Market on Saturday and the Dupont Farmer’s market on Sunday, and I can’t wait to get my hands on those local fruits and vegetables. I’ll also be attending the  “Meet the Peeps Artists” party at Artomatic (6:00-9:00 on Saturday night, if anyone wants to go and see Peeptown Cupcake and the other peeps dioramas in action).

New recipes I want to try from this week’s Internet adventures:

  • Many thanks to Amelia at Gradually Greener for trying out black bean brownies. Apparently, they live up to the hype.

And in other news:

  • The new Eastern Market reopens this weekend, and Daily Candy has an excellent guide to the best of the Market’s vendors.
  • Ezra Klein, formerly of The American Prospect and one of the policy wonks over at the Internet Food Association, has landed a new Washington Post food column.
  • DC Foodies writes about a new cooking class at CulinAerie, a local cooking school, for home cooks who want to get beyond basics. It sounds exactly like what I’m looking for. Now if only I could afford the class . . .
  • The City Paper’s Young and Hungry blog has been doing a series on all the restaurants that made the Young and Hungry Dining Guide. I don’t what it was about their write up of Banh Mi D.C. Sandwich that struck me so much, but ever since then I’ve been craving a good bahn mi. Maybe it’s because I used to eat them all the time when I lived in Seattle? Still, I doubt I’ll be making it out to Falls Church anytime soon.

Have a great weekend!

    The new place looks great. I’m not so sure about those black bean brownies. You will have to let me know how they turn out.
