It was fun to see so many girls there, as we don't get the chance to catch up outside of running events that often! And the setup, at the Winthrop Barn Theatre in Riverview, was everything that I hoped it would be and more. I got there right around 7 when it started, so I didn't have to wait in line long to get my red wine and start in on the food. There was more food than I could eat, and I didn't eat anything before I left. That's saying something. They had vendors setup inside the venue serving all kinds of different foods.
Some of what I enjoyed:
Pimento Cheese, black eyed pea salad, and cucumber sandwiches from Corner Store
Salmon and Corn Pudding and I can't remember where it was from.
The theme was to go along with the Kentucky Derby this weekend, so a lot of people wore big hats. I didn't have anything so I didn't wear a hat, but I thought the theme was so cute!
And still more food...
Pickled Chicken on Biscuits from Wimamau
An amazing burger with all kinds of toppings you couldn't see from Green Iguana
Mini cupcakes and soft sugar cookies from the Enjoi Food Truck
And believe it or not, there were at least a few other things there that I just didn't remember to get pictures of that I ate.
I did come home with some stuff as well, but my two favorite goodies that I brought with me were bread from 20 Shekels Bread and peaches and oranges from Parkesdale Farm Market. I dug into the peaches and the insane Ezekiel bread first thing Saturday morning before heading out on a bike ride.
The Ezekiel Bread is the best I've tasted, though I do have limited experience. The company also makes a chocolate blackberry bread that I sampled at the event that I wanted to eat endlessly. I will definitely be picking more of that bread up when I run out of what I bought at the event.
The breakfast fueled me nicely for my Saturday morning ride. Bike riding won't get old. I can already tell...
Along with breakfast with Tim on Sunday morning, it was a pretty perfect weekend.
Was this weekend for you one that flew by, or were you able to enjoy time to yourself and hanging out with friends as well?
Do you eat Ezekiel Bread? Where else can I find good ones?
