Here's the scoop on the upcoming Harvest Dinner at Lapellah featuring produce from superstar farmer April Jones and her crew at Gus & Co. This info comes courtesy of my friend and member of the Gus & Co. crew Hillary (also of Pikku Maatila/Little Bunny Hill Farm).
Lapellah Harvest Dinner Menu August 19, 2009
Oh, the deliciousness will ensue again in just a few days. This ridiculously lucky/blessed/fortunate farmgirl gets to go to the second Harvest Dinner at Lapellah, too!!!!!! Life just gets better all the time. The April Jones crew will be representing, big-time.
Fifteen minutes of yesterday were kind of crummy. But I'm over it. It's hard not to laugh at someone that leans out of a car window and yells horrible things at a complete stranger standing half-a-football-field away. Really? Who does that?
How can I keep making the world a better place one jar of delicious canned goods at a time if I dwell on such things? I can't.
Enjoy the menu. Try not to salivate on your keyboard.
