June 29: What food!!!

Amazing Homemade Ricotta Gnocchi
It was a foodie extravaganza, unpreplanned, as always. Wines came in abundance, too, as seems to be the case each week.

Pictures of some of the foods follow after the listing.

It's too bad we have no audio record of the oohs, ahhhhs, and outright squeals that greeted the deviled eggs, and the yummmms all around for all the other delights, including these (from the paper slips describing the dishes):
  • Homemade gnocchi, with homemade ricotta as a prime ingredient
  • Pistachio nuts and sunflower seeds
  • Vegan blueberry pie (Blueberries, Ginger, Sugar, Wheat & White Flour, Cornstarch & Salt)
  • Green Beans Vinaigrette
  • Black-eyed Peas (meat-free)
  • Mediterranean Coucous w/Lentil Salad (w/vinaigrette, tomatoes, arugula, mint) - and Feta
  • Cucumbers & Dill w/garlic and lemon & a bit of Feta
  • Last Spring 09 greens from Campsie garden w/lemon mustard vinaigrette
  • Blueberry (barely) cornmeal poundcake from Molly Wizenberg's A Homemade Life
  • Buttermilk Vanilla ice cream - local pasteurized cream and milk, Elmwood eggs
  • Blue-Black Sauce for cake or ice cream
  • Polenta with sundried tomato/onion/bacon/cream sauce
  • Polenta with garlicky greens and pecans (ovo-lacto-vegetarian)
  • Reed Valley Orchard Black Raspberries and Blueberries - Picked Today. Finger Food for Tasting
