The market was crowded this morning with all the extra shoppers
out for the Big Cooking Event coming up: Thanksgiving!
Hope you’re all planning to enjoy a lovely meal with friends and/or
family – and don’t forget to come shop local at our Small
Business Shopping Day on the 29th! Pop-Up Mar Vista!
Here are all the elements of a traditional Thanksgiving meal:
Potatoes, sweet potatoes, bread, onions, garlic (in my house,
anyway), pies, herbs, and of course veggies!
And Farm Style Cooking for Kids had a nice twist on Mashed
potatoes: make them with ricotta! Yummy!
By the way, the bread above is from the Frogs Organic Bakery, and
they also make these terrific-looking pastries. More Yum!
And in case you wanted a break from all the Turkey-related food,
the Grilled Cheese truck had the classic Mac-n-Cheese Grilled cheese
And Mike Bonin’s office is partnering with the Mar Vista Farmers
Market to collect food donations for the Westside Food Bank –
drop-off locations here at the market and at Mike Bonin’s CD 11
offices in West LA and Westchester.
Have a wonderful week and a wonderful Holiday! And don’t forget a
few flowers for the table…
