Dinner at the Farm

Have you ever had a farm to table dinner?
If not, search it out at your earliest convenience.

Last week Kruger Farms on Sauvie Island was the destination.
Just under that oak treat we joined others on a hot,
sweltery evening for dining and pleasant chatting.
This is the third year my "live-in gardener" and I have
ventured out to Kruger Farms.
The meal is always delicious and this year was no disappointment.
But the best part is meeting others that are looking for dinner under
the oak tree with other food loving people.
Each year we have met people from other parts of the world
or from other states.
I ask how they found this special dinner on their travels
and they tell me they go online, finding it there.
Isn't the internet amazing when it comes to connecting
in positive ways with others?
This year on one side of us was a couple from England
and the other side were four young women from St. Louis, MO.
Just a glimpse because I was too busy visiting
and eating Ahi Tuna, salad, roasted corn, veggies, bread,
panna cotta with fresh fruit.
A Delightful evening under the moon.
Yes, that little dot in the sky is the moon.
 For a hot summer evening, I can highly recommend
dinner on a farm.
Happy weekend, dear friends!

Dinner on a farm....I've never heard of this, Marilyn, how delightful. And you get to meet people from different parts of the world. So wonderful. The food looks great! Who doesn't love roasted corn on the cob? The table setting is simple and elegant.

From Jeanie:

I've never done that -- looks glorious. How wonderful to be at the grand long table with people you know -- and mostly don't! It had to be just delicious (the menu sounds great!) and so very special!

Oooo... I've read about these Farm to Table meals, and I just would love to experience one of those. Don't have them here. Such fun with people from different place, different countries too. And what a delicious menu... and twinkie lights later... LOVELY! :) ((HUGS))
