This past weekend the fairgrounds housed the Wild Wind Festival which is a large folk art fall fest of sorts here in our region. It's a Juried Show and has vendors from over 20-some states that attend. It was said that about 7,000 people were there on Saturday. Sunday's weather was awful. But since I was on the grounds anyways...and EARLY...I was able to FINALLY eat the Artichokes from the one vendor that comes each year that I never was able to try up until now.
I told you about me looking forward to seeing more goats and I did just that. The guy who brings them had a few new additions. These lil guys were only 3 weeks old and they didn't get too far away from their parents! There was another one that was tan and brown that was about 8 weeks old and he was a bit more outgoing than these two. Regardless, they were adorable!
I was able to spend quite a bit of time with my parents over the weekend which was nice. It has been wonderful having them at the fairgrounds this summer. They have been working their butts off, too!
I recently ordered from VeganEssentials so I will be having LOTS of new-to-me things to share once I get them in and sampled so stay tuned for that!
It was pretty sweet but had some nice spices mixed in. I added a teaspoon or so of Just Mayo Garlic Mayo to it for a little something different. Yup! You got it! I ate this at 'camp'. I still had some vegan convenience foods on hand that I wanted to finish up before cleaning out the camper for winter storage. I also had some corn chips with this and it scooped up nicely.
I believe I found this new-to-me Sweet Earth product at the Wegmans in Lakewood.
The fried artichokes sound so fun! Sweet little goats!ReplyDelete

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Goats! OMG!
Awww those little goats and that beautiful turtle! The artichokes sound so interesting too.ReplyDelete
I had a Wegmans near me when I went to college and it was the greatest grocery store ever. I miss it so much!
Yeah! Wegman's is great for a wide variety of products! I still have to drive about 30-40 minutes for my nearest Wegman's and with winter coming my trips might be few and far between...sigh...Delete
