It’s also a great time to grill, if for no other reason than to avoid heating up the kitchen. I bought a sirloin from Wright’s Longhorn Beef this week and if you haven’t tried Longhorn, you are missing out. So tender and flavorful, you can scarcely believe it. Like goats, Longhorn cattle browse as well as eat grass, so the meat is extra high in healthy Omega-3 fatty acids and super flavorful.
This Saturday Celtic Seafare will be at the Barton Creek Market. Garbo’s Lobster truck will be there, too.
French Toast with Pear Syrup with pecans and blueberry sausage; Rabbit, Smoked Kielbasa and Potato Hash with onions, poblanos, and a fried egg; Grilled Chicken Torta with purslane, Dos Lunas queso Oaxaca, refried beans, and chipotle mayonnaise; Pork Picadillo Taco with pico de gallo; Cafe a la Olla Mexican coffee with molasses, brown sugar, and spices; and Watermelon and Verbena Agua Fresca.
See you at the Market!
