Hey All, My volunteer group- the Junior Friends of the Campagna Center, puts on the Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend every year to benefit the Campagna Center, a local non-profit in Alexandria. This year the Taste of Scotland is on Friday, Nov 30 at The Atrium Building (where Society Fair is), and the Greenery sales (at The Campagna Center), amazing Grand Feature Parade (downtown Alexandria), and Home Tours (around Old Town Alexandria) will be Saturday, December 1. We still need sponsors, and if you are even a single person sponsor or couple sponsor- you get a nice little package of tickets to everything and you get an invite to the dignitaries breakfast. The event tickets are also live! This is a really fun event, and if you want to really have a blow-out that day, that evening in the boat parade in Old Town. There is WAY more information here, plus pictures and etc, etc. https://www.campagnacenter.org/scottishwalkweekend So come stop by and buy your Christmas wreath or greenery, watch the parade, drink scotch and eat some good food at a big party with some Scottish revelers, and snoop in peoples fancy houses, come on out! (We also normally need volunteers for the Home Tours as docents, so if you would like to volunteer, I might captain a house even, send me a message.)
There was a time, not too long ago, when I was a complete ignoramus when it came to identifying greens in my salad (I can say the same, years ago, about sashimi stored in the counter, and it took work to overcome). I studied for awhile, literally plucking out every leaf in my mixed-green salads, and working to identify them, going so far as to memorize the appearance of the blades. After awhile, I could nail just about every green in every salad. But now, I'm beginning to falter. Here's a bone-up tip: A Visual Guide To Salad Greens, text by Esther Sung, photos by Chris Astley, on epicurious.com. If you can't identify all 14 from sight, continue to study, and then when you're finished with this, move on to the next level. But only if you want to be a total loser.
