i went saturday to evanston farmers market~one of the best in the city. i had my wine group that night, and wanted to get some fresh veggies for my dish, and wanted them to come from piedmont, if possible. boy..i really lucked out. piedmontese beef-just a piece-i will sear, and some of the most gorgeous vegetables. there were purple and white striped heirloom beans-(originally from piedmont!) purple beans, yellow beans and green. i made a nice bean salad with orange muscat vinaigrette, purple carrots.
then, i seared the delicious beef. i had some stuff leftover, so i sauteed the rest of the mushrooms, added it to the leftover quinoa and kale, and off to taste wine i go.
i got to andrea's house, and she suggested putting everything together. who knew? i was so sad that my dish didn't turn out as i had invisioned it, yet it looked beautiful, and everyone loved it!yay!
