A History or Capitol Hill Brewing

The Hill is Home unearths drawings and adverts from the "Washington Brewery Company", which pairs well with WeLoveDC's coverage of a new local brewery.

blockquote>With the reopening of Eastern Market, it seems only right to look at the pre-history of what is again the center of our neighborhood. Long before Cluss built his masterpiece, there was another market, one which L’Enfant had planned into his earliest drawings of Washington DC: Eastern Branch Market.

Pumpkins!

The local market has a ton of wonderful pumpkins that we're trying out recipes with. This week was the warty "Galeuse d'Eysines," which I think will get turned into something sweet (though the pumpkin fries weren't half bad).

Another Great Community Event - P&C Market

P&C

Fresh off the heels of last night's [[http://audreyandjon.com/blog/20091025/literary-feast|community dinner]], tonight we went to a neighborhood roast pig / pot luck dinner at [[http://www.facebook.com/pages/Washington-DC/PC-Market/164589065004|P&C Market]].

A Literary Feast

Literary Feast

Last night we participated in the 5th annual Capitol Hill [[http://aliteraryfeast.org/|Literary Feast]]. We prioritized four books/cuisines and were delighted to be assigned to the Unaccustomed Earth dinner. The book is a collection of short stores, all about first generation Bengali-Americans and their struggles to blend their parents' Indian heritage with their American upbringing. Its an outstanding book, especially for anyone whose family has recently emigrated to America (from anywhere, not just India).

Menu week of 18 October

This week we took advantage of the first fall crops to have a harvest-focused menu. We had thought ahead a little and bought some of the staples we'd need at Harris Teeter the week before. So we had no need to go to Safeway, and bought everything for the week at Eastern Market.

Fall Harvest

fall harvest.

This week fall arrived in full force in DC (actually, temperatures more like winter, but the first taste of cold anyhow...). We wanted to take advantage of the fall bounty suddenly available at Eastern Market, and so we spent most of our day preparing a tasty Italian-inspired fall harvest dinner (yes we began at 10 am by roasting said harvest vegetables...).
