Delicious Homemade Pie [Eatin' Fresh!]

This week we’ve had some perfect weather, relatively warm, but crisp.  You breathe in, and it just makes you feel good.  So to match our lovely fall weather, today we’re bringing you a fall treat to match (and the principle ingredient can come from our local Farmers Market).  So what’s perfect for Autumn, warm but crisp, and makes you feel good when you smell it?

Why, apple pie, of course!

Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho [in the kitchen]

In lieu of our regular Eatin’ Fresh! this week, FoBoBlo would like to offer up an idea for what to make with some of the goods you can get at the FoBo Farmers’ Market, specifically, Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho.  Yes, “cold tomato soup.”  Although if you’ve ever had it, you know just how ridiculous it is to call this refreshing, slightly spicy dish merely cold tomato soup.  This isn’t Campbells, this isn’t Heinz.  This is fantastic, home made, easy and quick gazpacho.  The time of year where this dish is in style will be ending quick, so click through to check out a tasty looking recipe, then head on over to the FoBo Farmers’ market today and pick up all the goods you need.

Happy Peruvian Independence Day!

Pisco Sour from Ceiba

Pisco Sour from Ceiba

If you’re too busy celebrating your fun-employment to go out and get a pisco sour in the FoBo, I thought I’d share a recipe straight from mi madre. I have it on good authority, also,  that L St. liquor store, Barmy Wine & Liquor (1912 L St NW), has both pisco and a delivery service.

  1. 3 parts pisco
  2. 2 parts simple syrup
  3. 1 part lime juice
  4. 1/2 an egg white
  5. throw in blender with ice
  6. optional: dash of bitters

I’d recomend a toast to celebrate both the glorious liberation of my madre-land and this article on Discovery News about how the Incans benefited from global warming to expand their empire. Cheers!
